My fiance and I like to hunt for wild asparagus come the spring. He's not much of a vegetable eater—but when I roll up these easy, nutritious appetizers, he can't get enough of them. The roll-ups are ideal for children too—they're a fun way to "disguise" vegetables they usually turn down!

My husband and I have been married almost 40 years, and we have 10 children and half a dozen grandchildren. So I'm used to cooking for crowds! We live out in the country on a small acreage with a big garden. Our daughter enjoys making different kinds of vinegar, and helping her to use them up is how this recipe came about. It always draws umm-umm-good reviews when I serve it at family potlucks or with a casserole and rolls.

These buns regularly get packed as part of my husband's lunch! I've copied this recipe for many people—one of the nice things about it is that it also makes very good breadsticks to take to covered-dish suppers or take to picnics. I like to cook...and taste, too! In addition, I enjoy sewing and all kinds of crafts, and I've been fortunate to win several blue ribbons at Country Fair.

Set out a basket of these pleasing "lollipops" at your next bazaar or family event and watch them disappear! You can easily create characters by icing the cookies with store-bought frosting like the CT home economists did here or serve them plain just as Jan Cassidy of El Reno, Oklahoma often does. "Our children love eating cookies either way," Jan details. "What I enjoy is the fact that serving the sweets on sticks like this keeps messy hands to a minimum."—Jan Cassidy, El Reno, Oklahoma

Meet the Cook: When I first made this pie for my family, the reactions weren't real words - they were more "Ooh!" and "Mmm!" I created it to enter in a local fair. My goal was an apple pie like no other, and it ended up winning third prize. ("That was very interesting!" one judge said.) Working with children is something I love. In fact, I hold "Fun with Food" classes after school for elementary students ages 6-8. My own family consists of my husband and our daughter, 11. -Lisa DiNuccio, Boxford, Massachusetts
