Growing up I loved ham. As an adult I loved it even more. Because ham steaks are so easy and quick to cook, plus they take up almost no room in your fridge or freezer! But, I think I’ve been lazy and resorted to them too many times because… I’ve become rather bored of ham. So I tried to spice it up with different seasonings. It turned out great, so I’m writing it down so I remember what I did. All I used was:
Equal part honey and dijon mustard
Lemon pepper seasoning
A Ham Steak
I mixed the honey and mustard, made just enough to spread on the ham steak. THen I seasoned it and baked it as normal… which for me is about 15 minutes at 350, flip it, and another 15 minutes.
My apologies I don’t have a picture of the salad. I didn’t intend on writing a blog post with this recipe. I only intended to use up some of the many tomatoes my Dad sent me from his garden. I threw stuff into a bowl and served it to people on a whim. But after everyone raved about it I figured, maybe I should write down what I did. Because (as usual) it was quite easy. Here’s all I used:
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1/3 cup Ranch dressing
Cube the zucchini and boil it for a few minutes so that it’s not as hard. I didn’t cook it completely. Cube tomato, cucumber and onion. Combine all ingredients in a serving bowl and mix them together. Leave salad in the fridge for 1 hour. Then it’s ready to serve!
To say things have been crazy around here lately would be a monumental understatement. We have been so busy, but we’ve also been having a lot of fun and getting a lot of work done! As the weather gets nicer I expect life will become even more chaotic, but I truly can’t wait!
Summer time means longer days and sometimes after a long day I need to just have a drink and watch a little Netflix with Peter. Recently Peter made a concoction for me that he hoped would taste similar to a White Russian, one of my favorite drinks. He named it the Cuban Missile Crisis and I was so impressed with it I thought I should share it so that others can enjoy this tasty treat as they unwind.
- 1-2 shots of Bacardi
- 2 shots of Bailey’s

Shake and pour in a small glass over 3-4 ice cubes. Stir in 2 tsp of chocolate syrup. Enjoy!
Months ago I wrote my first recipe blog post easy cheesey scalloped potatoes and ham, and this post is pretty much a variation of the same thing. But a variation that my hubby loves, so I figured, it’s worth another post.
4-8 white potatoes (depending on the size of potatoes)
1 lb of ham steaks
1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
10.5 ounces of golden mushroom condensed soup
Poke a few holes in your potatoes and microwave them for 3 minutes. This will make them soft. Slice them, dice ham, dice onion. Mix all the ingredients in a crock pot and cook for 5 hours on high or 10 hours on low. We put pepper on it for seasoning too.
I have always been a big fan of seafood, but for a very long time I was scared of cooking it. But it’s not scary! In fact, here is one of the easiest dishes I’ve made. And besides 2 tilapia filets, you likely have all the ingredients in your house already. All you need is:
2 tilapia filets
16 oz bag of frozen cauliflower and broccoli
1/2 tablespoon of butter
Pepper, garlic salt and old bay seasoning
And here’s all you do:
- Preheat oven at 425
- Spray a baking dish with non stick and put 2 tilapia filets in it
- Put butter on top of fillets and then surround with veggies
- Season with pepper,garlic salt and old bay
- Cook for 25-30 minutes
So very easy, so very yummy. My favorite thing about it is it tastes so light! I was completely full when done with my meal, but didn’t have that yucky overly full feeling that I often get after meals that are heavy on the carbs.
