It's The Pits!

Sour Cherry Jam Turnovers.

I found these great "more fruit, less sugar" jams on sale at the store and knew I'd be able to make something out of them, so I picked up Sour Cherry, Apricot and Blackberry. This was the first experiment.

Speaking of Sour Cherries...(Dana Angelo gives good face)!

I work with Dana. In an alternate universe, I wouldn't be old enough to be her Dad. We share a deep love of human oddities. I wanted to show my admiration in sugar:

Is it real or is it cake? I tried to capture Dana's 23 years of indifference in cake. Chocolate/Vanilla cake with Raspberry filling, dash of brilliance, pinch of sarcasm and a liberal sprinkling of ego....just like her. Happy Birthday, my sweet narcissist!
