A real Southern favorite, black-eyed peas are traditionally served on New Year's Day to bring good luck. My mother's recipe with bacon, garlic and thyme makes them extra special. —Ruby Williams, Bogalusa, Louisiana

Meet the Cook: Back when I was teaching elementary school (I'm now a busy stay-at-home mom to our two youngsters, 7 and 2), my class would put together a Mother's Day cookbook. Many of the dishes are still my favorites - this one included. -Linda Wheeler, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Meet the Cook: If you follow the recipe directions, you should end up with firm tomatoes. It's been a tried-and-true method for me. I started cooking as a teenager. My first meal was spaghetti, and it was so salty we couldn't eat it! My husband and I are retired. We have two grown children and three grandchildren. -Clara Mifflin, Creal Springs, Illinois

I love having pints of these spicy tomatoes in the freezer to use in place of canned stewed tomatoes with green chilies in my favorite recipes. Beside, home-grown is always much better than store-bought.—Cathy Hardin, Santa Monica, California

Our budget was tight when our children were small, so I cooked with ground beef often. Nowadays, I make this creative casserole simply because we love it! —Trudy Williams, Shannonville, Ontario

Red Cabbage Casserole

Red Cabbage Casserole

Since I enjoy spending time with my guests rather than alone in the kitchen, this one's a favorite dish...I've served it with ham, pork and turkey. With its color and eye appeal, I call on it on special days like Christmas or Easter when I'm cooking for a crowd. I'd also recommend it for potlucks. Although my husband and I were "city kids" both born in Toronto, we have been farming since we were married. We have two grown daughters.

Sauerkraut Stuffing

When my husband and I were married, I didn't know how to boil water. Now, many years later, there are 890 cookbooks and counting in my collection—and we are parents of five grown children and grandparents of eight!

For a different side dish from the mash potatoes, I serve this red cabbage dish. It all such a pop of color on the plate and it also very delicious.—Lisa Gibbons, Wildwood, Illinois
