Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

I have been on a bit of a strawberry rhubarb baking kick these past couple of weeks. But, in my defense, how could I not be? It seems that everywhere I go these early summer fruits are looking at me, begging to be transformed into a delicious dessert, like Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp and so many others. I recently made a Strawberry Shortcake Shortcut which is a quick, delicious and easy take on the original and an amazing Strawberry Rhubarb Galette. (Which I may have had more than two pieces … [Read more...]

Strawberry Rhubarb Galette

In my neck of the woods, strawberry season is now in full swing! Add to that, the fact that rhubarb is still going strong too and the dessert ideas are endless. I have been baking up a storm these days and recently posted my recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Shortcut. Music Man, who isn't usually a dessert guy had this about three times in the past week...and he assembled it himself!  Not that he doesn't make meals, because he does.  It's just unusual for him to tackle a dessert, but this … [Read more...]

No Churn Rhubarb Ice-Cream

No Churn Rhubarb Ice-Cream ~ You may have noticed that many of my recent recipes have had a bit of a recurring theme. The theme? Rhubarb! As I mentioned in an earlier post, my sister lives in the country and has a big rhubarb patch on her property. She made the mistake of telling me to help myself…so, these days, I have raided her rhubarb patch on a fairly regular basis! In the past couple of weeks, I have made Rhubarb Sour Cream Muffins, Stewed Rhubarb (delicious over ice cream or spooned … [Read more...]

Easy to Make Rhubarb Squares

Lately, you may have noticed I have been on a bit of a rhubarb kick! My sister lives in the country and has a big rhubarb patch on her property. She is very generous with her rhubarb and made the mistake of telling me to help myself...so, I have decimated the patch on a regular basis and have been cooking up a storm! I'm kidding...I haven't really decimated the rhubarb patch, I left her a few stocks here and there...lol! Plus, (this is how I justify it!) it's actually good for the plant to … [Read more...]

How to Make Stewed Rhubarb

A few days ago, I posted a recipe for Rhubarb Sour Cream Muffins and talked a little bit about rhubarb. Rhubarb is probably the one advantage to living in a northern climate! If you are not familiar with rhubarb, it’s a cool season perennial vegetable, that’s right…it’s a vegetable! Even though we most often treat it as a fruit in such confections as pies, crisps, squares, ice-cream, compotes and jams, crumbles, coffee cakes, sweet breads and muffins, rhubarb is actually a … [Read more...]

A little taste of Spring ~ Rhubarb Muffins ~ {Recipe}

My sister recently brought me some rhubarb freshly picked from her garden.  It looked and smelled so much like spring!  I cut off the leaves, washed it, wrapped it in some damp paper towel and put it in the fridge. As many of you know by now I LOVE making muffins! Yesterday, I decided to make some muffins with the rhubarb...I adapted a blueberry muffin recipe I had and they turned out really well.  Light and sweet with just a little tang from the rhubarb. Do you love muffins?  What are … [Read more...]
