I no longer do the sugar dipping thing, but I absolutely love rhubarb recipes. I don’t grow any (not sure why not), but a few ladies from work brought me in some fresh rhubarb and I’m totally going on a rhubarb rampage over the next few days, so brace yourself. ┬áThe first recipe is for delicious rhubarb muffins….mmm good.
