A double dose of corn - whole kernel plus cream style - teams up with broccoli in this colorful side dish. The green and yellow went well with my table decorations, which included toy John Deere farm equipment.

I dreamed up this family favorite after dining on something similar in a restaurant. My family asks for these potatoes on special occasions, but I like them anytime. They're a nice change from our everyday mashed potatoes.

This versatile side dish was dairy-good with the steaks we grilled and is delicious with other meats as well. A creamy cheese sauce and crunchy topping make this potato casserole ever-popular for family dinners and potlucks.

This is one of my favorite ways to use butternut squash, which I love not just for its flavor but also because it's full of vitamin A. I usually make this when I am grilling steak or chicken. —Esther Horst, Monterey, Tennessee
By adding a few fine egg noodles to a rice pilaf, you can have a deliciously different side dish. Terrific with fish, this dish also goes well with meat or poultry. —Kathy Schrecengost

Mom would prepare home-grown green beans using this recipe, and boy did they ever taste good. The bacon provides rich flavor and the brown sugar a touch of sweetness. This is one irresistible side dish.

I can't say whether leftovers from this eye-catching roast are good, because we never have any! I've been making this flavorful main dish for years and have never been disappointed.

This yummy rice mixture is a delightful change from our traditional corn bread dressing. To make it a meal in itself, I sometimes will add finely chopped cooked chicken and a little more broth before baking.
