This fast feast, for the eyes as well as the stomach, results if you rustle up this soup.—Janet Frieman, Kenosha, Wisconsin

This recipe is one of my favorites! It's so simple—I can make it the night before, throw on the topping at the last minute and take it to a picnic or family gathering. —Joyce Carpenter, Darlington, Indiana

Classic Dilled Cucumbers

Simple and classic, these dilled cucumbers are a perfect side for a summer picnic or potluck. We like them alongside grilled hamburgers.

Dilly Asparagus

This makes a good cool vegetable on a hot day—it's long been in my recipe file, and we have Dilly Asparagus often. My husband and I farm ranch in central Texas. I enjoy cooking, especially when I'm trying out new recipes shared by friends or by other Country Woman subscribers. (I love CW!)

Shepherd's Pie Casserole

Shepherd's Pie Casserole

Shepherd's Pie Casserole

Meet the Cook: As the second oldest of eight children in a busy farm family, I had plenty of opportunity to practice cooking while I was growing up. Now that our three children are grown, I am cooking just for my husband and me - though few weeks pass without visitors. For "country eaters", this hearty pie is perfect! -Diane Gillingham, Carman, Manitoba

Pasta Meatball Stew

Meet the Cook: Growing up on the farm, I participated in 4-H cooking club activities. Nowadays, I like to visit Mom, Dad and their varied animals...including a llama. -Pat Jelinek, Kitchener, Ontario

These saucepan brownies capture the rich flavor of a favorite cake with a few easy steps. Broiling the sweet coconut topping makes it goey and good. —Karen Grimes, Stephens City, Virginia

Ham and Lentil Soup

Ham and Lentil Soup

Ham and Lentil Soup

This actually is a combination of two soup recipes I came across and adapted. I often serve it for Sunday dinner, making enough so there are leftovers for my husband's lunch thermos. He's a bricklayer and regularly works outside during winter. We're the parents of three children—17, 16 and 11.

Cherry Almond Preserves

Cherry Almond Preserves

Cherry Almond Preserves

This recipe came from my mother-in-law. It's very old-fashioned—in fact, the friend who gave it to her used to cook it up on an old wood stove. With all the cherry orchards here in Bitterroot Valley, I make two batches of these preserves each summer. (I get the cherries from a nearby cannery by the gallons!) My family likes them on fresh bread, muffins, pancakes and even ice cream—the consistency's similar to a topping. I have to be careful, though, and ration the jars out or they'd be the first thing to disappear from the root cellar! Both my husband and I serve as 4-H leaders. We have three children—girls 16 and 14 and a son who's 12.

Honey Bran Muffins

Honey Bran Muffins

Honey Bran Muffins

Meet the Cook: There's a deliciously different taste to these muffins, thanks to the pineapple juice and raisins they contain. We have them for breakfast, lunch and snacks. My husband and I enjoy gardening...I do flowers, and he does vegetables. -Pauline Rohloff, Endeavor, Wisconsin

Old-World Sauerbraten

Old-World Sauerbraten

Old-World Sauerbraten

Meet the Cook: The secret to this sauerbraten is that it doesn't require marinating. I've been making it for 20 years now. It's an excellent family dinner, and you can also serve it to company along with potato pancakes, red cabbage and applesauce. My husband and I have three grown sons and a grandson. Cooking's my favorite hobby, but I'm an avid flea-market and antique shopper, too. -Phyllis Berenson, Cincinnati, Ohio

Cranberry Stuffing Balls

Cranberry Stuffing Balls

Cranberry Stuffing Balls

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

Chili-Cheese Bake

Chili-Cheese Bake

Chili-Cheese Bake

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.
