Leafy greens brighten this savory pie—the ideal comfort food for spring. Add a side of healthy vegetables, a salad or fruit and you have a light and satisfying lunch.—Marie Rizzio, Interlochen, Michigan
This rich quiche recipe is featured in a family cookbook I compiled. It's attractive enough to serve for a company brunch...and it tastes terrific. My husband is proof that quiche can satisfy even a man-sized appetite!
These elegant blintzes can be served as an attractive dessert or a brunch entree. The bright cherry sauce gives them a delightful flavor. I sometimes substitute other fruits, such as raspberries, blueberries or peaches.

A professional cook, I appreciate make-ahead dishes like this one. Pop it into the oven before guests arrive...add fresh fruit and muffins...and you have an instant brunch. You can serve it as a hearty supper, too, drizzled with a little salsa.
Our daughter wouldn't mind if I made this Ham 'n' Cheese Strata every weekend! I do prepare it for each holiday, serving it alongside fresh cinnamon buns and a fruit salad. —Marilyn Kroeker, Steinbach, Manitoba
Corn is a staple around our house in summer-and so is this comforting dish. Every year, we grow corn in our backyard garden. I keep several packages of our homegrown corn in the freezer so I can make recipes like this in any season.
Meet the Cook: This recipe came to me from my mother - it's the kind you request after just one bite! Unlike some quiches, it's also hearty enough that it appeals equally to both woman and men.
Cooking is something that I've always liked. I pore over cookbooks the way other people read novels! In addition, I collect antique kitchen utensils. My husband and I have one son, 12.

This has become the brunch dish I'm known for here in Pearland. The recipe combines the favorite flavors of hearty, old-time country breakfasts with the ease of a modern, make-ahead dish. Try it—you'll enjoy it.
