Chobani Greek Yogurt Lime Flavored

 

 

 

 

*I used lime flavored Chobani Greek Yogurt.

(Someone please tell Chobani that KEY limes are yellow, not green!!  Slip-ups like that are an insult to Floridians.)

This Fluffy Lime Pie is a pretty green color and would be a great dessert to serve for St. Patrick’s Day or Christmas.

Citrus Glazed Yams

Citrus Glazed Yams

Citrus Glazed yams make a great side dish for holidays and goes well with ham, pork roasts, roasted chicken and turkey.  The glaze does double duty and can be used as a glaze for ham.  You can also top with pecans or your favorite chopped nuts.

Yam Patties (in the freezer section at the grocery store) OR medium sized sweet potatoes, baked, cooled, skins removed and sliced.
1/2 cup pecan halves
1 cup orange juice
2 heaping tablespoons orange marmalade
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Arrange the sweet potato or yam slices in a lightly oiled baking dish.  Top with pecans.

Combine orange juice and next 5 ingredients in a small saucepan, stirring well.  Bring to a boil.  Boil until thickened, about a minute.  Remove from heat.  Stir in vanilla.  Spoon citrus glaze over the potatoes.  Bake, uncovered in a 350º F oven for 30 – 45 minutes or until glaze is thickened.  Makes 10 servings.

Citrus Glazed Yams

Citrus Glazed Ham

Citrus Glazed Ham

Citrus Glazed Ham

This zesty glaze makes a fully cooked spiral sliced ham sweet and sunny.  Use the same glaze as for Citrus Glazed Yams.

1 cup orange juice
2 heaping tablespoons orange marmalade
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine orange juice and next 5 ingredients in a small saucepan, stirring well.  Bring to a boil.  Boil until thickened, about a minute.  Remove from heat.  Stir in vanilla.

Place a fully cooked sliced ham in a baking dish.  Pour the glaze over, fanning out the ham slices to get some glaze between the slices of ham.

Bake in a 350º F oven for about 40 minutes, just until the ham is heated all the way through and the glaze is bubbly and thickened.
