Rhubarb Crumble Muffins

I am always happy to see rhubarbs start popping up in local markets. Rhubarb was always the first fruit (actually a vegetable) in our garden which we could harvest in spring. I am going to Germany in a few weeks and hope there will still be plenty, as I have seen so many good recipes lately.

These rhubarb-streusel-muffins are inspired by a recipe of one of my favorite German star chefs Johann Lafer, very easy and quick to make and a good mix of tartness from the rhubarb and the sweet crumb topping.

Chocolate-Nut Brownies

It is always good to have a great brownies recipe. Everybody likes them. Brownies are fast and easy, which makes them a great dessert to bring to a party. These ones have different nuts added and are really nice and chewy on the inside. 

A common mistake when making brownies is overbaking. Don't be tempted to leave them in the oven too long. They will firm up after cooling. Use a good chocolate, you also enjoy eating. Your brownies will taste so much better with good quality chocolate.
