Sweet potatoes are not only tasty and versatile, they're good for you as well. Family and friends never mind eating a nutritious vegetable when it's part of this easy-to-prepare dessert, I like to serve this as a snack cake or breakfast coffee cake.—Kathy Theriot, St. Martinville, Louisiana
Each year, our family enjoys a dessert that's much more fun than the typical pies and cakes. With refreshing ice cream chock-full of holiday ingredients like nuts, cherries and candies, these treats are a delightful end to a perfect meal.

Longing to live in a log cabin? The house plans on these pages put the next best thing at your fingertips. And a kitchen, not a contractor, is all you need to do the construction!
This miniature abode, created by the CW Test Kitchen staff, consists mostly of ready-made ingredients. It's so easy to put together that kids (or grandkids) will love to "hire on" as part of your holiday building crew.
So, if a real log cabin's not in your immediate future, why not put up this cozy replica this season? Then dream of log-cabin Christmases to come!
I usually serve this as a side dish with poultry or pork. As the wonderful aroma wafts through the house, I'm always asked, "Is dinner ready yet?" So don't be surprised if your gang comes to the table extra-hungry.
A delicious dinner is even more memorable when I start with this creamy soup. It has a bit zip and super squash flavor. I like serving things that disappear like this soup does. I always get empty bowls back.

The combination of sweet, savory, crunchy and spicy ingredients makes a fabulous stuffed turkey that's become a tradition at our Thanksgiving dinner. Leftover stuffing can be a meal in itself.

My husband and I like to entertain at breakfast, and we're always looking for new recipes. So I was thrilled when my daughter shared this butterhorn recipe with me. They're so rich, light and easy to make.
I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen. I started with a basic bread stuffing, then began adding different things from my cupboard. This is the recipe I came up with. The stuffing disappears long before the bird is gone!
