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.

strawberry rhubarb tart

Helloooo Summer tart!  Sweet strawberries, tart rhubarb, and the butteriest short bread crust come together in a heavenly combo to make your tastebuds so so happy.  It's a melt in your mouth crust with a sweet tart curd filling.  Definitely recommend!

And yes, if it isn't 100% obvious by now, strawberry rhubarb continues to be my ultimate favourite flavour combo. 

See this cheesecake, this ice cream, or this pie for proof.

roasted strawberry rhubarb ice cream

Can you tell that strawberry rhubarb is a big deal over here?  Seriously one of the best flavour combos of all time, especially when they're roasted together to really bring out their flavours.  Although I must say that I'm not a huge fan of roasting strawberries unless they're local ones....the California ones the grocery stores carry the rest of the year just aren't the same!  Honestly they just taste like disappointment.  Ha!  Which is why I go a bit strawberry crazy for a very short period of time.

saskatoon rhubarb pie

Hello!  Today we have such a wonderful (and maybe unusual?) Summer pie to talk about.  If you're unfamiliar with saskatoons, they're kind of like a smaller blueberry, with almost a nutty taste.  Hard to describe!  But they make amazing pies, even if they are a pain in the butt to pick!  Ha!  They tend to ripen individually, versus blueberries which often ripen in clusters.  Soooo.....when you're picking them for money, the saskatoons are much harder!  I was always a terrible berry picker when my family had more berries (we used to grow a ton of raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries), and I didn't even bother to attempt to make money picking saskatoons.  Hahaha.

rhubarb almond layer cake

Hello friends!  If you're a regular around here, you may have noticed some updates to this space!  (It truly looks its best on a computer screen so if you have time please view it there!).  I am so happy with how it came out.  I love dabbling in a little bit of design here and there, although it always makes me realize that it's probably a good thing that I didn't make a career out of it....it's tough!!  And the sweet hand drawn graphics that you'll see pop up as you poke around were done by one of my dearest friends Clara from Clara Cecilia Photography!  She is an Edmonton photographer, dabbles in design on the side, and is such an incredible artist in whatever medium she chooses.

rhubarb galette

Here we go with another rhubarb recipe!  This one involves the easiest pastry dough ever, and is perfect for when you don't quite feel like committing to an entire pie.  It's quick, it's easy, and it's delicious.

We're talking about a rhubarb galette!  Simply make the dough, chill for an hour while you get the rhubarb filling ready and preheat the oven, and then put it all together.  I chose to make a fancy pattern on top, but it tastes the same whether you do that, or simply dice the rhubarb.  Galettes are so perfect for those long, warm summer nights, and I look forward to eating many while sitting on my patio!
