Fresh Cherries, Vanilla Creme Fraiche, Walnut Pesto, Balsamic Ice Cream

I am a big fan of cherries and think they are best just the way they are.  I can grab a bag from a vendor on the corner, sit in the park and kill a day people watching.  One of my favorite things to do. Unfortunately, most desserts made with cherries are cooked to death or with a ton of sugar or booze.  It totally kills the cherry and I don’t understand why you would do it.  Now, cherry pie… that’s different.  Don’t argue with me.  Remember McDonald’s cherry pies??  Oh man!!

Brandi’s Derby Hat

I am back in Ohio not even a month when my best friend Brandi give’s me work to do.  I wasn’t really concerned because if Brandi is up to something it is going to be pure tomfoolery and lot’s of laughter, plus if the job get’s done…  well, that’s a celebration in itself because usually when we are together, not a damn thing gets accomplished.
