Because of some unfortunate circumstances, I was not able to cook as many dishes at Easter that I had planned.  In fact, I just cooked one: this tasty baked ham recipe that I saw on Trisha Yearwood’s show on the Food Network.  Her show is one of my favorites because all of her dishes are fairly simple with ingredients that you will find in any grocery store.

When I saw this recipe, I knew it would be a perfect holiday main dish and it didn’t disappoint.  I love using honey in recipes especially since my father-in-law and his first cousin have hives and process their own honey.  The little bees that made this honey buzz around in my own backyard.


1 spiral sliced ham-Mine was approximately 10 pounds

1 cup honey

2 cups brown sugar

Adjust your oven racks to accommodate the ham and preheat to 350 degrees.  Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a rack on top of that. Spray both with non-stick spray.  You will want a large baking pan with sides to catch the extra basting liquid.

Place the ham on the rack and cover the ham with foil as well.  Place it in the oven and bake for half the estimated cooking time (about 20 minutes per pound).


When you are close to the halfway mark, heat the honey and brown sugar in a medium pan until the sugar dissolves.


  Pour this over the ham and continue to cook, basting occasionally with the juices.  Allow the ham to stand for a few minutes after it is done then slice and enjoy!

Menu Plan Monday

Good Monday morning, my lovely readers!  This week is our school’s spring break so C & I are taking a few days off as well to work on a couple of landscaping/gardening projects and maybe to get a little extra rest as well.  Since we will be outside as much as possible, this week’s menu is pretty simple until the weekend when it is time to celebrate our risen Lord and Savior on Easter Sunday.

This week is also a sad and emotional time for me as well.  My mom passed away two years ago on April 5th and her birthday would have been on Easter Sunday so there is a tinge (ok, more than a tinge) of melancholy during this beautiful time.  Mom loved the springtime and whenever the March lilies and forsythias bloom their vibrant yellow, it reminds me so much of her and her love for flowers and plants.  Oh, how I miss her…but, C’s birthday is today so we do have one big happy occasion to celebrate.  Happy birthday, my love!  I hope and pray that you have many, many, many more!
