Zesty Fried Green Tomatoes

You don't have to be from the South to savor this traditional treat-a wonderful way to use up unripened fall tomatoes. We start our tomato plants in early spring so we can enjoy their bounty as long as possible.—Gladys Gibbs, Brush Creek, Tennessee

Asian Corn Succotash

Since I’m not a fan of lima beans, I use edamame (green soybeans) in this colorful succotash instead. The Asian-inspired dressing alone is addictive.—Dierdre Callaway, Parkville, Missouri

Asparagus Spaghetti

Asparagus Spaghetti

Asparagus Spaghetti

Lots of asparagus is grown not too far from our h me. Each spring, when it's being harvested, I'll make several trips to the fields. I put about 40 lbs. in the freezer...with what's left, we gorge ourselves on fried asparagus, beef and asparagus, scalloped asparagus, etc.! It's no problem feeding my husband (he's retired; we have two grown children and four grandsons). He'll eat almost anything I put in front of him. We like this dish with a salad and dessert. It's so easy to prepare—it takes only about half an hour from start to serving.

Corn is a staple around our house in summer-and so is this comforting dish. Every year, we grow corn in our backyard garden. I keep several packages of our homegrown corn in the freezer so I can make recipes like this in any season.

Maple Baked Beans

Maple Baked Beans

Since my husband raises hogs and my parents produce maple syrup, this recipe's a natural for me! I usually prepare Maple Baked Beans just for us during the winter. In summer, I'll often make it for family picnics and get-togethers.

The mild taste of Vidalias makes this casserole appealing to onion lovers and non-fans alike. It's an excellent accompaniment to beef, pork or chicken. —Katrina Stitt, Zephyrhills, Florida

Au Gratin Peas and Potatoes

Au Gratin Peas and Potatoes

While this delicious potato skillet is a wonderful side dish, we find it satisfying enough to be a main course, too. The skillet prep takes less time than it does to bake an au gratin casserole or scalloped potatoes—but it's still good, old-fashioned comfort food at its best! —Marie Peterson, Deforest, Wisconsin

Can't decide whether to cook vegetables or pasta for a side dish? Try combining them in this medley. It received rave reviews at our volunteer fire department meeting. Now, I make it for other covered-dish suppers.
