Raspberry Vinegar Pork Chops

Raspberry Vinegar Pork Chops

This recipe originally called for chicken; in addition to pork, I've tried it with grouse for a change of pace. The area I live in is very rural, and so many of my visitors stay overnight. Some of those friends send me fresh raspberries before they arrive as a hint they'd like me to serve this dish!

Citrus-Baked Cornish Hens

The mustard in this dish surprises people. Combined with the citrus, it provides a real double "zing". You can also vary the ingredients, if you like. As an example, I've found the hens are tasty with orange marmalade. My husband's a grade school principal, and we have a 14-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son—resulting in a lot of schedules to juggle in our house. Sometimes, I'll cut the hens in half and have supper ready in 45 minutes.

Creole-Stuffed Turkey

Creole-Stuffed Turkey

Trying out new recipes is such a "passion" of mine that my husband sometimes will ask to have something for dinner that he's actually seen before! My Creole-Stuffed Turkey originated when my sister from Texas and her family—who love Southern cooking—were here one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept coming back for another serving...and we ended up stuffed, too.

Low-Sodium Herb-Rubbed Turkey

If you're looking for a new twist on turkey, Ruby Bergschneider's recipe may just be the one. The Jacksonville, Illinois cook prepares a well-blended, salt-free rub that goes under the turkey skin. She removes the skin before eating, resulting in a low-fat entree. This recipe proves that you don't need a lot of salt for good flavor.

Red-Eye Beef Roast

The addition of hot sauce zips up this cut of meat. It takes me back to spicy dinners I enjoyed as a child in the Southwest. I like to use the leftovers in different dishes-including barbecued beef sandwiches, quesadillas and burritos. —Carol Stevens, Basye, Virginia
