Rating: Unrated

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Rating: Unrated
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.

Pepperoni Rolls

These are the amazingly unique pepperoni rolls found in almost all convenience stores in West Virginia and Southwestern PA. A slightly sweet fluffy dough with spicy pepperoni makes for a delicious treat!
Popcorn Candy

Cinnamon-Sugar Popcorn

Rating: Unrated
I first tried this when I was visiting my sister in West Virginia. After trying it, I loved it, however I neglected to ask her for the recipe. 10 years later, I have it, and I still love it! The kids can help make it if you use an air popper (which I did to reduce fat and calories...there's enough in the butter!) I used my deep dish lasagna pan to cook it in the oven. You can use a roasting pan or any other large, deep dish pan. It makes a lot, so either invite your friends or store it in an airtight container for later.

American Girl's Peach Cobbler

Rating: Unrated
The first person I served this for didn't like peach cobbler (unknown to me). He really enjoyed it. I just made it because it sounded yummy and I was dieting. No one will ever guess it's 'lighter' than any other cobbler. I hope you like it. Oh! and it's quick and easy.

Fresh Corn Spoon Bread

This a great custard-like corn bread that can take the place of a stuffing.
