Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I'm the baker of the family and generally like to try new/different things for holidays so when I saw this recipe I grabbed it right away and decided this would be one of the new desserts this year. I mentioned it to my family members before making and and the consensus response was 'ugh don't make rhubarb pie, we HATE rhubarb!' But, it was in my head and wanted to make it anyway. Well, let's just say this pie was the biggest hit at the dessert table (even after competing against some long time favorites). I will be making this a regular Easter recipe. I followed the recipe exactly - no changes. The only thing I would do next time is go for a little more than 4 cups of rhubarb. It really shrinks down when it cooks and I wasn't left with as thick of a pie as is pictured - mine was a bit thinner. All in all - this recipe has changed Easter dessert at my house!

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I make Quinoa on a regular basis but some of my dishes are quite cumbersome and time consuming, so as an Easter side dish where I needed a large portion I though this recipe would fit the bill Conceptually, it's great. Veges, Quinoa, seasoning. But there's just something about the combination that doesn't work. I followed the recipe to a T, only adding some finely chopped red bell pepper for color, but it was a flop. The bites tasted good but there was an after taste that was terrible. I think it was the thyme, though it's odd because I generally like time. Can't pinpoint it but put it this way, no one could get enough of my other dishes and this one was left with barely a dent taken out (by regular quinoa eaters)
