My kitchen smelled divine when I baked kleicha: the irresistible, faint scent of the proofing pastry exploded in the oven and filled the house with the velvety, comforting smell of spices.

It's rhubarb season, everyone! The time for fruit tarts, crumbles, cobblers and fruit compotes has officially started. Never thought of adding rhubarb to cookies before, but I'm glad I did. They're awesome!
