Baked Ham with Spiced Cherry Sauce



This Easter I wanted to try out a few new sauces to go alongside the traditional baked ham we serve. I found this easy recipe over at ChinDeep. My only change was the halve the amount of cinnamon and cloves, as I found the spices overwhelmed the cherry flavor. Enjoy!


Baked Ham with Spiced Cherry Sauce
Makes many servings

  • 1 ham, size is up to you, follow directions on the package and bake accordingly
  • 1 (12 oz.) jar whole cherry preserves (Recommended: Smucker’s “Orchard’s Finest”)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon orange zest
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 dash ground cloves

1. Combine the preserves, sugar, orange zest, cinnamon and cloves and heat in a small bowl in the microwave or in a small saucepan on your stove top. Stir until just heated. Plate the ham, pour sauce on top and garnish with more fresh orange zest if desired.

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Mexican Dorito Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.


Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!
