Go Beyond Sweet Cherry Pie with 10 Amazing Cherry Recipes

When cherry season rolls around, I'm one heck of a happy woman. I buy bag after bag and then... I just eat them straight out of the bag. I always think that I should make something with the cherries but I don't. Not because we don't have a cherry pitter.

I sometimes think we should put up cherries, but we don't -- I just keep on eating them out of the bag. One of these days, I'm going to do something with the cherries besides just eat them. In fact, I'd like to make all of these cherry recipes. Or convince someone to make them for me.
