My mom loves quiche, so for Mother's Day one year I created my own quiche recipe for her. I've been making it ever since. All it takes is a trip to the farmers market. If you have the ingredients, make the crust from scratch. —Yanique Douglas, Waynesboro, Pennsylvania
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.

I love this delicious recipe because it includes three of my favorite locally produced foods—ham, asparagus and cheese. Prepared with leftover Easter ham and fresh asparagus, these rolls make an excellent springtime meal.
Nothing says Mother’s Day like a quiche. The buttery crust and fresh fillings—in this case, spring favorites asparagus, mushrooms and onion—show Mom how much you care. But don’t be intimidated: A super-easy refrigerated pastry makes this recipe a cinch to put together. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
Walking on egg shells first thing in the morning is so, well, not a good start to the day. That's why making breakfast the night before (and cleaning it up) is a brilliant plan. Breakfast Strata changes easily when you switch to brown-and-serve sausage links, diced cooked ham or diced cooked bacon. Use Swiss or Monterey Jack if you're not a cheddar fan, and bread variations from herbed breads to sourdough. —Debbie Johnson, Centertown, Missouri
When my husband and I first tasted this delicious ham, we were surprised to learn that the sauce included horseradish. That secret ingredient definitely is the key to its tangy taste. I serve it for Easter and Christmas.
Sweet and spicy ingredients combine in a fruity glaze to top this delightful ham, which was one of my mom's specialties. Our family enjoyed it many times for Easter. The horseradish and dry mustard in the glaze add delicious zip to the tender ham slices.

A dear friend shared the recipe for this tender ham with me. I've taken it to reunions, weddings, graduations, baptisms, holiday gatherings and more. It's a delicious way to please a crowd. The cranberry sauce adds flavor and color.
Tired of mixing up messy glazes to put on ham, I tried this simple recipe a few years ago. Young and old alike complimented me on the lovely, sweet and juicy ham - and I've prepared it this way ever since.
