The homemade oil and vinegar dressing is what makes this salad unique. Plus, it features two kinds of lettuce and garden-fresh tomatoes and onions. To save time, I make the dressing in advance and set it aside until supper.Michele Bently, Niceville, Florida
Carrots are readily available year-round, but their beautiful harvest color is perfect this time of year. These lightly sweet strips get unique flavor from cinnamon, which enhances the fresh carrot taste. Give this special yet simple side dish a try!

My family just can't seem to get enough of these fun, cheesy rolls. They have a delightful texture from the cornmeal and are a great switch from traditional dinner rolls. I like to serve them with spaghetti, lasagna and stew.

I wanted a holiday fruitcake made with butter, honey , eggs and cream. When I couldn't find a recipe, I created this one. I like this cake because it's not as sweet as many traditional varieties yet is loaded with fruits and nuts.

These cheesy, hearty potatoes are a super morning side dish. Because they take no time to fix, I prepare them often for me and my husband. They go great with just about any type of entree.Judy Dupree, Thief River Falls, Minnesota
I found this recipe years ago and substituted Cajun stewed tomatoes for a bolder taste. Now I prepare this dish for out-of-state guests who want to taste some Cajun food. Everyone who tries it gives it high marks. Plus, it's easy to prepare.
