Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler

"This is a favorite of our family and the kids don't do many desserts!!! (I am considering having DNA run on them to make sure they are "my" children!!!) My mother-in-law shared this with me last year. We grow our own rhubarb and this is the only way I can get anyone else to eat someone with me. I will cut and freeze the rhubarb to have fresh on hand when the cherries come on. Then, I will pit and freeze cherries to use later after the season is over."

  1. darlene used cherry pie filling also
  2. I'm not a big fan of rhubarb but the addition of the cherries made a believer out of me and now I can say I like rhubarb. :) I used cherry pie filling as I didn't have fresh on hand. The next time (and there will be a next time), I will use fresh cherries. Thanks Paddles, for showing me the light.


I have the prelivige of living in the Wonderful Willamette Valley in Oregon. This gives our family the opportunity to pick/harvest and eat some of the tasty fruit and vetagetables around. I am the proud mother of two wonderful children;10 and 6. I enjoying the aspect of my job as a teacher when working with students but really dislike the paperwork that goes along with special education. I love the idea of just closing the door and not having to deal with adults. Just hang out with kids and learn as well as teach them the magic of learning. My own two are forever reminding me of it. I grew up never really knowing what bad cooking was as my mother is the best cook around. She grew up outside of New Orleans but her married life has been spent out west so our tastes are varied. I grew up and have raised our children on coffee milk at age 2, grits and lots of See's chocolate. :)
