Bad rhubarb experiences. Any recipes to convert me?

I have to agree - FRESH is the only way to eat/cook with rhubarb. My mother had a plant in the backyard and that is my total understanding of working with this wonderful plant.

Although, frozen might be tolerable. If you trust the packaging company.

Right now: Hubby is making Homemade Chocolate Cake http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,176,1... - first time try. Crossing fingers.

Later today: I'm making Chef John's Banana Bread, http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chef-joh... Have to add cinnamon & nutmeg (recipe doesn't call for them) and skip the chocolate chips (don't keep them in the house), but it's one of the best we've tried - thus far.

Sometime this month: Modifying a Lemon Meringue Pie recipe for Lime Meringue Pie.

Chocolate Sponge Cake

The standard substitution is 3 tbsp cocoa powder + 1 tbsp fat (shortening, oil, or butter). If you use shortening or butter, it's easiest to melt it first.
