When I first started my blog I was trying to post 6 times a week.  I eventually scaled back to 5 posts a week when the weekends were just too crazy.  Even that got tiring very fast, and I realized when I took my time the end product was better anyways so I slowed to […]

I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but we live in a place that produces a variety of different fruits and one of the major ones is cherries.  My parents even live on a cherry orchard so usually we get some cherries to freeze and dry and just to enjoy.  So all year long I have […]
