Only a microwave, a toaster oven and whatever supplies I could lug from our Lazy Cook Crazy Cook headquarters kitchen. We both stepped up to the plate.  I can’t lie – the Lazy Cook’s microwave casserole was, uh, how shall I say this?  It was less than mouth-watering to look at.  But she’s lazy, whatta ya want?  Watch the magic unfold and let us know what you think!

The Lazy Cook and Crazy Cook hammed it up over the holidays, with two tantalizing takes on left-over Kentucky Legend ham.  While the Lazy Cook did put whole slices of ham into the blender – yes, she did – the Crazy Cook admits that her split pea and ham soup was not bad at all!  The Crazy Cook had some fun with a festive frittata, featuring diced ham, sauteed red peppers and onion and a bit of cheese.  If you have some holiday ham in your fridge, put it to delicious use with one of these recipes!  And if you don’t – why not bake a whole or half ham just so you have left-overs?  There are endless outlets for it, from omelets to mac ‘n cheese to salads to sandwiches.  A very happy and “hammy” new year to you!
