Continuing Holiday Traditions with HoneyBaked Ham

One of my family's favorite holiday traditions is to have a big Christmas dinner. The tradition will continue this year with the help of HoneyBaked Ham. @honeybaked #HoneyBakedMoments #ad

This is a sponsored post in partnership with The Network Niche Influencer Agency and HoneyBaked Ham.


Christmas, to me, has always meant two things: family and good food.  When I was a little girl, my family would make the trek every year from Washington DC ( our home) to Alabama where my parents family lived. It was our biggest trip of the year and I always looked forward to it. Not just because it was Christmas time and Santa was coming, but because I would get to see cousins and Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles.

And there would be FOOD.


My family treats Christmas like most people do Thanksgiving. WE COOK. I have vivid memories as a child of my Grandmother mother and Aunt staying up all night chopping and baking and minding pots. I would go to bed smelling the wonderful smells and spices while waiting for Santa to come.

Every year, there is Turkey, and Collard Greens and Mac and Cheese and pies and cakes and potato salad and dressing corn casserole, sweet potatoes……

And Ham.

There is always a Ham

In the last few years, the task has gradually fallen on me, to cook ALL THE THINGS( except pie. I don’t do pie), and this year won’t be any different. Last year, Christmas was hosted at my home, but this year, we will be traveling back to Washington DC, since my brother finally got a house big enough for all of us, and the Christmas Eve ritual of cooking all the food will continue.

With all the traveling and arriving on Christmas Eve, we are going to be very busy and a few things won’t get cooked.

But, like I said before…there will be ham.

This year, that Ham will be from the HoneyBaked Ham store because with all the traveling and arriving on Christmas Eve, there will be no time to cook both a ham AND a Turkey! But the wonderful thing about a HoneyBaked Ham is that wonderful taste of home that will make our Christmas Dinner complete.

I love a HoneyBaked ham! It’s spiral sliced and finished with the sweet, crunchy glaze that has set HoneyBaked Ham apart for generations…….


HoneyBaked ham handcrafted premium hams are smoked, spiral sliced and finsihed with a sweet crunchy glaze!


HoneyBaked Ham for your holiday dinner is the perfect solution so you don't spend your whole day cooking!


Having that HoneyBaked Ham is going to allow me to not spend half of Christmas day in the kitchen, and more time with my family! I can’t wait!

    The photos of your ham makes me so hungry. I’ll try to find a recipe and make one for myself or better yet i’ll just buy one at the store!

    We always do ham for the christmas since turkey is for Thanksgiving. Plus I love all the many meals I get out of the leftover ham. Always a winner in my household.

    I serve a ham on Thanksgiving and it’s always so delicious! On Christmas Day we grill steaks. I would love a Honeybaked Ham for Christmas Eve. We always have soup and sandwiches.

    I love a good honey baked ham myself. As I do not usually prepare Christmas dinner for me and my family, I usually don’t get the choice of what kind of food gets served, though. That’s okay. I hate cooking even worse than not getting a honey baked ham.

    I really enjoy Honey Bake Hams, but I find it interesting that I don’t think about the hams until the holiday times. I bet this time of the year is probably the busiest.

    We cook and we eat! We cook and we eat. And I bake. This is my favorite time of year. I’m planning to celebrate like it’s a holiday every month in 2017. It’s good for the soul. As for the ham, I can still remember the first time I had a honey baked ham. OMG! I look forward to eat every holiday season.

    We tend to gravitate back to my maternal Grandma’s recipes during Christmas. Her stack cake, rum cake, cornbread stuffing, etc., are the foods that always mean Christmas dinner even though she’s been gone over 25 years.
