cherry cheesecake sounds really good and that is the 2nd person to mention it so i think i will be looking up this recipe to see how easy it is. i am not a very good cook so it has to be something pretty easy and i know that he would love this he loves cherries and he loves cheesecake so it would be the perfect combination :) i have never heard of cherry jello cake. how do you make it? if you do not know for sure that is ok i will just have to look it up online before i go to the store :)

the easy way i make cheesecake is too buy one thats a box mix then buy the cherrys and put them on the top its simple and yummy. And i have no idea how to make a jello cake i am not much of a cook, but i know someone who made them and they are so good. I know you use white cake mix and you have to add the jello pour it throught the cake when the jello is warm and i believe you cook the cake first but, i am not positive.

I personally love to make Cherry muffins, they're a quick and yummy snack for guests! You just follow a basic muffin recipe (and batter), it's easy to search up a recipe online for preparation instructions and ingredients! I use fresh chopped cherries, but frozen or canned can work well too. Good luck!

that is a good idea i didnt even think about muffins. he likes muffins to he just hates to have to cook them. now i can try and cook them and add cherries for a good surprise for him. i will have to look into this. even if i dont get to it this week it would make a great breakfast food for him also. he doesnt usually eat in the mornings because he runs out of time to fix it since he lets me sleep in sometimes so if i make these we either have dessert of breakfast. thank you for the great idea :) it sounds really good :)

No problem! Sharing recipes is so fun! I especially like muffins because they can be eaten anytime during the day, they're not just a breakfast/lunch food. Happy baking!

yes i also enjoy sharing recipes specially the ones that my grandma use to use :) that is very true and i also enjoy that you can use muffins for a snack or to give to company when they come over. muffins are so much better when eatin at another time other than breakfast lol.

Mmm cherry deserts... Well my all time favorite is cherry custard tarts. Custard on the bottom of the tart and sweet cherries on top. You could also make a cherry trifle. That would be made of layers of cake, custard and a cherry sauce with whole cherries in it. Or even a cherry cheese cake. =)

thank you i think i will have to try that specially when i want a dessert to surprise everyone with and i do not have a lot of time. these seem easy enough so even if i do not do them this week (which i may try the custard cherry pie and take some to my grandma since she loves cherry things also) but i will definately be trying them at some point :)

i always loved when my grandma made my grandpa cherry cakes for his birthday because he also loved cherries. they were sooo good i just never cared how she made them until it was to late and she cant get around well enough to teach me any more. so i am excited to try and do it myself :) i jsut have to start off slow since i am not very good at cooking but i have to start somewhere. i also heard that they provide us with a lot of the main vitamins that we need. not sure if it is true because i know they have sugar in them but i do know that people eat cherried all the time even just plain so they cant be to bad for anyone lol.
