Mango Jalapeno Ham Glaze

Mango jalapeno glaze for ham.

Christmas and New Year’s are just around the corner! I can’t believe how quickly the holiday season is coming up, and I am busy planning for holiday entertaining. When it comes to the holiday meals nothing is better than ham. It is easy to make, delicious, and serves a crowd at a reasonable price. This year I made this tasty Mango Jalapeno Ham Glaze for the holidays.

A ham glaze adds flavor, texture and color to a ham, is the perfect finishing touch for a nice presentation. The glaze makes the ham shiny and glossy, and it takes only a few minutes to achieve a nice effect. I wanted to use some different, less traditional holiday flavors for my ham glaze this year, and I decided on mangoes and jalapenos for a spicy and sweet glaze.

These Stained Glass Votive Candle Holders aren’t really stained glass, instead they are made by covering the candle holders in colored tissue paper. But they look like stained glass, especially with a candle flickering inside them!

These Faux Stained Glass Votive Candle Holders are the perfect Christmas present project! I bought the supplies for this 2 1/2 years ago, and then never found time to do the the project. I don’t know why we waited so long for this project, because it was very easy to do and not time consuming at all. We had fun experimenting with different colors of tissue paper, and making designs in a variety of colors.

Maple Roasted Carrots

I am always looking for new ways to serve old favorites, like carrots. While browsing Pinterest for sides for Thanksgiving I came across this recipe for Maple Glazed Carrots, and decided it would work well. So I changed it up a little and made these Maple Roasted Carrots.

I modified the recipe up by using olive oil instead of butter, and adding garlic too. I love garlic, so I tend to add it to most vegetable dishes! I also used multi-colored carrots to make the dish look pretty, which makes it perfect the the Thanksgiving table.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Pears

This recipe for Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Pears would make a great side dish for Thanksgiving!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Pears - An easy Holiday side dish

I used to think I didn’t like sweet potatoes, because the only way I’d ever eaten them was the typical Thanksgiving side dish where they are covered with brown sugar and marshamallows.  That dish is way too sweet for me, but it turns out that I love sweet potatoes when are served so that their natural flavor shines through.  Now I eat roasted, bake or sauteed sweet potatoes all the time, and enjoy them quite a bit.

To make a football shape I used a circular cookie cutter.  First I cut out a circle shape, and then used the same cookie cutter to go over half the circle and make it a football shape.

Holiday season is all about parties!  We always host a big family party on Christmas Day and have lots of appetizers and finger food for everyone to eat until Christmas dinner. This year one of the appetizers I am planning to make is these Jalapeno Crab Bites, a delicious party food.

I like to have a large variety of food for our Christmas Day, because it is one of those days many people don’t each much for breakfast!  The excitement of presents means breakfast tends to be rushed, if it is eaten at all.  Everyone in my family loves seafood, so I try to include some every year.  A few years ago I made a squid appetizer, and that was not a big hit, so I figured I’d stick to something more traditional this year and make crab cake bites.  This recipe uses Tabasco Green Jalapeno sauce to enhance the flavor of the crab meat.
