Colorful corn salsa is sure to be a hit with family and friends. It’s an easy accompaniment to an outdoor cookout and adds a kick of flavor to whatever’s on the grill.—Shirley A. Glaab, Hattiesburg, Mississippi
People in my part of Tennessee love potato dishes! This one tickles my fancy so much I couldn't help sharing it.
I'm a widow with five grown children and eight grandchildren. I make these potatoes when they come to visit for family suppers and holidays. Most often, I serve them alongside meat and vegetables—but, with the cheese, they could be a main dish all by themselves.
Meet the Cook: The first summer that my husband and I were retired, we had an abundance of squash. I was raised on a farm and taught nothing should go to waste, so I hunted in my recipe file and found this one. I've made it often ever since.
Cooking's one of my favorite ways to have fun...if I live to be 100, I am sure there will still be many recipes in my "to-do" file. We also enjoy travel - with three children and eight grandchildren scattered, it's a good thing!

Meet the Cook: I started making my chili back when we lived near a huge farmers' market that sold all sorts of vegetables. Be as creative as you like with ingredients.
My husband loves chili, and this is a nice change from the traditional type. I've always enjoyed cooking - I grew up in a family with five girls. These days, I can count on our own youngsters (they're 4 and 2) to help me out!
