Double Smoked Ham

Double Smoked Ham

A double smoked ham is the perfect holiday meal.  First, it is delicious!  Second, it is cooked outside on a grill or smoker and as a result you have an open oven inside for all of your side dishes.  Finally, it is fantastic looking and smelling.  This meal is a show stopper and will make your guests’ jaws hit the floor.  Who doesn’t want to have a show stopping centerpiece for their holiday meal?!  This dish utilizes a fully cooked ham that you smoke and reheat on your grill or smoker.  It is so delicious!

Standing Rib Roast

Standing Rib Roast

In the last few weeks since Black Friday, there have been crazy deals on everything from toasters to turkeys.  One ad that we saw had Standing Rib Roasts for $4.99 a pound.  Not too shabby.  So, this year Dana and I thought that we would change things up a bit and cook a Standing Rib Roast for our holiday meal.  It was the best decision that we made.  It was freaking awesome!  Who doesn’t love a huge hunk of meat covered in a fresh herb rub and roasted to perfection!

Cutout Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies

My wife Dana is a great baker.  She also has a great eye for design.  So I have to put it out there, these cookies are all her.  My hands are not steady enough and my decorating ideas are not good enough to make these cookies. However, she was happy to share them with all of you.  So a big thank you to Dana! How awesome do these cookies look? By the way, these sugar cookies are perfection.  They are not too sweet, thus allowing you to coat them in super sweet royal icing.  Plus, they hold up great without overly rising.  Therefore, your cutouts look exactly as they should.
