Blueberry Apple Butter
Hi. This is my recipe and I want to share a few tips I have learned making this recipe. When I made this in the spring and the blueberries were very sweet, 2 cups of sugar was just right for my family. When I made a batch later in the summer when the blueberries were a little tart, I found mixing tart cooking apples (Gala, Granny Smith) and some sweet apples (Honeycrisp and Fuji) to help make it naturally sweet. My advice is start with 2 cups sugar and add small amounts (1/4 cup) at a time to reach the sweetness you and your family will enjoy. I would also like to thank the kitchen staff for adding the directions on canning to my recipe.

Tex-Mex Chicken and Rice Bake
My family loves this recipe. I would suggest cooking the chicken in a frying pan. Season chicken with cumin, garlic and pepper. Also we add vegetables like green peppers, onions and tomatoes. Saute vegetables in pan that chicken was cooked.
