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.
I invented this dish as an easy, grown-up version of the frozen cream-filled pops we all enjoyed as children. The mandarin oranges and whipped topping re-create the tangy orange and ice cream flavors. One bite cools the heat from the rest of the meal.—Elizabeth Freise, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania
"I truly enjoy recipes that make enough for the two of us, like this one for yummy waffles," shares Ruth Andrewson of Leavenworth, Washington. "Instead of blueberries, you can slice ripe strawberries on top-or use the batter to make pancakes."
Our family raised chickens, making my mother naturally creative with eggs. Since dad didn't care for eggs alone but did like fish, she often mixed eggs with salmon. I still prepare this wholesome omelet today.
Here's a speedy skillet scramble from Patsy Grimes of Port Aransas, Texas. It combines eggs, sausage, tortillas, jalapeno and cheese. "This recipe came from a Mexican-American friend, "she writes. "I knew it was a winner the first time I made it."
For years, I made these pancakes plain. Then my husband and I started growing blueberries. What a delicious addition! I often fix a fluffy stack for my family. It's hard to fill up our grandkids, so I'm glad this recipe makes a big batch.
You won't get any complaints from family or friends when you stack up these golden waffles for breakfast! Reader Kim Branges of grand Canyon, Arizona shares the tender morning mainstay that her clan requests regularily.
"I love serving these tender crepes with their light lemony sauce in spring," notes Carol Hemker of Phenix City, Alabama. "But my husband would eat them any time of year at all. In fact, it's the only way he'll eat asparagus! This dish is also lovely for luncheon or brunch."
