Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Honey-Glazed Easter Ham

To me, the holidays conjure up images of family, friends, and FOOD! A clove-studded, honey-glazed Easter ham is a perfect, easy way to serve your loved ones a delicious, traditional meal. It's not difficult in the least, and doing it yourself will save you a lot of money, plus, it makes your house smell wonderful!!

6 lb. bone-in, ready-to-cook ham
1 cup water

1/4 cup whole cloves

1/4 cup dark corn syrup

2 cups honey

2/3 cup butter


In a 2 inch deep, foil-lined roasting pan or casserole dish, pour in one cup of water and place your ham, rounded side up. Bake the ham, lightly tented with foil, for 1 hour at 350.

On the stove top, heat syrup, honey, and butter on medium low heat. Stir until it's an even liquid. Don't boil!


Remove ham from oven, score, stud with cloves, and brush on a coat of honey glaze. Keep the remaining glaze warm in the saucepan, keeping the heat on low and stirring occasionally.

Cook the ham uncovered at 350 for another 1 hour and 15 minutes (or until center of ham reaches ). Baste ham with glaze every 15 minutes until done.


Remove ham from oven and let rest 20-30 minutes under foil before slicing and serving. Enjoy!
