Summer is here and that means one thing: our favorite fruits have finally arrived. Since they'll only be around for the next couple of months, it's our responsibility to get our fill before they disappear again (or at least, that's the way we like to look at it). While we're fans of all the fruits out there, there's something truly special about cherries -- and all the recipes you can make with them.

It might have something to do with the cherry's small size, making them so easy to snack on (and just all around cute). Or maybe it's because these little fruits hold just as much flavor as the biggest of peaches. Whatever the case may be, we think you should take advantage with as many cherry recipes as you can make.
