Summer is the ideal time to socialize outdoors with friends and family
This cherry crumble is the perfect dessert after a day of hiking, being out on the water, or playing in the sun. Imagine a meal on the patio of grilled meat, veggies, a crisp salad – and a cold beer or great glass of wine – followed by this cherry crumble. In my mind, this is the definition of a perfect summer meal.
