Ham in an Instant Pot

Ingredients for Glaze:

Ham in an Instant Pot

·         1/2 cup Maple Syrup

·         1/2 cup Honey

·         1/4 cup Brown Sugar

·         2 Tablespoons Orange Juice

·         1 teaspoon Cinnamon

·         1 teaspoon Nutmeg

·         (Our ham came with a glaze packet – we used it!)

·         1 Bone-In Ham – ours was also spiral sliced.

Instructions

1.      Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium and mix the ingredients well

2.      Place the ham in a pressure cooker, add 1 ½ cups of apple juice.  Cook for 13 minutes according to your cooker’s guidelines and use a quick release.

3.      Transfer the ham to an oven safe dish and baste liberally with the glaze

4.      Under a broiler, allow the glaze to caramelize and just slightly char on the edges (this will happen quickly)  For us, it was about 1 minute.

Jodi’s Easy Potato Salad Jodi’s Easy Potato Salad 

  • 4-5 cans of potatoes
  • 4 boiled eggs, cooled and peeled
  • a splash of white vinegar
  • salt
  • onion powder
  • mayonnaise

Slice up and drain the potatoes in a colander, and put in a big pot, then warm them (no water in pot!). In a separate bowl, put the egg yolks and mash them a little.  Add a splash of vinegar and stir. Transfer that yolk mixture into the pot with warm potatoes.   Add salt (to taste) and the chopped up egg whites, and mayo.  Use your eye to decide how much mayo.  Carefully stir it.  The light yellow color comes from the yolks – no mustard in the salad.   It’s mild and creamy.

You can add relish if you’d like.  My mother in law doesn’t. This is the basic, simple recipe.  Serve warm or chilled.

The Potato Salad Trick that Jodi got from her mother-in-law (Murphy’s Mom) is…
Used CANNED potatoes.  Yes, Jodi was also hesitant at first, but it saves so much time and is still delicious! You warm the potatoes in a pot and then drain the water and make the potato salad!

Best tastin’ baked beans

1 lb bacon, fried and crumbled
1 large can of Campbell’s Pork and Beans
1 small box of brown sugar
ketchup – to taste

Fry 1 lb of bacon, cool the bacon and break into pieces.  Save the bacon grease in the frying pan.  Pour the can of pork and beans into the grease.  Also stir in a small box of brown sugar.  Add a little ketchup and then stir in the bacon pieces. Simmer for about 10 minutes.  Serve and enjoy the sweet/salty side!

 

Tater Tot Casserole

(Sam’s family loves this one!)
1 lb ground pork breakfast sausage
1/2 pack of bacon (so 1/2 lb)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
4 eggs
2 lbs tater tots

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook bacon in a skillet as you usually do.  Place bacon on paper towels to get most of the grease off  and crumble. Place sausage in a large, deep skillet.  Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown.  Drain and remove sausage from skillet.  Spread sausage and crumbled bacon evenly in the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan.  Spread cheese over sausage and bacon. In a large bowl, beat together milk and eggs.  Pour over cheese (may be refrigerated overnight at this point). Top with tater tots. Bake in preheated overn for 35 to 45 minutes.  Cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

 

Not Really Cole Slaw

2 (3oz) pkgs beef flavored ramen noodles, uncooked
1/2 c sugar
1/3 c vegetable oil
1/4 c cider vinegar

1/4 cup water
1 (16 oz) pkg cole slaw
1 cup peanuts

Combine seasoning packets from ramen noodles, sugar, oil, vinegar and water in large bowl. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add slaw. Crumble ramen noodles and add to slaw mixture; toss to coat. Stir in peanuts and sunflower seeds just before serving.

You should let this sit in the refrigerator a couple hours before serving (tastes better that way), but it still tastes great right after you make it.

Peanut Butter PieRECIPE: Peanut Butter Pie

1 chocolate graham cracker crust
8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
3 Tbps peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup Cool Whip

TOPPING

1 cup Cool Whip
1 cup powdered sugar
M&Ms, chocolate chips or chocolate shavings

Blend cream cheese and peanut butter.  Add powdered sugar and blend well.  Blend in Cool Whip.  Pour into chocolate crust.  Mix Cool Whip and powdered sugar together for topping and spread on pie.  Decorate with M&Ms, chocolate chips or chocolate shavings.  Refrigerate a bit before serving.

 

Homemade Peanut Butter EggsHomemade Peanut Butter Eggs

  • 3 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1½ cups creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup butter or margarine melted
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1-2 Bags milk chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons shortening

 

Beat together powdered sugar, peanut butter, and butter together. At this point the dough will be crumbly. Add two tablespoons of milk and continue to beat together until the dough softens. If the dough still seems crumbly that is ok.

On a floured surface, roll the dough out to desired thickness. About ½ thickness. You can use egg cookie cutters or with a knife, shape the dough to look like eggs.

Place eggs on a cookie sheet and put in the freezer for an hour.

When you are ready to dip them, add the chocolate and 1 Tbsp shortening in a microwave and melt 30 seconds at a time. Stirring it after every 30 seconds and being careful not to cook the chocolate to burn.

Dip each egg in chocolate. I used a spoon to help cover in the chocolate. Place them on wax paper to set.

If more chocolate is needed, melt the second bag with the shortening. Enjoy!

*Makes approx 20 eggs

How to Clean Your Phone

By | MS&J Feed | No Comments

From CNET:

Disinfect your phone: Wipes, not pure alcohol

amsung added to its website you can use an alcohol-based solution (70%) and apply it to your phone with a microfiber cloth.

 

Some websites suggest creating a mix of alcohol and water yourself, but it’s crucial to get the concentration right. Get it wrong and you could damage your phone. The safest bet is to use disinfectant wipes that contain 70% isopropyl alcohol to clean your phone screen.

 

Another option for day-to-day cleaning is investing in a UV light, such as PhoneSoap. This UV light company claims to kill 99.99% of germs and banishes bacteria. As far as we know, it hasn’t been tested in relation to this strain of coronavirus.
