The addition of olives makes this salsa a little different from other varieties. You can seed the jalapeno peppers if desired. But if you family likes salsa with some "heat", leave them in.—Sharon Lucas, Raymore, Missouri

Cooking is something I've always enjoyed...particularly when I'm doing it for people who enjoy eating! This dish is such a family favorite that I'll buy a ham sometimes just so I can make. I'm a city bus driver who likes to swap recipes with passengers. My husband and I have two sons, 20 and 18.

This sort of inside-out pizza is something I concocted one evening when I had leftover baked ham and needed to fix something quick and simple. My husband loved it—so did all his friends when he took some to work for lunch. —Shelby Marino, Neptune Beach, Florida

Almond Deviled Eggs

Meet the Cook: This recipe's one I've used many times for potlucks, during the holidays and several times a month when entertaining. The reactions have ranged from "These eggs slide down gently" from one young man to just "Scrumptious!" Though this dish is good on its own, you might also want to consider adding it to a salad plate or serving it with soup and sandwich for lunch. -Martha Baechle, Nipomo, California

Here is a great dip that can be made the day before serving. If you have a food processor, simply chop the eggs using the pulsing button. Only one or two pulses are needed. Then add remaining ingredients, pulse one more time and it's done!—Janie Carr, Fort Davis, Texas

Every Christmas, I make these cheese balls for an annual get-together. They aren't only for the holidays, however. You'll find they freeze well and last for a week in the refrigerator. I have even re-formed leftovers into smaller balls. I do my cooking in an 1892 home we're fixing up (my husband's a renovations contractor). We have a son, 3, and a baby daughter born last spring.
