I'm calling this one of our best guides ever. These jams have been incredible and I've spent hardly any time on mine. No pectin, no canning, just a quick jam to store in the fridge for the week. And don't worry about it going bad — it does not last that long.

This jelly smelled amazing while it cooked, thanks in particular to the brown sugar, cloves and fresh ginger. But this really wasn't nearly as sweet as it sounds. In fact, I'd say it was 100 percent savory, just like that guide title says.

Blueberry breakfast pastry with citrus glaze

Mom made a version of this pastry for a brunch she hosted during one of my recent trips home, and I couldn’t stop eating it. She’s made it several times over the years and first got the recipe from a friend, Mrs. Chadwick, a mother of eight who was always having people over and often employed quick, easy recipes. The original recipe includes Bisquick, but I subbed in flour, baking powder and salt instead.
