Well doesn’t time just FLY? I know it’s been a hot minute since I posted anything but I am back with a winner so I hope you can please forgive me!
Lets roll up the sleeves and dig right in shall we? The weather is finally stunning here in Toronto. Garden centres are packed to the rafters full of every colour and type of plant known to man. It is actually one of my favourite places to wander in the world and according to the scads of people, I’d say I am not alone.
Spring is bursting from its seems right now. Lilacs are in full bloom which takes me directly back to my childhood. The mister and I are planning what decorative trees and bushes to plant. I want several lilac bushes near our bedroom so that once in bloom our bedroom will smell like heaven!
Now is also the time to enjoy rhubarb and thankfully it is readily available. Now I KNOW the last sweet recipe I posted back in April was rhubarb so you will have to forgive me if it is not your jam but it really is mine. Tart and sweet and oh so pretty. I just couldn’t help myself.
Yesterday I was feeling like I was stuck in a creative rut. Client shots weren’t flowing as I would have liked, so I stopped and did two things that love. Gardening and baking. The mister had a small window of time so we picked up a few things at the garden centre and then remembering the rhubarb, I baked a cake. An unbelievably tasty cake.
I baked this one with vegan butter but next time I am going to use olive oil. I am quite sure it will be just as delicious.
