...Cleaver that is... and I'm okay with that! With all of her glorious motherly ways.
I want to be the mom who bakes, sews and knits.
The only issue is... I don't really do any of those things well, so here's me sharing with you all my 101's.
Laugh with me or at me, I don't care. I just hope I can evolve during this process!

Rhubarb Streusel Muffins Oh My!

They are delicious!

Smitten Kitchen, you've done it again. And thanks to my sister for sending me the link: Rhubarb Streusel Muffins.

What I liked most was that I didn't feel I had to go sparingly on the topping even after putting 1/3 into the batter mix. Yum Yum.

As well, I hand mixed all of the ingredients where I'm normally very lazy about this. But my sister does this quite often and encourages me to do it as well... I always thought it would be too time consuming, but you know what's more time consuming??? Washing all of the parts to the mixer. (ALL of the parts of course means the bowl and the attachment)

...Anyways, it was a lot easier than the recipe page made it look like and these days with an infant and toddler my time is very precious and unavailable. But I say, make'em! They're worth it.

Le Rhubarb...

...Le Voila!


  1. I grabbed some rhubarb at the farmer's market a couple weeks ago and was looking for a great muffin recipe for it. Definitely using this next time. This last time I went for the - I have no idea what to make with this, so I'll just let the whole bunch wilt in the fridge - approach. Not sure it was the right choice... :)

  2. You're making me hungry. Note to self - configure your McCawley/Mousseau visiting schedule around Cindy's baking...

  3. I second Terry's comment and gently remind you that i'll be kicking around toronto next weekend :)


I love comments. They make me happy.
