Blackberry Ginger Cardamom Scones

Blackberry Ginger Cardamom Scones

Picture it in your mind, wild blackberries ready for the picking in an urban setting. Its kind of mind bending, especially for someone like me, who doesn’t immediately think of urban wild food foraging. While I may not be inclined to attempt it myself, I can’t help but notice all the people who are picking wild blackberries along Cambie Street, or parking their bikes at Stanley Park Seawall to gobble up a few. I find it fascinating and can’t help be a bit envious of their skills and adeptness for survival on wild food, if needed. Or perhaps, its their vulnerability to try something wild without the safety of a grocery store, fruit stand, or even home garden. Sadly, my connection to nature is not that close yet.

Triple Chocolate Chai Hot Cross Buns

Triple Chocolate Chai Hot Cross Buns

For many, Easter comes with many traditions. And Hot Cross Buns are as synonymous with Easter as chocolate eggs.

HOT and cross. Remember the nursery rhyme? “One a penny, two a penny. Hot cross buns.” The rhyme and the word bun always creates an inner child like excitement that conjures memories of yeast smells oozing from baking.
