Sunday, normally a quiet day in my home. Until, the family decides to get together and play circus fun. Lets see who can balance on my feet, my daughter says. Of course, I accepted this challenge and the balancing act commenced.
I thought I did pretty well. Then it was my son who was volunteered.
Sunday’s can be fun but only when we are all together. Sunday, Sunday, you can trust that day!
If your like me you most likely have been putting off replacing the outlet because it does involve electrical wiring, and unless your an electrician, a do it yourself change is not suggested. But did you know there is an easy way to give those old, paint stained, eye hurting, wall plugs a face lift? No electrician or handyman needed.
All you need is a 1-gang duplex cover wall plate. This plate covers the outside of the outlet and the face of the outlet. A total face lift without the face lift cost.
Simple remove the existing border plate, and replace with the new cover plate.
Ugly outlet no more. To make it new you just cover the old.
A new clean look with one plate and one screw.
Heading to Home Depot to buy some more cover plates. There will be no more ugly wall outlets in my home. No, not anymore!
Dripo is a travel cold brew system that can be used at home, the office, even at the beach. In one section you put ice and water, in the middle your ground coffee and a filter. The water drips through the coffee layer into a tumbler at the bottom and in about two hours a cup of cold brew is ready.

Included inside, are fool proof recipes for jams, jellies, pickles & more.

If another recipe would be of interest, I also am able to share recipes for blueberry butter, bread & butter pickles, corn & cherry tomato salsa, guava-vanilla bean jelly, meyer lemon marmalade and more.
Place the berries in an 8-quart stainless-steel or enameled Dutch oven. Gradually stir in the pectin. Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down, over high, stirring constantly.
Add the sugar, stirring to dissolve. Return the mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim the foam, if necessary.
Ladle the hot jam into a hot jar, leaving 1⁄4-inch headspace. Wipe the jar rim. Center the lid on the jar. Apply the band, and adjust to fingertip-tight. Place the jar in the boiling water canner. Repeat until all the jars are filled.
Process the jars 10 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Turn off heat; remove the lid, and let the jars stand 5 minutes. Remove the jars and cool.
Change It Up
Instead of a mix of berries, you can chose to use just one. This recipe works well with just raspberries or blackberries.
Add 2⁄3 cup unsweetened fruit juice or water to the berries, substituting 3 tablespoons Ball® Low or No-Sugar Needed Pectin for the Classic Pectin. Reduce the sugar to 1 cup. This jam will have a looser set than the full-sugar version, but just as much fresh fruit flavor.
