This frothy frosty beverage is positively delicious for breakfast, mid-afternoon snack or after-dinner dessert. It's also a great quick treat to serve with a plate of cookies when friends come to call during the holidays. To make the ice cream topping easier to drizzle, put it in a squeeze bottle, take the cap off and microwave for a few seconds. —Carol Mann, Summerfield, Florida
I once taught an adult program called Eating Smart for Seniors. For that class, I developed many recipes for one or two people that were simple to prepare and used common ingredients.Terri Brown, Darien, Wisconsin
I LOVE POTATOES prepared in any way. I came up with this recipe by combining two recipes for broccoli and potato "latkes".
These are easy to prepare and make a delicious side dish.

"In an effort to eat healthier, I've been playing around with some recipes, including this hearty omelet," writes field editor Cathee Bethel of Lebanon, Oregon. The bountiful blend of tomatoes, kidney beans, cheese and onion makes it a satisfying centerpiece for breakfast, brunch or supper.
My sister-in-law gave me this recipe over 50 years ago and it's still a hit at potluck dinners. I made it for company once, and they came by the next day with a large head of cabbage, hoping to exchange it for the recipe.

I hate the thought of making too much and having leftovers for a week, so I've pared down my recipes. This one is simple and quick to prepare, plus the carrot, green pepper and celery make it nutritious and colorful. It's great served with cheddar-topped baked potatoes.Judi Brinegar, Liberty, North Carolina
