rhubarb simple syrup

rhubarbsyrup-1With rhubarb season coming to an end next month, now is the perfect time to whip up a batch of simple syrup to celebrate the last few weeks of summer (sorry, but you all know it’s quickly approaching!). Simple syrups can be added to alcohol such as rum for rhubarb mojitos or sparkling water for a non-alcoholic version and left over cooked rhubarb can be used in yogurt or as a topping on your favorite desserts!

rhubarbsyrup-2rhubarb3Chop up 3-5 stalks into small pieces.

rhubarb4rhubarb5Add rhubarb to the following in a large pot – 1 cup sugar // 2 cups water // optional: pinch of nutmeg, cinnamon or a dash of vanilla. Simmer for approx. 5 minutes and let cool. This recipe may be easily doubled or tripled if you plan to host a party. Store in a mason jar or pitcher in the refridgerator for up to one week. Happy weekend!

summer love

The-Everyday-1After spending the past two years on and off in the UK, this was the first time since 2010 that we spent summer in Vancouver (BC) and what a beauty it was! We also decided to only accept referals for weddings this summer, which meant that our weekends were free for Farmers Markets, estate sales, and spending quality time with family and friends. (pictured above clockwise – planning session, heirloom tomatoes, iced americano from Matchstick Coffee, and A’hoy goods in Deep Cove)

The-Everyday-2I had planned to start a series over here called ‘5 a day’ where I would post 5 images taken from the past week in one day. Most of the images would be from my phone though, as this is what I normally have handy. Thoughts? It would be similar to my ‘in the city‘ series from 2012 when we were living overseas and it would encourage me to get out and capture more snippets of the everyday.

Anyhow. Enough gabbing. Applications to the Got Craft? holiday show closed last Monday, so there has been a flurry of emails, worksheets, and gathering images for the upcoming look book and website update. It’s hard to believe it is already September, but I’m so excited for the Fall. It is my absolute favourite season! (pictured above – Monsieur Felix, one of the neighbourhood cats)
