We eat a lot of chicken at our house, and figuring out different ways to serve it gets challenging. My family went nuts for the cozy maple flavors in this recipe, so now I share it at potlucks, too. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, ON
I gave this sweet-savory chicken salad a little zip with Chinese five-spice powder, which tastes a bit like pumpkin pie spice. Sprinkle some on roasted carrots for an awesome meal. —Lisa Renshaw, Kansas City, Missouri
I love fresh strawberries, and I try to enjoy as many as possible during the season. Because so many strawberry recipes are quite sweet, I wanted to start the meal with something savory, so I came up with strawberries, cheese and good bread.
I CAN remember looking forward to eating this pretty salad when I was a child. It has all the ingredients a child would like. My Grandmother served it during the holidays and on other special occasions and my Mother did the same.
Our Test Kitchen came up with this creamy, lactose-free dessert that could also be used in a parfait, as a filling or as a dip for fruit or pound cake. You'll love the rich chocolaty-mint flavor.
TIP: If you don't care for mint, leave out the extract. For a more mousse-like dessert, stir in some non-dairy topping.
"This recipe has been in our family for nearly 80 years. Our backyard mint patch provided the main ingredient," reports Ruth Bogdanski of Grants Pass, Oregon. "Our gang won't eat lamb without this mint sauce."

"I often make two different single-serving recipes," Dottye reports. "Yogurt Parfait is a delicious breakfast or luncheon treat, especially with wafers on the side."
I dress up strawberry cream cheese with honey and a touch of lemon peel. This creamy creation is perfect for dipping berries, sliced kiwi, cubed melon or most any fruit.—Pat Habiger, Spearville, Kansas
Buttermilk gives a tangy twist to this mild and creamy salad dressing from our home economists. You'll love drizzling it on your fresh greens and vegetables.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
For a nutritious breakfast or snack on the go, try this hearty shake from Norma Gabriel of Mondovi, Wisconsin. "With the banana, yogurt and milk, it's quite filling," she says. "My husband, son and I all enjoy it."
