Asparagus is in season, so celebrate with this satisfying meatless dish from Genise Krause of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. The tender spears pair beautifully with the creamy white sauce, which is tossed with fettuccine right in the skillet.
GINGERSNAPS and mushrooms give these tender meatballs a special old-world flavor. The recipe was handed down from my husband's family several years ago.
I love to cook and found that this was an easy recipe to double and share with friends. The meatballs can also be frozen for a convenient meal at a later time.

Try your hand at this stress-free chicken dish from Denise Ahlers of Freeburg, Illinois. Perfectly portioned for two, the chicken is tender and moist, and its flavory coating has all the “right stuff.”
BESIDES being a great cook, my mom could put a meal together in no time at all. A creative cook, she didn't always measure everything, which made it look so easy.
This recipe of hers is quick to put together. The sauce is simple but delicious. We have ham quite often and this is our favorite "leftover" dish.
