Meet the Cook: In our family, a meal isn't considered complete without a dessert - or, sometimes, two! This cake does keep well, but leftovers are a rarity around here. -Deanna Carruthers, Mossley, Ontario

Here's a classic white chocolate brownie that I've entered in the state fair and frequently made for the men I work with- I'm a landscaper. I enjoy munching on these while cheering on my alma mater, Ohio State University.

A “must” at our family reunions is this easy make-ahead gelatin salad. Try decorating the top with maraschino cherries. The red and lime-green color is especially pretty for the holidays.

Chock-full of cranberries, chocolate chips and nuts, these cookies are fun to eat. They offer a change of pace from traditional Christmas cookies...but don't wait until December to make them. My family requests them all year-round.

Cherry Crisp

Cherry Crisp

Cherry Crisp

The very first time that I made Cherry Crisp, my brother happened to be visiting. He is an ice cream lover—but he passed up the scoops of vanilla that he tops most desserts with so he could taste the cherries better! Wheat, soybeans and milo are the main crops on our farm. We also have three small cherry trees. I apportion all of that harvest for this recipe. My husband's is the manager of a coop. I work part-time as a church secretary...teach piano in our home...and enjoy making clothes for myself and our 3-year-old daughter. Cross-stitch is one of my favorite hobbies.

Applescotch Crisp

Applescotch Crisp

Applescotch Crisp

Meet the Cook: Just as soon as the first crop of apples is off the trees, I fix this crisp. Thanks to the butterscotch pudding, it's moist and sweet. It's popular at potlucks, and it's a nice snack. In fact, I'm reluctant to make it in the evening - I'm afraid someone will sneak down to the refrigerator at midnight and claim it! My husband and I have four children, ranging in age from 21 to 8. -Elaine Nicholl, Nottingham, Pennsylvania
