My twins wouldn’t eat anything that even resembled a vegetable, but they ate seconds and sometimes thirds of this fabulous spinach. I received the recipe from a friend several years ago, and it’s been part of my Thanksgiving menu ever since. I usually double or triple the recipe. My children aren’t the only ones who want extra servings!
There are so many great things about this recipe from Barbara Moravek of Jay, Florida! Sweet apples, golden raisins, celery, nuts, tuna and a tropical taste of pineapple add up to a simply wonderful salad. And leftovers are as delicious as the first bite. Sometimes Barbara substitutes grapes for the raisins.
Teri Lindquist of Gurnee, Illinois says: “I needed a speedy salad for a luncheon recently, used what I had available and everyone loved it! Light, fluffy and full of fruit, this salad could double as a healthy dessert. You can also tuck it into the kids’ lunchboxes for a fun school-day treat.”
These traditional apple turnovers are tender and flaky, with apple pie-like filling and a thin, white glaze. I freeze the extras and warm them up in the microwave. They're great with coffee. —Dorothy Bayes, Sardis, Ohio

I first made this pretty bread years ago for a 4-H project. It helped me win Grand Champion for my county and took me to the Ohio State Fair. It takes some time to make, but I pull out this recipe any time I want a breakfast or dessert that will really impress. —Kila Frank, Reedsville, Ohio
This extra-special banana bread makes a wonderful gift for friends and neighbors. The recipe makes two loaves, so I can serve one and keep the other one in the freezer so I have a last-minute gift on hand. —Beverly Sprague, Catonsville, Maryland
