Cherry Ice Cream
Fresh cherry ice cream has been on my list of things to make for several years now. I finally got around to giving it a try this year after receiving a big box of cherries from our uncle. I have to admit I was expecting it to be much more bold than it was. It is a very mild flavored ice cream. I suppose this really shouldn't surprise me as cherries are a fairly mild fruit as well. It is, however, very smooth and creamy and definitely still tastes like cherries. I think next time I would…
Cherry Almond Muffins
I never know what to bake with fresh cherries. I mean, besides cherry pie, of course. I could eat buckets of fresh cherries just off the tree, obviously not a great idea for my poor tummy, so baking with them is the next best thing. I decided to whip up some easy peasy muffins and throw some cherries and almonds in there for good measure. It only requires a handful of fresh cherries so in the off season you won't break the bank getting them at the store. During the cherry season it's a great…

Cherry and Chocolate = A Beautiful Marriage
I have a lovely little dessert to share with you today. My Welsh friend and culinary twin Jo sent me the link to 19 wonderfully, sinfully easy dump cakes. The one I tried first was a cherry chocolate variety. Only three ingredients, yes…three! It can be prepared in under 10 minutes and bakes for 1 hour. This worked out splendidly as our son and his family came over for dinner last week. Our dinner menu consisted of grilled ice –box pork (I will definitely be writing about that later), baked…

Anna Sultana’s Orange Cranberry Bread and The Beaver Moon
During the holiday season it’s a bit tricky to know how much food to have on hand. Bake too many cookies and you’ll be munching on gingerbread during Lent and, maybe even at Easter. Don’t bake enough and you’ll be padding the cookie platter with oreos which nobody believes you baked. It’s a tricky time, alright. Managers in grocery stores also face the same problem. If the meat department runs out of turkeys or hams, well, do you remember that scene in Christmas with the Kranks, when Nora…
