The weather was too nice today to be in the kitchen cooking: low 70’s, blue sky, a gentle breeze and no bugs!! I spent all afternoon working in my flowers; some got moved, some got planted they all got their spring vitamins. All that’s left to do is mulch and that is going to wait a week or so just in case there are some lazy perennials that may still make an appearance!
I have learned from experience that it’s best to have patience as some flowers take longer than others to appear! All of that exercise did perk up the appetite, which takes us back to the kitchen. A friend of mine requested a rhubarb muffin recipe. Sharon this one is for you!
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
Mix together and add to above mixture:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
Add: 1 cup finely chopped rhubarb
Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full and top with following mixture:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Bake for 25-30 min at 350 degrees or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Makes 12 muffins depends on how large you want them. Enjoy our long awaited warm weather!
