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.

no churn blueberry ice cream

I had never made no churn ice cream before this Spring….can you believe it?! I finally tried it, and was blown away. Easy to whip up in less than 5 minutes (depending on what mix ins you choose), and shockingly creamy, this is such a fun and simple project for a warm day. Now I’ll always love my ice cream machine and dreamy custard bases, but truly appreciate having such a good option for doing without one!

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.

peach blackberry pie

Say hello to your new favourite Summer pie!  Peaches and blackberries are a match made in heaven.  Sweet peaches are made even better by the pop of flavour that tart blackberries bring (I'm a huge fan of tart things!), and be sure to add a scoop of ice cream on top to really take this pie to the next level.

Now, social media is sometimes the worst....but sometimes it's the absolute best.  I had followed Kristie from The Sweet and Simple Kitchen on instagram for a while now, and a couple weeks ago she messaged me asking to have a baking date!  It was reminiscent of my very first insta-friend meet-up with my now good friend Amy, minus the sleepover that Amy and I had. Ha!

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.
