For over 25 years, I've made this beautiful ham in a golden crust at holiday dinners, and people think I'm the fanciest cook they ever met—never knowing how simple it was to prepare. Serve it with your favorite sauce. —Sharon Devereaux, Speedway, Indiana
"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."
Cooking meats, I have to confess, isn't my specialty. But everyone who tastes this main-course dish wants more!
I'm a mostly at-home mom. I like to sew and read. I also enjoy gardening—we grow a good-sized patch, and it's so nice to have fresh-picked tomatoes and spinach when I make salads.
For a pretty presentation at your holiday gathering, reach for this impressive recipe. The sun-dried tomato sauce is great with the chicken as well as grilled veggies.—Jaqui Humphrey, Kirkland, Washington
It looks so elegant that everyone thinks I really fussed when I serve this roast. But it's actually so easy! The biggest challenge is to remember to order the crown roast from the meat department ahead of time. My family loves the succulent pork and savory bread stuffing.
