Chicken with Cheese Sauce

Chicken with Cheese Sauce

Chicken with Cheese Sauce

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

Super Strawberry Shortcake

Super Strawberry Shortcake

"Wow!" is what people say when I set this dessert on the table. It's fun to serve since it's attractive, not overly sweet and bursting with the wondrous flavor of field-fresh strawberries. -Renee Bisch, Wellesley, Ontario

Coconut/Banana Cream Pie

Coconut/Banana Cream Pie

Coconut/Banana Cream Pie

After tasting it at a bake sale, I got the recipe for this pie from a friend, then adapted it. I make it for family gatherings—it's everyone's favorite treat—and also for when company comes by. Our children—6 and 3—"help" me with baking. They've learned many of their measurement in the kitchen!

Golden Ham Croquettes

Golden Ham Croquettes

Golden Ham Croquettes

Neighbors happened to drop in the first time I made these...they loved them! I say my hobby's crafting. Actually, though, it's helping my husband with ranch work and running after the kids. We have four of them, from 13 to 9.

Apple Roly-Poly

Apple Roly-Poly

Apple Roly-Poly

Apple Roly-Poly isn't very fancy, but it's genuine "Down East" fare. It came from my grandmother. With 13 children plus the men at Grampa's sawmill, she had to do lots of cooking each day! My husband and I have four children, 10 to 3. We crop 1,500 acres of corn, soybean, wheat and white beans.

Saucy Mocha Pudding

Saucy Mocha Pudding

Saucy Mocha Pudding

Both my grandmother and mother made this dessert. I have five children, though (four grandchildren now also)—when my turn at the recipe came, I learned it was best to double it! We've eaten Saucy Mocha Pudding with ice cream and whipped cream, but it's scrumptious just plain. It's very easy to prepare. So don't wait for a special occasion to try it...it sweetness any meal.

Best Rosy Rhubarb Salad

Best Rosy Rhubarb Salad

Best Rosy Rhubarb Salad

During the holidays, I'll at times serve this unusual salad in place of cranberry sauce. It goes well with pork or poultry . Honestly, though, it's good with any everyday meal, too. It's just a little tart, so it rounds out rich food. I've been cooking ever since I made corn bread to surprise my family when I was 9. My brothers wouldn't eat it—but my parents did! My husband and I are dairy farmers in partnership with our grown son.

Scrambled Egg Casserole with Cheese Sauce

Scrambled Egg Casserole with Cheese Sauce

Scrambled Egg Casserole with Cheese Sauce

This has become the brunch dish I'm known for here in Pearland. The recipe combines the favorite flavors of hearty, old-time country breakfasts with the ease of a modern, make-ahead dish. Try it—you'll enjoy it.

Aunt Rose's Fantastic Butter Toffee

Aunt Rose's Fantastic Butter Toffee

Aunt Rose's Fantastic Butter Toffee

I don't live in the country, but I love everything about it—especially good old-fashioned home cooking! Every year, you'll find me at our County Fair, entering a different recipe contest. I find new recipes everywhere—especially in my large cookbook collection. This toffee, however, comes from the "heart". It's been a favorite in my family since I was a little girl!

Tangy Lemon Cheesecake

Tangy Lemon Cheesecake

Tangy Lemon Cheesecake

This dessert gets added spark from a gingersnap crust and a luscious lemon sauce. The mix of sweet and tart is unexpected and delightful. I came up with the recipe based on several others I encountered on a trip to California with my husband for our 15th anniversary.

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.
