Had a very busy weekend. A lot of stuff has been shipping which keeps me extra busy.

I just posted a new widget to showcase treasuries that I'm either featured in or have made. Check them out!

I have been away for WAY TOO LONG!

Things have been super busy though.

I participated in my first big craft show - Valley Merry Christmas. It was somewhat of a success. Your first one, you never know what to expect. If I do it next year I will know not to make so much!

My shop on etsy has been super busy this season. And I'm very thankful for that. I just need to find a way to keep caught up on my shipping.

If you have any suggestions for new jam ideas - let me know!

Mojito Chicken for Dinner

Last night for dinner I decided to make mojito chicken with my mojito jelly. I had 3 large chicken breasts and used a 1/2 pint of the mojito jelly - this was a little overkill but I used it all anyways. I could have easily done 5-6 chicken breasts if not more with the 1/2 pint.

I turned them a couple of times and kept them in the jelly (which was a little runny) for probably 2 hours. I then put them on a medium/high heat grill. The outside of the chicken had this nice crusty sweet taste and the inside was nice and juicy.

I served this roasted onions and brussel sprouts - also done on the grill, and a side of rice.

I of course made enough for left overs and can't wait to eat it for lunch today.

We are on the Home & Garden Showcase today. The featured item is Red Onion Marmalade ...

Check it out! http://www.etsy.com/showcase.php?showcase_id=home_and_garden_

It is great to top burgers or meatloafs. If you find another great way to cook with it, share your thoughts with us!

Made a great batch of Hot Pepper Butter tonight. The house still smells "hot" from it. I brought some to a party last night as a dipper for pigs in a blanket. It was a big hit. We also had hot ham & cheese sandwiches that I spread it on. Gave it that hot and sweet taste that it was missing.

I have been thinking about trying to make this with carmalized onions instead of peppers. Will keep you informed if I decide to try it!

Made an amazing batch of strawberry honey tonight. Check it out: http://www.etsy.com/listing/52463584/strawberry-honey

It would go great on ice cream (may have to dig into it tonight!), to mix in with your favorite homemade salad dressing or on your morning biscuit.
