  1. Funny story… I grew up eating strawberry-rhubarb pie, but my hubby Nate had NEVER tried it!!! In fact, he had never tried rhubarb! So I quickly introduced him to my mom’s amazing pie, and he fell in love with it instantly. Well, almost a week later, we were in the grocery store together. And Nate grabbed a rhubarb stalk and said, “Hmmm, so that tastes like strawberries?” And I started laughing and said, “NO, no it doesn’t.” And he said, “But why is it called strawberry-rhubarb pie then?” And I said, “BECAUSE it has strawberries AND rhubarb in it!” LOL! He seriously had thought that rhubarb tastes like strawberries! πŸ™‚ So this recipe totally made me think of that story, and apparently I felt the need to share. πŸ˜‰ I’ve honestly never had strawberry-rhubarb crisp before, and I can’t wait to try making this!!!

  2. Oh my gosh, this used to be a summer favorite when my family grew rhubarb! I have a bunch of frozen strawberries and was actually planning a crisp for later this week, but I might have to check out a farmer’s market or two first, just to see if I can pick up some rhubarb to go with!
