Leftover Ham Calzone Recipe

Another recipe I created during the Cook’s Ham blogger conference was Ham Calzones. I already have a recipe for prosciutto calzones on here, and this recipe is not very different. In fact, you’ll want to visit that recipe to find out how to make your own homemade dough… because store-bought dough just isn’t the same […]

Ham and Cheese Omelet Recipe

We enjoyed our free Cook’s Ham on Easter, and despite the fact that the 10-pound beast fed nine people at my parents’ house, I was able to bring home a hefty amount of leftovers. Now it’s time to make all of those recipes I came up with at the conference for using my leftover Cook’s […]

Cook’s Ham Breakfast Crescents Recipe

When I attended the Cook’s Ham Blogger Conference at Price Chopper last week, one of our hostesses had created a recipe of her own that wasn’t on the Cook’s Ham Web site along with the other recipes.

We use a modified pizza dough recipe that originated in […]

Happy National Cupcake Day

I can’t think of a more fun day to celebrate than National Cupcake Day… can you? I thought I’d take this opportunity to thank Hostess Cupcakes for sending me a few free boxes of chocolaty goodness a month or so back – to celebrate their 90th anniversary! It was pretty awesome. I was tweeting with them […]
