Recipe Spotlight

Roasted Pumpkin Nachos

Previously, I had made this dish with black beans and corn off the cob in the summer. Wanting to try it with fresh fall ingredients, I replaced the corn with roasted pumpkin—yum! It's also good with butternut squash. —Lesle Harwood, Douglassville, Pennsylvania

When we were newlyweds, our first Christmas was pretty lean. I usually make presents, but that year I had no idea what I could afford to put together. A good friend gave me a special gift—this recipe and a sack of ingredients. I think of her every time I stir up this mix. —Patti Holland, Parker, Colorado

I first made this for an open house 3 years ago and everybody liked it. It's very easy to make and tastes delicious. Cheesecake is popular in these parts - it's fun to have it for an appetizer instead of dessert for a change.

This dip is always a big hit with men—maybe because of the hearty blend of flavors. It stands up great as a leftover besides...if there's any left over. I was raised on a Montana ranch, and my grandmother taught me to cook when I was 10 years old. My husband and I (we have one married daughter) are retired now. To stay active, I bowl and do crafts. My collection of cookbooks keeps right on growing, too—I started it more than 50 years ago.

Here's a fun way to enjoy fresh-picked beans...with a creamy well-seasoned dip. I first enjoyed it at a friend's house and have made it for several years. Try the dip with other vegetables, too, such as broccoli, celery and carrots. -Martha Bergman, Cleveland Heights, Ohio

My sister and I won blue ribbons in 4-H with this bread many years ago. The recipe makes a beautiful, round golden loaf. With a layer of cheese peeking out of every slice, it's definitely worth the effort. -Melanie Mero, Ida, Michigan
