Baked Rhubarb with Blackberries

Today’s post is dedicated to my lovely and fabulous mother, Joann…she loves her rhubarb pies and I thought of her last week when I purchased a beautiful bunch of rhubarb and fresh blackberries at the market.  My mother is incredible…not only is she my best friend, but she is incredibly talented both in the kitchen (I learned everything from her) and in her full time job as a teacher…so, I’d like to congratulate my mother on Teacher of The Year! Congrats Mom; you deserve this more than anyone and I am so proud of you.  I love you so much and can’t wait to spend this weekend at the beach with you.  Here is a photograph of my mother and I from last month.

How adorable is she? Hehehe…

    What a happy post. That looks like such a good recipe. I haven’t tried stevia. How is it compared to other sweeteners? I tend to use honey or organic and raw sugar in most recipes.

      Thanks Lisa; hope you’re having a great weekend…I love using agave nectar and honey in my recipes, however, for this particular rhubarb treat I decided to use my stevia for baking…I’ve found that every stevia brand tastes incredibly different and it’s all trial and error to find the brand/taste that suites your taste buds…I like NuNaturals Stevia…it’s one of my favorite brands…Enjoy your weekend!
