About Me: When I was 16, I bought a cupcake cookbook. I soon became obsessed with finding the perfect cupcake recipe! I never found it, but I did find a new passion. In 2008, I thought it was about time to share that passion with the world, so I started my blog, honeyandjam.com. It’s all about my love of food, photography and the simple things in life. I also really like autumn, bluegrass and black tea lemonade.

Fruit salad always reminds me of Labor Day and picnics in the park. It’s a time of change, summer is winding down, school is about to start. This fruit salad has that same feel. It’s got some summer fruit, cherries, blueberries, and plums but also a hint at fall with the apples. I’ve used Honey Crisp here, but I think Granny Smith would work wonderfully as well!

Is there anything more comforting than a PB&J sandwich? I don’t think so. One of my most vivid memories is my mom, in the kitchen, preparing one for my lunch. These ice cream sandwiches are a cool twist on the old classic. Yummy grape jelly ice cream sandwiched between delectable peanut butter cookies. They would be a great way to cool down this summer!

Sandwiches, to me, are the perfect lunch. This one I could eat every single day. It’s filling, quick to prepare and oh so tasty. One could even call it the bees knees! It’s a grilled chicken breast, topped with a jicama & apple slaw with peanut butter dressing. The sweetness of the slaw works perfectly with the chicken. Enjoy!

Stir fry is an awesome, quick dinner. This version is one of my favorites – full of healthy veggies and served with whole wheat noodles. The peanut sauce is absolutely fiery – The Heat is On is one spicy peanut butter! If you aren’t a fan of spicy foods, try using Smooth Operator or Crunch Time instead.

Pop tarts were one of my favorite treats as a child, and are now one of my favorite things to make at home. They are so simple to throw together and make a tasty breakfast or snack! Here I use my favorite pie crust recipe, from Martha Stewart, but you could definitely substitute store bought in its place.
