In October I was fortunate enough to attend the Food Bloggers of Canada 2014 Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia. Having lived in Vancouver for several years before migrating East, I was very excited to be returning for a visit, but also looking forward to meeting so many of my Food Blogger friends from across Canada.
Having arrived a day early to just hang out and find some good eats, Friday arrived and I anxiously started to make my way to the hotel as conference registration was officially open. At the registration desk, there were 3 lovely ladies waving everyone in and handing us these ginormous swag bags. Shareba, from In Search of Yummy-ness, was one of them, and I was so excited to finally put a face to all the social media chatter we’d been doing for quite some time.
With a very busy conference ahead of us and Shareba one of the volunteers, we didn’t get to visit to much, but I know the chatter will continue and perhaps at the next conference we will get to visit a little more. Even before we met in person, Shareba had agreed to be a guest poster on my blog and I’m thrilled to introduce her to you and share her recipe for Chocolate Almond Butter Crescent Rolls! Welcome Shareba!
Thanks for asking me to share a recipe here at Bakersbeans!
As a Media Studies graduate who has worked on two cooking shows, food blogging seemed like a no-brainer to me.
My blog has changed a lot since I started it back in 2010. I think I only posted 8 times that year! Honestly, I really didn’t start to understand how to “blog” until the end of 2012, and even then my photos weren’t great.
I’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into my blog lately, and I think it’s starting to show. Hopefully, it’s easier for people to navigate my website now and get an idea of what I write about.
My content has been changing over the years, but in general I blog about my experiences with food. That includes things like meals at restaurants, recaps of food events, and highlighting products that I like.
Of course, I write about cooking in my kitchen too. I enjoy sharing recipes that are fairly easy to make at home – basically the food that I like to eat. There’s a mix of healthy dishes and indulgent treats.
Food has been such a big part of my life, and I’m thrilled to be a full time food blogger now. It’s been a struggle to get to this point, but right now I’m happy and I think that’s what matters the most.
Speaking of food… here’s a recipe for something I’d like to eat right now. It’s almost 1AM and all I want is comfort food!
- 1 227g tube of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- 8 tsp Nutella (or other chocolate spread)
- 8 tsp Roasted Almond Butter
- 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon, for sprinkling
- Powdered Sugar (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Unroll dough onto an ungreased baking sheet, separate into 8 triangles.
- Spread each triangle with 1 tsp. Nutella and 1 tsp. almond butter.
- Sprinkle each triangle with a pinch of cinnamon.
- Roll up the triangles, from the wide end to the pointy end.
- Bend the rolls into crescent shapes
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool a bit.
- Serve warm, with powdered sugar (optional).
