A simple summer treat


This weekend was low-key. We ate a tasty breakfast here, saw this exhibit, biked to the market, hit the pool with friends, and spent a lot of time reading. I called my dad on Father's Day, but we won't celebrate until I go to my parents' house later this week.

When I saw this week's Food Matters Project recipe, I was excited. All I could think about was how perfect the flavors of sweet, juicy cherries are with rich, bitter dark chocolate. I first thought I would make scones—and I did end up making blueberry ones—but I decided to share a simple summer treat instead. See the original recipe hosted by Margarita and see what others made here.
All you need is fresh, ripe cherries and your favorite dark chocolate bar. That's it. Seriously. There's no oven or appliance needed for this dessert. There's no gluten or dairy involved (if you get dark chocolate, it shouldn't contain milk). Just break this out after dinner (or anytime really), and let the cherries and chocolate do their thing. Sometimes the simplest things are the best.

Oh, and I wanted to share what I've been spending a lot of time on the past month. The second magazine I designed for Society Social is now online! Part two will be coming soon...
