Meet the Cook: As soon as I was old enough to stand on a chair, I started cooking. This recipe came from my sister-in-law. It's a favorite at our large family gatherings.
Our five children are grown. My husband and I have six grandchildren.

Whether served warm or cold, this moist garlicky loaf from Sue Dodd of Friendsville, Tennessee is a terrific way to round out a meal. "Leftover slices also make good salad croutons," she says. "Just cube them and brown them in a little butter in a skillet."
