It wouldn't be summer if Mom didn't make lots of these creamy cucumbers. Just a few simple ingredients—mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar and salt—dress up slices of this crisp garden vegetable.

My family loves perogies, so I decided to create my own version. I took these to a Christmas party and they won rave reviews. When we left the party, I took home an empty pan—not a crumb to be found. —Kim Wallace, Dover, Ohio
I save time, use less oil and have moister results when I add jars of baby food fruit to my quick breads. This recipe is a big help if company is coming and you want to make bread for dinner or to have with coffee.

My family loves the fragrance of these rolls as they bake, and each person has come to expect them whenever I make a special meal. After that meal, these rolls can be easily reheated and "freshened." Just pop them in the microwave, or put them in a moistened paper bag and then place the bag in an oven on low heat. —Anna Baker, Blaine, Washington
"My husband and I are trying to eat more oatmeal for its health benefits, but we get tired of having a bowlful every day." Kathy Thompson of Glendale, Kentucky explains. "These moist and fluffy pancakes give us the good grains that we need...and still taste like a treat. We love them with turkey bacon on Sunday morning."
THIS RECIPE is a favorite of mine not only because it's delicious, but because it was given to me by a very dear friend.
I take this dish to many different gatherings and often, get requests for the recipe. It's a wonderful side dish, compatible with any meal.
