HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY-RHUBARB PIE: Dixie's Kitchen features a superb-looking recipe for Amish strawberry rhubarb pie. To me, nothing says summer in Amish country more than strawberry-rhubarb pie...the flavors meld in this amazing blend of sweet and tart and,yeah, nothing better than this pie. And, as Dixie, says topped with a scoop of vanilla, it is pure amazing. Click here for this superb recipe.

Her husband Ed passed away over a year ago and it is nice to see her living so fully, but still hard to believe Ed is gone.
