Trying out new recipes is such a "passion" of mine that my husband sometimes will ask to have something for dinner that he's actually seen before! My Creole-Stuffed Turkey originated when my sister from Texas and her family—who love Southern cooking—were here one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept coming back for another serving...and we ended up stuffed, too.

I quickly fell for this fantastic sweet-and-sour brisket when I had it at a family wedding reception. Since the meat needs to be refrigerated overnight after it bakes, it is a great make-ahead entree.

Served with green beans, garlic mashed potatoes and seven-layer salad, this is the main course at my family's annual Christmas gathering. Even those who aren't fond of meat comment on its tenderness and flavor. Likely, since garlic goes well with everything, the sauce'd be good with pork or poultry besides. My husband and I have a 16-year-old son and a 15-year-old daughter. -Beth Taylor, Chapin, South Carolina
