Blog Jam Copic Give-away

Β jam1-lcraig-102108.jpg

Several weeks ago, Sharon mentioned that she was going to make her fabulous Pineapple Jam. I got to thinking about the raspberries that were wasting away on the vines and the peppers still in my garden. So that afternoon, I went out and picked my berries and peppers for Raspberry Pepper Jam and made it that night.Β  Here is the recipe that I used, and I just added 6 diced jalapeno peppers (seeds removed) to the cooking mixture. Now most folks would like this jam over a brick of cream cheese, and I’ll admit, that’s pretty good. But here’s my very favorite thing to do with Raspberry Jam (homemade or store-bought, with or without the peppers):


I don’t know what you want to call this cracker spread, and I admit it doesn’t sound very appetizing but we call it G*O*O*D. It’s my favorite thing to take to a social event when I’m ‘in a jam‘ and need something quick. Generally, I have everything on hand, and it is so very tasty.

Cracker SpreadΒ 

  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 green onions sliced
  • 2 Tbls. Hellman’s Mayo (I would never recommend Miracle Whip ;), but especially not in this recipe. The sharp cheddar just begs to be paired with the distinct Hellman’s flavor.)
  • 4 Tbls. Raspberry Jam

Mix cheddar cheese, green onions and mayo in a bowl and stir. Spread onto serving dish. Cover with layer of raspberry jam, being careful not to mix the 2 layers. I usually take the jam with me and add it just before serving. Β  Serve with your favorite cracker.

Something about this mixture of sweet & salty & sharp cheddar. It is *so* good. πŸ™‚


I found this stretchy ribbon at Archiver’s a few weeks ago. It was easy to single knot and secure with a pin. The lid topper was stamped with Flora Backgrounder from CHF, in Lady Bug Red Momento ink from Tsukineko. Then, I squished the lid topper into my new VersaMark Dazzle pad – coating the floral image with Champagne flavor,Β  I mean, sparkle.Β  The coating of the VersaMark gives the stamped topper a little gold flecked sparkle and a shiny coating. It reminds me of a piece of old oil cloth that my grandma might have used for a table covering. Love the ingenuity of Tsukineko to add shimmer and frost to their essential VersaMark pad. You can purchase these new pads from Ellen Hutson. Thanks, Tsukineko!


Well, my post is getting long, but I’m sure you don’t want me to end it without telling you how to enter for my Copic Marker give away. It’s simple. Leave me a comment (one per person) between now and Thursday night at 10:00 p.m. central, and I’ll draw for a winner.Β  Just like Sharon, I’ll post my Copic Marker give-away winner on Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. central.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll see you tomorrow!

  32. OMG, Lori…raspberry jam is my favorite and I love pepper jelly over cream cheese. I can’t wait to try your recipe. It sounds yummy. Love the ribbon and Versa-Mark with sparkles just blows my mind. I would love to get a jar of this for the holidays. Guess I will make like Mrs. Santa and make a few jars up. We are finishing up the last of the jam we got from friends in Michigan. And wow, blog candy too!

  33. Hi Lori!
    Yes, I did travel here from Sharon’s blog…and I like what I see πŸ™‚
    Thanks for sharing that unusual recipe. I say unusual because I don’t know about putting peppers in jam.
    Thank you for offering a chance to win COPICS!

  34. Suzanne W. Skeels

    Dear Lori,
    Putting all “razzing” aside, you have “peppered” me with great ideas, they are “jelling” within me. Hoping to “spice” up my life with the copic candy and make my “mark” on the coloring world.
    Thanks for the fun. Suz

  35. This turned out so pretty, Lori, and very yummy looking, too! I think you just might need to bring a jar of this to Texas some time! πŸ˜‰ The spread sounds wonderful!

  44. Love the two recipes, never would have thought to pair those two but I’ll have to give it a whirl. Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

  45. I love how you decorated your jars and your jam sounds out of this world. It’s something my family and I would enjoy — the cracker spread, too. What a great idea! … and to have a chance to win Copic Markers! Thanks! Today’s blog couldn’t have been better.

  46. Lori,

  53. Your recipe sounds very yummy! TFS

  54. The Raspberry Pepper jelly sounds awesome! I still have to make my Red Pepper jelly so looking at yours and Sharon’s is inspiring me to get busy. Thanks for a chance to win some Copics…my favourite!!

  55. Just discovered your site (thanks to Sharon). Will have to peek around. The jar looks amazing and the spread sounds good!

    Crossing my fingers and toes – I’d so love to be able to experiment with the markers before buying.

  58. Carolyn Sharkas

    That really looks good. I usually serve my pepper jelly with cream cheese. It is yummy. I have never made my own, however. I might like to try to make some. It is hard to find pepper jelly here in Florida unless it is winter. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  60. I love the jam idea – how fun. I’m going to try this with my daughter!!! yahoo.

  62. The jam sounds very yummy. I’d love to win it, but I’ll take the copics instead lol. Thanks for the wonderful blog candy.

    D in FL

  63. The jam looks great! and I don’t have any Copics yet, so this would be wonderful to give them a try. πŸ™‚

  64. Your recipe is sounds yummy! I made blackberry jam for the first time this year. Have never tried Copics so this would be a great way to test them out.

  65. Wow another chance to win. It would be great to win!


  66. Hi Lori,
    I love the mix of sweet and salty, too. I bet your dip is a party favorite. Thanks for sharing the Copic bounty..another thing I love!

  67. Your raspberry jan cheese spread sounds wonderful. I can hardly wait to try it.

  68. The jam sounds tasty but I have to admit I never would have thought to pair it with those ingredients for a cracker spread. I might have to give that a shot someday – with store-bought jam, of course. I’m not much of a jam/jelly maker.

  69. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I’m going to have to wait till next year to make it since raspberry season is over here in Ontario. Thanks for the chance to win the copic goodies.

  70. Yum my mouth was watering reading your post, I will have to try this, thank you. I love the idea of giving a homemade gift and you did a wonderful job. TFS

  71. Your raspberry recipes sound absolutely delicious. Got to try them. And your jar topper is as cute as can be.

  72. Yum… that recipe sounds so good! Love your blog and thanks for the opportunity to win some copics. I would love to try them! πŸ™‚

  73. I just left a comment on Sharon’s blog about making pepper jelly and raspberry jam, but I neveer thought of combining the two! I have to give this a try! My friends will love it, especially when I try the cracker spread. I usually put the pepper jelly on cream cheese, so this will be something different. Thanks for the chance to win.

  74. That jar is so pretty. I love the red and white. The cracker spread does sound like an interesting combination. I will have to try it. I love things that are sweet and salty. I don’t have any Copics and would love to try them. Thanks for the opportunity.

  75. I haven’t made jams for many years now (although we did make apple butter this year…for the first time).

    Don’t have any Copic markers yet, so it would be great to have some to play with.

  76. Oh yes! That is a must do … I’m just drooling thinking about putting your fabulous recipe over some nice warm brie.

  77. Interesting cracker spread idea! I haven’t tried the Copic markers. Hope I win!

    I always enjoy reading your blog!

  78. Oh my, that sounds so yummy!! I’m going to have to make that very soon.

    I would love to give these Copics a loving home – I’m sure they’d be very happy at my house. Thx for the opportunity to win.

  79. Darlene Gabriel

    Your jam and cracker spread sound delicious. I love that stretchy ribbon you used on the jar lid. I enjoy reading your blog and especially when you share your heart with us. Thank you for the chance to win these copics.

  80. I just made some apple butter but your recipe sounds wonderful. The jars you shared are so pretty. Those copics would be a GREAT addition to my crafting tools!

  81. I am going to have to try your “In a Jam” recipe! It sounds so yummy. I also wouldn’t mind winning a Copic marker blog candy. Thanks for the chance!

  82. That is an interesting way to serve jam! I’d love to taste it. I’d also love to try a copic pen.

  83. Oh, your jam sounds yummy! Since I am extremely “challenged” in the kitchen, I will leave your recipe here for others to enjoy – believe me – it’s best that way … lol!! On the other hand, I think I could certainly put the copics to good use. I’ve never tried them but have seen so many beautiful projects done with them!

  84. That jam sounds delish! And the jar is adorable. Thanks for the idea!

  85. This looks delish!! I was at the KC Copic class and saw you! I was sitting next to MistiStamps4fun–>ha. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  86. WOW! All of this jam stuff is making me hungry. Sounding really good.

  87. Yum, yum! This recipe looks/sounds delish! The COPICs sound really good too! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance to win some!

  88. Thanks for the recipe and the chance to win!

  89. Wow! You and Sharon are making me hungry for toast and jam! Thanks!

  90. Oh boy do I hate myself now for missing out on jamming this summer. Frost & ice have hit Southern Oregon already so no more berries.

    Thanks for the wonderful design idea for jam gifts. Maybe I can get the labels off someone elses and just pretty up the jar:) O alright I’ll be good.

    Thanks too for the blog jam and an interesting recipe not to mention reminding us to remove the seeds from the peppers! Hugs and blessings – Jean

  98. All this talk about food is making me hungry. I love the jar topper… too cute. Thanks for the chance to win.

  99. Your spreads sounds like it would go well on a turkey sandwich.hmmmmmm….. but I digress. Winning your blog candy would give me a good chance to decide what kind of markers I want to purchase. Thanks for the opportunity!

  106. Lavonne (tweetygirl)

    hi Lori,
    this is the first time I’ve left a comment for someone on their blog. At least I think it is! I found you last week. Have to admit I’m very impressed by everything I’ve seen. Joined in the BVC08 this week.
    Thanks for the opportunity to possibly win the copic markers. They sound very neat.
    By the way, your jam looks really yummy too!

  107. OMgoodness! Your recipe sounds sooooo yummy! I am definitely putting it in my files to make for holiday goodies. Thanks so much for the chance to win some uber-cool Copics too!

  108. Beautiful presentation of your yummy goodness! I do something similar with strawberry and can’t wait to try the raspberry! Now, does the jam come with the markers in the candy? ; )

  109. Oh that’s sounds yummy! And thanks for the chance at those Copic markers.

  110. Sharon Ferreira

    Oh by gummy that all sounds yummy. Thanks also for a chance to win those Copic markers. Lots of blessings from Sharon

  117. CherylQuilts at SCS

    Oh my, sounds divine! You and Sharon are wonderful to share these great recipes and the wonderful ways of displaying them. I would love to try some Copics! πŸ™‚

  118. I’ve never in my life owned or used a Copic. And it looks like I’m not the only one. Thanks for the chance, Lori!

  119. I love raspberry jam , paired with the peppers sounds interesting , will have to try it sometime . Thanks for a chance to win some Copics !

  120. That sounds absolutely delish!!!! That is definately going on my list of recipes to try VERY soon! Thanks for the chance to win some Copics!!!

  121. I love your jar. Very pretty presentation.
    Thanks for the chance to win some Copics! I have exactly one Copic marker and it’s very lonely!

  122. Can’t wait to use your recipe at our family’s next get together. We have a tradition of watching Buckeye football together each Saturday of the season, so I’ll have an opportunity this week. I’ve never tried Copics but my stamping buddy, Crystal, and I are getting mighty itchy to give them a chance. I go to the art supply store and tell myself & my daughter, “Don’t look to the left or the right. We’re here for *specific product* only.” πŸ™‚

  123. Thanks for these great recipes! I will have to try thses when my Paper Princesses vist. they love new recipes. Thanks for the chance to win Copics!!

  124. This sounds like a good recipe to try out with the upcoming holidays.Thanks for sharing.
    Die Cut Lady

  125. Yummy! My mouth is watering from your recipes! Thanks for sharing and thanks for the chance at some fun Copics!! :o)

  126. Just by looking at your jam in the jar, and then reading the ingredients has made my mouth water. I will be trying this recipe for sure. Thanks for sharing the recipe. The blog candy also looks rather yummmy!!!

  127. yum…. I love jam, and the jars are very pretty. I have never made jam, although funny enough always meant to. Maybe I will soon. Thanks for the opportunity to win these copics. I don’t have any and would love to play with them.

  128. The jam and spread look good. I copied the recipe to try. We made elderberry jam this year. It is so good. You have to keep your eyes out during the Summer to see where the elderberry bushs are blooming (in the ditches) so you know where to go back in the Fall to find the berries. They are tiny and a lot of work to clean…but make the most delicious jam. It is like having a taste of Summer in the Winter.

  129. delish!!! I will have to try your recipe, as we are huge fans of pepper jellies here!

    another tip for the jalapenos (or whichever pepper you choose) – wear gloves when working with hot peppers!!! especially if you have contact lenses. ask me how I know that those oils don’t come off of the fingers with regular hand washing! πŸ˜‰

  130. wow…your jam looks delicious!! i have never tried copics so this would be a perfect candy for me to win! thank you for the opportunity!

  131. Wow. What an interesting recipe! I will have to try it. Thanks for the chance at winning the markers!

  132. What a great idea! If I ever garden someday, I’ll be a canner like my granny!
    That’s definitely an interesting recipe. Maybe someday I’ll be brave enough to try it. LOL

  133. Lori Lori Lori….that is one enticing looking jar and plate of yumminess πŸ™‚ When you said you added peppers to the jam I was thinking, really???…but paired with cheese and crackers…yep I can totally see it!

    Have a great day girl!

  134. What a wonderful idea for gifting! It’s so beautifully decorated, too.

    I’d love to win the Copics, I’ve been dying to try them! Thanks for the chance.

  135. Kerry Fitzpatrick

    Is your Jam spicy or hot? I’ve never had it with peppers added. It did look yummy, though. Would love to have the copic markers….but who wouldn’t.

  136. that spread sounds awesome. I would love to try the copics, too!

  137. I never thought of layering with a mayo spread, but it sounds realy yummy. We love pepper jellys so we will have to try the recipe.


  138. What an interesting combination for a recipe. I like different combinations of flavors so I might just have to give this one a try.

  139. Thank you so very much for the wonderful recipes as well as the chance to win this wonderful blog candy. Have a great day.

    Debbie/Phx AZ

  140. OHHHH… how absolutely tempting ! And presented so nicely too . Love reading your blog and seeing such a variety. And thank you for the opportunity to win some Copics … don’t have a one … just yet !

  141. Your jam and spread sound really good!! So do the copic markers. I don’t have many and would love the chance to win some. Thank you.

  142. Gosh. That recipe sounds delish! I love savory and sweet together. I’ll have to give it a try, though without the homemade jam. I envy you your raspberry bushes.

    Copic markers are a lot less calorie-laden than jam and dips, so would be much better for me! πŸ˜€

  143. Oh Man!!! I don’t have those colors yet either!!! Wouldn’t that be perfect! I have to say…I’ve never been one to understand blending peppers with jam. I know a lot of people that LOVE it though. Maybe I just need to try it, and them MAYBE I’ll like it! My mom always used to make fresh strawberry freezer jam! It was so good you could just eat it with a spoon! Thanks Lori!

  144. WOW. You have a lot of comments. I’d love to have a few more Copics. I started buying them one at a time at HOBBY LOBBY with a coupon… I know pathetic. Then we moved and I am not near a HL. So sad.
    I’d like that jam though too! Looks YUMMY!

  145. Thanks for the recipe and the chance to win! I love recipes that pair things that you would never think of putting together. Great blog!

  146. Love your blog. Thanks for all the ideas and now recipes!! Not a copic owner yet. You could make me one though!!

  147. The cheese spread does sound G*O*O*D! I’ll have to try it! So inspired by your blog – thanks for all you share!

  148. Marian Berggren

    Your recipe sounds interesting.
    Thanks for the chance to win some Copics. Would love to
    try them after reading everyone’s comments about them.

  149. Oooh your cheese spread sounds interesting. I wonder if it would work with regular raspberry jam?

    Thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

  150. Your cracker spread sounds so yummy. I’ll definitely be making this for our next family get together. Thanks for the chance to win some Copics.

  151. yummy! thanks for sharing!

  152. Agustina G. Ortega

    Thanks for the chance to win and the cheese spread is making me hungry MMMMM MMMMM gooooood.

  156. Oh, you are braver than me! I have never made jam. It sounds yummie. Thanks for the Copic giveaway too. What a great prize!

  157. oh that sounds so good and loved the chance at some copics…

  158. It sounds so good and I would love to win some copics!

  159. I can’t wait to try your cracker spread recipe, after I make some of the Raspberry Pepper Jam first! Thanks for the chance to win the Copic Markers; what a treat! Linda

  160. Oh my gosh – your recipes for jam and the cracker spread sound wonderful! I’m so happy to have found the link to your blog from Sharon’s. You both do beautiful work – thanks for sharing your talent with all of us. Thanks for offering the blog jam of Copic Markers – I love the vibrant colors they produce.

  161. ok between you and Sharon – I want to make my own jam now! πŸ™‚ your recipe sounds delicious too!!

  162. Love your blog. Thanks for the chance to win.

  163. oh, I bet that jam is yummy! Lovely projects–thanks!

  164. Hi Lori,
    It was so much fun spending some time with you in Kansas City! Wish we’d have had lots more time πŸ™‚

    Your jam sounds out of this world! I love pepper jellys and use them frequently to baste a pork roast with – or add into a homemade salad dressing (pepper jelly, sesame seed oil, rice vinegar and a dash of sugar or honey – and whisk ’em all together). Right now, as the weather turns cooler, I’m thinking of spreading your Raspberry Pepper jam on a sliced turkey sandwich – leftover from Thanksgiving. Yummmmmm-o!

  165. PS – Thanks for using the Lady Bug Memento (great color, eh?) .. and topping it with the VersaMark Dazzle. You’re such a clever lady!!

    VersaMark Dazzle is hard to photograph – but leaves a nice little slice of elegance to paper crafting projects. I can’t decide which I like better, the Frost (like VersaMark Snow!) or Champagne (with a little bit of sparkle!). They’re both PERFECT for making snowflakes, snowmen, and adding some sheer elegance for the holidays. Thanks again! Susan

  166. Wow…beautiful jar of jelly… would love to have a taste! I haven’t used the copic markers yet so maybe I will win! I found your site from one of your postings on Splitcoast Stamper!
