    Blogger of the Day: Deanna at The Mommy Bowl

    Robins and rhubarb are classic signs of spring and I’m so happy both are finally here! I remember as a kid our neighbor had a big rhubarb patch and every spring she’d bring us a big box of rhubarb which my mom would always whip into strawberry rhubarb pies. Mom also taught us that you can only eat the stalks…the leaves are toxic. She’d cut up a few raw stalks and we’d pile on a boatload of sugar for a sweettart kind of treat…so yumfully good! :)

    Deanna’s Rhubarb Butter Bars are another delish dessert, especially with vegan vanilla ice cream! All of Deanna’s recipes are gluten-free, most are vegan (or quickly veganizable), many are raw and all are ABCeasy! Start with the bars to celebrate a sunny spring! :)

    Many of the local people with allotments grow rhubarb, and often in abundance!

    I prefer my rhubarb in a pie, with vegan custard!

    I was raised eating meat, but I always had a love for animals. I had farm animals that my family and I would help take care of. At age 12 I went vegan because I knew that cows, pigs, and any other animals only want love and compassion.
