Glazed Ham on the Grill

This ham starts off with a simple glaze and the cooking method is easy.  You can use an oven but you will get so much more flavor on the grill and I highly recommend charcoal over gas here. 

Glazed Ham on the Grill                                                                             Printable Recipe

1 ham, spiral cut or not (any size will do - mine was 9 lbs)
1 cup honey
1 Tablespoons A-1 sauce

Start charcoal grill and allow to pre-heat.  Each ham comes with it's own directions.  Mine was 300 degrees and 15 minutes per pound to heat.  

Mix together honey and A-1.

Gma's Featherlight Pancakes

Gma? What does that mean?  It is short for GRANDMA!  Some time ago we got lazy in our typing messages back and forth we that shortened grandma and grandpa to gma and gpa....it stuck.  Even the grandkids call them that!

These are the pancakes my mom has been making since I was little kid.  She always made shaped pancakes for my sister and I. This is a thinner batter so it was easy to do.  At the end of cooking she always made the 50 cent size pancakes and even if we had already had enough pancakes we always had room for those.  Now she makes these pancakes with my daughter and my niece.  The fun part now is that she lets them add coloring.  So grandpa has eaten purple, pink, green, and sometimes blue pancakes!

Gma's Featherlight Pancakes

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 Tablespoons oil

Sauerbraten

Another favorite German dish of our family is sauerbraten. Translated it means "sour roast" and that is exactly what it is.  A big 'ol hunk of beef soured in a marinade for up to three days.  The "gravy" is fantastic (no gingersnaps in this recipe.)  This meal takes some forethought for prep time and a few more steps to make but certainly worth the effort!

Sauerbraten


Marinade:

2 cups water
1 cup cider vinegar
1 cup red wine vinegar
1 med onion, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
1 Tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 bay leaves
6 whole cloves
teaspoon mustard seeds*

3 ½ - 4 pounds boneless chuck roast
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

Cooking Ingredients:

Oil
4-5 carrots – sliced or quartered
Medium onion, chopped
A small tomato or 1/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup sugar
Packet brown gravy mix
cornstarch

Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug

Most people crave a little something sweet now and then.  The bad part about making your own goodies is that the recipe makes either a whole cake or 2 dozen cookies.  This little treat in a mug will satisfy your sweet tooth, makes a minimal mess, and controls your portion. 

Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug                                                              Printable Recipe

1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
pinch salt
1 egg yolk
3 Tablespoons flour (Jovial einkorn flour can be substituted)
1 Tablespoon mini chocolate chips

In your mug, melt butter (takes about 25 seconds if cold, check often so it doesn't boil.) Add sugars, vanilla, and salt.

Sunflower Cupcakes Tutorial

My blogger friend Ally from Ally's Sweet and Savory Eats is having a baby! My fellow Iowa Bloggers and I are throwing her a virtual baby shower.  I made sunflower cupcakes.

Please check out the rest of the goodies at Blissfully Delicious!

Sunflower Cupcakes Tutorial

Yellow cake cupcakes (or white cake mix tinted yellow)
Your favorite frosting recipe (see mine here)
Buttercup and/or yellow Paste color
# 352 or 366 LEAF decorating Tip
Sandwich cookies
Decorating Bag (I use disposable ones)

Tint your frosting.  Use just a small amount of paste to color the frosting. It doesn't take much and if you put too much in you can't go back! Add icing to decorator bag fitted with decorating tip.

Maple and Citrus Glazed Fish

My family likes fish and love REAL maple syrup so I came up with this glaze for something a little different for them.  I am not a fish fan myself but I tried a bite anyway.  It didn't win me over to love fish but it make me think that this glaze would be quite tasty on a piece of chicken and will try it the next time I make this fish for my family. 

Maple and Citrus Glazed Fish

1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
few dashes or cracks of salt
1 pound white fish (I used Swai)

Combine orange juice and maple syrup in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook 5-6 minutes. Add salt and stir.
