I am usually ALL IN when it comes to the COZY feels of oatmeal in the morning however with the weather warming up my "OATMEAL MAKING" has taken a bit of a back burner.

Love from the ov,
Who knew we could grow cherries? I thought this was solely for the sunny province of BC; none the less I have cherries in my kitchen and could not let these beauties go to waste (thanks to my awesome neighbors for the gift). The BIG question of the day (...oh how I love summer holidays) was what am I going to make with these tart little things?
