Rhubarb Pecan Muffins
I usually make these for breakfast and as a coffee-time snack. I also like using my rhubarb for pies and sauces.
My husband and I—we have five children and eight grandchildren—are retired after 50 years of farming. We live simply, relying on our garden. I must be working...we're in our 70's
