Peach-blueberry cake and blueberry jam

These are some of the fruits (geddit?) of my labors. The so-called cake has a crust that its inventors at Gourmet call "a cross between a biscuit and a cake." Hey, folks, around here we call that a COOKIE. It is a tart with a cookie crust. And it's delicious, by the way.

This was my first batch of jam ever, and I was having trouble with my candy thermometer. But somehow it came out exactly the way I wanted it. In addition to these half-pints, we have most of a pint jar in the fridge for current use. For a while I was just spooning warm jam straight into my mouth. Then I got ahold of myself.
