When I was a girl during the Depression, we had enough cabbages to sink a ship! This was a family favorite my mother made often.
After I was married, I served these potatoes to family and friends as a side dish to pork. I still make them for potlucks (I attend two of them a month), and everyone likes them.
I have three grown children—plus five grandchildren whom I keep supplied with frozen yogurt and cookies!
Cheryl Landis of Honey Brook, Pennsylvania prepares a picture-perfect dinner for two...without a lot of work. She seasons chicken and vegetables with sage and dill, then wraps them in aluminum foil, so everything grills together and cleanup is a snap.
THE ADDITION of carrots and green pepper makes this a colorful dish, which also grabs attention at a potluck. (For these occasions, I double the recipe).
This casserole is also great when you need to prepare a dish ahead of time. All you need to do is bake it before serving.

Everyone in my family hunts, so we have an abundance of game. This recipe also works well with wild turkey or grouse and even with chicken if you prefer. I love to make this dish on special occasions and for guests.
This is a special side dish my mother liked to serve at church dinners. She was recognized by family and friends as an outstanding cook. It's a pleasure to share her recipe with you. —Nancy Frank, Ariel, Pennsylvania
Leaving the tender skins on the spuds not only saves time, it sparks the taste and adds color to these hearty mashed potatoes. They're perfect with the pork roast and versatile enough to go well with other entrees.
"THE SWEET TASTE of the glaze not only enhances these carrots, but it is very compatible with the rest of the meal. Another great thing about this vegetable dish is that it adds a nice colorful touch to the table. Whenever Mom fixed this dish I was never disappointed!"
I love making potato dishes during the holidays. Everyone will fall in love with these tender spuds that bake in a creamy sauce and are perfectly seasoned with rosemary and garlic.—Tamra Duncan, Castle, Oklahoma
Be sure to leave room on the plate for light and creamy casserole. It's dressed up with green onions and melted cheddar cheese and gets its rich texture from the addition of reduced-fat sour cream. Donna Noel - Gray, Maine
