Salted Caramel Pecan Sticky Buns
I have been making cinnamon rolls for almost 40 years. I always used the same recipe up until today. This recipe is the best batch of cinnamon rolls I have ever made! Family and friends all agreed! I was looking for something that would use the yeast I had left over from Christmas. I was intrigued that this recipe called for 2 TBS of yeast. If you are wondering how many packets that would be 1 packet = 2¼ tsp 2 Tbsp = 6 tsp. You will need 2 whole packets PLUS 1½ tsp. out of a third packet. A lot of yeast but well worth it. I did reduce the brown sugar slightly as a personal preference. The recipe called 1/4 tsp of salt in the caramel topping. However I did not put the salt in the caramel instead I sprinkled sea salt in the prepared pans. It gave the sweet caramel just the perfect taste of the the saltiness I have learned to love in my salted caramel candies. Enjoy!!!!

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese
We loved this. I would love to say I didn't change a thing but I ended up using up a few different cheeses we had in our dairy drawer in addition to the cheeses the recipe called for. I made this in a glass bottom dish and baked it with the ham. It got a bit brown on the bottom. (I should have thought of that) Even the brown was tasty but a bit tough. I will make this again. I just made my husband his lunch to take to work and I have to say that this recipe is just as good if not better the next day. YUM!!!

Bourbon-Glazed Ham
This is a 5 star all the way! I doubled the recipe and used a 10 lbs bone in 1/2 ham. I usually by a pre glazed spiral ham and since this was just a regular ham I wanted to add a glaze. I put it in a roasting bag and let it marinade for about 14 hours. (flipped it about 4 times) I hate bourbon and my parents had left 2 bottles here and I wanted to use it up. I was nervous because one of the reviews said that it left a strong bourbon flavor. But my guests and I felt it gave it a rich savory flavor. Everyone loved it. This glaze is OUTSTANDING. I even forgot the garlic which would have made it even better. Thanks Jennifer. I will forever keep bourbon in my kitchen from here on out!
