Apple Roly-Poly isn't very fancy, but it's genuine Down East fare. It came from my grandmother. With 13 children plus the men at Grandpa's sawmill, she had to do lots of cooking each day! —Megan Newcombe, Cookstown, Ontario

This cake's one I prepare frequently for Sunday dinner. I also make it for church meetings and to take to friends who are sick. It goes a long way—unless you have some real "chocoholics"! I've been cooking as long as I've been married, for almost 30 years. My husband's the director of a Christian youth missionary organization, and our two children are 19 and 17.

Rhubarb Cherry Pie

When missionary friends dropped by unexpected last summer, this pie is what I served for dessert. I first made it for a church gathering 20 years ago—ever since, everyone's looked for it! As a young girl, I dreamed of being able to make pies like my mother. (Her rolling pin, which I inherited, was 2 ft. long and 8 in. wide!) In fact, this is Mom's rhubarb strawberry pie recipe with cherries instead. I love rhubarb! My husband and I—our three children are 21, 18 and 11—have a 30-acre farm, with hay and cattle, in addition to our city jobs, and I grow eight hills of rhubarb.

I'm a homemaker—with two children, 4 and 1—who likes to try new recipes. When I served these at a recent family gathering, I got lots of compliments!

To tell you the truth, I'm not sure how well my crumble keeps...we usually eat it all in a day! You can skip the apples and strawberries in the recipe—like I do sometimes—But they do make this quick-and-easy dessert extra good. Although our address in Alberta, our farm's actually just inside the Saskatchewan border. We grow grain and raise cattle. Our children are 10 and 7.

One thing's certain each time I serve this...someone will ask for the recipe! My family...my husband and our children, 12 and 9—and I live on the outskirts of town. I grow my rhubarb, and my plant gets bigger every year.

Whenever my mom and I have a "rhubarb attack", we make this pie! Although we haven't farmed much of late, my husband and I call the old family homestead home. Our grown son's the fifth generation to live here.

This wonderful pie is one of my favorite's to serve in the summer. Instead of topping the pie with ice cream, the ice cream is already in the pie!—Connie Fleck, Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin
