Kitchen Parade Extra: Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Recipe

A simple dessert that sings of spring, at, click for the recipe!
Today's recipe at My recipe for strawberry rhubarb cobbler, one of spring's classic dessert recipes, topped with a buttery cornmeal crumb.

Thank goodness for rhubarb recipes. Otherwise A Veggie Venture might become altogether too healthful, bereft of sweets and desserts. Once the rhubarb is ready for harvesting and starts to show up in the grocery stores, who can resist a thick slice of rhubarb pie, the perfect balance of rhubarb-sour and sugar-sweet? But for simplicity, an easy cobbler recipe is the ticket, whether a 'plain' rhubarb cobbler or today's recipe, rhubarb and strawberry cobbler.

Aerogardens are especially good for herb lovers who make their homes in apartmentsBUSTED Many thanks to Maggie, a reader who makes her home in New York City on the top floor apartment of a building originally constructed in 1839 as a one-family house. Maggie's apartment runs due north to due south so the northern windows get no direct sun and southern windows and skylights get so much sun that anything short of a cactus would be fried. After reading Tuesday's post about how to grow fresh herbs in pots, Maggie wrote -- ever so poignantly -- to remind me that not all homes have the space, light and open air to grow fresh herbs, even ones with wonderful front stoops perfect for watching the world pass by. She's thinking about investing in an aerogarden, something I wrote about on BlogHer and has the added benefit of year-round fresh herbs.

Maggie, thank you for your letter and the Aerogarden suggestion. Readers, keep those cards and letters and comments coming!
