What's happening in my Kitchen


 Our snow is melting and we even had some sunshine earlier.  I've been busy baking and making jam.
It makes the kitchen so cozy.

I made this lemon loaf for the weekend  when we had extended family over for tea. Actually I made 2 and this is all that's left. The recipe came from a site called A Pretty Life and was simply called an easy lemon loaf. She has a number of recipes that I mean to try one day.

 Impossible Pumpkin pie is a great favourite of my DH.

 We were out of jam for our morning toast so today I made Strawberry Jam and a few jars of Orange and Lemon Marmalade.  That should do for a while  The strawberries were from the freezer.

 Since I still am unable to comment on several of your blogs ( it's so frustrating) I'll just post a couple of comments here.

Happy@Home...I love the deals you found at the thrift store. The nativity set that came from Bethlehem is a wonderful find and the Easter decor "eggs" are so sweet. 

Linda (Reeder)  I wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you as you prepare for your surgery next week. Wish you  the best results!!

Diane in northern Wis.  ...I'm so glad you found the Gladys Tabor book and enjoyed it. Thank you so much for your offer of sending it to me. That's super sweet ( but I already have that one). 

Thank you for visiting and leaving lovely comments. I appreciate each one.

I'll leave you with this little gem....  It made me smile, hope you like it.   GM


  1. Imagine, I made yesterday a lemon cake for my family!

    The jam has excellent colors! I can imagine how fine they are!

    Yes, this kind of work make our kitchen cozy!

    We expect again cold weather. here in the Bavarian forest.

    I always enjoy your comments. Sorry, that Blogger seems to have problems!!

  2. Everything you make looks so delicious! You seem to come up with wonderful things so quickly! Hope your family appreciates all that you do! I know you appreciate all that they do for you!

  3. Even a little sunshine is such a boon! I bet your family all get a happy feeling when you start working in the kitchen, even before the good smells start to emanate from there. :-)


  4. I'm grapefruit too, unless auto-correct makes it worse!!! :-)
    Your making looks SO good. I made a coffee cake a couple of days ago and we finished it off pretty fast. I don't bake often because I REALLY need to lose weight and I love sweets too much.
    We're having very, very nice weather right now but it's supposed to turn colder next week. I need to enjoy this while it's here.
    Have a lovely Friday my dear friend.
    Blessings and hugs,

  5. Auto correct can be funny. That lemon bread looks good (even better without the icing for me)

  6. Auto correct!! Very odd.Your cakes look yummy.

  7. I think you can’t come on my blog too?
    Your lemon loaves look very good so are the jams. Hope you have a nice weekend.

  8. Oh, that auto-correct! You have to laugh sometimes at what it comes up with, and this grapefruit one is priceless :)
    Your jams and loaf look delicious - and what a great way to make your home feel cozy and warm! Mxx

  9. That lemon loaf looks so good . . . the perfect thing to bring out when friends drop by. I'm going to go see if I can find that site and that recipe. Thanks :)

  10. The lemon loaf look's so good! Always so nice visiting your blog :)
    Love from Titti

  11. It looks like your kitchen is the place to be. So many tasty looking treats. I am going to look for that lemon loaf. May have to make it with my last lemon. I remember making a few different impossible pies, although I have never seen a recipe for pumpkin. I'll bet that is yummy.
    I'm sorry that you are still unable to comment over here. Frustrating! I am glad, however, that you are still visiting. Have a wonderful weekend.

  12. The food you have made looks so good! I can imagine the wonderful smell in your kitchen :)

  13. I certainly remember those whisks! They used to work well.

    Your lemon loaf does look nice.
    Wishing you a happy month of March.

    All the best Jan

  14. Delicious looking lemon loaves! Had to laugh at autocorrect!
