First of all, I wanted to tell our Utah readers that we will be sharing a recipe on KUTV channel 2 Fresh Living show at noon on Wednesday! We are excited and a little nervous! I am so happy to be going to Utah this week for BYU Women’s Conference and to visit my family and friends! I can’t wait:) I have been so busy getting my family all set to be Mom-less for a few days. I tell you it is a lot of work to leave 5 boys:)
Now for the winner of last weeks giveaway of volume #2 is…

“I love making dinner for my family. It has always been a way that I express my love for them. But, with three little ones and another one on the way I am always on the hunt for ways to make it easier for me and more memorable for us all.
Thank so much for your blog. I use it often and it alone makes my life easier!!”

Now for the delicious Bleuberry Syrup pictured above. Mmmm this was so yummy! The only note for this recipe that I would add is…you could adjust the sugar depending upon how sweet or tart your blueberries are. I used some wild blueberries that were very sweet and I think I should have cut down the sugar a little. Although I have to say my boys loved it sweet! We served it on homemade waffles with whipped cream and strawberries. Oh yeah!!
