Since there's food galore during the holidays themselves, I like giving this zippy mix as an after-Christmas present instead. I just slip the containers of seasoning, beans and rice into a decorative paper bag. A recipe card completes the package.
Looking for a different treatment for cabbage? Try this spicy cheese-topped dish that I adapted from a friend's recipe. I added a little of this and that until it tasted the way I wanted. Not only do my husband and kids like it, I get rave reviews when I make it for company or church functions.

It's easy to add variety to this dish by stirring in cooked, crumbled bacon. since my husband likes spicy foods, I frequently sprinkle chopped jalapeno peppers over half of the casserole for him.—Carrina Cooper, McAlpin, Florida
NOTHING beats a batch of okra, fresh from the garden. Golden brown, with a little fresh green color showing through, these okra nuggets are crunchy and flavorful. My sons like to dip the fried okra in ketchup.
We enjoy eating sweet potatoes regularly and this is a delicious way to serve them. It is a great combination of flavors. The spicy seasoning of the mayo sauce pairs well with the taste of sweet potatoes.
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.
