Yummy Cherry Coffee Cake

Yesterday was a fun day...Katie had spent Sunday night with me and we spent yesterday hanging out... talking, cleaning, and cooking. My entire family was able to come that evening, and for dinner we had stuffed shells, (large pasta shells filled with a ricotta cheese mixture and topped with spaghetti sauce) green salad, and french bread. For dessert we made a super-easy cherry coffee cake recipe from my latest Taste of Home magazine. Unfortunately, we didn't take a picture, but I'll give the recipe anyway!
