Jerk-Spiced Mango Pineapple Chutney

I grew up eating mango, pineapple and spicy food, so enjoy the combination of these flavors. I try to make this chutney during the summer when the fruit is most flavorful and affordable. It's fine to adjust the spiciness according to your liking. You can serve this with any meat, but also with fish, such as salmon.—Sugiyarti Jorgenson, Kodiak, Alaska

Versatile and delicious, this conserve reminds me of a warm cozy kitchen; you'll love every bite. I warm the conserve and pour it over vanilla ice cream as a dessert, and it's great as a topping over French toast, biscuits or even pork roast. Be sure to make more than one batch so you can give it as gifts during the holidays.—Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania

This year, when I asked my brother what he wanted for his 31st birthday, he answered, "pickled Brussels sprouts." I had never even tasted a pickled Brussels sprout before.

Meet the Cook: Especially to guests who enjoy the variety of Chinese cooking, this is a treat. I like serving it with fried noodles or rice as a side dish. I am a widow with two daughters, both grown, and a grandson. Music is a favorite pastime. I've been the founder and director of a seniors band called "The Happy Has Beens", and I perform for clubs, church groups and seniors as the "Hat Lady", singing about my travels through our state. -Louise Johnson, Harriman, Tennessee

Orange and Red Onion Salad

It's true—orange and onion really does sound like an unusual combination. But when my husband tasted Orange and Red Onion Salad for the first time, he told me, "This one's worth at least three kisses!" I serve this salad with chicken...it likely would go well with fish, too. Up until a short time ago, we lived in the San Joaquin Valley, where almonds, peaches and other crops thrive. Now—along with our 17-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter—we're settling into

Meet the Cook: Our family schedule is a little different than most - I am a waitress at Disney World, and many days I have to be at work before my husband comes home for supper. Because of that, I'll often leave Bacon Jardin on the stove for him to reheat. He loves it! I grew up in the country, in upstate New York. I know what it's like when the zucchini and tomatoes take over and everyone's looking for a different away to serve them. So I've passed this recipe along to my mom and oth
