Honey Glazed Ham

Honey Glazed Ham

This Honey Glazed Ham came to me by way of my daughter, Jessi. We thoroughly enjoyed it at Easter but it would be just as at home for Mother’s day or any other holiday or brunch.

Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes

Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes

On my site already is a recipe for Scalloped Potatoes Like Your Grandma Made. I love those and they are def a go-to at my house, especially after any holiday with ham (when I often sprinkle in both cheese and ham between the layers). But if you look at that post and get down to the comments and discussion,  you’ll see that these Old Fashioned Scalloped Potatoes also hit a nostalgic note, too. I know this recipe actually predates my “Grandma” potatoes, maybe by decades. Deb asked about these the other day, so I hope you’re following! Thanks to you, I was “forced” to eat two big helpings of this last night, lol!

Better than Classic Beer Brats

Better than Classic Beer Brats

First of all, I gotta count on you guys for a little help. Whatever you do, please don’t tell any of my Wisconsin neighbors (Wisconsin is credited for the innovation of the Beer Brat…even Wikipedia says so) about this recipe. A Minnesotan messing around with their beloved Beer Brats and making outrageous claims could just be the final straw. None of us can take one more disaster or any more stress this year! I think I’m already on the edge! So now, with that settled, let me tell ya how to make what I think is better than classic Beer Brats.

Sweet & Spicy Cajun Spare Ribs

Sweet & Spicy Cajun Spare Ribs

What a crazy year it’s been so far (now June of 2020). It’s one of those times that I, as a food blogger, feel so inadequate. After all, here I am writing about Sweet & Spicy Cajun Spare Ribs as Covid ravages the world, murder is meted out as justice and the nation burns. In the end, I can only do what I can do, and for me, that’s questioning and learning, listening with an open mind, and even more with an open heart. And I can accept that change isn’t easy. If it were, it would have happened already. And I can hope that we as individuals and as a nation don’t miss this opportunity, as difficult as it is, to grow, to change, to be better.
