A simple rice salad in a café inspired thoughts of adding Indian spices and chutney to this dish. To fire things up, mix in a small amount of hot chili oil, tasting carefully as you go. —Brooke Martin, Greenfield, Minnesota
There are lemon trees in our backyard, so I'm always on the prowl for new ways to use the fruit. When we shared some of our homegrown citrus with neighborsCanadians who were spending the winter herethe wife "repaid" us by giving us this recipe!
The curd keeps well, and it can be used for any meal. My husband likes it on waffles and toast for breakfast, but it's also a great dessert topping on plain cake or ice cream.
I don't work outside the home, and Herb's retired from the Soil Conservation Service. That leaves me plenty of time to try out new recipes! All told, we have four grown children and seven grandchildren. —Jean Gaines, Bullhead City, Arizona
This is a special recipe my whole family likes. Every time they visit and I make Ham Balls, they're all smiles. When I take this to potluck meals, I'm always asked to share the recipe. It's very appropriate for my region, too, since Iowa farmers raise prize-winning pigs and cattle.
Mention pork spareribs to any Southerner, and barbecue will almost always come to mind. This recipe is a favorite with my family. Who don't you try it and see if it doesn't become one of your family's favorites?
A chunky chutney like this one makes a great gift for friends and neighbors. I give them the chutney in a decorated jar with a package of cream cheese and a box of crackers. It makes a lovely snack and is just as good alongside a main dish.
There always seems to be a glut of zucchini...with every gardener having more than he or she can use! So I have spent lots of time looking for different uses for zucchini. One day I was thinking of my homemade chutney and suddenly decided to use zucchini in it. Now we serve it with almost anything - hot dogs, roast beef, chicken, as a sandwich spread - you name it.
I have three small children and I'm always trying new meat loaf recipes. This recipe is something I developed, and it's one of the first meat loaves that my kids really went for. See if your kids like it, too!
