Tuna Casserole Make-Over: A lighter take on a classic recipe

Sometimes, when life throws a curve ball, I love to dive into my favorite comfort foods. Tuna Casserole is one of my favorites. However, the traditional recipe calls for condensed soup, which can be very high in sodium or added artificial ingredients.

I created this version, which doesn’t rely on a can soup. Don’t worry though! It’s still almost as easy and has much more flavor. It’s a revised comfort food from my childhood that I’ll be making again and again.

Blueberry Jam and Country Childhood Memories

Have you heard the Miranda Lambert song – The House that Built Me? That song resonated with me the first time I heard it. This month, I had to say goodbye to the house that built me – and I can never go back. While it’s a bittersweet farewell, I know it’s the best thing for my grandmother and our family. Things are changing, as they always do.

Like the song says, though, I do still have my memories. My favorite country girl memories include eating fresh ripe blueberries right off the bush, watching the fireflies. and cooking with my grandmother. She used to love to make blueberry jam.

This isn’t her recipe, though. It’s mine. I modified it to use very little added sugar. It also doesn’t use any pectin. Lemon brightens the jam, and hints of vanilla add an unexpected depth.

It’s not exactly the same, but like I said, things change.
