Sweet, ripe cherries are so perfect it is almost a sin to do a whole lot to them. This looks fast and easy and the kids would like it and the cherry flavor would still prevail.

I'm so excited about this one! I love cherries-especially on the beach-reminds me of when I was little and our family and friends went a summer house each year. We (the girls) used to make cherry earrings-by finding two cherries, joined at the stem, and hanging them over our ears! So great!

We have cherries here in Southwest Ohio, but mostly sour cherries (my favorite!). This gives me motivation to pit them all =)

Our cherries just went on sale here! I am inspired for chilled soups. My Hungarian grandmother always worked wonders in cherry season.

In tears, remembering a joyful reunion with a pal from 50 years ago, and her grandma-in-law's recipe...

I love how food unearths forgotten sweet memories. The whiff of some foods whisk me back to my childhood in an instant.

Well, here in Washington St., they are not in season yet, but the markets are carrying ones from California. As luck would have it, we are at the very end of what I vacuum sealed and froze from last year! Hmmm, now what shall I use them for...

Cherries, cherries are everywhere in the Valley this stoplights, roadside stands, farmers' markets and local groceries. Down in Napa, Whole Foods has a mountain sized display of them. It is just about high season for my favorite fruit.

I don't believe this!! I was planning a trip to the Farmers' Market tomorrow just to buy these little beauties. More inspiration!
