Super Simple Mixed Berry Chia Jam

My yard is full of wee, seedy black berries, so I gathered up a bunch to make a healthy, low cal, jam

3 oz. Wild #Blackberries
3 oz. Blueberries
3 oz. Strawberries
1 Tbsp. Lakanto
2 Tbsp. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Chia

Combine berries and sweeteners in small saucepan. Cook on medium low until soft. Blend until smoother (I use an electric hand blender). Cook until reduces to coat spoon. Can be a little runny.Remove from heat, mix in chia. Store in sterilized jar, refrigerated, for up to a month.

Wild Berry Corn Bread Pudding

It's been a rainy, cold summer here in NEPA, and the blackberries in our woods are just starting to ripen.  Between my Dad's yard and mine I was able to rally up a cup and a half, but the seedy-though-tasty little beasts needed to find a home.

I also have a ridiculous amount of corn bread. Seriously. There's a reason for that. I eat low cal and low carbish, and I have 28 days worth of corn bread muffins because I got some less-than-stellar cow corn in a big ol' bag and refused to waste it.

Obviously, it's bread pudding time.

Bread pudding isn't everyone's jam. After all, it's basically smushy-bread custard. But I find it's a great way to use up leftover bread and muffins, and make an easy weekend breakfast, with leftovers for the week that I can just reheat in my toaster oven while I get ready for work.

Cow Corn Muffins

Cow corn.  What is it, you might ask? Well, it's corn that, upon cooking, one finds out is only fit for the cows. It's a variety of chewiness to bland depending on the issue, but it's all pretty much inedible.

I have found myself in possession of 60 oz. of cow corn through an act of folly. With corn, remember, you always get what you paid for, and cheap corn is probably cow corn.  So, I thought, I'll play with some recipes, and see what I can do.

I pureed all 60 oz. of kernels, and starred at it. Corn bread it was.

Sadly, I have no picture to show you on this one. I gobbled up half of it, then set about destroying it to make other things. But these sweet, golden, moist cakes looked like one would expect.

Spicy Summer "Chicken" Bowl

Sometimes I only post things to Instagram and Facebook. I plan to start screen shooting them to share here. They tend to be easier recipes and other things I don't think a full write up is necessary for.
