Years ago, when bakeries in my Midwestern hometown made pasties, people scrambled to get there before they were all gone. Now I make my own...filled with meat, potatoes and vegetables, they make a complete meal and are great for picnics or potlucks. —Gayle Lewis Yucaipa, California

Festive Ham Glaze

Festive Ham Glaze

As long as I can remember, my favorite room's been the kitchen. My glaze dates back to shortly after my husband (of 23 years now) and I were married. 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. When he retired, we decided to plant roots here where we could experience the daily wonder of God's creation. (The rise and set of the sun, silhouetting the mountains in the distance, is breathtaking.) Our children are 17 and 11.
