Spinach Salad with Peaches and Pecans

Rating: 4.7 stars
A perfect summer salad with ripe peaches, baby spinach, and roasted pecans

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.

Cinnamon-Sugar Popcorn

Rating: 4.47 stars
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.

Southern Peach Cobbler

Everybody loves this recipe, even my friends who do not like sweets. Excellent with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Heavenly Hot Dog Sauce
Rating: Unrated
This is my family's favorite hotdog sauce. It originates from West Virginia. We like it with a bite, but you can adjust it to your taste. We top the hotdogs with ketchup, mustard, the hotdog sauce, and finally some chopped onions...YUM! This recipe makes enough for freezing and using later.
