Trying out new recipes is such a "passion" of mine that my husband sometimes will ask to have something for dinner that he's actually seen before! My Creole-Stuffed Turkey originated when my sister from Texas and her family—who love Southern cooking—were here one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept coming back for another serving...and we ended up stuffed, too.

My husband is a former member of the Air Force's Thunderbird team, and I developed this recipe after he invited the whole team to our house on short notice for an informal dinner.

Gumbo is one of dishes that helped make the Creole-Cajun cuisine of Louisiana so famous. We live across the border in Texas and can't get enough of this traditional Cajun version featuring okra, shrimp, spicy seasonings and the holy trinity of onions, green peppers and celery. This recipe calls for seafood, but you could also use chicken, duck or sausage. —Ruth Aubey, San Antonio, Texas

"MOTHER'S SECRET in preparing this recipe was to butter the fish first before dusting it with flour. That seals in the moisture of the fish, which makes it succulent and absolutely delicious."

I've carried on cooking these traditional Dutch recipes and intend to pass them on to my daughter. They keep fresh my childhood memories of carefree times filled with the warmth and love of home!
