Things I’m loving right now…Monday edition

crabapple blossom

I love spring, I love tree blossoms, I love wine, I love colourful fruits and veggies (more so now that I’m a vegetarian once again), I love learning tricks that make life easier, and I love recipes that are super easy and also super good.

So in keeping with the above, here are some tips, tricks and recipes that you might love too, along with a fresh image courtesy of a nearby crabapple tree in glorious bloom.

Rainbow sangria — the most beautiful (and healthiest) sangria you will ever set eyes on.

THE best and fastest way to separate eggs — you have to see this to believe it (thanks sis!)

Strawberry rhubarb crisp bars — I made these last weekend with rhubarb from my garden and they are too fast and too good not to try.

Goat cheese and avocado toast — yum!

And just because life is so short and we’re all getting older by the day…40 Regrets You Don’t Want to Have in 40 Years (well, maybe not even 40 — it was written for a younger audience!)

Have a scrumptious week, everybody!

  1. Your gorgeous crabapple blossoms have me missing my tree that was destroyed in a storm 3 years ago. So stunning against that blue sky! And thanks for sharing here…I can’t wait to make those fruit squares while sipping that colorful sangria!

  2. Love the image. So soothing to the eye and mind. Love all that you shared today. The toast, avocado and goat cheese sounds wonderful. I’ll be making the fruit squares also (gluten free) for my son..and a few for myself. Such a wonderful post.

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my Be Still post. You and I are of a like mind knowing it’s really the simple things that natter most…well that and a good glass of wine. I don’t write much about my son. He’s more private than mope and my daughter but I’m thinking he deserves more space.

    Now on to catch up with your other posts. Can’t wait to read about book making.

  3. The crabapple tree is so special, I remember this from my childhood. It was such a huge tree in my parents yard and such awesome blooms every spring. Funny how things like that still stick in a person’s memory. Love how the clouds are in your image with the white on the left and the blue sky on the right so beautiful.
