As this is Mother’s Day weekend, I wanted to post a recipe that always makes me think of my mom. My mom absolutely loves anything with strawberries and rhubarb, and this recipe comes at the perfect time because we are right in the middle of strawberry and rhubarb season!When I was growing up, my family had a garden and in that garden was one rhubarb plant. Rhubarb plants come back on their own every year, so even after we stopped growing our garden many years later, the rhubarb plant would never leave! I’ve always thought it is so funny that we now have a stray rhubarb growing in the middle of the lawn.

Enjoy this delicious recipe and I hope you get a chance to bake something special for your mom this Mother’s Day as well!
