I am excited to be celebrating Stephanie from Girl Versus Dough and her beautiful baby girl that will be arriving soon! It is such an exciting time to be expecting your first baby…so life changing!

In honor of Stephanie I am sharing a Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. I am a huge fan of all things “crisp.” Apple crisp, peach name it!

When I was a child growing up in Michigan I remember my mom grew rhubarb in our backyard.  She would make the most delicious strawberry rhubarb pies in the summer.  The flavors mixed so perfectly together and the pie was always gone in less than a day.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

This Strawberry Rhubarb crisp mixes fresh strawberries, rhubarb and cinnamon topped with a crispy oat topping.  Serve this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or greek yogurt and you have a meal! Right?? ;)

As we enter the warmer months of the year I am so excited to start cooking, baking and adding strawberries and rhubarb to everything!

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Congrats and best of luck Stephanie as you enter this next chapter in your life.  Being a Mom is the best, most rewarding job in the world and I know you will love every second. We can’t wait to hear of the arrival of your little bundle of joy!

  12. Strawberry Rhubarb is my favorite flavor combo ever and this looks oh so good!

  13. This virtual baby shower is so beautiful. I seriously do think that food bloggers are some of the nicest, most generous and warm people around! Very glad that I got to discover you through this link-up Julia! Your blog is lovely. Loving the idea of this fruity crisp… I am obsessed with anything with fruit and oats in it so I know I’m going to bake this up very soon! Thanks for the recipe and I wish Steph all of the best over the next few weeks! xx

    • Thanks so much Laura! I am heading over to visit your beautiful blog. I agree–food bloggers really are some of the nicest people!

  14. I think a fruit crisp is my all-time favorite dessert (with ice cream) after pie. Pie always comes first but next is a fruit crisp and one that looks as good as yours is definitely a winner.

    Congratulations to Stephanie and the new baby!

  15. That strawberry rhubarb crisp looks absolutely fantastic! I think I am in love!

  16. I love rhubarb! Very cool that your mom used to grow it. I live in Michigan, so I should grow some rhubarb! This is perfect for this time of year.
