This week in my Kitchen

Yesterday was my youngest son's birthday. I made a cheesecake ( a baked one, his favourite, as opposed to an unbaked one, which my DH prefers).  I didn't put much cherry pie filling on the cake because there are those who don't like it. ( really? It's so good!) 

                The birthday boy.... well, I guess I should say the birthday man.

         Rhubarb Orange Marmalade with raisins. One of our favourite toast toppings!!

            The fruit I got  this afternoon... aren't those pears big?  I hope they'll be as tasty as the last ones we bought. Pears can be strange that way.

Cinnamon buns straight from the oven ( in fact the second pan is baking at this very moment. )
Did you notice the toothpick in one?  That's to mark the end that has cinnamon buns with no raisins. The grands prefer those. The rest of us love LOTS of raisins!!

It's been a cool  and cloudy day here. Perfect for baking.

What did you do today?

Thanks for visiting.    Granny M.


  1. Mmmm... I love cheesecake, with cherries! I know what you mean about pears. Sometimes you bite into one and the juice runs down your arm and the next one has no juice! I did some cooking and baking today too... it was that kind of a day... cold and snowy. Have a great week!

  2. Well, I played my piano, went to church and pinned a pillowcase together and took a nap!! A long one! That picture of your fruit looks beautiful! My husband loves cheesecake but me not so much! Nancy

  3. Mmm, your baking looks delicious. I'm in the 'lots of raisins' camp.
    Well as usual we were at the White Rock farmers market. Then after, a visit with my slowly failing mum, and then supper out with a friend whose mother isn't doing so well either.

  4. Cheesecake! A girl after my own of my absolute faves...although I must say the cinnamon buns look rather yummy
    I spent the day making last minute preparations for my daughters visit from the UK tomorrow...Im so excited...its been too long
    Wonderful photos
    Have a great week

  5. Your kitchen must be as wonderful as my sister's kitchen,which I just posted about. You have a handsome son! That cheesecake looks simply delicious! My daughter makes the baked cheesecakes. I like them best. Oh those cinnamon buns!!!

  6. Your cake and buns look delicious! We have been having some great pears lately. Hope yours were good.
    Have a great week!

  7. The cheesecake looks perfect, GM! I love those canned cherries, too.

  8. Happy birthday, youngest son! I've been at work all day, and am looking forward to goofing off this evening. :) Wonderful baked goods!

  9. Well I am real hungry now! I have never made a baked cheesecake only the unbaked one! Happy Birthday to your boy! :)
