A technique passed down from generations—drenching cheesecloth in melted butter and oil, then draping the cloth over the turkey before roasting—helps give the bird beautiful golden-brown skin. The technique also results in juicy, moist breast meat.—Jeanne Horn, Duluth, Minnesota
This winning dish gets its flavorful kick from a tomatillo mixture jazzed up with lime juice, cilantro and jalapeno. Dollop with sour cream and serve over rice for a memorable meal. —Audrey Kinne, Elkhart, Indiana
These tasty ham steaks combine orange marmalade and maple syrup for a terrific taste that goes beyond dinner: I like to serve leftovers at brunch. We love it with fruit and scrambled eggs. —Bonnie Hawkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin
I created this recipe many years ago with items I already had on hand. Since then, it has become a family favorite. The ham is succulent with a mild citrus flavor. I was asked to share the recipe with a church social and there were so many raves, I knew the recipe was a winner! —Sheila Christensen, San Marcos, California
I found a recipe in a local newspaper back in the 60's for duckling with fruit sauce. One duck wouldn't yield the number of servings I needed so I reworked the recipe to make it with a big meaty roasting chicken or capon. It's been a favorite holiday dish ever since. A small 9- to 11-pound turkey may be substituted for chicken—I've used both. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia
Chicken spread with an apricot and lemon sauce is elegant enough for company and a snap to make. I got this recipe in college and have used it to woo my friends and family ever since. It is very healthy as well, so it is something I can add to my regular menu rotation. —Kendra Doss, Kansas City, Missouri
