1. Honey Glazed Ham

Starting with the best first, Honey Glazed Ham is everyone's favorite and this recipe will feed 15. There is nothing more crowd-pleasing than a fresh baked Honey Glazed Ham and it's ready in an hour and a half from start to finish. You'll need 1 (5 pound) ready-to-eat ham, 1/4 cup whole cloves, 1/4 cup dark corn syrup, 2 cups honey, 2/3 cup butter.


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

2. Score ham, and stud with the whole cloves. Place ham in a foil-lined pan.

3. In the top half of a double boiler, heat the corn syrup, honey, and butter. Keep glaze warm while baking the ham.

4. Brush glaze over ham, and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Baste ham every 10 to 15 minutes with the honey glaze. During the last 4 to 5 minutes of baking, turn on broiler to caramelize the glaze. Remove from oven, and let sit a few minutes before serving.

2. Garlic Prime Rib

If you've got a big family to feed, you might consider Garlic Prime Rib for its ability to feed up to 15 people with one roast. This is one of my favorites and again, this is pretty much a universally approved recipe and it's not hard to make. You'll need 1 (10 pound) prime rib roast, 10 cloves minced garlic, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons ground black pepper, 2 teaspoons dried thyme.


1. Place the roast in a roasting pan with the fatty side up. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme. Spread the mixture over the fatty layer of the roast, and let the roast sit out until it is at room temperature, no longer than 1 hour.

2. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).

3. Bake the roast for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and continue roasting for an additional 60 to 75 minutes. The internal temperature of the roast should be at 135 degrees F (57 degrees C) for medium-rare.

4. Allow the roast to rest for 10 or 15 minutes before carving so the meat can retain its juices.

3. Easter Meatloaf

Easter Meatloaf (also known as Czech sekana) and it's a little more difficult to make but the effort is worth it. This is a spin of the popular Meatloaf dish European style, it's also known as Slovak sekanice and Slovenian polnina and should feed around 4 to 5 people. You'll need 1 1/2 pounds veal shoulder, fat removed, cut into very small pieces, but not ground, 3/4 pound pork shoulder, fat removed, cut into very small pieces, but not ground, Salt and pepper to taste, 2 large eggs, 3 stale rolls or 4 slices stale bread, 3/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup diced bacon, 1 large chopped onion,1/2 cup melted lard or bacon grease, and 1 cup stock of choice


1. In a large bowl, mix together 1 1/2 pounds chopped veal, 3/4 pound chopped pork shoulder, salt and pepper to taste, and 2 large eggs.

2. Soak 3 stale rolls or 4 slices stale bread in 3/4 cup milk and squeeze almost dry. Chop the bread and add to meat mixture with half (1/4 cup) of the diced bacon. Fry the remaining 1/4 cup bacon with 1 large chopped onion until caramelized but not burned. Cool completely.

3. Add to meat mixture and mix thoroughly. Fry up a small portion of the mixture and taste it to make sure it is seasoned correctly. Make any adjustments to the rest of the mixture.

4. Heat oven to 350 F. Shape meat mixture into a loaf shape and bake free-form in a roasting pan or in a 9x5-inch loaf pan placed on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Baste top of meatloaf with melted lard or bacon grease.

5. Bake 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer registers 185 degrees. Add stock, as necessary, basting frequently.

4. This is going to be a little more on the lengthy side, but again,

4. Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Fish is also a popular choice for Easter weekend and Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon is one of the tastiest ways to cook salmon. This popular choice has a salmon coated with Dijon-style mustard and seasoned bread crumbs topped with butter. You'll need 4 (4 ounce) fillets salmon, 3 tablespoons prepared Dijon-style mustard, salt, and pepper to taste, 1/4 cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs, 1/4 cup melted butter.


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil. (Wrapping it in foil can also help it cook evenly but is not necessary.)

2. Place salmon skin-side down on foil. Spread a thin layer of mustard on the top of each fillet and season with salt and pepper. Top with breadcrumbs, then drizzle with melted butter.

3. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

5. Roast Leg of Lamb

Last but not least, Roast Leg of Lamb is a tradition in many households and cooking some peeled potatoes around the roast in the pan in a trick that tastes delicious. This delicious roast will feed about 12 people and you'll need 4 cloves sliced garlic, 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, salt to taste, ground black pepper to taste, 5 pounds leg of lamb.


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. Cut slits in the top of the leg of lamb every 3 to 4 inches, deep enough to push slices of garlic down into the meat. Salt and pepper generously all over the top of lamb, place several sprigs of fresh rosemary under and on top of the lamb. Place lamb on roasting pan.

3. Roast in preheated oven until the lamb is cooked to your desired doneness, about 1 3/4 to 2 hours. Do not overcook the lamb, the flavor is best if the meat is still slightly pink. Let rest at least 10 minutes before carving.

As a Christian I have often wonder why we eat PORK, to celebrate the Resurrection for the Son Of GOD.

Since PORK is a prohibited meat by Kosher Laws.

Given we know Jesus was born into a Jewish culture, raised by 2 Jewish parents, in a Jewish community/ culture.

Who grew up to become a Jewish Rabi and likely NEVER would have violated Jewish Kosher laws.

So Isn't it warped and kinda disrespectful?

To make fun of the traitorous jews, who put him on the cross.

Have you read the New Testament?

Jesus basically declared pork and shellfish "clean" while arguing with the PHarisees. Jesus speaks of "purging all meat" and explains it is not what goes INTO a body that defiles him, but what comes OUT of the body (i.e. vile words and actions).

Then in Acts, Peter sees Jesus as he is so hungry he is going into a trance and faced with the unthinkable thought to eat some "Unclean animals." Jesus tells him to kill them and eat, but Peter is at first unwilling, "Lord, let it not be," he protests explaining that he has never eaten any "unclean/unholy" meats. To this Jesus responds, "Let no man say what God has cleansed is unholy."

Yes, Jesus came from a Jewish background, but if you'll notice it's not the prostitutes and thieves he has a "beef" with, rather it's the Pharisees who were entirely legalistic but practiced their religion devoid of the Love of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. In other words, improper application of the Word (which is with God and IS God).

Mark 7:1 Then came together to him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, which came from Jerusalem. 2 And when they saw some of his disciples eat bread with defiled, that is to say, with unwashed, hands, they found fault. 3 For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands oft, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders. 4 And when they come from the market, except they wash, they eat not. And many other things there be, which they have received to hold, as the washing of cups, and pots, brazen vessels, and of tables. 5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him, Why walk not your disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands? 6 He answered and said to them, Well has Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 7 However, in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things you do. 9 And he said to them, Full well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your own tradition. 10 For Moses said, Honor your father and your mother; and, Whoever curses father or mother, let him die the death: 11 But you say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatever you might be profited by me; he shall be free. 12 And you suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; 13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which you have delivered: and many such like things do you. 14 And when he had called all the people to him, he said to them, Listen to me every one of you, and understand: 15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. 16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. 17 And when he was entered into the house from the people, his disciples asked him concerning the parable. 18 And he said to them, Are you so without understanding also? Do you not perceive, that whatever thing from without enters into the man, it cannot defile him; 19 Because it enters not into his heart, but into the belly, and goes out into the draught, purging all meats? 20 And he said, That which comes out of the man, that defiles the man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
