Marinated Turkey

When I first fixed this, we were living on a ranch along a river with lots of game. Wild turkey can be dry, but not prepared this way! Of course, it's just as tasty with store-bought turkey. And the gravy it makes is out of this world. I'm a widow with two children, five grandchildren and a great-grandchild.

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.

Ever since I first tried this, I've never made another stuffing. The sausage and pecans really give it a different flavor. Our home is on 20 acres where we have hay and horses—my husband, our two children, (8 and 6) and I ride a lot.

Drizzled with a slightly sweet pineapple sauce, these ham steaks are a delicious, speedy standby for busy nights. It's become a family favorite that I enjoy serving.

I received this recipe when we moved to Oklahoma. A going-away party was held for us, and the guests were asked to bring their favorite recipe as a remembrance. The special friend who brought this one has since died, and every time I make it, a flood of wonderful memories fills my heart.

This main dish is easy to prepare and always gets rave reviews at the dinner table. See if your family likes it as much as mine does. I'm sure they will.

Apricot Ham Rolls, from Carolyn Hannay of Antioch, Tennessee, are both speedy and special. "This is the kind of hearty dish we 10 kids would devour after doing chores on our parents' farm," Carolyn recalls. "Mom always had lots of hungry mouths to appreciate her good food. When I'm short on cooking time, I rely on this tasty recipe."

A tender, savory pork roast gets dressed up for the holidays in this tangy apricot sauce. It's wonderful old-fashioned dish that's a family favorite. It looks so pretty on the table. —Dorothy Pritchett, Wills Point, Texas

WHEN Mother wanted to serve ham, she went to the smokehouse, took one down from the rafters and sliced off as much as was needed. The rest was hung up again. This recipe is great if you use real smoked ham with no water added. When Mother prepared it this way, the flavor was especially sweet and buttery. -Marjorie Schmidt, St. Marys, Ohio

"I THINK what I enjoy most about Ukrainian cooking is the smells it creates. This pork roast reminds me of my mother's kitchen—it smells wonderful! My mother canned and preserved in the fall and always used applesauce to glaze the meat. That's probably why I associate the sweet aroma of this hearty stick-to-your-ribs meal with cooler weather."

"CHRISTMAS was the time when our family forgot about the food budget and splurged on one special meal. I can still see Grandmother making dozens of these little meatballs! The hint of spices gives them a savory taste that makes them authentically Norwegian."
