Rhubarb Crumble Muffins

Yesterday I picked all of the remaining rhubarb in my garden. There was a huge amount, as anyone who has every grown rhubarb (at least in Alaska) knows you will end up with. I looked through recipes and decided...

PAIN D'EPICE (HONEY SPICE LOAF)

I've read on both David Lebovitz's blog and in Clotilde Dusoulier's book "Chocolate & Zucchini" about a French cake called "Pain D'Epice. I guess this is a very traditional cake that is flavored with honey and spices. It's usually...
