There’s no place like home-style when roasting the big bird. Instead of sage stuffing with turkey, stuff this bird with fresh sage and sprigs of thyme. — Beth Jacobson, Taste of Home Magazine, Milwaukee, WI
Refrigerated pizza crust dough gets a tasty treatment from pleasant seasonings and easy cheese and tomato toppings. This basic recipe can be modified to suit individual tastes. My husband loves to add sliced ripe olives just before baking. We think it's best when served fresh out of the oven.

Low-fat food can look just as appealing as heavy entrees. Wrapped around asparagus bundles, these mouthwatering fish fillets are an ideal example. The basil-thyme sauce is an exceptional touch to the lovely dinner.—Jane Shapton, Irvine, California
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.
These moist golden hens are a tradition at our house on Christmas Eve. We think the spiced rice stuffing with cinnamon, sweet raisins and honey goes so well with the birds and makes the meal a special one.

Whenever I serve this succulent golden turkey and delectable dressing, guests fill their plates and I'm buried in compliments. This recipe always makes a holiday dinner one to remember. It's well worth the time.

I created this entree years ago when a friend gave me some fresh-caught mahi mahi. Shortly after, I entered the recipe in a contest and won! I think you'll agree it's a keeper. —Virginia Anthony, Jacksonville, Florida
