Reviews for Rhubarb Mandarin Crisp
"Thank you so much! Looks delicious and I can't believe I have not seen this recipe sooner. Sounds good with rhubarb, mandarin and strawberries...possibly peaches later in the season. I'm jumping way ahead here. Still a chilly April for us. Please forgive me for rating before I try it..."
"I make this yummy dessert several times during rhubarb season. It's always a hit with the rhubarb crowd when I take it to a potluck. I usually double the amount of mandarin oranges. It's also delicious with strawberries or thinly sliced apples instead of the oranges."
