The first time I had ever even heard of rhubarb was the first summer Paul and I had moved to Lancaster County. I grew up in the city and I guess rhubarb just isn't something you see in city supermarkets. We actually were really lucky growing up and we had a large back yard, side yard, and front yard. My parents grew quite a bit of vegetables most summers in the backyard - mostly tomatoes, cucumbers, and radishes. But never rhubarb! 

Seriously, the stuff is ALL OVER up here in Amish Country! Pretty much every roadside produce stand I stop at has bunches of rhubarb, very reasonably priced too, I might add. A sweet member of our church congregation gifted us a bunch from their garden so I thought it was about time that I cooked up something with it myself. Boy am I glad I took the plunge!

This simple, easy rhubarb cobbler is absolutely delicious. I will be honest, the finished product in the baking dish is not the prettiest dessert, but stir it up and serve it in bowls - one taste and no one will care! The sweet cake mix and jello mix paired with the tangy rhubarb make this dessert fantastic!
