There’s no place like home-style when roasting the big bird. Instead of sage stuffing with turkey, stuff this bird with fresh sage and sprigs of thyme. — Beth Jacobson, Taste of Home Magazine, Milwaukee, WI
I received this recipe when we moved to Oklahoma. A going-away party was held for us, and the guests were asked to bring their favorite recipe as a remembrance. The special friend who brought this one has since died, and every time I make it, a flood of wonderful memories fills my heart.
These moist golden hens are a tradition at our house on Christmas Eve. We think the spiced rice stuffing with cinnamon, sweet raisins and honey goes so well with the birds and makes the meal a special one.

I created this entree years ago when a friend gave me some fresh-caught mahi mahi. Shortly after, I entered the recipe in a contest and won! I think you'll agree it's a keeper. —Virginia Anthony, Jacksonville, Florida
Priscilla Gilbert from Indian Harbour Beach, Florida writes, “This is a good hearty salmon dish, quick and simple to prepare. My husband and I love salmon and this is one of our favorites.” It's creamy and classic, nicely seasoned and very rich; this is one dish sure to surprise.
In Galesburg, Illinois, Sue Mackey simmers a flavorful marinara sauce for most of the day. Then shortly before mealtime, she simply adds cooked shrimp, which merely require being heated through. Served over spaghetti, it makes a delicious dressed-up main dish.
The sweet, tangy glaze that complements this ham looks so pretty, and the cranberry flavor pairs well with the meat. It’s been a tradition in my home for as long as I can remember. —Pattie Prescott, Manchester, New Hampshire
