Mom's Rhubarb Crisp on Day 3 of #KickOffToSummerWeek2014 with #GourmetGarden Giveaway!

Welcome to Day #3 of Kick Off to Summer Week, a multi-blogger event co-host by Lauren of From Gate to Plate and Summer of Summer Scraps.

With summer quickly approaching and Memorial Day in a few weeks, we wanted to make sure you had plenty of ideas for your Memorial Day activities. Each day we will be serving up a variety of different appetizers, main dishes, desserts, decor, printables and more all centered around the up-coming Memorial Day. We hope you enjoy all of these wonderful ideas.

Tune in each day starting with Monday, May 12 and ending on Saturday, May 17. We have great prizes up for grabs throughout the week so you will not want to miss out on any of the days!  Follow #KickOffToSummerWeek2014 on Twitter to keep up to date with all of our spectacular ideas and giveaways!

Nothing says summer to me like my Mom's Rhubarb Crisp. Sweet and tart, with a crunchy top, then with a little bit of cream on top, this dessert is the definition of summertime heaven.
