Cranberry Bourbon Meatballs

Growing up my mom always used to make bourbon meatballs around the holidays which we would devour on little tooth picks feeling oh so fancy.

Sparkling Jam Royale

What are the holidays without a little sparkle? This delightful twist on a Kir Royale is made even more fabulous by mixing gin with some high quality preserves and topping it off with your favorite champagne or Prosecco.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

I know that lately everyone has been obsessed with the Broccoli Cheddar Soup from Panera Bread, but I can assure you that once you make this recipe at home you will never go back.

The Best Classic Spaghetti and Meatballs

Spaghetti and meatballs were without a doubt one of my late Papa Andy’s favorite meals of all time. Although he grew up in New Jersey the son of Slovakian immigrants, the Italian immigrant neighborhood was but a stone’s throw away and he grew up eating and loving the food so much he considered himself an […]

Breakfast-time Old Fashioned

Now I have to be upfront in saying that this is not a Jam Jar Kitchen original recipe.

Now I love a tradition butternut squash soup with apple and sage and all of that scrumptiousness. But sometimes I want something a little difference and this curried take on a classic really hits the spot. This recipe utilizes curry powder, garam marsala and ginger to really elevate the humble squash and takes it to […]

I of course said YES and was thrilled to receive a box with some fantastic items ranging from gluten free parmesan croutons to a fabulous avocado and […]

Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls

My British husband has lived in the States nearly 5 years now and by and large he is a pretty big fan of the food here. But one of the things he will never understand about the American cuisine is its complete lack of sausage rolls. And by sausage rolls he is of course referring […]
