Frosted Ginger Cookies

My husband and I just built a new house in a small rural community in western New York. I work all day in an office, and I enjoy baking in the evening to relax. The wonderful aroma of these soft delicious cookies in our oven has made our new house smell like home. -Jeanne Matteson, South Dayton, New York

Apple Cake with Caramel Topping

Meet the Cook: A wonderful harvest of apples that we picked up at a local orchard one year inspired me to adjust a recipe I'd seen and come up with this moist cake. After we were married, I learned through trial and error (at times, lots of those!) to cook for my husband. Today, he and I have two grown children. -Paulette Reyenga, Brantford, Ontario

Husband Don and I love pie, but we can't eat a who 9-inch pie by ourselves. So I make these easy tarts using rhubarb and fruit from our red raspberry bushes. Sometimes I substitute apples, peaches or our homegrown blueberries for the rhubarb. -Naomi Olson Hamilton, Michigan

Raisin Date Bread Pudding

Raisin Date Bread Pudding

Raisin Date Bread Pudding

All my leftover bread ends (raisin bread is a favorite in this house) and buns go in the freezer. Then, when I've stashed away enough, I whip up a batch of this pudding. It's an all-occasion dish—I've made it for holidays, potlucks, picnics...for any occasion or no occasion! I've been making my bread pudding since I was a girl—the recipe originated with my great-aunt. My husband, who cash-crops with his father and brother, loves it. We're the parents of two children, a 2-year-old girl and a boy born just last year—on Christmas morning!

Valentine Butter Cookies

These cookies are my grandchildren's favorite. I've even shaped the dough in the form of their initials for special occasions. They make a great dessert anytime.

One thing's certain each time I serve this...someone will ask for the recipe! My family...my husband and our children, 12 and 9—and I live on the outskirts of town. I grow my rhubarb, and my plant gets bigger every year.

I especially like serving this dessert at a cookout or at any event where there are children—it's always a big hit! —Beth Wanek, Little Chute, Wisconsin

Zesty Lemon Curd

Zesty Lemon Curd

There are lemon trees in our backyard, so I'm always on the prowl for new ways to use the fruit. When we shared some of our homegrown citrus with neighbors—Canadians who were spending the winter here—the wife "repaid" us by giving us this recipe! The curd keeps well, and it can be used for any meal. My husband likes it on waffles and toast for breakfast, but it's also a great dessert topping on plain cake or ice cream. I don't work outside the home, and Herb's retired from the Soil Conservation Service. That leaves me plenty of time to try out new recipes! All told, we have four grown children and seven grandchildren. —Jean Gaines, Bullhead City, Arizona

Nutty Cheesecake Squares

Nutty Cheesecake Squares

I grew up on a farm and have had a lot of good recipes handed down to me. This is one of my favorite desserts to serve when guests come over or at family gatherings and church suppers.

Walnut Tart

Walnut Tart

Meet the Cook: The first time my husband tried this, he said there ought to be a law against anything tasting so good! I've served it at picnics and family occasions...and even once at a bridal shower. It's fine either as a dessert or for breakfast. We are the parents of three grown children and grandparents of two. -Rovena Wallace, Trafford, Pennsylvania

These scrumptious brownies get dressed up with a delicious browned butter frosting. The combination is delightfully different and assures they vanish fast around the house or at a party. -Peggy Mangus, Worland, Wyoming
