I love to share food blogs with you, but this one is really special to me!

I saw recipe posted for lemon cake with black tea frosting posted somewhere on the net, and went to investigate. I discovered Honey and Jam! Then I actually made that cake, learning all sorts of techniques that were new to me, and I was even inspired to dream up what I would change when I make the cake next time.  After I got over my lemon-cake-induced-culinary-frenzy, I started poking around at the other recipes and found tons that I can’t wait to try, that’s when I knew that I had to share this site with all of you.

I can attest for the splendor of the lemon cake. It was tart, light as a feather, and the frosting was a perfect counterbalance of strong black tea to the zing of the lemon. I have plans to try the Roasted Tomato Soup,  No Knead Bread, as well as the Black Tea and Blackberry Sorbet. Blackberries are even on sale at my local grocery store right now too!

On top of the amazing recipes at the site, you are going to find beautiful photography. I came for the recipes, and I stayed for the photos.  The food looks mouthwatering and makes you sad you don’t have whatever is in the photograph in front of you to eat. I really enjoyed the just photography posts too. I’ll warn you there hasn’t been a new recipe post in some time, though the author’s social accounts are still active with new photography posts. But delicious recipes never get old!

I think you’re going to love Honey and Jam, so go check it out!
