      Re: Holiday Recipes...

      I'm thinking of making a ham for my Christmas party, depending on the cost and quality of ham at the time, of course.

      Get out your cookbook for advice on proper oven temperatures and doneness temps for ham.

      The basic recipe is:
      Get out the biggest stock pot you own, place the ham larges end down in the stock pot and fill with water to cover as much (preferably all, if your pot is big enough) of the ham as possible. Pull the ham back out and set the pot of water to boil. Once boiling, put the ham back in and add as much extra water as necessary, again, to cover as much ham as possible. Boil for an hour.

      With a sharp knife, cut any remaining skin from the ham and score the fat (about 1" diamonds is good).

      In a small saute' pan, melt a few tablespoons of butter (start with 3 and go from there as needed), add in several tablespoons of DARK brown sugar, and squirt in yellow mustard until it reaches the consistency of a loose paste (a tablespoon or two of mustard). Smear sugar-mustard paste thickly over the entire ham.

      Place ham in a roasting pan and bake, according to recommended temperatures, for about an hour or until internal temperature reaches doneness as prescribed by your cookbook. Take ham out of the oven and rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

      I know that's not exactly a scientific recipe, but "boil and hour, bake an hour" works pretty well for me. By the way, that's starting with a refrigerated ham, not frozen.

      Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

          ohmygoodness that ham sounds yummy!!!! dinner is when??? lol

          here's one i just got from a friend today...quite timely as i was just hunting around for something easy to make for tomorrow's pot yuck..i mean luck! lolol

          Cream Cheese Chicken

          4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 to 6)
          1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
          Salt and pepper -- to taste
          1 pkg dry Ranch or Italian Dressing mix
          1 can cream of chicken soup
          8 oz cream cheese -- cut into cubes
          1/2 cup chicken broth
          1/2 chopped onion

          Brush chicken with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in a Crock Pot and sprinkle 1/2 pkg dry mix over all. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours. About 45 minutes before done, brown onion in 1/4 cup of juices from Crock Pot. Add soup, remaining half of dry dressing mix, cream cheese and chicken broth. Cook until smooth. Pour over the chicken and cover and cook another 45 minutes.
          Serve with sauce.
          Goes great with rice, stuffing, pasta or mashed potatoes!
          Add in broccoli or other veggies for variety.

            Do a search on kraftfoods.com, they might have it, I know i've seen similar in their magazine recently.

            I'll type up some of my favorite holiday recipes tomorrow, and some that I hope to try soon.
            For halloween, I never make anyting special. I did make spider cupcakes last year, but it took forever to do.
            Forthanksgiving, I make impossible pumpkin pie, which is pumpkin pie w/out a crust.
            Quick question, if I want to past something from a website onto here, how do I quote it? So I can put up some of my favorites on here.

                  It won't let me paste, that's my problem.

                          My only holiday specialty is sugar cookies. They're pretty simple. I do have a bunch of recipes though - I'll try to get some posted.

                                    All I like is Pumpkin Pie as long as no pumkins were killed or harmed in the process of making the pie. I also don't support un-humane and unethical treatment of pumkins.
