Count on hearty Spoon Bread Tamale Bake and refreshing Orange Cream Fruit Salad for a great dinner on busy nights.

"This is a favorite comfort food for my family on winter nights—and all year round! Make Spoon Bread Tamale Bake ahead for convenience, then pop it in the oven to bake about an hour before dinner," suggests Marjorie Mersereau of Corvallis, Oregon.

"My son calls this great-tasting Orange Cream Fruit Salad 'awesome,' and it was an instant hit with my family," says Sheila Eggert of Elgin, Illinois. "I love that it's virtually fat-free and a big hit at brunches and potlucks!"
