cherry picker

my sister and i picked up these guys last wknd. we ran through them in about five seconds.

here are some other new ways to enjoy this fruit. i'm trying to branch out of my i-only-eat-uncooked-fruit thing.



this is one of the more unique twists on a blt i've seen. the boy and i make blts a few times a month. could be a cool way to mix it up. plus, i always always have time for a sweet/salty combo.

via honey & jam
for all you freaks peeps out there who like hot fruit desserts, this crumble from honey & jam looks pretty easy.

via endless simmer


these popsicles have it all: 

fresh cherries
green apples (!)

plus, there's a recipe for homemade sweet + sour mix!

just dance

one of the best parts of summer?

the return of one of my personal faves: so you think you can dance

[ok look. i'm not adding the question mark. i keep reading it incorrectly in my head when it's there.]

i love all the contestants every year (almost. i'm looking at you sabra), and this year is no exception. but i just have so much love for some of the earlier seasons.

and i got two little numbers for ya.

my fave this year?


although i have a near-perfect record of never predicting who will actually win, i hope she pulls it off.
