20 Farmers’ Market-Approved Rhubarb Recipes
You may have noticed a celery look-a-like popping up at your farmers’ market and grocery stores lately. But it happens to be more pink and tart than celery, and you’d probably rather have this in a dessert than a soup. What’s this mysterious fruit/vegetable, you ask? Rhubarb! Traditionally, rhubarb was mainly found in pies and other desserts, but now these pink and green stalks are showing up in breakfast meals, meat sauces, pasta dishes, you name it. We know you’ve looked at it, hesitated and didn’t buy it, but now is the time. We have 20 recipes just waiting for you to be brave and add rhubarb to your basket.
1. Rhubarb Macarons: Along with an excellent recipe for rhubarb macarons, you will get the ten commandments to not botch your next batch. These cookies are fickle, so we suggest reading all ten of them before starting in. (via Brave Tart)
3. Rhubarb Flan and Pistachio Crumble Tart: This tart is made with vanilla bean sugar dough, poached rhubarb, vanilla bean flan and pistachio crumble. A combination we wouldn’t have thought of, but we’re glad that someone did! (via Canelle et Vanille)
4. Rhubarb Ginger Scones: Rhubarb makes a great addition to your breakfast routine. A batch of these scones can be made in advance to allow for one more snooze-button sesh each weekday. (via Lynsey Loves Food)
8. Noodles With Kale and Spicy Rhubarb Sauce: If you’ve only had rhubarb covered in sugar, it’s time to expand your horizons. The tartness of rhubarb combined with a sweetness of honey and spice is worth a try. (via Naturally Ella)
9. Rhubarb Basil Cocktail: Make a rhubarb simple syrup that can be used in any cocktail this summer! Partnering it with basil, vodka and club soda might be the best way to drink it. (via Pixels + Crumbs)
10. Rhubarb Ice Cream With Pistachio Chunks: There is a solution for dairy-free ice cream lovers! And it comes in the form of rhubarb ice cream with a hint of coconut and non-processed sugar. (via What’s Cooking, Good Looking?)
14. Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream Sandwiches: Ice cream stuffed between two cookies is a winner in everyone’s book. Brown butter cookies with strawberry rhubarb ice cream filling is no different. (via Buttercream Blondie)
18. Rhubarb Greek Yogurt Popsicles: You’re going to need some popsicles soon (if not already) to cool you down from the summer heat. Might as well make ‘em healthy with some Greek yogurt and rhubarb. (via The View From Great Island)

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
