What I Baked This Week: Rhubarb Cookies

It’s rhubarb season here and my plants are growing like crazy. Last week I posted a recipe for Rhubarb Custard Bars. This morning, I made Rhubarb Cookies. The recipe originally came from The Farmer’s Amanac, but it is no longer on their site. Fortunately, I had tweaked the recipe a bit and saved it. If you have rhubarb, give this a try.

New to Me Authors: April & May 2022

At the end of each year, I try to put together a list of “New to Me Authors” I read during the year. It takes forever, so I decided to borrow an idea and a graphic from Lucy at Bookworm Blogger. At the end of each month I will post all the new to me authors from that month. It is now the end of May and I am posting for April & May, so let’s see what new authors I read. I will say, many of these new to me authors were wonderful and some have huge backlists, so my TBR is definitely growing.

May 5th is Cinco de Mayo. It commemoratesΒ the Battle of Puebla in 1862. I didn’t really know a lot about how this celebration came to be, just that we ate Mexican food.

Happy Easter! ✝🐰

As a Christian, Easter is the most important Holy Day to me. I will be heading off to church, listening to music, reading and sharing my Hallelujahs throughout the day. To those of you who celebrate this meaning of Easter, I wish you a wonderful Easter. He is Risen, Hallelujah!

Easter also signifies new beginnings and the coming of spring. Easter bunnies, eggs, chocolate etc. So to those of you who celebrate this way, Happy Easter to you as well!

However you celebrate today, I wish you a Happy Easter, wonderful time with family, chocolate with no calories and a wonderful dinner. Enjoy today and the rest of the week.
