Sacher Torte is a classic Viennese cake that requires several steps. My squares give you an easy way out that still features the classic apricot and chocolate flavors. —Arlene Erlbach, Morton Grove, IL
People are delighted to find the ruby cranberry sauce swirled inside this tempting coffee cake. With the crumble topping, moist cake and tangy filling, it won't last long!

This wonderful, moist side dish is perfect for holidays or anytime a meal requires a special touch. Dried cranberries, currants and almonds add color and texture. The ladies I work with all enjoy making this dish.

While living in Canada, I sampled this colorful dish at a neighbor's. The following Christmas, I served it instead of my traditional turkey, and I received numerous compliments on it. I frequently substitute shrimp or sausage for the chicken...or add all three.

For a deliciously different dish to pass, try this cabbage. It cooks up tender yet still refreshingly crisp, and the almonds add flavor and crunch. This is a fun and tasty winter side dish that brings people back for seconds.

We've been making these muffins daily since we opened back in 1987. The recipe is a combination of our favorites from home. We bake at least 30 dozen muffins for the shop every morning.—Anne Maher, Rockland, Maine
Here in Missouri, asparagus season is short, so we savor every delicious bite of this delicacy. Of course, this vegetable freezes so well I'm able to prepare tasty dishes like this year-round.—Darlene Schafer, Corder, Missouri
