Easter Holiday & new recipe

Hope everyone had a great Easter!  It was my little mans 1st Easter. I wanted everything to be perfect and memorable.  The entire day was fun filled with visiting family and playing with all his new gifts from the Easter bunny. 
The only part that wasn’t perfect this Easter was some of my cooking. Have you ever made a recipe that didn’t turn out as great as you wanted?  Well that happened to me!  I was attempting to make Paula Deen Baked French Toast this recipe looked so good and I never tried baked french toast before. Well it was a complete fail!  I followed the recipe exactly but the bread stayed soggy and  I have texture issue with foods and soggy bread is one of them. So I was boring and made regular french toast instead.  Then I was going to make deviled eggs.  I boiled my eggs and was about to get them prepared.  I knew it was a bad sign when I had a hard time peeling the egg shell off.  Then I cut them open and they were not completely cooked all the way.  So long story short I wasted 2 dozen eggs this weekend.  At least the two main courses turned out well that night.  The ham and the dessert! They were awesome. Recipes to come so stay tuned!
Since we have a lot of leftover ham in the fridge I was trying to find a recipe to make.  I gave my husband a few options and this is the one he picked.  Im glad to because it was delicious!  I was a little skeptical at first but it will be added to my list of approved meals to make again. LOL

Cheddar Ranch Ham Braid

1.5 cups of cooked ham
1 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 chopped white onion
1.5 cups cheddar cheese
1 Tbsp parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
3 Tbsp Ranch Dressing
1 roll Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Unroll crescent rolls and push seams together creating on big sheet of dough.  With a knife make 1″ wide strips towards the middle making sure to cut along the long sides.  Make sure you leave a 3″ wide strip down the center of the dough. Mix together the first 7 ingredients. Spread the mixture down the center of the dough.  Fold the side strips into the middle.  Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown on top.  Serve with a little extra ranch on top.

My notes:
I would assemble it on a cookie sheet. Mine got destroyed moving it over to the cookie sheet.
