Grandma's Potato Dumplings

Don’t be surprised if you make too many mashed potatoes on purpose. Day-old rolls and leftover spuds are scrumptious the second time around, turned into buttery potato dumplings.—Wendy Stenman

We’re of German heritage, so we love bold flavors. Cheddar and beer make a tangy dip to serve with pretzels, crackers, pumpernickel and brats. Choose a beer that you really enjoy the flavor of, as it will come through in your finished recipe. —Angela Spengler, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

Caraway Beef Roast

Meet the Cook: It seems there aren't many beef roasts that are both extra-special and extra-easy. This one is, though. There have been many Sundays when I've put it in the oven as we're walking out the door to go to church and had no trouble getting it on the table right around noon. Over the years, many men have requested that I copy the recipe for their wives. "I love the gravy!" they'll say. My husband's a farmer, and we have five children - all of them now grown. -Beverly Swanson, Red Oak, Iowa

Spinach Slaw

Spinach Slaw

Served with rolls or homemade bread, this slaw's hearty enough to be a main course, it's also a great side dish—my family especially likes it accompanying steak and corn on the cob. It tastes good with ribs besides. Even people who don't enjoy cabbage like it prepared this way. (I know...my husband, Glen, is one of them!) The honey's sweetness helps with that. Glen works for our local police department, and I work for the fire department. We have a pair of sons, 19 and 6, and a daughter who's 4.
