"OMG Lady, I Just made this and it is one of the best apple breads I have made to date! :) the addition of Rhubarb is nothing short of genius - if you dont mind, I would like to post this on my website - I will credit it back to you, although it may be a while before I add it as I am in the middle of revamping the existing website!"
