Growing up my mother cooked homegrown rhubarb in her little iron pot, often with slices of apple, but sometimes by itself. I didn't like the stuff, at all. To me it was just all string and mush. As I've gotten older my tastes changed and while I do actually like stewed rhubarb nowadays, other cooking methods such as roasting have become my go-to to avoid those lovely stringy bits that I struggled with as a kid. Flicking through my friend Kimberley's stunning cookbook Vibrant Food, it was her recipe for Rhubarb Ginger Fizz that instantly called out to me. The essence of rhubarb is there, along with a good kick of ginger... but the stringy bits are not! My inner child cheered.

I'm here today to make all of you Mums and Dads feel good about yourselves, even if you too have forgotten to put the little coin from the Tooth Fairy in your kids room before going to bed. I've been that parent, long ago. Thankfully my kids are okay with me telling them fibs about how sometimes she's just too busy to pick up all the teeth in one night and that I'm sure she'll stop by the following night (mentally taking note to remember as I do!). I'm here to reassure you all that no one can do any worse than I. See, this past weekend I gain the official title of worlds worst mum (a little bit of an overkill I know, but in the eyes on a 6 year old I'm sure it momentarily felt this way).

I don't know about you guys, but this week has been one of those weeks where I've felt busy beyond believe, but don't really have anything to show for it. End of year busyness I tell ya, too much to cram into the final weeks of the school year and not enough time. No recipe this week sorry folks, but I'll be back next week with a lovely little treat for ya. xx
