Maple Baked Beans

Maple Baked Beans

Maple Baked Beans

Since my husband raises hogs and my parents produce maple syrup, this recipe's a natural for me! I usually prepare Maple Baked Beans just for us during the winter. In summer, I'll often make it for family picnics and get-togethers.

Raspberry Plum Jam

Raspberry Plum Jam

Raspberry Plum Jam

The thing I like best about this jam is the way the plums stretch the flavor of the raspberries. I make it when plums are in season, and we enjoy it all winter long on toast or homemade bread. For a few years, my husband and I had a small acreage with chickens, rabbits and sheep. Although we now live in town, our hearts still belong in the country! We have six children—three of them grown, two teenagers plus a girl who's 10—and two grandchildren.

Reuben Loaf

Reuben Loaf

Reuben Loaf

When I make this bread, I almost always have to bake two loaves so that everyone gets a taste! It's especially good in the winter. In fact, last year when we went to a Christmas buffet at my husband's aunt's house—with a hearty soup as the main course—I took a Reuben Loaf along. It looks so pretty sliced and arranged on a platter, too. My husband and I are crop farmers with three young children. Cooking—especially baking—is one of the ways I relax, and I also enjoy sewing.

Peachy Rhubarb Pie

Peachy Rhubarb Pie

We have an abundance of "pieplant" in our garden, so I save every rhubarb recipe I come across. I've done a lot of cooking and baking over the 53 years I have been married. My husband especially loves the combination of rhubarb and peaches in this pie. -Phyllis Galloway, Roswell, Georgia

Macaroon Apple Pie

Macaroon Apple Pie

Macaroon Apple Pie

I found this recipe in a rural newspaper years ago. It's become one of my favorite recipes. I like to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream.

Crunchy Peanut Bark

Crunchy Peanut Bark

Crunchy Peanut Bark

Cereal and peanuts add the crunch to these sweet and peanut-buttery treats you can whip up in no time. One batch makes plenty for snacking and sharing. At Christmas, my sister and I add them to trays of homemade candies we give to the customers of the house-cleaning service we run. We're often asked for the recipe.

Northern Cherry Puffs

Northern Cherry Puffs

Michigan is the top cherry-producing state in the country. This is one of my family's favorite cherry recipes.

German Chocolate Ice Cream

German Chocolate Ice Cream

German Chocolate Ice Cream

I found this recipe years ago and have been taking it to ice cream socials ever since. But you won't want to wait for a get-together to enjoy it. The cool combination of chocolate, coconut and pecans is delicious anytime. -Peggy Key, Grant, Alabama

Peaches 'N' Cream Pie

Peaches 'N' Cream Pie

Peaches 'N' Cream Pie

In summer, my aunt and uncle provide me with tree-fresh fruit from their peach orchard. My husband gets so excited when they have a bumper crop because he knows this dessert will be on our menu often.

Pecan-Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Pecan-Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Pecan-Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

This cake's one I prepare frequently for Sunday dinner. I also make it for church meetings and to take to friends who are sick. It goes a long way—unless you have some real "chocoholics"! I've been cooking as long as I've been married, for almost 30 years. My husband's the director of a Christian youth missionary organization, and our two children are 19 and 17.
