    I think I would add some green chilies and some bacon!! I make mixed berry “jam” with much less sugar/berry ratio but it doesn’t set. It makes really good syrup for ice cream, pancakes and waffles, plus you can drizzle it on top of toast with peanut butter and bananas but it gets a little messy.

      Good call on the green chilies! YUM!

    Everything looks amazing!! The blackberry jam looks delicious…I love making jam with fresh fruits. The Japanese Cucumber Sesame Salad is similar to what my mother often makes, except she always adds some seaweed in it….yes, it will be wonderful with seaweed!!

      I had some of the jam on my English muffin this morning and it was delicious!

    I love blackberries! The jam looks so good, but with that much sugar I would have to stay away. I love your dinner, it looked so healthy but yet tasty.

      I’m with ya on the sugar, Tammy. My friend said there is a pectin you can buy with less sugar added but it was expensive.

    The bell pepper egg cups look wonderful. I am excited to try them. To keep them vegetarian I am planing to add some veggie sausage, fresh spinach, onion and garlic. . I love the idea of green chillies, I also think hot pepper flakes would be a great addition.

      Your additions sound yummy!

    My Grandma used to make a stuffed peppers with a rice-tomato-beef mixture. Don’t really remember what was in it, but it was really good. Yours looks really good too!

    oooh I would add some parsley or fresh chives to the egg dish!

    Blackberry Jam looks delish. I think you could adjust the sugar to suit your taste, and still have a wonderful fruit taste.
    I would add minced sweet onion, such as Vidalia Onion or Mississippi Sweet, to give the eggs a more interesting flavor. I also use fresh sweet basil in my omelets. I sautee my veggies and spices first.

      Great idea on the onions. I will definitely try that.
