I concocted this entrée after researching the nutrition benefits of blueberries. The fruity sauce complements the poultry patties, and mushrooms and spinach add a gourmet garnish.—Lori Merrick, Danvers, Illinois
Plain peanut butter and jelly sandwiches take on new shape in the hands of subscriber Flo Burtnett of Gage, Oklahoma! To make her fun versions, she cut frozen bread slices with a tree-shaped cookie cutter, poked holes into one slice so the jelly would show through, then put together the sandwiches. "By the time you've finished, the bread's thawed and ready for eating," she notes.
Meet the Cook: As the cook for our local volunteer fire department, I'm a nonstop recipe clipper. This one's been a constant in my file for years. It's great for grabbing and going, and a good lunch dish, too.
Here on our farm, my husband - who's also a teacher - and I have cattle and hogs plus one chicken who furnishes many of our eggs. We are the parents of a 6-year-old daughter.

As either a hearty party sandwich or a filling lunch or dinner, this sub will rise to the top of your list of favorites. It's also a perfect contribution to a potluck...but don't expect to have any leftovers!
One of my gang's favorite sandwiches is this burger. The kids prefer the zesty salad dressing to a mayonnaise base. Bits of pimiento add color. And serving the tuna on a toasted bun means no soggy bread.—Heidi Wilcox, Lapeer, Michigan
When I make this bread, I almost always have to bake two loaves so that everyone gets a taste!
It's especially good in the winter. In fact, last year when we went to a Christmas buffet at my husband's aunt's house—with a hearty soup as the main course—I took a Reuben Loaf along. It looks so pretty sliced and arranged on a platter, too.
My husband and I are crop farmers with three young children. Cooking—especially baking—is one of the ways I relax, and I also enjoy sewing.
These subs are a good year-round—for lunch, dinner or a late-night supper. When it's construction season, Brian may work until sundown. This meal's one that I can serve early to our kids and again later when he gets home.—Nanci Keatley, Salem, Oregon
Thanks to a dash of mustard, salsa and hot sauce, these warm tuna sandwiches are full of zip! "Slices of tomato and cheese round them out," says Shannon Phipps of Houston, Texas. "Sometimes I stir chopped pickle and hard-cooked eggs into the tuna mix for additional flavor."
