Meet the Cook: A friend gave me the recipe for this pate after she'd served it at a formal wedding reception. But I make it most often to spread on crackers at picnics, potlucks and other casual get-togethers. My family - my husband, son and I - live on a small acreage. We all enjoy gardening (I grow my own herbs and vegetables). Hunting for antiques is a frequent activity of ours, too! -Melissa Sullivan, Iuka, Kansas

Meet the Cook: While searching for something to enhance the taste of fowl years ago, I discovered this recipe. I revised it a little, and I've since served it at Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings (it's a hit with either poultry or pork) plus used it as a food-basket gift. It's been popular besides at church bazaars I've taken it to. I grew up on a farm, and my husband (he's a cattle buyer) and I farmed for 20 years before moving to town. We have four children, all grown. -Joyce Vivian, Mitchell, Ontario

Squash Custard Pie

Meet the Cook: Acorn squash has been a favorite of mine since I was little and my mother baked it with sugar and cinnamon. This particular pie was something I improvised. We love pumpkin pie...but had fresh squash in excess. So I came up with this new variation! It's good to take to potlucks, to pie or cake walks at school - or to serve as a different dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmas. We (my husband and I have a 10-year-old son) moved out to the country to get away from the crowds. Our home's on 15 acres. We're grazing a few cattle this year, and deer, wild pigs and an occasional skunk visit at night. -Mary Kelly, Hopland, California
