Blooms and SpoonsWe’re in that blustery part of spring here in Calgary — in the span of ten minutes, we can have rain, snow, hail, and brilliant sunshine. The jackrabbits are still caught between their winter white and warm-weather brown, and the early spring bulbs are just poking up out of the soil and readying themselves for their short, beautiful show. It’s a crazy, changeable time, but I always look forward to it. 

One of the very best parts of spring is when the rhubarb is ready for harvest, but I still have to be patient a little while longer and simply dream ... These Rhubarb Coconut Muffins are a great way to enjoy those tangy-tart stalks once they’re finally ready.
