It is strawberry season in Ontario now and there is nothing better than farm fresh strawberries…unless they come out of your own garden or backyard.
My pug treats my garden like her personal appetizer plate and eats all berries, stray branches and bunny poo if she can find it. She even ate all of our cherry tomatoes last year. We had to fence it off and still she managed to crawl under the chicken wire.
What? Not me! Look at this innocent face.
I picked up some wonderful Ontario strawberries last week from my local Farmer's market and combined them with some fresh rhubarb from my garden which Zoé hasn't figured out how to eat…yet.
I "mostly" followed this recipe. I added in some grated lemon peel and 1/4 cup of quinoa flakes to the crust to add in some protein.
Topped with some vanilla bean ice cream this is the perfect taste of summer sunshine.
I can't wait till I have some more rhubarb in the garden. Maybe I will bake my Sour Cream Rhubarb Muffins.
What is your favourite summer dessert?
