Summer Rainer Cherries and Weekend Reading

Summer Rainer Cherries and Weekend Reading

When I saw these cherries at the farmers market I had to scoop some up fast, not only were people going crazy for them, almost like the peony madness that ensued there earlier this month ... but because I love their color and I knew I wanted to sketch them.

I came home inspired to discover a new recipe incorporating these sweet rainer variation, but I primarily found recipes for pies and something called a 'clafoutis' - neither really my style ... but I did find this 'muddler' cocktail on Sprouted Kitchen that sounds delightfully appropriate for dreamy summer days - more my style.  I love reading cookbooks because they give me hope that if I follow along I too can have tasty results to share with friends and family.  I plan to keep skimming through them this weekend in search of new summer dinner ideas and of course it will all begin with Alice Waters โ™ก
