Remember that luscious rhubarb berry jam I made last week?  Well, we’ve been enjoying the heck out of it here at Chez SGCC.  I’ve slathered it on homemade bread, spooned it into creamy yogurt and cooked it into a few tasty recipes.  I also baked some into these delectable Rhubarb Berry Crumb Bars, which have spoiled me forever.  From now until the end of time, every other crumb bar that I put past my lips will pale in comparison.  That’s how incredibly good these are.

I adapted the recipe for these bars from the one for Blueberry Almond Crumble Bars that I wrote about a few years ago.  The original recipe used whole berries.  I thought about doing the same with these, but I wanted to get that deeply concentrated fruity flavor that only comes with slow cooking the fruit down into a thick, jammy pool of goodness.  Besides, the whole point of me making the jam in the first place was to extend the life of that beautiful and rarely found rhubarb I managed to get hold of.  read more >>

Few things in life are certain.  We’re born.  We die.  And somewhere in between the two, we all get our hearts broken at least once.  There’s no escaping it.  It’s as inevitable as the rising and the setting of the sun.   This is the risk we take for that …
