I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I kind of have a thing for Martha Stewart’s craft/cooking/gardening empire. Perhaps it’s because I know she loves cats (that always helps win my affection), but mainly I think I just like her attitude that first and foremost, she’s a teacher…with like a million bajillion dollars and many minions who probably jump ten feet anytime she’s nearby, but there you go.
Anyway, while drooling over the lovely pictures of plants and container gardens and landscaping tips in the March 2011 issue, never mind that my only gardening success ever was sprouting grapefruit trees from seeds (they’re still alive, yay! and we won’t talk about how many herb plants I’ve killed…), a recipe for Swiss chard, sausage, and lemon lasagna caught my eye.

I know, I know. Another rhubarb recipe? But I just love the stuff so much. I dream about growing my own rhubarb to have it come back every spring. I think about recipes and how to adapt them to add rhubarb. I dread the end of rhubarb season. And so far, rhubarb has proven itself worthy of my adoration, since everything I’ve experimented so far has turned out great.

So this is actually the second experiment using rhubarb compote. In typical style, I will show the first experiment in the next post. But first, I am thrilled to be posting again, if only because all last week I wasn’t feeling up to cooking, but at least got a lot of cookbook reading done! Yesterday, though, I decided it was time to start baking again, and muffins seemed like an easy way to get my oven mitts back on.
