I haven’t written a Weekend Cooking post in a long time, but in honor of tomorrow being Mother’s Day in the U.S. I thought I would post a recipe which takes advantage of a fun, seasonal fruit–rhubarb.
Rhubarb is a strange thing. Is it really even a fruit? Probably not. Nevertheless, we tend to use it as such, and these muffins are a great combination of weird but yummy rhubarb and ginger, another slightly stringy and root-y food. (I know, I know, I should be a food blogger. I know just how to describe things in such a way as to leave your mouth watering! Ahem.)
Anyway, with all credit and linkage to my culinary friend Jamie Oliver with whom this recipe originates, I give you Mother’s Day Rhubarb and Ginger Muffins. I made these today and they turned out great, so maybe you can whip up a batch for your own Mother’s Day treat.
I have another reason for writing today, which is to ask for some audiobook recommendations. I’ve kind of gotten out of the habit of listening to audiobooks and I’m hoping to change that by finding a good book to sink my teeth (er, ears) into. Any suggestions?
Hope you’re having a lovely weekend, and a very happy Mother’s Day to all of you out there celebrating and/or being celebrated!
