Peanut Butter Zucchini Cake

Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp

Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #blueberry #rhubarb #dessert #recipe

Rhubarb and blueberries are beautiful companions. I just discovered this. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it earlier. Last summer I went all crazy on everything strawberry rhubarb, but in all my years of cooking, I never thought to pair blueberries with rhubarb. Perhaps it’s because of the overabundance of strawberries I see in the […]

Cinnamon Cranberry Chai Zucchini Bread

Cinnamon Cranberry Chai Zucchini Bread ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #chai #zucchini #bread #recipe

Adapted from Simple Bites’ Best Zucchini Bread Ever When is the season where cinnamon and cranberries and hot chai intersect with zucchini?
