Love, love, love this recipe for rhubarb cakehttp://allrecipes.com/Recipe/rhubarb-cake-i/detail.aspx

I only used 1C of sugar...and substituted Stoneyfield Vanilla yogurt for the buttermilk. You could also use sour cream! So yummy! You can eat it for breakfast, like a coffee cake...or any time of day!

Your rhubarb looked wonderful!

My newest favorite way to use rhubarb: make syrup for pancake night! Chop 1 cup fruit, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/3 cup water...boil down to desired consistency. (I usually serve immediately...will thicken after it is refrigerated~ then I use as jam!) If I have them, I like to throw in a few raspberries for a beautiful color.

I love making rhubarb crisp with either berries or apples. This is a favorite in our house: http://choicesustenance.blogspot.com/2011/05/blue-barb-crisp.html

We also made rhubarb margaritas this year, and they were delicious!

My husband LOVES rhubarb pie and I usually make him one for his birthday. Here's the recipe I use: http://kickinkitch.blogspot.com/2009/07/fresh-rhubarb-pie.html The crust is super flaky and the rhubarb is perfectly sweetened.

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
