Today I decided to be adventurous and make homemade jam. Growing up, I cannot remember one time when we had store bought jam and I am determined to have it be that way for my family! I absolutely love my Mom's homemade jam, and I wanted to try my hand at making my own.
First though, let me just tell you a few of my new found favorite things- BOSCH. If you don't have one, get one. Holy smokes, they are amazing. Yeah, they're not as stylish as KithchenAid's, but they are an amazing little machine.
I love listening to Pride and Prejudice when I bake. I don't know why, I just do! It's my favorite by far.

Second, Rubbermaid stackable tupperware. If you have ever seen the commercials for it, it really is as amazing as it looks. I got two sets of 24 (12 containers, 12 lids) and they have been so handy. All the lids snap together, or you can snap corresponding lids to the bottoms of the containers. So, they stack up quite nicely. Anyhow, those are my two favorites of the day today. :)
Oh, and the jam turned out fabulously. I took a little taste and it tasted JUST like my moms. That made me very happy. Very happy indeed.
And for all of you who have Facebook accounts, I have wedding pictures posted! Enjoy! More to come too :)
