What do you get when you cross a weekend with a holiday?
A double shot (hold the foam) dose of FRIYAY!
Bring on the lobstah rolls, ice cream cones, and steamers, because it is oh-ficcially summer time in Maine!
...granted it will most likely be 50 degrees on Tuesday, but we don't need those vibe killers, cuz it's a three day weekend up in here!
Another sure sign of summer in my books is the next best combo since PB&J. Straw to the rhubarb.
Ever since my bakery job in high school, where I made it my personal vendetta to find the strawberry rhubarb square with the highest filling to crust ratio, I was hooked. It's sweet, it's tangy, and tastes like a bite of summer.
So I put together a list of awesome rhu-berry recipes to enjoy the bounty of the season right now...except I didn't include pie. Been there, ate that. It's time to explore 25 more wonders that this power couple is capable of.

Since no season is complete without it's own quick bread, strawberry rhubarb deserves it's spot this time of year. Healthy or not, this will knock your bread lovin' socks off.

Of course there had to be ice cream involved. And this one is even dairy-free!

What's your favorite way to eat strawberry rhubarb?
Which of these recipes would you try first?
Linz @ Itz Linz
YUM! perfect for summer and strawberries are my favorite fruit!
Jessica @ Nutritioulicious
OMG I'm salivating! These all look so good. Lucky for me I have 2 stalks of rhubarb in my fridge ready to be used this weekend! Thanks for including my mimosa!
rachel @ Athletic Avocado
love this roundup! Never knew strawberry rhubarb could be made so many different ways 🙂
Wow, this is an amazing round-up. Strawberry rhubarb is a really unique flavor, and I think my favorite way to have it is actually a crisp as opposed to a pie. A crisp is so much easier to make too. I wouldn't have thought of it in a popsicle, but that sounds really refreshing.
I am so team crisp over pie. Usually, I don't even eat the crust with pie! All about that filling. 🙂
Katie @ 24 Carrot Life
What an amazing roundup! Now to start cooking each and every one of these. And thanks for including my Chia Bars!
Thanks Katie! Can't wait to make another batch of those bars soon! 🙂
Liz @ The Clean Eating Couple
I've never cooked with rhubarb before - but I love it in pie! I'm going to have to be adventurous and go get some because these recipes look amazing!
Thanks Liz! I'd love to hear what you cook up with it!
Thank you for including my ice cream recipe. Glad we are not stuck with a pie only. Now if I could only come up with a savoury way to use rhubarb...
Ooh I like the way you think! I'm always thinking of ways to turn sweet into savory!
I LOVE that top photo that you took from Maine! Just beautiful! Thanks for including my jam recipe in this tasty roundup!
Thank YOU Lisa! That pic is one of my favs. 🙂
