Have I mentioned before that I love Strawberry Rhubarb things? All things Strawberry Rhubarb are a favorite of mine. I remember a few years after Dave and I were married, we went to the coast around my birthday. Sweet man that he is, he asked what kind of cake I wanted. I surprised him by saying I'd really much rather have a Strawberry Rhubarb pie.
Lately, I've been experimenting with all thing rhubarb.... yummy! Last week's Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler was such a hit, I had to keep trying new recipes. This compote came out heavenly. It was sweet and tart at the same time and irresistible on vanilla ice cream.

Have you had your dose of Strawberry Rhubarb today?
