I first learned about these quick crowd-pleasers from a next-door neighbor when I sniffed the delightful aroma of a batch baking.

My husband didn't care for fruitcake (which I love) - till he tasted this one. He and I have three children. He's an avid fishermen...when others are canning fruits and vegetables, I'm busy canning and smoking salmon! -Clare Brooks, Juneau, Alaska

Praline Sundae Topping

Necessity can be the mother of recipes, too! I came up with this one as a way of using up the extra evaporated milk I had from making fudge. My husband farms with his father—raising hogs and cattle plus growing corn and soybeans. Hobbies I enjoy include gardening, baking bread, reading...and sewing when I find time. Our 5-year-old is our only child right now, but I'm expecting her little brother or sister to come along about any day!
