I remember way back when I first started cooking hams, they were so confusing. There were so many different kinds and there never seemed to be any standards and often no directions. Well, this ham, Easy Pineapple Glazed Ham is so easy, even if your ham has the directions attached, toss them out.
I’ve been a little obsessed with scones, lately. I wanted to find the definitive scone. The scone to best all scones. The one scone to rule them all. What I discovered is that I just seem to like all scones, and most of all the one I’m eating! This week it’s my Dried Blueberry Lemon Scones.
Well, some of you may have noticed I’ve been a little awol over the past few weeks. After my fave octogenarians, the folks, moved into a gorgeous assisted living center, their house was settled and I came back to the Twin Cities – along with Homer & Chance, of course.
I love that Quick Breads just seem to scream “good home cooking” don’t you? They’re great for all kinds of occasions: when company is dropping by, for brunch, or maybe to take to the office or to a family who needs a bit of a boost. This would make anyone feel better, at least while they’re eating it!
For years I made Boston Cream Pie on Valentine’s Day for my kids. I loved putting little chocolate hearts around the edge of the cake and I loved that it had such a gorgeous old fashioned look with the glaze dripping down and the custard peeping out. It reminded me of those cakes that Yogi Bear stole along with the Pahnicanic baskets.
