Rhubarb Raspberry Crisp
Every time I've entered our Boone County Bake-Off, I've won a blue ribbon. Last summer, when the category was rhubarb, this recipe was the grand champion! See if your family thinks it's a winner, too. The orange juice and peel give it real zest. Along with cooking and sharing recipes with my two daughters and friends, I love gardening and bird-watching.
