MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 21, 2013

"Was not sure how a recipe with just rhubarb (not a strawberry combo) would go over, or how a microwave recipe would turn out. Tried this just to find out. Cannot believe how much we LOVED it! It is so yummy (especially with just a little bit of vanilla ice cream melted over the top)! We will be making this again every year with rhubarb from Grandma, as well as sharing this recipe with everyone! The best part is that it comes together so easily and is READY in 10- 15 minutes, if the rhubarb is already chopped. No oven heating up the house on a hot day!"
