Meet the Cook: At the summer tourist resort in Ontario my husband and I operate, we prepare all the meals for our guests. So I'm always trying out new recipes. Some of my favorites are from my CW issues. We have two children, 22 and 18. -Sheree Swistun, Winnipeg, Manitoba

If a recipe has pumpkin in it, it's likely I'll enjoy it! This one resulted when I added my favorite key ingredient to an old recipe for spice cake that I had. Everyone who's tried it has enjoyed it. —Roberta Peck, Fort Hill, Pennsylvania

I love to pick strawberries in the morning, then make this shortcake in the afternoon. This pretty dessert really hits the spot on a hot summer day.

This recipe's been in our family for years, but these cupcakes still go quick each time I make them. So I always double or triple the ingredients! You'll likely see what I mean if you make them at your place—I can't remember anyone who's tried them for the first time not asking for seconds.

I make this delicious apple cake with the apples we get from a local orchard. Growers here in Ohio produce a wide variety of apples, and they're all good!

I wish I could tell you this cake is a "keeper"...but in our family it never lasts long enough for me to find out! I prefer to use Cortland apples when I bake this cake, but any firm baking apple will work.

Caramel Pudding Cake

This recipe dates back to the 1800s. It was a favorite of my father's and is now a hit with a husband. It works especially well when you've had a busy day and need to make a dessert pronto!

MY FAMILY doesn't care for fruitcake, but we like this modified version. It's similar to a date-nut bread and we enjoy it with the butter sauce. It's really moist and delicious. I'm glad a friend shared this recipe with me many years ago. —Mrs. C. Cunningham Astoria, New York

A plain purchased pound cake's at the heart of the elegant-looking dessert. I've used angel food cake, cupcakes, doughnuts and even a stack of cookies as the base in place of the pound cake. Top it off with a fun selection of sundae makings—nuts, orange rinds, cherries, etc.—Nova MacIssac, Souris, Prince Edward Island
