Wow, that is a lot of sour cherries! I would make jam, of course.
Was in our nation's capital on Canada Day (where is was pouring rain). But I did make some strawberry scones for my mother the day before. It used frozen butter that you grate into the flour.. pretty good!

They look great to me.. and if they taste good, that's what really matters!
Visting my mother, and I am making ginger rhubarb buckle this afternoon, as a family friend is coming for dinner.

I love buttertarts, but have always been afraid to make them for some reason!

Yes! I think that I visited it about 10 or 15 years ago.. and I am sure that I ready about it the shop as well on David Lebovitz's site..

I hate to mention it, but there are a few good used bookstores close to where you will be in Toronto!

Hate those days, when you fall so close to the finish line!

Bloor and Borden is a good one: I went to it a few years ago when we were on strike and I was walking everywhere..

My grandmother always made me that cake when I was a kid: my absolute favourite!

There are quite a few farmers markets in Toronto. I go to the one at Nathan Phillips Square because it's close to my office.

Yes.. I had to eat a lot of the crumbs that fell off when I was slicing. Tough job but someone has to do it..

Rhubarb big crumb cake (from NYT via Smitten Kitchen) to take in to the office.. always good!

I made blueberry rhubarb maple and strawberry vanilla jam this week-end, and will bottle a batch of strawberry champagne tonight. I will be gone the next 2 week-ends, so bought a flat of strawberries to jam while they are their peak..

Ha ha.. good name! Enjoy your new companion. I am cat-sitting for a few weeks, and forgot how much joy (and mess..) they can bring to your life.

I decided to make some dulce de leche blondies: am going home later this week for a visit, so wanted to make something for my brother.. new recipe to me, hope it works out.

wow.. sour cherries already? I bought a flat of strawberries this week-end to make some jam.. have already made 2 batches. Can't wait for the cherries!

What are you baking these days? Sumer is icumen in, June 2015 edition! [Old]

I have that one.. will have to check it out! I agree that the ones that Buttertart described sound very good... in any case, sounds like whatever you made was very popular!

That sounds better to me (sans walnuts, of course..)

Yes.. it could have been very dangerous.
