This blue-ribbon recipe won ‘Best of Show’ at the county fair for Wanda Houston of Houlka, Mississippi. The delectable loaves are tiny and moist, she writes, “and I bake a lot of them for gifts during the holidays.”
THE FIRST TIME I bought a red cabbage, I didn't quite know what to do with it, but after some experimenting, I came up with this recipe. It has now become my fall "comfort food".
This side dish is compatible with a variety of meat entrees, but I especially like it with a pork roast or chops.

This vegetable dish recipe was in my grandmother's collection. At first, I only cooked it on Sundays or special occasions. But my family enjoyed it so much, I make it all the time now.

WHEN I prepare this delicious carrot recipe, I'm reminded of a fabulous church supper our family attended back in 1942. I had never seen so much delicious food before - truly Southern cooking in full flower. These carrots were one of the side dishes served.

Tender, tiny, tasty red potatoes slathered in a creamy dill sauce make a versatile side for all kinds of meat entrees. This never-fail recipe always brings raves to Geraldine Hagemann in Rembey, Alberta.
IN our early years of marriage, my husband asked me to make bean salad "like his mother's". I've tried many versions, but this is the one our whole family likes best.
In the past, I'd can about 50 quarts of green beans every year, but now my husband suggests I can only enough to keep making this salad.
