I love the month of JULY.



I should mention… the glaze for the strawberries, I use, is simply my homemade Strawberry Jam recipe, which I most often make [fresh] with Instant ClearJel®. My adult children still rave about how amazing it is; even frozen and thawed, it’s so easy to use too.Read the rest
