Rhubarb Crisp

Remember the rhubarb that was popping up not that long ago??? Well, it has grown ever so quickly and we were able to eat some of it today!!I'll share the recipe with you. It was delicious!!!
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 c. flour
3/4 c. quick cooking rolled oats
1/2/ c. melted butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
Combine the above and mix together until crumbly.
Press half of the mixture into a buttered 8-inch square baking dish.
Top with 4 c. sliced rhubarb.
In a saucepan combine:
1 c. granulated sugar
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 c. water
1 tsp. vanilla
Cook until clear, then pour over rhubarb.
Top rhubarb with remaining crumb mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes.

Enjoy!!! :)

A New Look

Every time that I think that I have come up with the label choice to end all label choices,
I have another idea!!

This is what my soaps will look like this season. I like the small splash of extra color. Starting in June I have a craft show planned nearly every weekend throughout the summer.

I have several bins of soaps to wrap...I'd better get at it.

Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway - HERE. I now have a large, new list of blogs to discover!!! Thanks to all of you for stopping by!!
