Meet the Cook: In our chocolate-loving house, this cake disappears very quickly! My husband and I have a 6-month-old son. We enjoy the peacefulness of country living.

Here's a recipe from our Test Kitchen for "chicken nuggets" that's poultry-free. It calls for pound cake in place of chicken, rolled in a “batter” of chopped peanuts. Kids will think they're having dinner for dessert.
Whenever I'm invited to an outing involving food, so is my cheesecake. Light in texture, it has deliciously rich flavor. With its cranberry-pink color, it looks too pretty to cut...but don't let that stop you.
After tasting it at a bake sale, I got the recipe for this pie from a friend, then adapted it. I make it for family gatheringsit's everyone's favorite treatand also for when company comes by.
Our children6 and 3"help" me with baking. They've learned many of their measurement in the kitchen!
When missionary friends dropped by unexpected last summer, this pie is what I served for dessert. I first made it for a church gathering 20 years agoever since, everyone's looked for it!
As a young girl, I dreamed of being able to make pies like my mother. (Her rolling pin, which I inherited, was 2 ft. long and 8 in. wide!) In fact, this is Mom's rhubarb strawberry pie recipe with cherries instead.
I love rhubarb! My husband and Iour three children are 21, 18 and 11have a 30-acre farm, with hay and cattle, in addition to our city jobs, and I grow eight hills of rhubarb.
Here’s a parfait that’s perfect for a garden or patio party. Tea adds a wonderfully unexpected flavor to gelatin. And kids will have fun finding the cherry at the bottom.Teena Petrus, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
A touch of sweet white wine and citrus makes this lovely pear sorbet so refreshing. You can use canned pears when fresh ones aren't available. And lime juice is a nice substitute for lemon.— Deirdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri
