Ham Recipes Baked & Much More

An Obsession with Ham The Hindquarter is one of the best ham cookbooks available on Amazon and it is packed with more than 100 recipes from around the world including baked ham recipes.  Written by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough and photographed by Marcus Nilsson, it promises to help you find a few more ways to cook your ham.

I agree with Amazon when they say ham is delicious from the very beginning. Simply prepared, ham melts in your mouth so add a special recipe like my The Best-Ever Glazed Baked Ham and well, it can be like a slice of heaven.

With this book, you will literally travel the world of ham including the Philippines, Spain, the Caribbean, the American South, Conneticut and more.  Enjoy the authors' stories and (to quote Amazon) pig out on the recipes.

Faturing 224 pages of stories and recipes, this book is a fairly recent publication, from March 1, 2010 and has already garnered some interesting 'HAm'azon customer reviews, including:

'Eat Before Reading' and '...delicious from cover to cover.' ~~ S. Rogers

'HAM, The new cookbook by Weinstein and Scarbrough is outstanding in every way. It has given me insights into preparing AND enjoying wonderful ham.' ~~ Joan Lewis

'This is a feast of a book. More delicious recipes for ham than I could have imagined, punctuated by a hilarious narrative of the authors' adventures during their year of ham.' ~~ Wren

With those reviews and the fact that Amazon has it nicely discounted at 30 percent off, this is a cookbook that I need to add to my collection.  It would also make an amazing gift for any of the cooks on your list.  Mother's Day immediately comes to my mind.

French Bull Mosaic Patterned Apron

I'm in love with French Bull's mosaic patterned apron. This weekend when I baked my ham and pulled on my old apron, I was reminded of this one. Somehow it just makes me think 'baked ham.' If I had an apron for every meal, I would surely strap this one on when I threw together our holiday baked ham.

A brilliant combination of color and pattern in a bold design by designer Jackie Shapiro, the mosaic pattern (just one of French Bull’s distinctive apron designs) has origins from South America and South East Asia.

There is something about the fresh, colorful pattern that draws me in and the pink, of course, makes me think ham.  Made of an oxford cloth in 100 percent cotton, it is, of course machine washable.

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that there are some coordinating melamine dishes available! This apron just left my ham dinner and became my BBQ apron!

This apron would be a wonderful gift for anyone who wants to stir up a little fun in their own kitchen or as a hostess gift, a wedding gift or even a Mother's Day gift. It is sure to please someone on your shopping list, adding a couple of the melamine plates, table linens or serving pieces would elevate an already special gift choice into an extra special one.
