Mother's Day

I always think of my Mom when I read the poem above and I know she is waiting for me in heaven.  This is a link to my Mama’s Cathead Biscuits that was always one of my favorite recipes from her.

One of my favorite quotes about moms:

“A Mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world.  It knows no law, no pity,  it dares all things, and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. ~~ Agatha Christie

I am excited to be spending Sunday with my girls and celebrating “Mom’s Day”.   They are taking me to lunch and we are going shopping afterwards.

EASY ORANGE BUNDT CAKE

Easy Orange CakeCake is one of my favorite things in this world.  I love it! I could eat cake every meal.  This cake will quickly become one of your “go to” recipes especially if you like anything orange flavored.  It is so easy to make using a mix and keeps well in a cool place for several days. It is a great cake to take to the office or on a picnic or anywhere you need a recipe your friends and family will love.  I have not tried freezing it but see no reason why you couldn’t.

Cake:

1 (15.25 ounce) box Pillsbury Traditional Yellow Cake Mix

1 (3.5 ounce) box French Vanilla Instant Pudding and Pie Filling

3 eggs

1 1/4 cups fresh or regular orange juice from carton

1 stick or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon orange or vanilla extract

1 tablespoon orange zest

Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, orange juice, butter and extract and mix on medium with mixer.  Fold in orange zest and mix with spoon. Batter will be thick.  Spray a 10 inch bundt pan with cooking spray generously.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until center is done when tested.  Cool about 10 minutes in pan. Remove and let cool completely. Add frosting or glaze recipe below.   Makes 1 cake.

Glaze:

3/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk

1 to 2 tablespoons orange zest

Whisk together ingredients and drizzle over cooled cake.

Note:  You could also frost this cake with my cream cheese frosting recipe and add the orange zest to the frosting or use any frosting you like on this cake. This is the only way I make this cake because we like the recipe the way it is posted above. You could make it in a 9 x 13 pan if you like.

Enjoy!

HONEY BOURBON GLAZED HAM

Honey Bourbon Glazed Ham

We love ham anytime.  I am republishing this ham recipe since so many have asked me how I do my holiday hams.  We always have ham for Easter and Christmas. I get rave reviews on this recipe. You can check out the comments, too.

There are some rules and tips to follow when baking ham.  First of all a ham with the bone in it will be more flavorful.

A fully cooked ham can be eaten right from the package but the flavor can be enhanced by heating and adding a glaze.

Most likely you won’t find a ham that has not been cooked to some degree in the store.  Hams are usually partially or fully cooked when you buy them.

Allow 1/4 pound of ham per person for a boneless ham.  Remember to consider the weight of the bone for a bone-in-ham.

You should allow 20 minutes baking time per pound in a 350 degree oven for a partially cooked ham.  If the ham is fully cooked allow 10 minutes per pound to heat.  Allow 35 to 40 minutes per pound for uncooked hams.

Place the cut side down in the pan when cooking and I baste mine about every 20 minutes.  The ham should reach 160 degrees to be ready for serving.

Honey Bourbon Glazed Ham (3) - Copy

This is the glaze I use to cook my hams.

1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup bourbon (preferably Kentucky bourbon!)
Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl and baste ham with mixture every 20 minutes while cooking. 
Once cooked remove ham from pan, slice and pour liquid over ham, serve.  Enjoy!
 
Note:  I always trim off the excess fat and freeze along with the ham hock to use for seasoning in recipes.
