As I mentioned in a recent Tweet, I think the universe is conspiring to foist its in-season rhubarb upon me.  If not the universe, then certainly the blogosphere.  Ladies and gentlemen of the audience, allow me to present:

Exhibit A.  Have never heard of 'frangipane' before... but here it is:  Strawberry-Rhubarb Frangipane Galette from The Dog's Breakfast

Exhibit B.  The mini-version of above!  Rustic Rhubarb Tarts from Smitten Kitchen.

Exhibit C.  This one might be my favorite.  Rhubarb Crunch Coffee Cake from Kitchen Simplicity.

Exhibit D.  From a favorite blog - this cake looks so refined:  Lemon Buttermilk Rhubarb Bundt Cake from Craft Lovely.

Exhibit E.  Item 1.  From the New York Times Dining and Wine section - flashback to 1989 - Rhubarb Strawberry Mousse.

And Item 2.  The modern-day retort:  Honey-and-Ricotta Mousse with Strawberry-Rhubarb Broth.  Mm-Mmmm.  (Again, credit to the Times.)

I could probably continue on to Exhibit Z but I'll wrap it up here.  As most of you know, I'm not much of a baker, so I might not get to any of these recipes.  But if any of you want to give them a whirl, I hereby offer my services as official taste-tester.  Just sayin'.
