Rhubarb Cherry Honey Lemonade: Luscious. LOVE!

A few days ago, a friend of mine gave me a generous bundle of her fresh garden rhubarb. I was thinking about all kinds of ways to use it up instead of in pie, muffin or squares but none of those appealed to me. Don’t get me wrong, any of those choices would have been […]
