Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp


I love the ease of crisps.  "Easy as pie" should be replaced with "Easy as crisp." 



Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp 

Preheat oven to 375°.  Combine: 4-5 cups sliced strawberries, 4-5 cups diced rhubarb, 3/4 cup sugar, 5 tablespoons flour, and 1 teaspoon lemon zest.  Place in a 9 x 13 pan.  

Mix together:  3/4 cup flour, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup oats, and 1 tablespoon cinnamon.  Cut in 3/4 cup butter.  Place mixture over fruit, the top with 3/4 cup chopped walnuts. Bake for 45 minutes.  Serve warm.

  1. I just had a delicious peach/plum crisp last night made by my 12 y.o. cousin. And while I've never made one myself, I've lightly supervised my kids making one...yes easy as crisp indeed!

  5. Oh, goodness, that looks so delicious, Kristi! One of these days I'll be able to have some carbs in my life again, just not too many! I'll be pinning this for future reference.

  6. I never think to add rhubarb to my strawberry crisp or to anything I make! It does look yummy but try as he may have my Dad could never get me to like rhubarb and I still don't.

  7. Yum, yum, yum. I've never had rhubarb before, but I may have to try it. I've noticed them selling it at the grocery store lately.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
