Honey Bun Cake – Cinnamon Sugar Filling and Honey Glaze

Honey Bun Cake

As far a packaged snacks from my childhood go, Honey Buns and Nutty Bars were definitely my favorite. I had heard of honey bun cake, so I decided to give it a try. When I started looking for a great recipe for this, I realized that none of them actually had honey. I also notice that all of them used a box cake mix. There is absolutely nothing wrong with using a cake mix, but I wanted to have a recipe from scratch, so here it is! Now it’s time to get to work on a Nutty Bar dessert!

Marinated Pork Tenderloin with Glaze


Pork tenderloin is one of those things, to me, that can either be delicious or dry and bland.  I find that a lot of recipes end up being the latter.  I honestly shy away from making both pork tenderloin and pork chops most of the time, because I feel like they usually leave something to be desired.  After coming up with a pork chop recipe that I was very happy with, I decided to work on a tenderloin recipe as well.  This recipe is actually loosely based on our favorite way to have deer tenderloin.  I changed it up a little, and we were very happy with the results!

Spiral Ham with a brown sugar, honey and dijon glaze.

The first time I hosted an Easter brunch at my house, I was terrified because I had never prepared a ham. It has always been one of those things that my Nanny took care of, and she does it so well that there really isn’t a need for anyone else to know how. After we moved out of state though, we started hosting different holidays at our house and I had to learn quickly. I found a recipe similar to this one online somewhere, and it has evolved into this Spiral Ham with a Brown Sugar, Honey & Dijon Glaze.
