Rhubarb season is nearly over and I have a solid 2-3 recipes to get to you before it’s done. Hopefully you’re into it…I’ve been on a kick lately!

Honeyed Rhubarb Oatmeal

When you’re presented with a giant freezer bag of fresh rhubarb, there are only so many things you can do with it. Pie is the obvious choice, and then cake, and then muffins, and then a million other baked things, but I also like to stew the rhubarb and save it for later.

You know? Use it as a jam and top my breakfast with it.

I have officially lost my marbles. I am currently on my way home from a music festival with my bestie and sleep just simply isn’t something we did.

Peanut Butter and Honey Banana Bread

Things we did do include: dancing, eating lots of food truck food, singing, wine sipping, cottage living, and hugging. And luckily, catching up on sleep is totally do-able on the train. I have a sexy sleep max and ear plugs!

Hey boys….*uses come hither motion with finger*

Happy Friday!

Whole Wheat Skillet Rhubarb Cobbler

Today is all about music, girl time, and singing loudly in the car. I’m road tripping friends! And with my bestie, so there is nothing that can get in the way of alllllll the fun! Except maybe a traffic jam…or an accident..or a lot of rain…or like, a medical emergency. But that’s not going to happen!

I hope.

The heat has been rather incredible over the last few days. Well, mostly the humidity, but summer is definitely showing itself.

Overnight Cinnamon Iced Coffee

I actually like the heat. I work in an air-conditioned building, I live in an apartment that keeps itself cool, and really don’t mind sweating as long as I have a fan and can find ways to beat the heat.

On Thursday night one of my oldest friends had her first baby. And in a way, this baby is the first baby for all of us. “Us” being a group of girls who grew up in the same small town and who have known each other and been friends for years. I haven’t met this tiny human yet, but feel so overcome with love already that it hurts.

Buttermilk Waffles

I found out that baby Lillian was born on Friday. after sending a text to my friend along the lines of “when will the baby be here?”. Within minutes her husband responded with a picture of a tiny baby girl and a message that said “she’s already here”! I immediately burst into tears.

I’m trying to get myself out of a habit. A chocolate bar eating habit that is strange and obsessive and way too real.

Seedy Chocolate Almond Butter Bites

It’s not that I don’t want to eat chocolate every day. I actually think eating what you want to in moderation is a good thing. The problem is that I am spending too much money on “treats” that have nothing good for me in them and feel like I need to do a big time swap. As in, not eat so many packaged chocolate bars and try to make my own chocolate-filled goodies that actually satisfy my mad mid-afternoon cravings and have some protein in them.

Colourful, pretty, and full of good stuff. Bring me allllll of the salads.

Vegetarian Sushi Salad

It was so hot this past weekend and we were outside for most of it. We spent the days exploring and strolling around Montreal with Paul’s parents and found that at the end of the day, a big bowl of salad or something fresh was all we really wanted.

Restaurant-style hummus right here. The creamiest, the tastiest…I love this stuff.

Perfectly Smooth Hummus

And it’s all in the chickpeas themselves.

The secret? You’ve got to peel them. I’ve made a lot of homemade hummus before, which always tastes delicious, but if you want that fancy, smooth hummus, you need to peel your chickpeas.
