Grandma's Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a recipe I adapted from a recipe booklet my grandma had. Recently I found out that my grandma really doesn't like to bake, it was my grandpa that was more of the baker. I've kept the title the same though and I continue to enjoy looking through and trying all the recipes in my grandparents clippings, magazines, and vintage books.
This recipe won a contest at iVillage.com many years ago and my prize was a Barefoot Contessa Entertaining cookbook.
