Meet the Cook: For me, the hardest part of making this quick dish is keeping the cashews in the cupboard! My husband loves them, and so do our three little girls - 5, 4 and 3.

SINCE all our children are grown, I like to make simple dishes for my husband and me.
I usually have cheese, carrots and rice on hand, so this is a very handy side dish to whip up at any time. The cashews add crunch and great flavor.

If your family and friends enjoy rich-tasting confections, these treats are bound to be a hit at holiday gatherings! Filled with chocolate and cashews, the cookies have melt-in-your-mouth appeal. I came up with them while trying to develop a creative new recipe. They've proven popular. —Melissa Boder, Salem, Virginia
Curry powder is the key to these tasty cashews, perfect as a party snack or hostess gift. "These unusual nuts were served at an open house I attended." shares Gertrude Wood of Elliconttville, New York. "I tracked down the recipe and now make them often for friends."
"Salted nut rolls were my mother's favorite candy bar, so I always think of her when I make these sweet snacks," shares Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon. "Youngsters can help knead and shape the marshmallow mixture and later roll the treats in nuts after they have been dipped in caramel."
Guests will enjoy the fruity surprise they find in these scrumptious nut candies. "I make them often because they can be whipped up in no time," says Pamela Wagner. "Everyone will love the unusual combination," promises the Madison, Wisconsin cook.
"My family loves to take along individual bags of this colorful fast-to-fix mixture when we go on long car trips," reports Lisa Keylor of Louisville, Kentucky. "The sweet and salty flavors really taste good together."
