Italian Green Beans

When I was first married, I wasn't a great cook. Twenty years later, I have many dishes I'm proud of, including this family favorite. Basil, oregano and Romano cheese give these Italian Green Beans their Italian accent. I serve them with broiled steak, pork roast, lamb chops or pork chops. —Andrea Ibzag, Gordon, Wisconsin

Sweet Potatoes and Parsnips

Allspice, garlic and sweet onion season roasted Sweet Potatoes and Parsnips in this hearty harvesttime dish. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

Bringing Home Baby Carrots

Carrots cooked in apple juice and honey are a tasty, sweet accompaniment to the chicken casserole. Of course, I used baby carrots in this recipe for my theme menu. The word does double duty in the title for this dish. —Ame Andrews, Little Rock, Arkansas

Autumn Fruit Salad

I've made this recipe for special dinners all through my 46 married years, and it's always been a hit. My sister worked for a farm wife during the late '30s and early '40s, and she got this recipe for Autumn Fruit Salad from her. It's especially delicious when the apples are freshly picked, and it adds wonderful color to any table! —Kathryn Booher, Laguna Hills, California

Lemon-Scented Broccoli

If you do not like broccoli, you might change your mind after tasting this festive dish. Lemon-Scented Broccoli is simple yet elegant with a delightful lemon sauce. —Dorothy Pritchell, Wills Point, Texas
