A local restaurant serves a similar soup but wouldn't share their recipe with me. So I developed my own, modifying a recipe for potato soup. I was really pleased at how good this "all-American" soup turned out. —Joanie Shawhan, Madison, Wisconsin

A good friend made us this rich, comforting soup after the birth of our son. It was such a help to have dinner taken care of until I was back on my feet. This yummy dish is so simple to fix that now I give a pot of it (along with the recipe) to other new mothers. -Joanna Sargent, Sandy, Utah

Because I'm our town's postmaster, I can bake only in my spare time. When I do, I especially like making breads and desserts. I'm one of six children, and I learned to cook young! This recipe came from my aunt in Alabama. I've used it in all sorts of different ways over the years—as strawberry shortcake...tucked under ice cream and chocolate syrup like a hot fudge sundae...or like pound cake with powdered sugar.—Karen Conrad, East Troy, Wisconsin
