Cherries, cherries, cherries

Cherries for days via Snacking on Sunshine


I adore cherries. In the spring, I wander down the streets where I know there are cherry trees ready to shake out their pastel skirts and when they bloom – oh man.  I could spend every dreamy day wandering through the pink blossoms. I get equally excited when the awkward out-of-season cherries are replaced by succulent beauties like these at the market. They basically cost their weight in gold, but the season is so short that I never hesitate to splurge on a precious bag.

We’ve been delighting in our cherries just as they are: cool-crisp from the fridge with notes like wine and summer sunshine. I’ve been scouring the internet for more ways enjoy them while the short season lasts, and these are some of the recipes I’ve bookmarked:

If you have any cherry recipes I simply must try, please leave me a comment with the link (or the recipe itself, if you’re so inclined ^^).


An ode to figs on a lazy morning

Sweet, simple, perfect, beautiful figs.


Pair them with a buttery croissant from the bakery down the cobblestone street, and you have perfection.
