The grilled apples in this salad combine so well with the blue cheese, walnuts and balsamic dressing. I like to serve it on pink Depression glass dessert plates from my great-grandmother. —Paul Soska, Toledo, Ohio
I am 90 years old and have been baking this cake very Christmas for 65 years! My sister-in-law gave me the recipe in 1941 and it has been in demand since. My grandchildren have never been able to figure out why it's called a potato cake since it doesn't taste like potatoes.
In Waukesha, Wisconsin, Dolores Kastello dresses up ice cream with an easy three-ingredient topping that's full of nuts. "As this rich chocolate sauce cools over the ice cream, it forms a hard shell that kids (and adults) love," she notes.
Oatmeal for breakfast is a standard item, but I like to mix it up a bit. This version gets some natural sweetness from pinapple juice and tidbits. It is definitely worth trying! —Maria Regakis, Somerville, Massachusetts
It's a pleasure to serve this festive ruby-colored pie, which tastes as good as it looks! The filling is an irresistible combination of fruits and nuts. Topped with a bit of whipped cream, a lovely slice of this pie is a cool refreshing end to an enjoyable meal.

"This good-for-you dessert is packed with ingredients that remind me of fall!" writes field editor Lisa Varner from Charleston, South Carolina. Chopped apples and walnuts add fun flavor to this moist snack cake that is sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar topping.
This pretty glazed loaf is bursting with fresh citrus flavor. Walnuts add a subtle nuttiness and yummy texture to the moist slices. It's one recipe you can serve year after year, and never tire of it. —Mrs. MRS PRISCILLA Gilbert, IND HBR BCH, Florida
