Reuben Baked Potatoes

Reuben Baked Potatoes

Reuben Baked Potatoes

When I was a girl during the Depression, we had enough cabbages to sink a ship! This was a family favorite my mother made often. After I was married, I served these potatoes to family and friends as a side dish to pork. I still make them for potlucks (I attend two of them a month), and everyone likes them. I have three grown children—plus five grandchildren whom I keep supplied with frozen yogurt and cookies!

Corn Balls

Corn Balls

Whenever I serve my Corn Balls, it's just about certain someone will ask for the recipe—I've gotten more requests for it than any other I've ever tried. I usually make them when we have company as a nice change-of-pace side dish. They're great with ham, steak or roast beef. My husband and I have two young children, 3 and not quite 1. I grew up on a dairy farm. Today, we live on a small farm where I tend to chickens.

Cherry Chewbilees

Cherry Chewbilees makes a good dish to carry to potlucks and parties. It's a hit for me at home, too—my husband rates it as one of his favorite desserts. We both love the country, and the small town we live in has a very rural-sounding nickname...it's know as the "Forestry Capital of the South"!

Family Cheesecake Squares

Family Cheesecake Squares

Though these squares may sound time-consuming to make, they're actually easy. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool so you can gobble them up! This recipe's been in our family for years, I like serving the squares at room temperature, but they're good cold, too. They're delicious topped with strawberries or cherry pie filling. I'm a "homebody" who enjoys any kind of cooking (for 5 years, I've been baking once a week for my husband's group at work). We have five children and three grandchildren.

Rhubarb Cherry Pie

Rhubarb Cherry Pie

When missionary friends dropped by unexpected last summer, this pie is what I served for dessert. I first made it for a church gathering 20 years ago—ever since, everyone's looked for it! As a young girl, I dreamed of being able to make pies like my mother. (Her rolling pin, which I inherited, was 2 ft. long and 8 in. wide!) In fact, this is Mom's rhubarb strawberry pie recipe with cherries instead. I love rhubarb! My husband and I—our three children are 21, 18 and 11—have a 30-acre farm, with hay and cattle, in addition to our city jobs, and I grow eight hills of rhubarb.

Golden Mashed Potatoes

Golden Mashed Potatoes

Meet the Cook: When there's no gravy with the meat, this is great to serve in place of regularly mashed potatoes. I make it often to take to picnics and church socials. My husband even made it for his family's reunion one year when I couldn't go! We have a grown son, a 17-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter. -Cindy Stith, Wickliffe, Kentucky

My mom had many "winning" recipes, and this was one of our family's favorites. I can still picture these Corn Stuffing Balls encircling the large meat platter piled high with one of her delicious entrees.

Dinner guests are always impressed when I serve this appetizing main dish. It's a delicious and pretty way to dress up plain chicken breasts.—Joyce Breeding, Falkville, Alabama

Meet the Cook: My mother-in-law gave me this recipe. It's her very favorite breakfast. We - my husband, our two sons (15 and 12) and I - also enjoy it for a light supper. Especially on a cold day, it's great with warm peach cobbler or bread pudding. -Laurie Fisher, Greeley, Colorado

This is a variation of a recipe my mom used to make. I changed a few things so it's easier to prepare. It's a hearty main dish my whole family enjoys.

German Apple Pie

German Apple Pie

I live in a big apple-producing state, so I think this recipe represents our region well. I tasted this pie many years ago when my children's babysitter made it. I asked for the recipe and have made it many times since.
