My parents were visiting, I cooked a Sunday ham with this glaze—and I've done it that same way from then on. Since my husband made his career in the Air Force, we spent years in the city or living in close quarters.

(The rise and set of the sun, silhouetting the mountains in the distance, is breathtaking.) Our children are 17 and 11.
