    ooo–you had me at step 1! You lucky girl!

  3. Jacqueline says:

    Looks delicious. I’m so jealous you have a cherry tree. They are one of my favorite fruits but so expensive at the store.

  4. Annelise says:

    I have to admit that every post about fresh fruit and beautiful flowers growing in your yard make me jeeeaaaalooouuus. Growing up in CA I loved picking cherries off our trees. Living in AZ… well, the fruits and flowers aren’t quite so abundant. Except, of course, our delicious citrus.

    OH MY GOODNESS!DOES that look like FUN and DELICIOUS! I love cherry ANYTHING! Unfortunately my son is highly allergic to cherries so none for us! YOur little one looks so sweet holding her harvest!

  6. Such GORGEOUS photos! Looks delish!

  7. Ana says:

    I’m just sayin’

    Seriously….it’s a true oxymoron in that this post is a beautiful torture.

    You temptress, you! ;)

    Great post….just what I needed to see on this rainy weekend! I have never seen a cherry pit remover before…interesting.

  13. Tonia says:

    Simple Fabulousness.

  14. Shelia says:

    Oh, my goodness! My favorite fruit is cherries!! You grew cherries? I’m so jealous!! These look so wonderful and you’ve made me drool!!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  15. Loved it! Especially your little cutie with the harvest. :) I love recipes that go straight from the garden to the table. :)

    Unfortunately, my weekend is not shaping up. Missed church this morning b/c the right side of my face was completely swollen. I looked like a freak science experiment. Benadryl and cold compresses have helped. Praying it doesn’t come back overnight. I’d like to enjoy the holiday with everyone else. :s

  16. YUMMMMMMMMM. Love the pictures…I drooled a little ;-)

  17. Kelsey says:

    Gorgeous cherries and beautiful daughter! I’ve never been much for cobbler but I think I might have to give your recipe a try and see if it changes my mind!

  18. OK, I’m officially jealous. But, I do have blackberries in the backyard. :)

  19. Melinda says:

    Nothing better than fresh cherries. Your pictures are beautiful. I love milk glass, so I love that picture! Have you ever made cherry jam? It is so good on homemade biscuits!!!! Love & blessings from NC!

  20. Vanessa says:

    omg…droooooooooool :-)

  21. Charo says:

    Qué delicia!


  22. jeannine says:

    Few more weeks and we’ll have cherries too(N.Y.)! If the crows don’t thieve them first! ( although the sight of a glossy black crow holding a ruby red cherry in it’s beak is beautiful- once)
    Want to make brandied (drunken)cherries this year- anyone have a good recipe?

  23. Ellen says:

    Those cherries are beautiful…wish I had a handful of them now!

  24. oh my, does that cobbler look incredible!
    lovely photos!

  25. Katie says:

    Drooling!! :)

  26. Oksana says:

    Awesome, a totally awesome post!

  27. Delecious. Have a great (gourmet) time!

  28. OK, yummy! It’s just wrong to show those pictures! :)

  29. Meeks says:

    I feel so backwards…but I learnt two things today…
    ..what a cherry tree looks like (i know, i know! shameful)
    ..and that there is a gizmo that de-stones cherries!

  30. Kathleen says:

    lol don’t feed bad Meeks, I am the same way! Love cherries but never saw a tree and I had no idea that that machine existed either! Learn something new everyday!

  31. Andréann says:

    Beautiful pictures!! It makes me hungry, and I don’t even like to eat cherries!

  32. Shannon says:

    What a great post — and how wonderful to have your own cherry tree too!

  33. These “steps” just made me smile! Happy Memorial Day to you too, from the very tip of the coast here in North Carolina(just a few miles away right?)! Love your blog!

  34. Thank you for posting some beautiful pictures and the recipe. I LOVE Cherries. Happy Memorial Day to you as well!

  35. Rhonda says:

    What time do I come over for dessert?! Yummmmm.

  36. kristina says:

    That looks yummy!! FYI for next time…don’t pick the whole nodule with the leaves, just pick the cherry and stem. It does take longer but you will get better yields next year. (our family had a cherry orchard and my parents drummed that into me) The starts for next years blossoms are in those nodules. Cheers.

  37. CentsationalGirl says:

    Thanks Kristina ! My hub scolded me for the very same thing ! Will do.


  38. Brooke says:

    Yummy ! The photos are wonderful too – love how you set the one up with the dessert in the bowl with the cherries on the side.

  39. Victoia Kageni says:

    Very nice.:-) and the little Cherry princess …a picture of true bliss!!

  40. Juice says:

    How adorable is your little one! Great post.

  41. Irene R says:

    I don’t like cherries much, but that was great!

  42. ButterYum says:

    Ow wow – you’re so lucky to have a cherry tree. That’s fantastic, and your little helper is adorable!!!

    One of the best memorial day posts I read. I don’t know if your “ten steps to…” is a feature around here but it absolutely should be. Adding you to my reader so I don’t miss out. And when I learn how to follow, I’ll do that, too ;)
