Rhubarb Cheesecake Blondies

Rhubarb Cheesecake Blondies

Of all the baking I’ve done with rhubarb over the years, one of the things I’ve never paired it with is chocolate, and I wasn’t about to start now. I just don’t feel like that’s a good match AT ALL, which is why I swapped out the brownie layer of these squares for a blondie. […]

Every year when Winter seems to be dragging on forever, I start researching rhubarb recipes, so I’m ready to go when Spring finally arrives. So when I got a text from my friend Erin one weekend at the end of May asking if I wanted any rhubarb from her garden, I automatically knew what my first […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Breakfast Crisp

Strawberry Rhubarb Breakfast Crisp

This is hands-down the best summer breakfast you’re ever going to have. I started making breakfast crisps at the very beginning of this blog, when I adapted Smitten Kitchen’s Breakfast Apple Granola Crisp with an all-rhubarb version. Deb subsequently updated the recipe in her cookbook, and that’s been my go-to for the last few years. […]

Rhubarb Poppy Seed Dressing

I’m boldly going where no Planet Byn recipe has gone before today: a savoury rhubarb recipe. I tried to make a rhubarb chutney once and it was a disaster, so I’ve given other savoury rhubarb recipes the side eye ever since. Rhubarb barbecue sauce? No thanks. Raw rhubarb in a salsa? Nah. However, a rhubarb […]

Rhubarb Mint Julep

Rhubarb Mint Julep

The collection of rhubarb based cocktails here on Planet Byn is getting quite extensive, and I love it. We’ve made two simple syrups to stir into cocktails, infused vodka with strawberries and rhubarb, made a margarita with a jam base, and last summer a delicious mojito. I had this mint julep recipe bookmarked since last […]

Simple Stewed Rhubarb

Last week I got a text from my friend Nicole wishing me “Happy Rhubarb Season!”. She knows me so well! It is truly the most wonderful time of the year. I was in a momentary panic a few weeks ago looking through a Buzzfeed gallery on rhubarb recipes, thinking that I had reached the end […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Peanut Butter & Jelly Crumb Morning Muffins

October 25, 2015 Baked Sunday Mornings
PB&J Muffins

I’m a little behind, as the Baked Sunday Morning crew made these muffins two weeks ago. Two things though: a) that was Thanksgiving up here in Canada and I was baked out b) there was no way I was tackling today’s recipe. Not that I have anything against Baked Alaska, it’s just a fairly long […]

Rhubarb Cream Cheese Hand Pies

Sometimes I have a moment when I see a new recipe and I’m like omgineedtomakethisrightaway and I can’t stop thinking about it. This becomes a problem when dealing with seasonal fruit, and rhubarb in particular, because if you don’t drop everything and make it right away, you’ll have to wait like a year for your […]

Rhubarb Mojitos

Rhubarb Mojito

So it’s August, and I’m still on rhubarb over here. I know that blueberries, cherries and peaches are waiting for me, so I’ve decided that this is the last week for rhubarb in my kitchen. I made some strawberry rhubarb jam yesterday, am working on a rhubarb recipe today that I’ve had bookmarked for THREE […]

Rhubarb Lemon Squares

When I was sick back in June and lying around on my couch drinking hot water with honey and lemon, I pretty much resigned myself to the fact that I was going to completely miss rhubarb season this year. I accepted the sad tragedy that it would be a rhubarb-less summer here on Planet Byn. […]
