hot Rhubarb day
WHEW!! WHAT A HOT MONDAY~~ and this rest of this week sounds the same!~ 90 degrees outside!! BUT we have had such a gorgeous long spring one certainly cannot complain!
So yesterday at the kitchen was all bout rhubarb recipes!! Made some simple butter crumb streusel topping shown above to go ontop of some strawberry rhubarb muffins. Then some rhubarb crisps with just a touch of some strawberries. Gosh the fruits better hurry up I am quickly using up my stock in the freezers from last season!! LOL
These are the nekked muffins.
Just a thin layer of the struesel topping lets the beautiful red color come thru so nice.
And had orders for banana nut bread so made a few of them up too.
So on the list accomplished so far are the above items along with some of my round cheddar rustic herb bread, lemon poppyseed muffins, peanut butter whoopie pies, choc chip cookies, my caramel shortbread delights and a few loaded carrot cakes. Today will be all about the doughs that need overnight time in the fridge. Babkas, brioche and also some ravioli.
*WELCOME to my blog world. My wonderful hubby and I live with our 3 "boys" Buster, Bubba and Billy our dogs on a small hobby farm in beautiful sw michigan. We grow fruits and veggies and of cource by our name raise chickens for eggs. Also we have goats, horses, ducks, geese, turkeys, peacocks and sevearl guinnea hens, and 4 cats. A few years ago I obtained my state food license and lease a fully bakery kitchen to sell my homemade from scratch baked goods, jams, jellies, and lots of sweet confections. NOW we are selling baked goods at Floral Touch Florist in Fennville MI and also sell to local stores.
I love primitive painting and do alot of wood crafts and also altered scrapbooking.
Here I will share our life and adventures on a farm with yall.
~~LIFE IS GOOD~~
