Showcase asparagus when you dress it in fresh rosemary and red potatoes for an earthy counterpoint to the fresh, green spears. Add minced garlic and you get a gorgeous, flavorful side dish. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
Swiss cheese lends distinctive flavor to this rich, creamy potato casserole. Since it tastes wonderful and looks so lovely, this side dish is perfect for serving company or as part of a special holiday meal.
I won grand champion honors in a potato festival baking contest with this moist chocolate cake. The icing recipe can be doubled for real sweet tooths. A great-grandma, I've spent over 85 years on the farm.
Meet the Cook: The day I first made this, we'd invited a neighbor - a bachelor farmer - over, and I wanted to fix something hearty. It was a hit instantly. These days, our three sons (17, 16 and 13) enjoy it as a change from regular mashed potatoes. We've found that it's best served with beef...either with or without gravy.

From St. Louis, Missouri, Denise Dowd shares this mouthwatering meal-in-one. We tripled the number of rosemary-seasoned tenderloins, so you can serve one with the potatoes for a family dinner, then save the leftover pork for the next two recipes.
