Glazed Holiday Ham Recipe and Farberware Giveaway

Glazed Holiday Ham Recipe

Disclosure: I received a Farberware Cookware set to facilitate this post. All opinions are 100% my own. My family's favorite main dish for the holidays is ham. Last year, I shared a recipe for making ham in a slow cooker. That is still a great way to make ham, but this year I wanted to share a faster way to make a ham. This Glazed Holiday Ham is heated in a Dutch oven for about one hour. The recipe is adapted from a fantastic recipe that my sister-in-law uses to make glazed deli ham for … {continue reading}

Three Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Pudding Cookies

Pumpkin Spice Pudding Cookies

These Three Ingredient Pumpkin Spice Pudding Cookies were made with a free sample of Jif Whips from Smuckers. I love getting deliveries and fun things in the mail. With the holidays right around the corner, I've been getting packages like crazy and one of the boxes had a ton of bubble wrap in it. My brother-in-law in his kids came over to our house and I told the kids that they could have the bubble wrap to pop. Of course, they were delighted...until they tried actually popping it...and … {continue reading}

Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza

This post brought to you by Simply Potatoes. All opinions are 100% mine. Growing up, one of our favorite things to have for dinner was breakfast!

Bloomin’ Baked Potato Recipe

Bloomin Baked Potato

We had so much fun with the Bloomin' Baked Apples I shared last month that my whole family decided that we needed to make some more bloomin' recipes. I've seen the fabulous bloomin' onion bread recipes online and one of these days I am going to try it but we wanted to go with something else. We tossed around ideas for other things that could be cut in a similar way and we decided on potatoes! Baked potatoes are good anyway, but then when you cut them, cover them with oil and salt and top them … {continue reading}

I like it when appetizers have a lot of flavor, some spice and of course, bacon is always a bonus. Today I want to share a recipe for Spicy Bacon Wrapped Sweet Peppers that is … {continue reading}

Pumpkin Magic Custard Cake Recipe

Magic Custard Pumpkin Cake

Have you ever heard of magic custard cake? It is something that has been on my baking bucket list ever since I spotted the cakes by Todd and Diane at White On Rice Couple.

I'm so excited to share my latest mason jar gift with you. Fall is my favorite season! I love the colorful leaves, the crisp fall air, crunchy apples and cheerful pumpkins.
