Five ingredients are all you need for this lip-smacking sauce that's ideal over reduced-fat ice cream. "We even like it warm over biscuits with a dash of cinnamon and a dollop of whipped cream," writes Evelyn Gebhardt from Kasilof, Alaska.
This dish makes for a dramatic presentation. I usually take it right from the oven to the table, fill it with peaches and sour cream and serve it with bacon or ham. Whenever I go home, my mom (the best cook I know) asks me to make this. —Nancy Wilkinson, Princeton, New Jersey
My daughter brought this recipe home from school one day, and we loved it. Since then, these pancakes have been a regular part of Sunday morning breakfast, served with maple syrup, flavored syrup or applesauce and a big helping of grits.
When I was a youngster, pine nuts helped me earn a Boy Scout Cooking Merit Badge. I decided on pancakes for my project. The wild combination I put together was good then and still is today.—Ed Horkey, Ahwatukee, Arizona
Dottye Wolf of Rolla, Missouri is on a restricted diet, although her husband is not.
"I often make two different single-serving recipes," Dottye reports. "Yogurt Parfait is a delicious breakfast or luncheon treat, especially with wafers on the side."
I first tried these tasty treats at my sister's house and thought they were the best I'd ever had. They're easy to make, and the fudge frosting tops them off well. When I make them for friends, the recipe is always requested.

I was never a fan of grapefruit until I had it broiled at a Florida restaurant—it was so tangy and delicious! I finally got the recipe and now make it often for husband Ron, myself and our children and grandchildren.

Meet the Cook: With all the eggs our chickens produce, I could make this omelet every day! I guess I consider it to be mostly a festive dish, but you could fix it anytime...including for a light supper.
Growing up in a big family - seven children - of big eaters, I started cooking early. Now, I have a husband who likes to eat! We're the parents of one son, 8, and two daughters, 6 and 4.
