''Easter Its all about the kids''

Updated on March 30, 2013

Easter Love

Easter is only one day away and many of you have your menu planned and ready to go.

As for me this year with so many things going on this month I really did not plan anything

so this year for Easter I was going to do something different, Let my grandchildren get involved with the menu I would prepare for Easter Sunday Dinner. To keep the rest of the family happy I also will keep some of the old favorites. last year I had replaced the ever popular baked ham with a roasted turkey breast but this year I have included a tasty glazed ham that I'm sure everyone is going to love.

Using my grandchildren was a pure delight I thought it was going to slow me down while I was trying to cook,But they all stuck around and help out. James my 7 year old wanted corn on the cob and potatoes, Darius my 9 year old wanted collard greens and corn bread and my oldest grandchild Renee want macaroni and cheese and a chocolate cake for dessert since her birthday is the first Tuesday after Easter.

So our family menu read like this;

Oven Roasted Turkey Breast Honey Dijon Baked Ham

Corn on the Cob Collard Greens

Macoroni and Cheese Au gratin potatoes

Hot water Cornbread Bread Dressing

Turkey Gravy Chocolate Cake

The kids really loved how everything turned out and so did the rest of the family and friends

as for me, I'm always trying to think of new recipes to include in our family cook book, And in my family restaurant this year we added some new recipes to our cook book thanks to the grandchildren and may just started a new tradition with them as well, Cooking with them gave me a new way of bonding with them and them with each other with every body learning something in the process.

Enclosed is the recipe for the Honey Dijon Baked Ham and if you choose to try any of these other entree's E-MAIL at and one will be forward to you, lease try and enjoy.

Honey Dijon Baked Ham

3\4 cup packed brown sugar Eight pound ham

3\4 cup orange marmalade 1\ 2 cup dijon mustard

1\2 tsp whole cloves

Combine brown sugar, marmalade and dijon mustard, set aside. Score (cut) the surface of the ham, making diamond shapes 1\2 inch deep. Insert a whole clove in the center of each diamond.

Place ham on shallow roasting pan. bake uncovered at 325 degrees for two hours or until a meat

thermometer reads 140 degrees. Brush ham with glaze,bake for 45 minutes longer, brushing the glaze every 15 minutes. Serve remaining glaze when slicing the ham. remember a 8 pound ham will feed 16 people, this is enough glaze for a 8 pound ham.................Enjoy..............................

Honey Dijon Ham
