Honey Mustard Glazed Ham

"I came up with this easy and fast recipe one night when I was trying to think of something to make for dinner.  I had leftover ham in the fridge so I came up with a simple glaze which took my  leftovers from bland to DELICIOUS." 
"Ham slices with a sweet and tangy glaze!"

4 slices of Cooked Ham ( I have also purchased Ham Steaks from the Meat Department.)
1 Tablespoon butter
ground black pepper, to taste
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon honey mustard

In a skillet, melt butter.  Add ham slices and sprinkle with desired amount of pepper.  Saute on both sides, until browned.  Remove ham slices from the pan and set aside while you make the glaze.  To the skillet, add brown sugar and honey mustard, stirring to combine.  Return ham slices to the skillet, coating each side with the glaze.  Saute until glaze is heated through.  Serve with your favorite side dish.

Man Approved Meatloaf

"I think my husband's very favorite meal is meatloaf.  He would eat it every day if he could.  I think it's a 'man-thing', because my step-dad loved meatloaf too.  I have made it in so many different ways, but I think (and so does my hubby) this combination is my favorite!" 

1 medium onion, finely diced
1 clove of garlic, finely minced
1 Tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
In a small skillet, heat oil over medium heat.  Sauté onions until tender.  Add garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside (you will add the onion and garlic mixture to the meat mixture in the next step). 
2 pounds hamburger
2 slices of white bread, torn into small pieces
2 eggs
6 ounces (1/2 of a jar) chili sauce*
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Mix hamburger, bread pieces, eggs, chili sauce, reserved onion and garlic mixture, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper together (I have found that the easiest way to combine the ingredients is with my hands).  Form into a loaf and place into a loaf pan.  Top with sauce (recipe follows) and bake.
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Combine ketchup, barbecue sauce and Worcestershire sauce.  Spoon on top of meatloaf. 
Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cooked completely.
*Chili sauce can be found on the condiment aisle of the grocery store by the cocktail sauce.  If you are unable to find the chili sauce, you may substitute ketchup.

German Chocolate Cookies

"My mom makes these delicious cookies.  They come together so easily because you use a boxed German chocolate cake mix and canned coconut pecan frosting."
  "German chocolate cake made easy!"

1 boxed Duncan Hines German Chocolate Cake Mix
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 container of Duncan Hines Creamy Home-Style Coconut Pecan Frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Using a mixer, combine cake mix, flour, sugar, eggs and oil until fully combined.  Spoon by tablespoons onto a non-stick cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.  Bake for approximately 10 minutes at 350 degrees.  Allow cookies to cool completely and ice with Coconut Pecan Frosting.  ENJOY!!!
