My mom loves quiche, so for Mother's Day one year I created my own quiche recipe for her. I've been making it ever since. All it takes is a trip to the farmers market. If you have the ingredients, make the crust from scratch. —Yanique Douglas, Waynesboro, Pennsylvania
My mother, Nena, grew up in Cuba and learned many styles of cooking. She had a knack for making something incredibly simple taste incredibly amazing. This salad is proof. By itself, the dressing is really tart, but add the avocados and onions and it's the perfect complement. —Marina Castle, Canyon Country, California
This delicious twist on the baked potato is great for summer cookouts because the potatoes can be added to the grill while the meat is cooking. The recipe is also an excellent take-along side dish because each potato is individually wrapped in foil. If needed, it's easy to double or triple the recipe.
These individual pizzas, ready in 30 minutes or less, give you good reason not to call out for dinner. The pesto base makes the kitchen smell wonderful while it’s baking. —Kelly Evans, Kalamazoo, Michigan
A neighbor who always had a large garden showed me how to make these easy, buttery potatoes. For a flavor twist, sometimes I substitute fresh or dried dill for the parsley.—Kathie Morris, Redmond, Oregon
My family enjoys this fast and refreshing salad. It's jazzed up with a beautiful blend of red apple, pear, dried cranberries, toasted pecans and Swiss cheese. No matter when I serve it, the light dressing and fruity flavor remind me of springtime.
