This simple recipe is one of my favorites. The flavor is great, and it can be prepared in a very short time. Sometimes I add shrimp for a change and to make a heartier meal.

The idea of onion muffins came from a friend of ours who ate onion sandwiches every day. I felt they needed some extra flavor, so I experimented and came up with some simple additions. These muffins make a delicious lunch, which I find men and children especially enjoy.

I discovered that the subtle taste of lemon really enhances the flavor of carrots. This recipe is a winner! Garnished with basil, these sweet, tender carrots add color to any main course.

Here's an easy way to get kids to eat their vegetables. Carrots were never my family's favorite, but with this delicious soup, they hardly know they're eating them.

In 1932, our junior high school cooking class teacher taught us a simple recipe starting with a can of tomato soup. As I was preparing tomato soup for lunch recently, I remembered those two additional ingredients. I had forgotten what a tasty difference the peanut butter and cheese make.

One of my mother's friends gave her this recipe in the late '40s. I grew up eating these sandwiches, and they've been a staple with my own family. Although our children have left home, I still make this dish often for my husband and me to enjoy.

I put this salad together with vegetables I had left in my garden. My family liked it so well, I started bringing it to community suppers and was often asked for the recipe. It's a refreshing side dish for any meat entree.

I'm always looking for good-tasting recipes that are low in fat and quick to fix, and this fits the bill. Because zucchini is so abundant, it's almost a game to find new ways to fix it. This makes a perfect side dish for any meal.
