  1. Yum. The flavour of almonds goes so well with dark stone fruit- plums or cherries. Actually it goes well with any fruit, apples, pears, apricots or peaches too. I think I just love almonds with anything.

  2. Oooh this looks delicious! Thanks for sharing, Lorelle. I hope you are doing great. By the way, cherries have great anti inflammatory effects on muscles! I’m a runner and it’s supposed to be great for recovering from a run. 😊
