"Early in June, we helped Mom pick the first green sweet peas of the season. Mom combined them with potatos and green onion to create this creamy dish, which we all loved." —Ginny Werkmeister, Tilden NE
There’s nothing like Long Island potatoes…and this recipe gives them a bit of tropical flair with pineapple, coconut, soy sauce and ginger. My family thinks they’re out of this world! The potatoes are a hit whenever I’ve served them—at barbecues, holidays and more—and I’ve often had requests for the recipe.
Fresh green beans are wrapped in bacon and covered in a sweet sauce in this fast and simple side dish. “Every time I take these green bean bundles to a luncheon or family dinner, people beg me for the recipe," notes Julie Hewitt from Union Mills, Indiana.
These rich, creamy mashed potatoes are special enough for company, but my family won't wait for that. So I make them for everyday meals as well. The snipped chives add a nice touch of green to a springtime meal.

When putting on a party for their American Legion Post, my father and uncle prepared this yummy potato dish. I've used the recipe for smaller groups by making a half or quarter of it. It's simple to divide.
