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.

Though some parts of Alaska are suitable for farming, we're on the Gulf, where commercial fishing is the main industry. Crab is plentiful here, and so is salmon, halibut, shrimp and sea herring. You don't need fresh crab for this delicious, easy-to-make supper pie, though-with canned crabmeat, it becomes a great "off-the-shelf" meal. Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!

Apricot Ham Rolls, from Carolyn Hannay of Antioch, Tennessee, are both speedy and special.

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."
