Rhubarb and Strawberry Crumble

This dessert is one of my Dad's favorite desserts, I remember nibbling on rhubarb dipped in sugar as a child and Dad asking Mum to make rhubarb crumble. When I buy rhubarb in the store the folks at the check out often ask me what to do with it. Recently I have seen it braised and used in salads, made into a compote and roasted with honey. I love making a batch with strawberries, then adding to yogurt, or oatmeal or making crumble.

Meyer Lemon Cake

This cake is a simple lemon cake inspired by Dom's Mums Lemon cake I just used Meyer lemons. I love these lemons and only really got hooked on them since moving to America. Its not just me who loves these lemons but Ozoz from Kitchen butterfly made a wonderful bunch of recipes with them I especially love this one Chunky Meyer Lemon Caramel Sauce  and she also wrote a wonderful post dedicated to them, did you know they are named after Frank Meyer, an employee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture who brought the fruit to the United States in the early 1900s, after discovering them in China.

I saw a recipe for sprouted Mung beans on Kiran's blog and if you don't follow her blog you must, creative recipes, great photography and a fun personality. I have actually been meaning to sprout beans for the longest time, its fun to see them grow and they are super nutritious. Sprouted beans are a a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Riboflavin, Folate, Copper and Manganese.

Musings and Butterfly Cupcakes

These little butterfly cupcakes were one of my favorites when I was little easy to make and they really do look like butterflies. I added a little tea to the butter icing and decorated with licorice. I also like them as years ago as a student one of my neighbors said I was like a butterfly.
