When I was a girl during the Depression, we had enough cabbages to sink a ship! This was a family favorite my mother made often. After I was married, I served these potatoes to family and friends as a side dish to pork. I still make them for potlucks (I attend two of them a month), and everyone likes them. I have three grown children—plus five grandchildren whom I keep supplied with frozen yogurt and cookies!

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!

It was an abundance of dill in my garden that led me to try this. My family liked the taste so much that, from then on, I made my cabbage rolls with dill. My husband and I have seven children, ranging in age from 36 to 17.

My children always asked for this wonderful and tangy pork dish when they came home from school for the weekend. Today, they still appreciate the stir-fry's comforting flavor.

As delicious as this is right out of the oven, the bird and stuffing both taste great as leftovers, too. I am careful, though, not to overcook the turkey.

This is like a roast, only it uses chicken instead of beef. The rosemary gives it a sweet taste and blends well with the garlic, butter and parsley. —Isabel Zienkosky, Salt Lake City, Utah
