This cake recipe came from the Alberta Agriculture District Office in Vegreville. It was gifted to me by an old German grandma. The Rhubarb recipe came from the need to deal with the prehistoric rhubarb plant in my garden.

Blueberry Pie is Matt's favorite pie but in Alberta Saskatoons are the local berry. They're very similar to a blueberry so you can substitute these berries in everything. Matt also enjoys rhubarb and it grows well in Alberta. My rhubarb plant is out of control and prehistoric looking.
Normally I find berry pies too be extremely liquidy. This wasn't a problem due to the rhubarb's natural thickening properties. The flavours blended well and the bite was smooth. In my opinion putting Saskatoons and rhubarb together in a pie was a show stopper.

I had these granola bars from a hiking partner named Ruth. They are a great hiking treat packed with nutty protein and that hit of sugar you (I) sometimes crave on a hike and easy to make.
Yield: 12-14 bars

This is a great brunch idea or easy pack-able lunch. I always make more than we need so we can freeze them for a quick snack when needed. If you want to make them in a hurry you can buy the prepackaged tartshells...No judgment here I do it too! The filling options are endless so try a few different kinds and find your favourite.
