Reviewed Baked Ham With Spiced Cherry Glaze

Apr 14, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

This glaze is amazing!!! While I didn't actually glaze the ham (want to make soup, and casserole with leftover bone/ham), having the sauce on the side was delicious. We will be using this spiced cherry glaze on various cuts of meat: Venison chops, pork ribs, grilled chicken... Very good and fresh tasting - easy! I added about a tablespoon of "

This was excellent!!! The cake is moist and yummy, and the brown sugar/pineapple topping was perfect, making it sweet, but not too sweet. I baked it in my 12" cast iron pan, and it took 48 minutes in a regular oven at 350 degrees. I checked it at 30, and it was very soupy still. Finally, it set. I did not serve it warm, I made it early in the"

Finally, a good buttermilk pie recipe (with changes recommended from other reviewers). I rated this only 4, because the recipe will not work as listed, with the changes it is 5-star. This is what I did: 1 cup sugar + 2 TBLS, 4 TBLS flour, Zest from 2 lemons, 4 extra-large eggs, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 1 cup buttermilk, 1/2 stick (4 TBLS) butter, melt"

I made this tonight to go with our Corned Beef & Cabbage - it was absolutely delicious... and easy! Very tender, not dry. I made it true to the recipe except I only had a generous one tablespoon of caraway, so that is all I used. The bread was a huge hit! I baked it according to the directions, maybe 2 minutes longer. I will be baking this ag"

Made this last night....Excellent! Better than any restaurant version! Will definitely make again! Served with steamed asparagus and Brazilian Cheese Buns. This is perfect for entertaining - make ahead, bring to room temperature, bake. I did put this under the broiler for a few minutes to brown up the topping. I only used half the salt in the"

I made this for Thanksgiving - it was great! (had to double it - yay for left overs! Based on other reviews, I had to adjust the cooking time for the onions... started at 475, then reduced to 425, then 400 over 40 - 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. I did add just a splash of sherry to the mushroom sauce, and it was a really good addition, "

Just made this, OMG - Delish!!! Ina has done it again!!! I did add a rind of parmigiano regiano to the homemade stock while it was simmering with the veggies, did not add the dill at the end, and used kale instead of spinach. Note: I cooked the pasta separate, and added to each bowl. I will definitely be making this again. The meatballs were"

OMG! Fabulous!! Made this yesterday...yes, it took longer than expected, but thanks to other comments, I knew that going in. I followed the recipe exactly, with these few additions: I filled the cavity with a halved lemon and 5 whole cloves of garlic. Cooked bird on bed of sweet potatoes. Finished with chopped fresh parsley. Presentation w...
