I should be on vacation right now.

I say this because I am super jealous that my mom and seester are visiting family in Arizona.

I mean, seriously?

I couldn’t go b/c of prior responsibilities.

Just when I think being an adult means doing what I want, when I want, how I want, that big ole’ RESPONSIBILITY comes knocking.

My goal is to take a vacay this summer when I have time.

It will happen.

Throw out some suggestions.

In other news, I’m addicted to all things banana.

Oh, and Mariah Carey radio on Pandora.

More on that tomorrow.


Let’s chat about summer things.


Super summer food.

Let’s smash two berries together.


Blackberries + Strawberries


+ Coconut Sugar + Orange Juice


That’s pretty much 4 ingredients


to make one heck of an amazing jam.


It’s pretty much summer in a jar.


Sweet, juicy, tangy


and absolutely meant to be slathered on just about anything.


Might I suggest we start with toast.


Feel free to smear some peanut butter on that toast too!

    What is coconut sugar? I have never heard about this kind of sugar. Could I use just regular sugar?
