Rhubarb Almond Tart

Spring had a late start this year, but I think we finally made it. The farmer’s market on my way to work every Tuesday finally opened and I couldn’t resist the rosy bunches of rhubarb. In fact, I actually turned around about 50 metres after passing just to get my hands on one. I also couldn’t resist taking pictures of all the blooming things I’ve finally been seeing.

When I was younger, I used to suck on tart rhubarb stalks out of the garden or eat the crunchy stems raw dipped into sugar.

Froot Loop Cake

A while ago, after eating ice cream with cinnamon toast crunch, I had the idea of baking with cereal. Until today, I only got as far as this cereal milk white Russian. Now I’m adding this cake to our cereal repertoire.

Green Cocktail

And it worked.

Celery Salad (And The Perfect Soft-Boiled Egg)

If you read my blog at all regularly, you’ll know I don’t often post salads. I’ve dabbled here and there, but the truth is, I don’t really like salads. Especially ones with lettuce.

The Plenty More cookbook by Yotam Ottolenghi is the cookbook that contains by far the most salads I’ve made and eaten (and liked!). This is one of those salads.

Molten-ish Chocolate Cake

The other day I was craving a chocolate dessert and I came across this recipe on Food 52 for an ooey gooey molten-ish chocolate cake. The article begins by explaining how difficult molten chocolate cakes can be to unmold and then goes on to say that the authors have created a foolproof recipe. It seemed like the perfect Friday night dessert.
