Crispy coating surrounds a velvety potato filling in these adorable puffs. They make a perfect side for meats and poultry. Best of all, the recipe makes 2 dozen, so you can use just the number you need for dinner.—Eva Tomlinson, Bryan, Ohio
Soy sauce and peanut butter flavor these crisp-tender beans. "They're a nice change from the usual green bean salads and casseroles," says Robin Joss from Ashburn, Virginia. "With a sesame seed crunch, this dish always wows guests and brings plenty of recipe requests."
When I was growing up, my dad, brother and I couldn't wait to get to the table when Mom was serving this delicious rice dish. With lots of fresh mushrooms and celery stirred in, it tastes so good you're sure to want seconds!

"The combination of potatoes, cheese, bacon and garlic dip in this recipe is fantastic," says Leslie Cunnian of Peterborough, Ontario. "The skins can be served as an appetizer or as a side dish with roast prime rib or any other entree you choose."
This recipe was developed out of desperation as I tried to keep up with the prolific "Great Green Zucchini" from our garden. My two daughters would start snacking on these before I could get them to the table. Even finicky vegetable eaters enjoy them.

The first time I tasted this casserole was at a church supper, and I immediately asked around to find out who made it. I asked the cook to share her recipe, and it has become one of my family's most-requested dishes.

My family especially enjoys this lovely, slightly sweet side dish. It looks so pretty with the harvest colors of chopped green and red peppers and orange slices tucked in with the rice.
