Cherry Pie

Recipe courtesy of Peter Sterk
 FoodTv

Ingredients
4 cups fresh or frozen tart cherries
1 to 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1/8 tablespoon almond extract (optional)
Your favorite pie crust or pie dough recipe for 2 crust pie
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, to dot
1 tablespoon granulated sugar, to sprinkle

Read more at: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/cherry-pie-recipe.html?oc=linkback



Directions
Watch how to make this recipe
Place cherries in medium saucepan and place over heat. Cover. After the cherries lose considerable juice, which may take a few minutes, remove from heat. In a small bowl, mix the sugar and cornstarch together. Pour this mixture into the hot cherries and mix well. Add the almond extract, if desired, and mix. Return the mixture to the stove and cook over low heat until thickened, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and let cool. If the filling is too thick, add a little water, too thin, add a little more cornstarch.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Use your favorite pie dough recipe. Prepare your crust. Divide in half. Roll out each piece large enough to fit into an 8 to 9-inch pan. Pour cooled cherry mixture into the crust. Dot with butter. Moisten edge of bottom crust. Place top crust on and flute the edge of the pie. Make a slit in the middle of the crust for steam to escape. Sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a rack to cool.

A Beautiful Mind welcomes

MALEEKA T. HOLLAWAY
(GEORGIA / ALABAMA)






To show a diverse reach of readers that everything is possible all over the globe, what states or countries have you lived in? What state do you live in now? 


I was born in Atlanta, Georgia, but I currently reside in Huntsville, Alabama.


1.  
If there's a song that reflects your vibe, what would that song be?  Do you meditate, pray or/and take time to mentally relax?  If so, what part of the day? For how long?

 The song that would reflect my vibe right now is Satisfied by The Walls Group. I am in a place in life where I am finally thankful for just being alive. I pray and meditate many times throughout the day. I pray when I wake up, before I go to bed, other times during the day when I need to communicate with my God. Sometimes my prayers are quick and simple, while at other times I pray until I am led to stop. When I relax, I like to dive into a good book.
 

2. Congratulations on your blessings and new goals. Tell us about 2 great projects/events that you were proud to be apart of in this lifetime.

The first major project I have been fortunate to be a part of this year is the co-authoring of the new book with so many different powerful and inspiring women! Writing in this book birthed a purpose in me that I never realized existed! Since I began telling my story, I have met so many amazing people who have had similar experiences or that are dealing with feelings of hurt from their pasts and present. The next project I am working on is launching an organization geared towards bringing people together to discuss and combat real issues that we encounter as people on an everyday basis.

3.What early part of your life's journey, prompted you to create 20 BEAUTIFUL WOMEN VOLUME 2 and have it become such a necessary outlet for you?

I have always wanted to be a writer since I was a little girl, however, I never planned on my life being the foundation from which my first story would come. In 2010, I found myself in a marriage where I encountered mental and physical abuse and this union lasted until April of this year when the judge signed off on the divorce papers. I was in multiple situations I never dreamed I would find myself in. As I began to break free, I realized as I wrote or spoke to others about it, the lighter I began to feel. Now, if I go days without writing, I get anxious. That’s not necessarily a good thing (lol) however, it is my life.

4. With some of your successful experiences, allowing you to connect with other purposeful peoplewhat are some of your daily activities ?

My days have gone from a boring routine to unexpected adventures! It seems like every other day I am receiving messages from others about their experiences and sometimes I get wrapped up in helping others that I forget to do simple things like eat! J Between my day job, taking a full load of graduate classes, caring for my daughter, working on Life Coach certification, getting books mailed out, making sure I read some type of literature everyday and also making sure I write at least 500 words a day, I sometimes have to make time to sleep. Social media has been a major connector for me! This summer I made it a goal to attend a minimum of five live networking events. No day has the same schedule and I love it this way!
 
5.  What do you do for fun? What new fun thing would you like to try?

 I really am a simple woman. When I want to have fun, that time is spent around friends and family. I absolutely love to eat and laugh! I have never been a partier, so a night in with Netflix and popcorn is a great night! I would like to do a few dare-devil stunts like skydiving, zip-lining, and bungee jumping. I am getting the itch to travel as much as possible. If I could I would be a professional globe-trotter. I just want to be able to have no regrets at the end of my days.

6.  One thing on my Life List (something you'd still love to accomplish but haven't done yet in this lifetime) is... At 25, I already have a long list of things I want to accomplish! The one thing I have always wanted to do is to establish  a world-class academy for less-privileged children and teens. While I have been blessed to have more than enough, I recognize that there are some who have had to struggle to make a place for themselves in society. My goal is to expose them to education and opportunities that they would never encounter on a regular basis and to make sure they know that they really can do what they believe they can do, no matter how impossible it may seem. 

7.  What/Who keeps you motivated in this ever changing world?
 God. I know that I am only alive today because He has a mission for me to accomplish here on Earth. Nothing else motivates me more than having and feeling the love of God on a daily basis--through my child, my family, my friends, my tangible blessings, the list could go on for days. I know there are people who have yet to get to know him, and those are the people He has kept me here to reach. I truly believe that every day I wake up is another day I am gifted to live to help win souls for Christ.

8.  What are 2 qualities that you prefer and respect about a mate at this point in your life? 

This just made me laugh! What are two qualities I prefer and respect in a mate? The first would be honesty! I am in this stage where I am totally naked when it comes to what I feel, why I feel and who I feel it with. I have a past just like the next person, so I would need my mate to be able to be one hundred percent honest with me about themselves and be understanding and accepting when it comes to my past and present. The second quality I would prefer is for my mate to be loving! First Corinthians 13 tells it all! Because I have been married before I have a better understanding of what love is and what it could be, and I do my best to be just that: patient, kind, forgiving, understanding, etc. I need my mate to be the same way in that aspect.

9.  Who gave you 1 really good piece of advice early on and what was it?
When I was around 11 or 12, a reverend from Montgomery, AL preached a sermon using the scripture Galatians 6:9, “Do not get tired of doing good, for in due season you will reap the harvest if you do not give up.” Being that young I did not fully understand it, but now, whenever I do get frustrated or feel like giving up, I can hear that preacher reading that scripture. It is my absolute favorite.
 

10. What piece of business advice would you like to share?
The best business advice I can give to someone is to never stop learning and perfecting yourself and your vision. There is always room for improvement!
 

11. What is NEXT for you in 2015 and beyond?
2015 is my year of building and launching! Most people get excited to start something new, and I am also, however, I know that it is the follow through is most important. Anything I start, I will see it until it is complete. I have one book out and I am working on having the next one done before this year is out! This year is all about exposure! I am going to be an international empowerment speaker and author. And so far, I am on a roll!
 

12.   Choose 1: High Heel, Low Heel OR No Heel?                                          High heels. 
        Choose 1: Novels, Biographies, Inspirational Book OR Blog ?        Inspirational books.

        Choose 1: Fresh Fruit, Fruit Smoothie OR Fresh Fruit Juiced?     Fresh fruit.




13. What ONE word would best describe YOU right now?

One word that describes me right now : THRIVING!




Optional SideNote: In 2 sentence or less, what do you think of the YAAY YOU Blogazine? 

YAAY YOU Blogazine is amazing! It celebrates ordinary people doing extraordinary things!!

KAREN BERNOD
(NEW YORK)




To show a diverse reach of readers that everything is possible all over the globe, what states or countries have you lived in? What state do you live in now?

I CURRENTLY LIVE IN BROOKLYN USA. 
A CITY WITHIN A CITY. NYC

1. If there's a song that reflects your vibe, what would that song be?  Do you meditate, pray or/and take time to mentally relax?  If so, what part of the day? For how long?

THAT’S A GOOD QUESTION, HMMM LET ME SEE WELL THERE WOULD BE A FEW. ONE WOULD BE “EVERYTHING MUST CHANGE”.
THAT’S JUST TRUE IN EVERY ASPECT OF EXISTENCE SO I CHOOSE THAT ONE FOR NOW! I PRAY EVERYDAY, SEVERAL TIMES A DAY. FOR VARIOUS REASONS. I DON’T HAVE TO BE ANYWHERE SPECIFIC EITHER. WHEN I READ THE BIBLE OR ANY BOOK THAT TAKES REFLECTION AND ANY TYPE OF FOCUS, IT’S USUALLY IN A QUIET PLACE. I USUALLY LOVE MUSIC PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND. CLASSICAL IS MY CHOICE, NO VOICES JUST INSTRUMENTS MELODY AND SPACE.

2. Congratulations on your blessings and new goals. Tell us about 2 great projects/events that you were proud to be apart of in this lifetime.

WELL, I AM MOST PROUD OF THE FACT THAT IN THIS BUSINESS CALLED 'MUSIC', I AM STILL HERE.”Started from the Bottom now we’re here”, IN THE WORDS OF DRAKE. I WILL HAVE TO SAY, WORKING WITH MY IDOL CHAKA KHAN, IS MOST REWARDING, SATISFYING AND GRATIFYING. IT BRINGS FORTH THE SAYING 'DREAMS DO COME TRUE'. I AM LIVING MY DREAM TO THE FULLEST. THE NEXT ONE THAT COMES TO MIND IS WORKING WITH PAUL SIMON AND LADY SMITH BLACK MAMBAZO. I GOT A CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC FROM BOTH THE ICON PAUL, AND THE AWESOMELY GIFTED BRUTHA’S FROM SOUTH AFRICA. SANG ON 2 ALBUMS WITH THEM AND PERFORMED AT RADIO CITY TWICE. I WAS IN HEAVEN AND I THANK GOD EVERYDAY FOR THAT BLESSING.

3. You are amazing! You have beautiful musical releases of "#PlantingSeeds", "Inspire", "Celebrate Love" and "Soul Pioneer". What early part of your life's journey, prompted you to sing and have it become such a necessary outlet for you?

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE COMPLIMENT. MUSIC IS REALLY THE FABRIC OF MY BEING. BEEN "SANGIN'" SINCE I CAME OUT THE WOMB. MAMA SAID WHEN THE DOCTOR SMACKED MY BUTT…I LET OUT A NICE 'HAAAAAA…' INSTEAD OF A 'WAAHWAAH'.  IRONICALLY I WAS BORN WITH A CLEF PALLET. MEANING THE HOLE IN THE TOP OF YOUR THROAT,  YOUR PALLET IS USUALLY OPEN WHEN YOUR BORN. ALLOWING SOUND TO COME OUT FORCED BY THE AIR FROM YOUR LUNGS. MINE WAS CLOSED. SO, MOMMY HAD TO SPEND 2 YEARS TEACHING ME HOUSE TO SPEAK. AND LAWDY LAWWD..LOL I THINK SOMETIMES SHE KINDA REGRETTED IT CUZ I HAVEN’T SHUT UP SINCE!!!! SUFFICE TO SAY IT TURNED OUT TO BE A BLESSING IN DISGUISE. GOD KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING. 

MUSIC IS MY REFUGE. IT CALMS ME, CENTERS ME, SOOTHES ME. WHILE PUTTING THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE. YOU KNOW THE WORLD COULDN’T EXIST WITH OUT IT. THINK ABOUT THAT. A WORLD WITH OUT MUSIC…OOH I CAN’T EVEN. IT IS TRULY THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE. WITH ALL THAT’S GOING ON RIGHT NOW WITH RACE RELATIONS..YOU COULD STILL PUT EACH & EVERY LAST ONE OF US IN A ROOM TOGETHER AND FOR THAT MOMENT WE WOULD HAVE CALM, TOGETHERNESS AND RESOLVE. THIS IS WHY I SIMPLY ADORE WHAT I DO, AND THANK GOD FOR GIVING ME THIS GIFT TO BE A MESSENGER THRU SONG.

4. With some of your successful experiences, allowing you to connect with other purposeful people, what are some of your daily activities ?

YOU ARE SO ELOQUENT, AND YOUR QUESTIONS ARE BEAUTIFULLY AUTHENTIC AND ORGANIC! 
DAILY I READ, PRAY, THANK GOD, TELL SOMEONE I LOVE THEM, TALK TO MY MOMMY UP IN HEAVEN, WORK ON MY CAREER / GOALS AND FOR THE MOST PART SOME FORM OF WORK OUT. I MAY NOT DO MY USUSAL 2 HOURS BOOT CAMP WORK OUT BUT I PURPOSELY MOVED ON THE 4TH FLOOR OF MY BUILDING WITH NO ELEVATOR, I WALK EVERYWHERE IN BROOKLYN YOU MUST..SO YOU CAN SEE ALL THE LOVLIENESS, AND WHEN I GRT HOME FROM WORK I HOOLA HOOP. I HAVE A 3POUND HOOLA THAT IS GOOD FOR THE CORE AND WAISTLINE. I MIGHT SKIP A DAY OR 2 BUT I GET IT IN!!!! LOL 

I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO STIMULATE ALL PARTS OF THE BODY SPIRIT AND MIND…DAILY. ESPECIALLY AS WE GET OLDER..I MEAN BETTA, LIKE VINTAGE WINE. (In the words of the Whispers (“It Jusss gets betta wit time”) .

5. What do you do for fun? What new fun thing would you like to try? 

FOR FUN I RIDE MY BIKE, I PARTY, I TRAVEL, HANG WITH MY GURLS AND GUYS.  I LOVE TO WRITE, GO TO ART EXHIBITS, ART GALLERIES, ROLLER SKATE, COMEDY SHOWS. I CAN GO ON AND ON SINCE HAVING FUN IS VERY IMPORTANT TO  ME. LIFE IS SO SHORT. GOTTA SMELL THE ROSES WHILE YOU CAN STILL DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN A ROSE AND A FLOWER. REAL TALK! 

OK, DON’T THINK I’M CRAZY BUT I HAVE AN AFFINITY FOR HANG GLIDING AND SKY DIVING..(KIND OF). AS LONG AS THE PLANE IS ABOUT AS HIGH UP AS THE PROJECTS I GREW UP IN..LMAO!!! LAFAYETTE GARDENS IN DO OR DIE BEDSTUY BROOKLYN. NO FOR REAL, NOT TOO HIGH UP BUT I AM REALLY INTERESTED IN JUMPING OUT OF A PLANE. I PARASAILED IN JAMAICA WEST INDIES A FEW TIMES. THAT’S WHAT MADE WANT TO TRY IT. I’LL PUT IT ON MY BUCKET LIST!! BELIEVE IT OR NOT PLAYING THE PIANO AND SPEAKING SPANISH FLUENTLY ARE A FEW OTHERS. I SPEAK SPANGLISH WELL. ALL OF MY BORICQUA’S , GROWING UP WITH THEM IT CAME EASY. BUT I MUST MASTER THE LANGUAGE (WELL AT LEAST CONVERSATIONALLY), BEFORE I REST MY VOICE FOR THE LAST TIME HERE ON EARTH.

6. One thing on my Life List (something you'd still love to accomplish but haven't done yet in this lifetime) is... I WOULD LOVE TO TRAVEL TO THE PACIFIC ISLANDS. LIKE HAWAII, FIDJI, BORA BORA. I’VE HAD THE BLESSING OF GOING TO THE MOTHER LAND SEVERAL TIMES, W. AFRICA, SOUTH AFRICA, SOUTHERN AFRICA AS WELL AS NORTHERN AFRICA (Which they like to refer to as the Middle East) EGYPT WHERE YOU HAVE THE SPHINX IN GIZA WITH THE PYRAMIDS, IT’S THE MOTHER LAND FROM WHICH THE 1ST ORIGINAL MAN CAME. AND IT IS SIMPLY AWESOME. IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN PUT IT ON YOUR LIST OF THINGS YOU MUST DO IN THIS LIFETIME. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. AND WHEN YOU GET THERE, RIDE A CAMEL. BEST THING EVER. 

7. What/Who keeps you motivated in this ever changing world?

GOD KEEPS ME -PERIOD. MY MOM, WHO IS NO LONGER HERE WITH US PHYSICALLY BUT WITH ME EVERY SINGLE DAY SPIRITUALLY, EMOTIONALLY, AND SOME TIMES METAPHYSICALLY. 
I RECEIVE MOTIVATION FROM ALL THAT I SEE THRU GOD AND MY FAITH, WHICH IS THE BELIEF IN THINGS YOU CANNOT SEE. I AM THE YOUNGEST OF 3. MY MOM AND I WERE VERY CLOSE.  ALL THAT SHE HAS TAUGHT AND INSTILLED IN ME HAS LEFT AN INDELIBLE PRINT IN THE FABRIC OF MY BEING. I CARRY THAT AROUND WITH ME LIKE I DO MY SKIN. THE WORLD IS A FOREVER CHANGING CRAZY WORLD. YOU NEED TO STAY GROUNDED, HUMBLE PRESENT AND AWARE. OTHERWISE YOU'RE FLOATING AIMLESSLY IN THE UNIVERSE WITHOUT A PURPOSE.
THIS IS SOMETHING I’VE LEARNED THRU TIME, LIFE, AND EXPERIENCE.

8. What are 2 qualities that you prefer and respect about a mate at this point in your life?

WOW YOU BETTA GO HEAD AND ASK THESE QUESTIONS. I LOVE IT. NOW BACK TO THE MATTER AT HAND…HMMMM GURRRRRL….HONESTY, COMPASSION AND A SENSE OF HUMOR. I KNOWWWWW I CHOSE 3.  I HAVE MANY BUT TO NARROW IT DOWN, I WOULD SAY MANY THINGS FALL IN BETWEEN THE 3 I’VE MENTIONED. 
WITHOUT HONESTY, WHICH IS A BRANCH OF  TRUST, YOU HAVE NOTHING. NO FOUNDATION TO BUILD ON. COMPASSION IS A BRANCH OF EMPATHY...( There b4 the grace of God go I) WE CAN’T HANG IF YOU CANNOT EMPATHIZE. WELL, ALL MY FRIENDS KNOW I’M A LIL’ KRAY KRAY AND I LOVE TO LAUGH. YOU CAN GIVE ME A 'MINDGAZM' WITH THE RIGHT JOKIE JOKE. ACTUALLY I THINK IT’S SEXY WHEN A MAN CAN LET HIS HAIR DOWN AND NOT TAKE HIMSELF TOO SERIOUSLY.  LAUGHTER IS TRULY THE BEST MEDICINE. 

9. Who gave you 1 really good piece of advice early on and what was it?

MY MOM TOLD ME TO NEVER GIVE UP KNOW MATTER WHAT. NEVER FOLLOW A TREND, SET IT. TREAT OTHERS THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED.  ALTHOUGH YES YOU WANT AND NEED A MAN, HE DOES NOT EQUATE YOUR WORTH. YOU COME TO THE RELATIONSHIP 100%. HE DOES NOT COMPLETE YOU NOR YOU HIM. 
(Gerry Mcguire was a Hollywood movie) SHE, MOM ALSO TOLD ME THAT I WAS A STAR AT BIRTH "AND DON’T LET NOBODY…NOBODY TAKE AWAY YOUR LITE. GOD GAVE THAT TO YOU". “I'LL ALWAYS LOVE MY MAMA..SHE’S MY FAVORITE GURL..U ONLY GET 1 U ONLY GET 1 YEEEAHH”. 




10. What piece of business advice would you like to share?

KNOW THAT THIS IS THE “BUSINESS OF MUSIC”. EXACTLY THAT. DON’T GET CAUGHT UP IN THE ROMANCE AND GLAMOR OF IT. KNOW YOUR CRAFT. HONE YOUR CRAFT. LEARN CONTRACTS, PUBLISHING, ETC.  ATLEAST THE BASICS, SO YOU CAN HAVE INTELLIGENT CONVERSATIONS ABOUT YOUR CAREER.

NEVER GIVE ANYONE COMPLETE POWER OF ATTORNEY OF YOUR MONEY AND AS OPRAH SAYS..”SIGN YOUR OWN CHECKS”.
KNOW YOUR WORTH AND UNDERSTAND THAT NOTHING IN LIFE COMES EASY.  HARD CONSISTENT, PERSISTENT WORK REALLY PAYS OFF. REJECTIONS ARE JUST A SET UP FOR SUCCESS AND TO BUILD STRONG CHARACTER. REALLY, I’M LIVING THIS. IT IS A PART OF MY TESTIMONY.

IF YOU “MAKE BEATS” KNOW WHERE THE ORIGINAL BEAT MAKER COMES FROM, WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AND SOUNDS LIKE!
TAKE A STAB AT IT. KNOW THE HISTORY OF IT. 

VENTURE OUT INTO OTHER AVENUES. VARIETY IS THE SPICE. I LIKE ALL TYPES OF MUSIC, FOOD, CLOTHES, ETC.
REALIZE THAT YOU WERE CHOSEN TO DO WHAT YOU DO FOR A DIVINE REASON. CHERISH THAT AND DON’T TAKE IT FOR GRANTED CAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS SOMEONE WHO WISHES THEY WERE IN YOUR POSITION. BE HUMBLE AND THANKFUL. THEN PAY IT FORWARD. ALWAYS GIVE BACK. “STARTED FORM THE BOTTOM NOW WE’RE HERE” 
11.What is NEXT for you in 2015 and beyond?

SKY IS THE LIMIT. IT WILL ALL HAVE TO DO WITH CREATING, SOME THING NEW. TWEAKING THE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN DORMANT. ALSO NEW DISCOVERIES. MUSIC, LIFE, LOVE, AND HUMANITY!!! 



12.   Choose 1: High Heel, Low Heel OR No Heel?                                     - NO HEEL
        Choose 1: Novels, Biographies, Inspirational Book OR Blog ?     - BIOGRAPHIES
        Choose 1: Fresh Fruit, Fruit Smoothie OR Fresh Fruit Juiced?   - FRESH FRUIT JUICED

13. What ONE word would best describe YOU right now?  
- CHAMELEON


Optional SideNote: In 2 sentence or less, what do you think of the YAAY YOU Blogazine? 

I THINK YAAY YOU WILL REVOLUTIONIZE THE INTERNET BLOGAZINES OF TODAY. YOU BRING A "IN YO’ FACE" YET FIERCELY WARM ENERGY THAT IS DOWN TO EARTH AND WELCOMES ALL…NO MATTER WHO. YOU BRING DIVERSITY WITH A WARM BLANKET! 

IT’S BEEN MY TOTAL PLEASURE AND YOU PIQUED MY INTERESTS AS WELL AS KEPT ME ENGAGED.  YOU MADE ME THINK YOU ARE SO MANY THINGS….THANK YOU…YAAAAAAAAAY YOU…CONGRATS.
