My fiance and I like to hunt for wild asparagus come the spring. He's not much of a vegetable eaterbut when I roll up these easy, nutritious appetizers, he can't get enough of them. The roll-ups are ideal for children toothey're a fun way to "disguise" vegetables they usually turn down!
I "inherited" this recipe from the family that owned the building where I rented my first apartment. It's one of my favorites and very easy to prepare. It's great for company because you can mix the loaf in advance, then simply pour on the sauce before putting it in the oven...it's the sauce that makes it so good!
Apricot Ham Rolls, from Carolyn Hannay of Antioch, Tennessee, are both speedy and special. "This is the kind of hearty dish we 10 kids would devour after doing chores on our parents' farm," Carolyn recalls. "Mom always had lots of hungry mouths to appreciate her good food. When I'm short on cooking time, I rely on this tasty recipe."
I work full-time, but I love to cookso I need to rely on meals that are wholesome and fast. This dish deliciously combines both treats! Plus, I like the fact that it doesn't dirty a pile of pots and pans.Helen Vail, Glenside, Pennsylvania
WHEN Mother wanted to serve ham, she went to the smokehouse, took one down from the rafters and sliced off as much as was needed. The rest was hung up again.
This recipe is great if you use real smoked ham with no water added. When Mother prepared it this way, the flavor was especially sweet and buttery.

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?
Living in Texas, where summers get warm, I do a lot of cooking on the grill. I think you'll enjoy the one-of-a-kind combination of stuffing and sauce in these zesty chops. —Dianne Gates, Cypress, Texas
