Rhubarb, oh what to do!? I have been expirementing with rhubarb and came up with these crowd pleasers. I'm a big proponent of use what's in your backyard to bake/cook, yet I've never baked with rhubarb.  Some people think that's absurd, like my Mom.  We always had rhubarb around when I was a kid and yes the classic dip the rhubarb in sugar feast, but I've never really liked it.  I'm kind of a chocolate girl. So, I went on a quest and came up with these yummy Rhubarb Strawberry Squares and my girls think they are awesome.
