This week's recipe was chosen by Amanda by Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake. I have grown up eating lots of rhubarb because it's one of my mom's favorites, so I was happy to be able to make it on my own for once! I was suprised that Dorie said cooked cherries have no flavor, because I thought they had tons... but she was right! They really didn't have much flavor in the end. I guess the 'flavor' i'm used to is from canned pie filling, packed with sugar and artificial flavoring...yum! So anyway, I loved this for a few reasons, one is because I always sub in a little whole wheat flour when baking, and this already had that, which I liked. Another was because it allowed me to be a genius for a day and figure out a quick and easy way to remove the pits from the cherries - with a straw! And lastly, I was able to put my husband to work! Removing cherry pits, no problem! See photos below :) Thanks, Amanda, for picking a great recipe!
