At banquets, church dinners and even wedding buffets, this tantalizing turkey is a "must" for the table. It was a hit with the 100-plus guests at our family reunion. I've served it with cheesy potatoes and assorted summer salads. It's a snap to fix ahead of time and keeps well in the freezer.

Cherry Almond Ham Glaze

Cherry Almond Ham Glaze

I came across this recipe looking for an alternative to traditional sauces for holiday meats. Mostly, I serve it with holiday ham, and it goes over well—probably because it is such a change of taste. But the glaze should be fine with almost any meat...and its cheesy color would add a festive touch to the table! Our life's busy. In addition to being a farm records analyst, my husband's a minister. I work out of our home—our girls are 4 and 1—as a hairstylist and Edd's

Since I don't like store-bought sauces, I decided to come up with my own. I make it for family and for company, and I'll often get asked for the recipe.

My hobbies are Bible study, international cooking (I like trying lots of recipes!) and planning activities with our youngsters.

We enjoy this salad in the spring with fried chicken. It's also good with turkey or chicken casseroles during winter. I even served it at Thanksgiving instead of a Waldorf salad. I began cooking when I was 8 years old. My parents did the farm chores before breakfast, so I decided I'd surprise them one morning by making biscuits while they were outside. I ended up with the dough on both hands that just wouldn't let loose—I can still see my mother's big grin when she came in and spot
