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.
This recipe is a dandy one to have on hand! You can make it ahead or make it and freeze it. It can also bake while you're attending church, then be ready for a brunch with friends afterward.
Our town's small...but it's full of community spirit! We have two boys in college and a girl in high school.
To be truthful, asparagus is my least favorite vegetable. But I make an exception with this recipe my mom and I came up with together. The ham and cheese really lend a tasty difference.
Now that our parents are retired, my brothers and I have taken over the family farm. We milk 200 Holsteins.
