Another Comforting Dish with Added Comfort!!

One of my food buddies entered my OctoberFEST Recipe Contest and she’s added some very comforting warmth to it –  Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey.Jack Daniel's Tennessee Honey

Now, I’ve tried this new whiskey from JD and let me tell you, it’s very smooth with a touch of sweet. Great as an addition to burgers and chili.

Well,  Sheila Christensen from San Marcos, California adds it to a Ham!! Sounds like S.C. loves some Ham and she cooks it in such a tasty way!!

She added in her entry: ” This makes an incredibly moist and flavorful ham.  Easy to make, it has an enticing aroma while cooking.  A wonderful addition to autumn tailgate, Halloween or Thanksgiving parties.  Leftover ham makes great sandwiches, especially when served with Jack Daniel’s Mustard as a condiment.  Mapled sweet potatoes and apples make a great side dish accompaniment to this hearty main dish.”

Good luck Sheila and Great Recipe!

My love of cooking has taken over. I was on the net one day and saw an ad for a recipe contest. I entered. Then, I entered another. Then another, and so on and when I won a contest... an entire year's worth of tomato products, I was hooked. Since then, I've entered many many different recipe contests. I have won a trip to New York, entries into cook-offs, a recipe published in a Kraft/Paula Deen cookbook and many food products and food related items. I enjoy cooking and entering recipe contests. I hope I spark an interest in others to create something they can be proud of. I'm always getting more ideas from the internet. Wow, I remember not having the internet years ago. It's a God send and I'm trying to cover every inch of the food sites!! Join me in my quest to keep fresh ideas flowing and creating new and exciting dishes.
