“I’ve got some spring rhubarb in the garden if you want to make something,” said a neighbor a couple days ago. It just so happened that I’d told Stanley yesterday that I would bake him something when he’s working here today on the rig. I asked what he liked, what he didn’t like and then … More Oma’s Rhubarb Cake with Cinnamon Crumble
