I’m back with another delicious recipe as we celebrate Cherry Week here at Juggling Real Food and Real Life. I am celebrating cherry season with a week of brand new recipes featuring Skylar-Rae cherries thanks to my partnership with Stemilt. Stemilt grows the “sweetest cherry you will ever eat.” This Stemilt exclusive looks similar to the well-known Rainier cherry, but is both firmer and sweeter than other cherries you’ll find at stores. With cherries this sweet, it is easy to create amazing recipes that your family is sure to love. Today, I am sharing my recipe for a Cherry Compote.
Stemilt provided me with the cherries for this week’s recipes. My love for super sweet cherries is all my own.

Just a few years ago, I had never made baked oatmeal. Then I gave the blueberry baked oatmeal recipe a try and I’ve been hooked ever since. I happily toss ingredients into my mixing bowl and make baked oatmeal on a regular basis. I really love to make baked oatmeal in the muffin tins because it makes a nice portion size that can be eaten at home for a relaxing breakfast heated up in a bowl with warm milk poured over it. It is also completely portable if I have a morning where I need to run out of the house tossing breakfast at the kids.
The pumpkin pie spices in this recipe really punch up the flavor and go perfectly with the sweetness of the cherries. In fact, this recipe is so delicious and elegant looking that it can easily be served as a dessert with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Whether you serve this Sweet Cherry Baked Oatmeal for breakfast or as a dessert, your family is sure to love it.
