i'm hungry for easter.

the best part of any holiday is the food. growing up, & even now as an adult, ham is always the star of our easter meal. i thought i'd pass along one of our family's favorite ham recipes, borrowed from our good friends art & peggy.

ham a la art & peggy

1 whole ham: wash, cut off fat & cut slices in the top.
cover the entire ham with mustard & bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.
after baking, dump the grease.

then, mix the following ingredients together & pour over the ham:
2 cans of whole cranberry sauce
1/2 cup to 1 cup of water
2-3 Tbsp. mustard
2-3 Tbsp. brown sugar

after you've poured the mixture on the ham, return it to the oven & bake at 350 degrees, until the ham is done (approximately 1-2 hours), basting every 15 minutes.

& although, ham may be the star, we all know no easter meal would be complete without loads of sides & desserts. our menu hasn't been finalized, but here are some of the recipes i'm drooling over...

ham & asparagus quiche
honey yeast rolls
layered tortellini spinach salad
maple whipped sweet potatoes
raspberry asparagus
carrot souffle
sweet spinach salad
home cooked pole beans
deviled eggs
& if you're not in the mood for ham, this spring stuffed chicken sounds yummy!
1-2-3-4 lemon cake
grandma's carrot cake
lemon freeze with raspberry sauce

so what are you hungry for this easter?
