I altered a friend's recipe for crab-stuffed chicken to include one of my favorite vegetables- spinach. Now my husband requests this elegant entree all the time. Served over rice, it's special enough for company.
Potato lovers will go crazy for this delicious bake from my mother-in-law. The creamy combination of Yukon Golds and sweet potatoes goes well with poultry or roasts. This recipe tastes great reheated, although leftovers are rare.
While visiting friends in New Zealand, I watched this dessert being made. Back at home, I came up with my own version. It’s great with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream. —Carol Simpkins, Santa Cruz, California
This recipe was handed down to me by my mother. It's so easy to make and always gets compliments. I like topping the nutty meringues with strawberries at Christmas, and I use peaches during the summer.

The flavorful filling at the center of these yummy candies tastes like genuine chocolate chip cookie dough…with no worry about raw eggs. That's what makes them so appealing. And they're easy to make. —Lanita Dedon, Slaughter, Louisiana
This pie was always a family favorite at holidays. Everyone thought I'd worked all day to make it, but it's actually so easy to assemble. It's handy to have in the freezer when unexpected company stops in for coffee and dessert. —Arletta Slocum, Venice, Florida
I can't take all the credit for these winning burgers. My husband's uncle passed down the special barbecue sauce recipe. We love it on everything...it was only natural to try it on, and in, burgers.

When our family is invited to holiday gatherings, this pie usually comes with us. The recipe is very versatile. You can make it with a double crust or replace the pears with baking apples. Serve it with ice cream or whipped topping. —Helen Toulantis, Wantagh, New York
