Christmas Jam

Christmas Jam

Christmas Jam

I have a passion for cooking, and it's probably my grandmother I can thank for it. She was a marvelous cook who could really stretch a food dollar. All the same, I've had my share of trial and error over the years. Shortly after we were married, my husband and I were invited to a family picnic. I made the prettiest potato salad you'd ever hope to seen. There was only one problem with that dish I was so proud of—I hadn't cooked the potatoes!

Goose with Apple-Prune Stuffing

Does my family like this dish? I guess so—they call it "lip-smacking' goose! We're retired farmers with three children, all grown, and six grandchildren.

Icebox Apple Pie

Icebox Apple Pie

This is great apple country and a lot of people drive many miles to pick their own. This recipe is very handy because I can make it in about 15 minutes.

Crunch Swiss and Ham Appetizers

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.

Apricot-Filled Pork Tenderloin

This flavorful main course is a great company offering. The tenderloin tastes wonderful and looks so pretty when it's sliced to reveal a golden apricot center. In the 15 years I've been using this recipe, it has never failed me.

Turkey with Cherry Stuffing

Turkey with Cherry Stuffing

This moist stuffing, with its fruity blend of raisins and tart cherries, is a sweet twist on a traditional version. It's a tasty complement to tender poultry slices. Be prepared to dish up second helpings when you serve this bird.

This lovely ring has a sweet spicy flavor, and the pretty shape makes it a special treat to serve at Christmas dinner with Cardamom Butter. I've been cooking since I was very young, and yeast breads are my favorite things to bake. -Judy Wilson, Vermont, Illinois

Turkey Dumpling Stew

My mom made this stew when I was young, and it was always a hit. Since it's not time-consuming to make I can fix it on a weekend for our children, who love the tender dumplings. —Becky Mohr of Appleton, Wisconsin

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

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

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"!
