This creamy carrot casserole is always a hit. An easy-to-fix but very special side dish, it goes well with almost any meat or poultry. Even though I serve these dressed-up-carrots often, my family still requests them for Christmas dinner.
My mom gave me the recipe for these twice-baked potatoes, and I altered them by adding garlic, bacon and green onions. They're perfect for a potluck or even an elegant meal. My two boys absolutely love them!

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
This pretty side dish is an excellent way to serve one of the first springtime vegetables from our garden. I never have leftovers since everyone goes for the fresh taste of the asparagus, the crunch of the walnuts and the zippy seasoning.
For almost 30 years, I've been preparing this zippy side dish for all sorts of gatherings. In fact, whenever I'm invited to an event that involves food, it's "understood" that I'll bring this casserole. Plus, it's a great way to use up hard-cooked eggs.

I've had to find some great recipes to use all the harvest our large garden produces every year, including this colorful combination. It's loaded with crunch and well-seasoned flavor. —Andrea Sheatz, Knox, Pennsylvania
When my mom was in her 90s, I copied all her recipes and made a cookbook that I sent as a Christmas gift to my children, nieces and nephews. These tender pork chops were always one of my favorites.
