It’s not Thanksgiving, it’s Cinco de Mayo, but today I am thankful for a few things, and I thought you should know.   

I am thankful for my five year old boy, because only he can explain to me the significance of the pink ninja hostage situation happening atop this Jenga skyscraper.

I am thankful for oranges because they look pretty on trees, and they are a key ingredient in one of my favorite cakes. You can find my recipe for orange cake in The Lettered Cottage E-zine, including the easy trick for making those fancy shmancy curls with orange peels.

Raspberry Rhubarb Crumble

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

I like to make a lot of stuff, it’s in my DNA.  I dabble in home décor, interior design, power tools, poignant deep thoughts, and every now and then, a great recipe.  This is my latest homemade concoction and I’m telling you, this one’s a goodie.  

I whipped up this delicious treat the other day, and my hub called it his favorite ‘dessert’ to date.  I hesitate to really call it a dessert.  I like to label it something more nutrition friendly.  Five servings of fruit per day are recommended doncha know, so let’s pretend this recipe is meant to keep you at your healthiest.
