Food

  • Try these twists on your campfire traditions
    There is no hallmark of summer fun quite like a campfire – whether you've gathered some neighbors and friends in your own backyard or you're on a backpacking adventure.
  • Sellers, buyers link regional cheeses with Hoosier wine
    A group of trendy celebrants crowd around a table filled with platters of cut-up cheese and a few open bottles of wine. They sip. They schmooze. They nibble. Occasionally, they exclaim, and not infrequently, they sigh.
  • The brewer’s garden
    You don’t need a garden to succeed as a home brewer, but growing your own ingredients is a flavorful step up. Much of the creativity involved in crafting a custom-made beer starts with the plants you select.

Dash ... we tried it

The recipe reviewed here appears on Page 12 of today’s Dash, a monthly food magazine inserted in The Journal Gazette.

Ham Bites

Preparation: 15 minutes

Cook time: 8 minutes

What we thought: There’s nothing complicated about this dish but that’s what makes it so wonderful. The biscuits, using help from a store mix, come together quickly and the addition of chives and cayenne make them taste homemade. The ham and honey mustard was a pleasing pairing that even the pickiest of holiday guests (and toddlers) seemed to enjoy this weekend.

Make ahead: My husband and I agreed the Ham Bites could easily become breakfast with the addition of scrambled eggs and cheese. I froze some extra biscuits so we can test the theory Christmas morning.
