Ham and Easter are synonymous with each other, right?  Every Easter I make a ham.  Once I bought what I call a “regular” ham from the store.  It was gelatinous, and rubbery, and needless to say it wasn’t a happy meal on Easter.  Then I started buying hams from the Honey Baked Ham store, and …

I first had garlic knots about 13 years ago while at a friend’s house in Corona.  We ordered pizza from a local joint and we were told we just had to try these garlic knots.  Well, I fell in love!  Me and the knot became fast friends, but it took years until I figured out …
