Poached Rhubarb and Rhubarb Caramel

It’s finally rhubarb season here in France and we love it! More than being an incredibly tasty fruit, it also suggests that spring has officially arrived and, obviously, summer is next 🙂 The rhubarb is very acidic, main reason why people tend not to consume it.

Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is usually baked around easter time but I suggest you have it much more often than that! First because it’s a classic and second because honestly, everyone loves it! It’s definitely one of my favorite cakes, light and delicious. I love making veggies desserts, they are such a great option whenever we are in between two seasons and fruits aren’t so good (e.g. beginning of spring).
