Meet the Cook: I've been making this one-dish meal for more than 30 years. The original recipe called for a single can of sauerkraut - but that wasn't enough for us! My husband (we have a grown son) us pastor to two small-town congregations. Among other occasions, I enjoy preparing this for church potlucks. -Marilyn Dietz, White, South Dakota

The "secret ingredient" in this recipe is the applesauce. When everything's cooked up, you wouldn't know it's in there...yet the taste's just a bit sweeter. My mother and grandmother once ran a beanery for a train crew. That inspired a lot of my cooking. In fact, I adapted this recipe from one of theirs. Luckily for me, my husband likes to eat what I fix as much as I like to cook it! He and I have three children, all now grown, and six grandchildren.

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!

It was an abundance of dill in my garden that led me to try this. My family liked the taste so much that, from then on, I made my cabbage rolls with dill. My husband and I have seven children, ranging in age from 36 to 17.

Meet the Cook: Even before it got cold outside last fall, my husband had asked me to make this stew twice. In fact, here at home, our name for it is "Tom's Favorite Stew". We're the parents of two children - a 9-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl. -Linda Schwarz, Bertrand, Nebraska

As a new bride, I came across the original version of this recipe in a newspaper. I changed it around some and tried it out on my groom. It became a family favorite—not to mention a great easy main course for unexpected company! With our children both grown, my husband's still my "guinea pig". I love to experiment with new dishes...family and friends say I never follow a recipe!

When I had to make a dinner with Mennonite theme, I came up with this meaty main dish. Most often, I serve it with salad, soup and bread. The apple juice gives the pork a wonderful flavor, and the cabbage taste isn't too strong. My husband and I have two grown children. We raise corn and soybeans and feed out cattle here, plus we also grow specialty-cut fresh flowers.

Meet the Cook: I've enjoyed cooking ever since I was very young. This recipe's one I spotted in a local hospital auxiliary cookbook. When I gave it a try, my husband loved it, and I have had lots of compliments from the guests I've served it to, too. Our children are 4 and 3. Calvin is a logger, but besides we're seeing what our luck's like in raising thoroughbred horses here on our 160-acre farm. -Brenda Read, Burns Lake, British Columbia
