Top patriotic cookies


A stylish Canada Day recipe

You know how nothing (nothing) is more inviting than the scent of freshly baked cookies wafting through a room? Well I figured I’d bring that sense of homebaked goodness to the ELLE Canada offices on Thursday. Perfect way to lead into a long weekend, right?

It’s been a long week of fact-checking, interviewing celebrities (stay tuned to find out who!), and avoiding the gym, so naturally I decided the best way to top off the week would be to wake up early Thursday morning and bake for the ELLE Canada team. No one yields to the mid-day sugar crash like our editorial team, and I’m always happy to provide the sweets.

I decided on gooey maple brownies to celebrate my favourite Canadian flavouring—Happy birthday Canada!—with a recipe plucked from my trusty gluten-free baking book. (Since my diagnosis with a gluten allergy just over a year ago, my library of cookbooks has undergone a total wheat-free overhaul.)

The best part of the baking experience is seeing a person take their first bite. And if I have anything to say about it, their eighth or 80th one.

Let’s swap recipes! Send me your favourite ones for homemade treats.

P.S. I like cookies!

Do you prefer to bake tried-and-true recipes or always try something new?

I’m all about presentation: this goes for everything from setting up an Instagram shot (if your framing isn't perfect, I'll snatch that iPhone right out of your hands), to an everyday outfit amped up with a wicked heel or pair of statement earring I've 'smithed myself. My maxed-out schedule doesn’t stop me from squeezing dinner with friends – did I mention I’m an aspiring foodie? -- between bootcamp classes, goldsmithing, and planning my next trip.
