Wallsberry Farm Marionberry Perserves

Wallsberry Farm Marionberry Perserves. I found this delicious jam at Costco. And best of all, it's free of corn sweeteners, which is something I had been looking for in my jam.

Apples - Project 52 Week 6

We've had a couple days of beautiful sun and that sunset light is amazing! So even though I didn't have anything fun (read: sweet) to take a picture of, I used what I had. An apple. This is my favorite way to slice an apple.

Superbowl Party 2011 - Project 52

I'm including this for my food project because our SuperBowl Party has lots of food at it. My favorite food shot is the top left one of the quesadilla - seriously the best I've ever had (and I didn't make them). Now I'm off to try to recreate them.

I used a new program to make this mosaic - pretty easy. Here's the link to Big Huge Labs.
