Meet the Cook: If you're looking for a different stuffing this year, you'll find these balls are both tasty and easy to prepare. Cooking has been a favorite pastime of mine since my husband and I retired (I used to operate a beauty salon). We had 80 acres and kept 2-1/2 of them to build our new country home on. -Bernadine Dirmeyer, Harpster, Ohio

I guess I'm one of those women "who have moved from the country in body but not in heart"! Although I'm an attorney in a large city, my parents are ranchers. And, since they once grew rice, that's a staple of my cooking. Because of my busy schedule, I like dishes like this that can be easily reheated throughout the week. This was actually a soup recipe when I first found it. I needed a side dish, however, so I simply reduced the amount of water.

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.

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.
