Her family of fishermen keeps Perlene Hoekema of Lynden, Washington supplied with the star ingredient for this well-loved recipe. "Often we catch enough to share and sometimes send some of our delicious Northwest salmon to Michigan for my sister to enjoy," Perlene relates.
This moist baked catfish gets its crisp golden coating from cornflake crumbs. The fillets are nicely seasoned with celery salt, onion powder and paprika. Phyllis Early of Holland, Michigan shared the recipe.
Meet the Cook: This recipe came to me from my mother - it's the kind you request after just one bite! Unlike some quiches, it's also hearty enough that it appeals equally to both woman and men.
Cooking is something that I've always liked. I pore over cookbooks the way other people read novels! In addition, I collect antique kitchen utensils. My husband and I have one son, 12.

This moist tender salmon is a savory treat draped with a smooth creamy dill sauce. "When my daughter served this tempting main dish for dinner, I was surprised to learn how easy the recipe is," says Janet Painter of Three Springs, Pennsylvania.
Tropical fruit lends a summery taste to Mary Beth Harris-Murphee's easy salmon main course. “Make the salsa the night before and serve it with cellophane noodles or jasmine rice for a fast and delicious meal,” she writes from Tyler, Texas.
While the soup simmers, assemble tasty Mozzarella Tuna Melts. Using a mini food processor to chop the celery and onion for the filling helps shave preparation time. Then just pop the sandwiches in the oven.
I'm a real pasta fan and I like fish as well, so I decided to combine the two. When my granddaughters are over, I make this dish in tart tins, so each girl can have her own pie. That works for both pint-size and senior-size appetites.—Mrs. Ruth Lee, Troy, Ontario
