A tart lemon-pepper dressing accents this colorful vegetable combination. Mom doesn’t always add the asparagus spears, but I think the steamed stalks make it twice as good.—Emma Rea, Columbia, South Carolina
Chocoholic friends and family will know you fussed when they taste Mary Lou Wayman’s mini chocolate cream puffs filled with creamy, chocolate-hazelnut flavor. “These tiny treats are as pretty as a picture,” notes the Salt Lake City, Utah baker, “and worth every mouthwatering bite.”—Mary Lou Wayman, Salt Lake City, Utah
Presents from the pantry are a tradition with me-and this crusty coffee "dunker" is a favorite! Stuffed with fruits and nuts, it freezes well and can be made a month ahead of busy holidays. Dried cranberries can be substituted for cherries.
Created by our Test Kitchen, this rich chocolate mousse is a sweet way to begin your morning. With crunchy hazelnuts and a slight vanilla flavor, it’s wonderful with fresh fruit, cookies and a big cup of coffee on the side.
