I just realized that I’m hitting the point where some of my old content is, well, old. Okay, old might be a bit of an exaggeration, but some of my content is certainly unfamiliar, so every once and a while I’ll re-post archived recipes. I actually cook from my recipes here, so I’ll post seasonal dishes that we’ve been enjoying.
The latest? We ate this Pasta with Corn and Roasted Tomatoes for dinner tonight. Fresh, buttered corn—the first of the season here!—tossed with sweet roasted tomatoes, parmesan and pasta. Simply perfect.
And then the Vanilla Poached Cherries…
Oh how I love you so.
We’ve been devouring cherries. Like, in an obscene way. I grab a bag (or two or three) of our favorite stone fruit almost every time I’m out. My freezer is already packed with two big bags of sour cherries. We cannot stop.
You know about this Peach and Cherry Crumble Pie. I also whipped up a batch of these Vanilla Poached Cherries over the weekend. They were as big a revelation this year as they were last. This is a light dessert heavy on flavor. It’s a heavenly summer treat spooned over ice cream or, if you want to go super healthy, vanilla yogurt. That’s if you can manage to refrain from eating these babies before they hit the serving bowl.
Grab some corn and cherries and whip up these treats. I promise—again—that you’ll want to save these favorites in your recipe box.
