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

Since my husband's a Navy meteorologist, we've sampled food all over the world. I adapted this recipe from one I was given while we were stationed on the Aleutian Islands. Fresh meat was difficult to obtain in that part of Alaska, so I learned to make many meals featuring grains and legumes instead! We're looking forward to retiring soon to a small farm in central Maine. All three of our children were 4-H leader for 9 years.

"My mother had surgery a few years back in spring, so my two sisters and I were challenged to prepare dishes like this that would keep well and still taste great as leftovers," recalls Nicole LeCroy of Nashville, Tennessee. "Mom got her appetite back when she tried this cool and crunch asparagus that gets a flavor boost from soy sauce. It's a nice accompaniment to chicken, roast beef or ham."

Meet the Cook: As a pastor's wife, I cook for crowds often. This dish's always a hit. My own family - we have a daughter, 11, and a son, 10 - thinks the potatoes are a must with London broil or marinated grill chicken breasts. I frequently prepare them for guests, too. The recipe is very adaptable, and the results disappear. -Michelle Grigsby, Beavercreek, Ohio

In October, my husband helps harvest cranberries at a friend's bogs, so I have access to the very freshest ingredients. Their bold autumn flavor pairs up perfectly with sweet potatoes to make a seasonal side dish my family looks forward to.

Like many cooks, I often combine the best parts of different recipes to come up with my own original, and that's how "Zucchini in Dill Cream Sauce" was created. It's a great way to use two of my favorite foods. My husband, Albert, and I were dairy farmers until we retired in 1967, so I always use fresh, real dairy products in my recipes. We recently celebrated our 50th anniversary. We live on 3 acres now and grow a small garden—with a couple zucchini hills, of course!
