Whenever I have a hard time planning dinner, my husband requests his favorite bake. Often, I use it as an entree, served with warm tortillas. Other times, I eliminate the meat and present it as a spicy side dish.

My fiance and I like to hunt for wild asparagus come the spring. He's not much of a vegetable eater—but when I roll up these easy, nutritious appetizers, he can't get enough of them. The roll-ups are ideal for children too—they're a fun way to "disguise" vegetables they usually turn down!

When I want a meal to be extra special, I feature this beef roast as the centerpiece. The pale yellow sauce with flecks of green looks lovely draped over the slices. I'm 86 years old and have been cooking almost my whole life.

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.

One year, when St. Patrick's Day was coming near, I knew what would happen if I served plain cabbage again—the kids would all take one look and go "yuck"! So I decided to try this recipe. It's now become more or less a family tradition for us come every March 17. In fact, my husband (we're the parents of four and grandparents of five) likes it so much I fix it for him year-round. Friends enjoy it a great deal, too—it makes a great-looking platter!

"For years, my husband worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service-so I've prepared fish all kinds of different ways. This variation of stuffed salmon gets high marks from my family." —Cathie Beard, Philomath, Oregon

I quickly fell for this fantastic sweet-and-sour brisket when I had it at a family wedding reception. Since the meat needs to be refrigerated overnight after it bakes, it is a great make-ahead entree.

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

We like the sauce for my brisket over elk, moose and venison salami as well. And we also use it to spice hamburgers and hot dogs we sizzle on the grill. -Jacque Watkins, Green River, Wyoming

Does my family like this dish? I guess so—they call it "lip-smacking' goose! We're retired farmers with three children, all grown, and six grandchildren.

Ham and Asparagus Au Gratin

Ham and Asparagus Au Gratin

This has become a famous dish around our house! I like to make it for company, and friends are always asking me for the recipe. It's so versatile. You can serve it with fish, ham, turkey or chicken. My hobby is collecting recipes. I've put together 12 large notebook-sized books of them over the years—in alphabetical order. Asparagus is up front, of course! My husband and I were both raised on farms. We're retired now and enjoying life on our place surrounded by trees, birds and squ
