So here’s the deal:
- My name is Melissa. But you can call me Mel
- I have red hair.
- I love to bake.
- I am Canadian.
- I live in a small town in Ontario with my fiancé, aka Mr Ginge.
- He is responsible for turning me into a foodie.
- I have a thing for cookies
- He likes classics like bread pudding or apple pie.
- I (usually) like to make everything from scratch
- Baking is in my blood. My Gran and Grandma are huge inspirations in my cooking ( and the stories I hear bout theirs!)
- I love books (my nose is always in one), especially cookbooks. Especially old cookbooks. The more dogeared, creased, and stained the better. ( my prized cookbook possession is a well loved 1915 copy of a White Rose Flour baking book)
- I have several vices including cheese (especially cheese curds!), the Food Network, chocolate, and recipes. I think our combined collection of recipes could rival our small town library’s and possibly even our local bookstore. Please send help.
- This blog is about simple comfort recipes. Recipes that I throw together, or that I have fond and clear memories of growing up. Heavy on the sugar.
- My sister would like you to know that she is the bestest sister ever (She is the one dressed as Freddie Mercury). For realz.

Salt is Kosher, flour is all-purpose, eggs are large, butter is salted, and the kitchen is a mess.
