Tenderloin with Creamy Garlic Sauce

Served with green beans, garlic mashed potatoes and seven-layer salad, this is the main course at my family's annual Christmas gathering. Even those who aren't fond of meat comment on its tenderness and flavor. Likely, since garlic goes well with everything, the sauce'd be good with pork or poultry besides. My husband and I have a 16-year-old son and a 15-year-old daughter. -Beth Taylor, Chapin, South Carolina

I'VE never shared this recipe before, even with members of my own family. I use it only for special occasions such as Christmas. I found the recipe in the first real good cookbook I owned, and my six children love it. I've also been inspired to enter cooking contests and have won several times. -Mary Dunphy, Stephenville, Newfoundland

If you think Thanksgiving turkey tastes good as a leftover, try this. The ham's wonderful served cold on a bun with hot or cold relish spooned on the top. The meat can be slices and cooked up in a soup as well or added to a green bean casserole. The only problem I've had is having leftovers to begin with! -Vicki Tasker, Oakland, Maryland

Home-Style Roast Beef

A very moist roast, this gains richness from the gravy, and the bacon gives it a somewhat different taste. For variety, you can cube the roast and serve it over rice with gravy...or cube and mix it with noodles, gravy and vegetables if you'd like to make it into a casserole. My husband and I have a son, 15. -Sandra Furman-Krajewski, Amsterdam, New York

My husband and I entertain most weekends, and to me the easiest way of serving a crowd is a buffet. This dish - a change of pace from turkey during the holidays - can be put together the night before, then baked the following day. -Kathy Houchen, Waldorf, Maryland
