Whenever my mom and I have a "rhubarb attack", we make this pie!
Although we haven't farmed much of late, my husband and I call the old family homestead home. Our grown son's the fifth generation to live here.
To start your St. Patrick's Day feast off right, be sure to hand out lucky shamrocks—in the shape of those that top this sweet salad! Making them is merely a matter of cutting gelatin with a cookie cutter. Want to prepare the recipe for another celebration? No problem—just change the cookie cutters to suit the occasion. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
I use homegrown cherries in this bountiful pie with its unique crunchy coconut topping. But I've found that purchased tart cherries yield a dessert that's nearly as delicious. I always bake this pie around Presidents' Day or Valentine's Day, but it's popular with my family in any season.
Take a trip back to the sixties with these sweetly psychedelic cupcakes. Each is a simple white cake, but tinting the batter all the colors of the rainbow makes them funky and fun!— Gwyndolyn Wilkerson, Kyle, Texas
This delicious "tree" created from chocolates—is rooted in Elisa Schmidt's generosity. "I wanted to give family and friends something they'd remember," she detailed. "So I whipped up piles of these sweets for everyone." Adding to the fun, the CT kitchen staff turned Elisa's treats into a tree. They took their cue from the way she described preparing those piles of candies in her kitchen. You'll find it easy to do the same for Valentine's ...a birthday...or to brighten a cloudy winter day.
Our test kitchen experts turned out a special treat by using tinted batter to "paint" a picture atop a basic cheesecake. You can follow our design...create your own...or leave it plain. Any way you slice it, this dessert serves up sweetness.
Apple Roly-Poly isn't very fancy, but it's genuine "Down East" fare. It came from my grandmother. With 13 children plus the men at Grampa's sawmill, she had to do lots of cooking each day!
My husband and I have four children, 10 to 3. We crop 1,500 acres of corn, soybean, wheat and white beans.
Pears and almonds make a mouthwatering match in this cake from Lillian Julow, Gainesville, Florida. “It looks pretty with the fruit on top,” she pens. “How can something this simple taste this wonderful?”—Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia
