Dottye Wolf of Rolla, Missouri is on a restricted diet, although her husband is not.
"I often make two different single-serving recipes," Dottye reports. "Yogurt Parfait is a delicious breakfast or luncheon treat, especially with wafers on the side."
A beautiful side dish, this compote spotlights wonderful winter fruit like bananas, apples, oranges and pineapple. Of course, it can be made anytime of year. I'm sure you'll get as many smiles as I do when I bring out this refreshing salad at a potluck. —Donna Long, Searcy, Arkansas
These pancakes are a real breakfast favorite in our family. Even our 8- and 10-year-old daughters make them all by themselves when they have friends spend the night. Now their friends' mothers are asking for the recipe! —Cheryl Sowers, Bakersfield, California
Last spring we visited old friends who serve this egg dish for Sunday breakfast before church. I thought it was wonderful and full of flavor. Besides, it's easy to make ahead. I use fresh asparagus and serve it with muffins and fresh fruit. —Betty Jacques, Hemet, California
My in-laws own and operate an orchard, so we have an abundance of fruit fresh from the trees. This dish includes fresh apples, apple jelly and applesauce all in one recipe. It's a warm, hearty breakfast for busy days.

The nutty whole wheat taste comes through in these delicious waffles. Crispy and light with a subtle orange flavor, they make an appealing breakfast or supper when served with sausage. Topped with your favorite fruit and whipped cream, they even make a satisfying dessert.

You can easily prepare this the night before for a luncheon or during the morning for a dinner. I serve it year-round, for large groups like my card club or garden club, at picnics and at other occasions. When I do, just about always someone requests the recipe!
My husband and I have been married 49 years (two sons and five grand daughters). I've enjoyed cooking since I was a girl. My mother was an excellent cook, and she passed along many of the Pennsylvania Dutch recipes that are popular in this part or our state.
