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!

  2. I never think to add strawberries to the rhubarb crisps I make.

  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: Dad's Influence Edition

Infant-me, sitting on the wood floor, looks up at my dad, who is sitting on a brown sofa and smiling down to me Here in the United States, it is Father's Day weekend. I did not realize until recently that Father's Day was not officially made a holiday until 1972. 1972! Now, while I realize that many people consider 1972 eons ago, I do not. I'm glad that fathers have a day of recognition now, because they surely deserve acknowledgement.  I thought for this week's Ten Things of Thankful post, I would list ten lessons I'm thankful my dad taught me. My dad is a teacher. Not only did he impart his knowledge to countless junior high aged kids throughout his career, he taught--and still teaches--my siblings and me. He is not a preachy teacher; he's a humble man whose lessons I feel like I learned through osmosis. When he would get home from work, we'd all sit down as a family for supper. Often, our phone would ring, and on the other end of the line would be a paren

Ten Things of Thankful: Summer Strawberries and Procrastinated Projects

A brilliantly-colored dark pink and purple fuchsia blossom You would think that by the time a person reaches my age, she would not be surprised by the passing of time, yet I find myself nearly constantly amazed that a certain amount of time has passed--whether that be a week, month, year, or couple of decades. Earlier this year, I planted a garden. Yesterday I harvested my first strawberry. Earlier this year, I also planted fuchsia starts, and now the flowers are blooming. How is that possible? (And why am I surprised?) Sometime around the turn of the century (and it still seems strange to use that phrase about the year 2000), we bought a circa 1935 dresser. It needed some TLC, but had a cool curvy front. This past week, I finally got around to applying some Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax, and now the dresser still looks old, but not dilapidated. I still need to apply some hide glue to some loose pieces, but I'm counting progress as a win. For as long as I can remember, I've be

Ten Things of Thankful: From Sunrise to Moonset

Cars and trucks on a highway travel toward the rising sun                                    John and I made a quick, task-oriented trip to California last week. We wore our masks and stayed at an acceptable social distance from others (which is hard for grandchildren to understand, but we mostly succeeded.) We're now home, and at the "I need a vacation to recover from my 'vacation' " stage, which makes sitting down to compose a TToT post a bit of a challenge. However, I know that I will feel better by the end of this post, so bear with me if you will.  1. I'm thankful that we had no problems with traffic going there or coming home. We left our hotel at about quarter to four on Friday morning. The early start, fewer families traveling this year, or, most likely, a combination of the two, made for an easy drive.  2. I'm thankful for books to help pass the time. We haven't actually finished yet (as I was reading aloud, and my voice can only last for so l
