I developed this bread to celebrate our two favorite holidays, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. Try it with flavored butters, and use leftovers for French toast or sandwiches. —Sara Mellas, Hartford, Connecticut
This appetizer is more creative than a veggie platter and healthier than chips and dip. I often make it for my family to snack on, and it's a great recipe for the kids to help with. —Christine Mitchell, Glendora, California
My family loves perogies, so I decided to create my own version. I took these to a Christmas party and they won rave reviews. When we left the party, I took home an empty pan—not a crumb to be found. —Kim Wallace, Dover, Ohio
A friend brought this colorful bean dish to my house for a church circle potluck dinner. As soon as I tasted these slightly sweet baked beans, I had to have the recipe. I've served this and shared the recipe many times since.
-Jean Cantner, Boston, Virginia
A friend who does a lot of catering fixed this salad for our staff Christmas party several years ago, and we all asked for the recipe. The unexpected sweet-salty mix and lovely dressing make it a hit with everyone. —Arlene Muller, Kingwood, Texas
My family loves the fragrance of these rolls as they bake, and each person has come to expect them whenever I make a special meal. After that meal, these rolls can be easily reheated and "freshened." Just pop them in the microwave, or put them in a moistened paper bag and then place the bag in an oven on low heat. —Anna Baker, Blaine, Washington
