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. -Billie Scoggins, Long Beach, Mississippi

THIS RECIPE is my grandmother's. Originally Gram even made the tomato juice in it from scratch! Every time I return to Massachusetts for a visit home, Gram has this soup simmering on the stove. She's always loved to cook, and at age 95, she still enjoys making tomato soup and other favorite dishes. -Gerri Sysun, Narragansett, Rhode Island

THIS RECIPE was always one of my family's favorites, and it remains so for my husband and me. When we plan a trip by car, I make the frittata the night before, stuff it into pita bread in the morning and microwave each one for a minute or two. Then I wrap them in a towel, and down the road an hour or so, we enjoy a still-warm breakfast! -Carol Blumenberg, Lehigh Acres, Florida

I CREATED this recipe because my family is so fond of corn. I tried to add a little zip to it with the marinade and I think I succeeded.
