I always use a bobby pin. The big ones work best and of course wash it really well first. Stick the curved end into the top of the cherry where the stem was and scoop out the pit. It always pops out easily. I've actually pitted a ton of cherries this way for jam and didn't think it was much harder or messier than using a pitter and no need for a uni-tasker!

I made "the king's peach crumble" using the peach crumble recipe that you guys posted this summer (frozen peaches but still delicious!!). :)

My dad used to make cashew milk often when I was a kid. He uses 1 cup of raw cashews and blends them with warm water (always warm was his suggestion because it helps the cashews to blend into a smoother consistency), adds a few teaspoons of honey and then mixes in more water. We usually would have to cool it off with ice cubes so that we could drink it immediately rather than waiting for it to cool in the refrigerator. It's really creamy and I much prefer it to other nut milks on cereal. It's the only milk that I ever want to drink an entire glass of (usually I just use milk in cooking or on cereal). I have wondered why it isn't made and sold in stores. Perhaps because cashews are more expensive?

I also just made this tonight with fresh plums and frozen sour cherries (I froze them just last week so practically "fresh") I just took it out of the oven 10 minutes ago and had some with plain yoghurt. SO good.

I grew up in Tucson Arizona and have fond memories of climbing loquat trees in the alley behind our house to reach the fruit.

I have that exact set of the Vintage Paella Pans and I looooove cooking in them (the little blue one is perfect for one fried egg). :o)

My mom and I made our own tortillas this morning and ate them with black beans, scrambled eggs, avocado, cheese, salsa, and fresh spinach. We also had "mimosas" with sparkling wine left over from last night. Delicious! This afternoon I made quesadillas with the left over tortillas for lunch.
