Crunch Swiss and Ham Appetizers

We farm 2,000 acres and raise a few thousand chicken, so I'm often too busy to cook much in the summer. These appetizers are quick and easy, though, and perfect for hot days when you want to eat light. During the winter, when we have more time to entertain, they're also a great hit with guests.

My husband and I both work full-time, and taxiing our two teenagers around town leaves me little time in the kitchen. Using prepared graham cracker crust and canned pie filling, I can extend a no-bake mix to make two light, fancy-looking pies in less than 15 min. -Pam Noffke, Tyler, Texas

Whole Wheat Butterhorns

Whole Wheat Butterhorns

I take Whole Wheat Butterhorns to potluck suppers, and I serve them to guests—they've always brought many requests for the recipe. They're a favorite at home, too. The rolls don't take long to make, and they freeze very well for future use. My husband and I have four married children and three grandchildren. We have a hay and cattle operation, and he's also a carpenter. I enjoy gardening...every year I can and freeze my harvest, then share the bounty with friends and family.
