My husband often volunteers to take meals to folks just home from the hospital or during family emergencies. Because so many people like carrots, I look for new ways to serve them.

I created this recipe a few years ago for a fifth-grade school project. I love being in the kitchen with my mom and helping her with meal preparations. My whole family was impressed with the few additions I made to these potatoes to make them extra tasty.

"I make these potatoes often for my husband and me. They're easy to prepare and have a nice dill flavor," writes Vi Neiding of South Milwaukee, Wisconsin. "We eagerly await the start of farmers market season to get garden-fresh new potatoes."
I sampled this recipe at a 25th anniversary party and was told it was a family favorite, courtesy of a Polish grandmother. I shared the recipe with my sister-in-law’s family and she told me her five-year-old son loved it so much that he would eat it cold for breakfast! Every time our family gathers now, someone brings this dish.
I OFTEN MAKE this easy potato dish when I invite someone over for lunch. It's a nice accompaniment to salads or sandwiches.
This dish always draws complimentary comments when my lunch guest arrives...the aroma of that touch of onion baking with the potatoes whets the appetite.

This comforting blend of sweet potatoes, apples and pecans has a small yield, so you won't end up with a pan of leftovers. Now that our three boys are grown, I cook for just my husband and me.—Marjorie Wilkerson, Dighton, Kansas
This vegetable dish recipe was in my grandmother's collection. At first, I only cooked it on Sundays or special occasions. But my family enjoyed it so much, I make it all the time now.
