It’s a Cherry Hot Giveaway!

Inspired by the heat.  Or maybe all the cherries we have been eating…..and berries.
Move over grapes, apples, and bananas.  Blueberries, strawberries, and cherries are in town!

Tell all your friends, anyone that will listen about this giveaway…

If you win, you will get this adorable cherry/berry collander (perfect for little hands), cherry and olive pit remover by Zyliss, cherry pie kitchen towel, and a year supply of cherries! 
OK, so maybe you won’t win a year supply of cherries, but you will win all of this:

What I love about this collander?  It is small and colorful, perfect for kids.  Excite them. Engage them in helping with food prep by rinsing the cherries, berries, grape tomatoes, etc.  Fresh fruit makes the perfect snack.  Grabbing a cold hanful of cherries is a great way to satisfy you on these very cherry hot days. You get to choose red, white, or green collander if you win! 

Kids Kitchen Konnection:
Kids love to use the cherry pit remover, just another way to get them involved.

    My favorite cherry recipe is def my Dads homemade cherry vanilla nut ice cream. it was the perfect summer treat when I was growing up. I am having him track down the recipe for me.

    My favorite cherry recipe is straight out of the colander! I think a cherry all by itself is just perfect. I would choose the green colander.

    My favorite cherry recipe is the Classic Cherry Pie recipe from Joy of Baking. I don’t want to copy it down because of copyright laws so I hope a link will do: . I’ve even made the star crust (which came out well, but not as well as the photo lol). If I win, I’d choose red. asthenight at gmail dot com

    I am rather a purist and like cherries best plain, but we also make a yummy smoothie- vanilla yogurt, handful of cherries, flax seed & honey if needed.

    Black Cherry Cream Parfaits –

    I would love the red one.
