Recipe Round-Up: Rhubarb Romance


Rhubarb is a polarizing ingredient, I've found. You either despise it or - like me - it's an annual obsession.

I wait, impatiently, for it to appear in markets and then I buy it up by the armful because I know that it'll be gone in the blink of an eye. Even my boys get excited when they see those ruby stalks. See! We clearly love our rhubarb.

I enjoyed this piece about rhubarb on NPR's The Kitchen Window.

And, because I wanted to try some new recipes, featuring this beloved stalk, I put out a call for recipes to the foodies in the blogosphere. They answered with some amazing looking creations that made me want to stick a fork in my monitor. Delish.

Enjoy...
