About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

My First Attempt at Making Blueberry Jam

I've never attempted to make any jam or jelly other than strawberry.  I'm not really sure why unless it's because strawberry is my favorite and I just never took the time to try any other fruits.  Today I made blueberry jam and it turned out perfectly!  I used the same recipe as my strawberry jelly but used 4 cups of crushed blueberries and 4 cups of sugar.

One of my jars of Blueberry Jam!  Yay for success!

  1. Love homemade jam. Nothing better. I think my favorite recipe so far has been Peach with fresh picked Georgia peaches. I guess you figured out what it took me a while to get, once you can make jam, really it's no different for any other flavor. Duh, not sure why I didn't get that sooner!!
