Cherries! I prefer my cherries with sugar between two flaky crusts, or in the form of a gummy candy. Growing up, I never ate cherries, the fruit. Now I have a better appreciation of their actual beauty! Cherries are such beautifully shaped fruits and actually are yummy to eat out of a bag…or a jelly jar (Ok, they would be better in this jar with sugar!)

Driving through Keene Valley in the Adirondacks is an adventure in itself. After whatever the day has brought- hiking, biking, even shopping, there is nothing so rewarding as one of Sandra’s chocolate chip cookies at the ADK Café & Bakery. Why is it that someone else’s cookies always taste better than any we make ourselves? If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Keene Valley, stop at the ADK Café and tell Sandra I sent you to try a cookie. It will just add to what will most likely be an unforgettable day!
