Talk about blog envy: Helene Dujardin's fetching photography and knack for creating delicate sweet treats, showcased on Tartelette, is enough to make you swoon. This lovely panna cotta takes advantage of deliciously tart in-season rhubarb.
"Panna cotta is perfect because it needs to be made the day before, which leaves plenty of time for Mom the day of if she is the one in the kitchen. If Dad and the kids tackle the dessert, panna cotta requires very few ingredients, minimum skill and very little prep time. The soothing and relaxing lavender flavor is perfect for saying, 'Mom, this is your day to be pampered.' Rhubarb for many of us is reminiscent of comfort, Grandma, Mom and pie. It is perfectly in season to grace this creamy panna cotta, ending the meal on a light and delicious note."
