Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins
Strawberries, rhubarb, and spelt flour make for one heck of a muffin! These beauties are for the upcoming book Ripe From Around Here
by Jae Steele and the recipe can be found on her site
. Yes folks, I am testing for another book and am truly enjoying Jae’s recipes which focus on local ingredients. These pictures don’t do these muffins justice, they are fabulous:

I definitely have other recipes that I am excited to try out so stay tuned for more RFAH porn!
This week I also made Spring Onion Pancakes. If you’ve never had these chinese delights I highly encourage you to. They are pretty simple to make and with the abundance of spring onions at the farmer’s market it’s a great time!
Spring Onion Pancakes
The recipe is pretty standard: for 4 pancakes I used 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup boiling water, and 1 tbs. of cold water. Stir to form dough and then on a lightly floured surface knead for a few minutes. Cover and let rest for about half an hour. Divide dough into 4 balls and roll each into a disc. Spread some sesame oil and sprinkle chopped onions. Fold in half and roll into a log and then roll the log lengthwise to make a spiral (kinda like a cinnamon roll). Let rest for 15 minutes. Flatten out each one into a flat disc and your onions should be incorporated into the pancake. In a skillet add a 2 tbs of oil and fry til golden.
They are oh so tasty! Next time I will defintely make more because these were gobbled up in a minute. The dipping sauce is Blackberry Wine Soy Sauce with some toasted sesame seeds and onions added. Here’s a close-up of the dipping sauce in my cute little fish bowl!
And last but not least, have you tried Coconut Bliss yet? If not, what are you waiting for?? Best vegan ice cream EVER! Seriously!
This is the Naked Coconut flavor with some sliced strawberries – pure bliss! Luna & Larry definitely got the name of their product spot on – this is coconut bliss! So go out and get some, you won’t be disappointed!
Til next time…
