I like bread and butter, I like toast and jam.

jars + blackberries + sugar + box of pectin + super easy instructions inside pectin box = mmm...

Sheena, I can't get over your work. You take such beautiful photographs! And your kids are hilarious! You catch the most priceless moments and expressions. In a lot of ways your little man and lady remind me of my own and the looks I get every day... only I don't capture them quite as well. I'll keep working on it, but really I'm starting to think that photo composition is a gift that comes natural to some (like you!), and takes a lot of work for others (like me). Thanks for sharing your beautiful gift!

Mmmm thank you so much for sharing. It's pretty much gone, the only reason it isn't totally gone is the trip. Justin was so mad that me & the kids ate almost all of it. I have never seen them down toast like that before!

Oh, please send me an invite to your old blog! Pretty please! Even though I missed the last chance?

Where do you get your berries? Do you buy them fresh, pick them, buy them frozen and then thaw, grow them in your own backyard, have them shipped to you? Please, do tell your secret. I have still not made anything but unsuccessful strawberry freezer jam. Oh, and is this freezer or processed?

Thanks Sheena!

You just put an idea in my head! Thank you in advance!

Marie: invite's in the mail:)

Last summer I got berries at the farmers market for jam, and also got to use apricots off my neighbors tree.

....since it's january and everything is frozen and dead here.....they came from Costco. But they are still really tasty!

It's freezer jam--so so so so easy! You can do it!!

lorelie said...

I'm salivating!!! When will I embrace my pioneer heritage and learn to make some myself?! Wait....the pioneers didn't HAVE freezers... I still need to learn to make it! I definitely love to consume it...
