blueberry rhubarb muffins

Blueberry + rhubarb. Honestly I had never even thought about this combo before, but when I asked for suggestions on Instagram about what to pair with blueberries to spice things up…this combo stuck out!

The sweetness of the blueberries complements the tartness of the rhubarb so so well, and when you bite into these muffins, the colours work so beautifully together as well as pops of purple and pink stand out against the white muffin base. I added a hint of ginger for some depth as well, although you can definitely leave it out if you’re not a fan! And if you can’t find any rhubarb (I realize it’s getting a bit late in the season), you can swap in a different kind of berry (blackberries would be divine!), or simply use more blueberries.

classic chocolate chip cookies

Honestly there’s nothing better than a classic chocolate chip cookie! This is one of my most made recipes, and there’s usually a few kicking around in my freezer at all times.

These cookies have crispy outsides, chewy insides, and taste like my childhood.

Happy Happy New Year friends!

Honestly, I’m not too sad to see 2018 go, and am very much looking forward to 2019 being a fresh start! Resolution always seem to mean well, but I find they’re often too much pressure. And then you mess up and go…well, I guess I have to wait until next year to try again! So I’ve stopped making New Year’s Resolutions, but I do believe that it can be a useful time for reflection and goal planning. What do you want to do with your life? How can you move towards those goals in the next 365 days? Maybe that means making reasonable, bite-sized goals for each month, or chatting with friends to keep you accountable. Don’t feel like you have to change every thing in your life in all at once! Make small, sustainable changes, and go from there!
