Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Rating: 4.73 stars
I came up with the glaze for this ham using ingredients on hand and it's the best I've ever tasted. If you have any glaze left over, you can add it to the pan drippings with a little flour or cornstarch and make a nice sauce to accompany the meat. Use the bone and ham trimmings to make soup afterwards.

Baked Ham with Glaze

Rating: 4.79 stars
This is a favorite on Easter. Everyone kept going back until the ham was gone. They loved this glaze which, by the way, I got from a church member.

Stuffed Leg of Lamb

Rating: 4.73 stars
Rolled leg of lamb stuffed with spinach, goat's cheese and pine nuts. Suggested: Serve with Brussels sprouts cooked in butter and fresh garlic. A scrumptious Irish cuisine that is sure to please!

Special Italian Easter Pizza

Rating: 4.5 stars
My college roommate's family made this every Easter and sent a whole pie to us. I loved it and asked for a recipe but was told I could not have it. So I tweaked a few recipes I found myself, and my final result is a dish that was better than the original recipe. Enjoy!

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Rating: 4.52 stars
This is an authentic, really rich pie stuffed with spinach, onions, cheeses and herbs that are all enfolded by crispy, flaky phyllo dough.

Pistachio Crusted Rack of Lamb

Rating: 4.94 stars
The pistachio and mustard crust gives this lamb dish an interesting flavor and texture. Sure, rack of lamb is a little pricey, but no more so than other special occasion meats like prime rib, beef tenderloin, or goose. And, because rack of lamb is sold completely trimmed, you'll have virtually no waste.

Asparagus Pie

Rating: 4.1 stars
This dish is similar to a clafoutis but is savory.

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Rating: 4.83 stars
I have had this recipe for a long time, and always enjoy making it. You can also do the same thing with beef or pork.
