Cajun Spiced Broccoli

Cajun Spiced Broccoli

I usually make this minus the Creole seasoning, but a few weeks ago, I decided to try adding a different spice just to see what would happen. I loved it! It's garlicy, spicy and crunchy! —Krista Frank, Krista Frank, Rhododendron, Oregon

Plenty of pecans and bacon give this stuffing a unique flavor— while using a packaged mix cuts down on the preparation time.

Bacon & Oyster Stuffing

Bacon & Oyster Stuffing

Smoky bacon leads the way in this East Coast-inspired stuffing. If you really like oysters, add an extra can. Doubling the oysters will add about 17¢ per serving.—Sherry Thompson, Seneca, South Carolina

Garlic Cheese Grits

My dad prepared this family favorite every Christmas morning. Grits are a true Southern specialty. The garlic and cheese add a tasty touch.

Fried Sausage Grits

Fried Sausage Grits

My mother used to make a version of this recipe using hominy and salmon. One day I substituted sausage and grits and decided I liked it better than the original.

Chili-Cheese Bake

Chili-Cheese Bake

Since my husband's a Navy meteorologist, we've sampled food all over the world. I adapted this recipe from one I was given while we were stationed on the Aleutian Islands. Fresh meat was difficult to obtain in that part of Alaska, so I learned to make many meals featuring grains and legumes instead! We're looking forward to retiring soon to a small farm in central Maine. All three of our children were 4-H leader for 9 years.

Grilled Cajun Green Beans

This is a perfect way to use up your garden's green beans. The Cajun flavor makes it different from your regular green bean recipe.—Shannon Lewis, Andover, Minnesota

Sweet N Sour Beans

Sweet N Sour Beans

Sweet N Sour Beans

This recipe is popular on both sides of the border. It came from a friend in Alaska, then traveled with me to old Mexico, where I lived for 5 years, and is now a potluck favorite in my Arkansas community. It's easy to keep the beans warm and serve from a slow cooker. -Barbara Short, Mena, Arkansas

Grits Casserole

Grits Casserole

Grits Casserole

Grits is a main ingredient for many Southern meals. I've had this recipe for years and never grow tired of it. It's especially good to serve on a lazy weekend, since leftover portions are very tasty served cold.

Creole-Stuffed Turkey

Creole-Stuffed Turkey

Creole-Stuffed Turkey

Trying out new recipes is such a "passion" of mine that my husband sometimes will ask to have something for dinner that he's actually seen before! My Creole-Stuffed Turkey originated when my sister from Texas and her family—who love Southern cooking—were here one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept coming back for another serving...and we ended up stuffed, too.

Corn Bread Sausage Stuffing

Corn Bread Sausage Stuffing

I made this recipe over 45 years ago for the first pheasant I ever roasted—it was a special dinner I prepared to thank a wonderful sister and brother-in-law for all of their help when we bought our first home. To this day, it's a favorite with our friends and family when they come to visit.
