What my cookbook deadline day looked like: proper, focus-friendly library setting, lots of coffee to keep my tired eyes open, expensive raw juice to boost my moral, and a big mishap: yucky vending machine snacks for lunch (why oh why didn't I bring my own?)
.
After working so hard for weeks and doing 12h work days for the past week, I can't believe it came down to the wire like it did. I'm so tired I can barely stand up, but I feel so happy and proud of what I delievered that I wouldn't trade this experience for the world.
.
But this is just part of the work. I handed in all my recipes, but now I gotta get on with writing the rest of the book's content. My recipes will soon be off to testers (eeek! I'm so nervous about that!), and the photography starts in a week. The cookbook creation process is just as thrilling as I expected it to be, and every day I feel lucky to be living this experience.
.
Now please excuse me as I'll be M.I.A. for the next week, we're leaving for a short vacation and I need to unplug if I want to come back strong. I'll see you on the other side! 🙌🏼

Quick question: Do you enjoy grapefruits in other ways than just halved and served for breakfast? Do you cook or bake with it? If so, what do you like to make with it?

{Cooking with Friends} Rhubarb Week is wrapping up, and I couldn't have hoped for a sweeter ending! Today, I’m welcoming Janice from @kitchenhealssoul.

{Rhubarb Week} Who else is excited that gelato season is upon us? 🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏼
To be honest, in my house, we love the iced treat so much that we enjoy it year-round, even in the heart of winter, although I like to rotate flavors according to seasons. In the spring, I always make a point of churning a batch of this blush pink Rhubarb Gelato. The bright, tart flavor of rhubarb is balanced by the silky smoothness of the Sicilian-style vanilla gelato base, while a hint of orange rounds things off perfectly. It’s a memorable springtime treat, one that, to me, rhymes with good things to come ☀️🍨😎

{Rhubarb Week} I’m a lifetime fan of rhubarb compotes. Every year when I was growing up, my mom would make rhubarb compote, a coulis-like confection with a tartness that tickled the insides of my cheeks and made me salivate. It wasn’t a classic kid-friendly flavor, yet I was irresistibly attracted to it and loved it so much, I would eat it by the spoonful, straight from the jar 🙊🙈
.
In recent years, I’ve picked up on my mom’s tradition and started making my own yearly batch of rhubarb compote. I've made it many different ways, but these days, my favorite combination of flavors comes together in this Rosé, Strawberry, and Rhubarb Compote. This recipe isn’t any more complicated to make than basic rhubarb compote, but it has a depth of flavor and a certain sophistication that makes it worthy of elegant brunch spreads 🥐👌🏼

{Rhubarb Week} I first published the recipe for this Honey, Rhubarb, and Strawberry Bread six years ago, and it is still one of my favorite springtime breakfast treats. It’s flavorful, dreamily tender, and just sweet enough to walk the fine line between snack and dessert—which, handily, makes it suitable for both! 🙌🏼

{Rhubarb Week} Yep, you've read that right! I've decided this week was all about rhubarb. I love rhubarb: it has a fabulous tartness that makes it incredibly versatile. Since this year's new crops are just popping out, I thought we'd all benefit from new inspiration. Rhubarb should be destined to more than crisps and crumbles! 👊🏼

First up is a recipe in which rhubarb is paired with its long-time BFF: strawberries. If you always thought fruit jellies looked impressive, you should know they can be easy to make. Indeed, the recipe for these jewel-like beauties 👆🏼includes a smart hack that comes from none other than Jacques Pépin! Curious?

I know this day is supposed to be about me, but in my mind and my heart, it's all about him. He changed everything. Every day, he reminds me it's worth striving to become a better person. Being a mom is never easy, but it's the best, most thrilling and fulfilling adventure I've ever embarked on. And the best thing is that it's only just beginning! 👩🏼❤️👦🏼
