Fixing rhubarb this way brings a spring "zing" to the table. I adapted this crepe recipe, which originally featured strawberry jelly, from one I loved as a child. My husband declared it a "winner". He even came up with its name.
Frozen meatballs and a jar of sweet-and-sour sauce make this microwave meal a last-minute lifesaver when racing against the clock. The flavorful sauce is dressed up with a hint of garlic and nicely coats the colorful mixture of meatballs, carrots, green pepper and onion.

Its pretty braided shape and pleasant dill flavor distinguishes this golden-brown loaf from other yeast breads. My family loves to eat it alongside soup, roast beef or pot roast. I almost always make two loaves-one just isn't enough!
When our family sits down for breakfast on days when this do-ahead dish is on the menu, I can relax and join them. I like to serve it with fresh fruit and homemade rolls. Plus, it adds a nice touch to a celebration brunch.
This rich treat is a hit every time I serve it. The chilled filling, brimming with bananas, is refreshing, and the cookie crust provides a chocolaty crunch. Even a small slice will satisfy the biggest sweet tooth. —Taylor Carroll, Parkesburg, Pennsylvania
Not only odes this easy entree taste awesome, but it's good for you, too. A little brown sugar, ground ginger and Dijon mustard help give the moist tenderloin its incredible flavor, and the tangy salsa can be made in no time.

Garlic, onions, soy sauce and onion soup mix flavor the tender beef in these savory hot sandwiches served with a tasty rich broth for dipping. The seasoned beef makes delicious cold sandwiches, too.

My family and friends love this dessert, and I've shared the recipe several times. The crunchy nut crust and colorful raspberry filling make it special enough for guests. During the holidays, I substitute a can of whole-berry cranberry sauce for the raspberries.
As a farm girl, I often made Christmas goodies with my mother for our family of eight candy-loving kids. Now, my own children and grandkids say the season wouldn't by the same without a tray filled with this chocolaty peanut brittle.
This plate-filling sausage dish appeals to most every appetite, from basic meat-and-potatoes fans to gourmets. My daughter, a Montana wheat rancher's wife, says she serves it often to satisfy her hardworking family.
My mother brought this recipe back with her from Hawaii about 25 years ago. The tender meat, pineapple-coconut stuffing and sweet-sour sauce made it a favorite of my family and friends. I keep copies of the recipe on hand to share.
