Rhubarb Pie

I hate to admit it but this weekend was the first time I went to the farmers market.  There was a lot of the usual but I picked up rhubarb this time.  I had it as a child but didn't think it was anything special.  Now most of the deserts I make are pretty decadent, heavy cream, lots of sugar, etc........ 

So I made a rhubarb and strawberry pie.  As I was eating I actually said to myself, 'I am content to die' it was so amazing.  I immediately took a piece to my neighbor and then I sat there for an hour with them drinking two buck chuck from trader joe's.

The balance between sweet and sour is amazing.  I followed the recipe (in my recipe box) but I brought the white sugar down to 3/4 cup like one of the reviews indicates to do.  I also sprinkled extra brown sugar on top of the crumble.  I baked it for about 40 minutes.  I hate when the edges of my piecrust get overdone.  

I have heard that it doesn't last long like some other pies.  It won't last long at my house either, with as much as we've eaten and given away.

Wrap your pie crust edges with narrow folded pieces of tinfoil and remove them halfway through baking. That solves that problem. Strawberry Rhubarb is my fave pie on earth, you've discovered heaven.

You have to make it again. I was surprised that it made it to my new top ten. it's in my recipe box under deserts, Rhubarb / strawberry crumb pie. I did reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup. It brings out the tart and sweet beautifully.

About Me
I am 37 years old and I live in Grand Rapids, MI. I just bought a new house with my husband. We have an 11 year old daughter and we have a pit bull named Zara. Until three years ago I was "career woman hear me roar". Getting more in touch with my domestic side brought me to the kitchen, and I'm loving it.
My favorite things to cook
EVERYTHING and ANYTHING. I got my feet wet with desert but I will cook anything. I love pushing the envelop with exotic ingredients and sharing recipes with my sister Julie who lives in New Jersey. I go in spurts with what I cook. I will cook one thing and then I will spin it 10 different ways over two months.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am making my own cooking traditions. The first deserts I made for my husband when we were dating were cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake. A couple of thanksgivings ago my mother made a "house to dress a turkey" video. It ruled!
My cooking triumphs
Besides the cheesecake and flourless chocolate I would have to say my biggest triumph has been an apple pie I made for my father. It knocked my mother's recipe out of the water and now she uses my recipe (sorry mom).
My cooking tragedies
The first couple of quiche I made were disgusting. I tend not to follow recipes unless it's desert. I have learned to find a good base recipe and build from there.
