Creamy Rhubarb Crepes

Fixing rhubarb this way brings a spring "zing" to the table. I adapted this crepe recipe, which originally featured strawberry jelly, from one I loved as a child. My husband declared it a "winner". He even came up with its name.

These golden brown cookies will remind you of German chocolate cake, with chocolate chips and coconut in the batter and a yummy pecan-coconut frosting. A drizzle of chocolate tops them off in a festive way. -Diane Selich Vassar, Michigan

Meet the Cook: My husband likes lemon meringue pie, so I figured this would appeal to him. It's become his favorite birthday cake. Our children are 14, 11, 8 and 3. -Debra Blair, Glenwood, Minnesota

Meet the Cook: Over the years, I've collected lots of squash recipes. This one came from a friend, and it's been a hit everywhere. My husband, our two youngsters (6 and 4) and I live out in the country - camping's a favorite pastime! -Michele Van Dewerker, Roseboom, New York

Squash Custard Pie

Squash Custard Pie

Meet the Cook: Acorn squash has been a favorite of mine since I was little and my mother baked it with sugar and cinnamon. This particular pie was something I improvised. We love pumpkin pie...but had fresh squash in excess. So I came up with this new variation! It's good to take to potlucks, to pie or cake walks at school - or to serve as a different dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmas. We (my husband and I have a 10-year-old son) moved out to the country to get away from the crowds. Our home's on 15 acres. We're grazing a few cattle this year, and deer, wild pigs and an occasional skunk visit at night. -Mary Kelly, Hopland, California

The first Christmas that I baked these, I ended up quickly making a second batch! The whole family enjoyed them. —Darlene Weaver, Lebanon, Pennsylvania

Chocolate Pound Cake

You'll find this cake is good with ice cream, but that it's also delicate enough to serve small pieces for a tea. My husband served in the military, and we spent 22 years moving around before "retiring" here. He's been a high school teacher, and I've been a wedding consultant. Now we're retiring again so we can have more time to spend with our two daughters and four granddaughters in the Midwest. "Grandpa" is looking forward to some good fishing!

This is a delicious cake-it's so moist! It's great for taking to picnics in summertime, since it travels well. It also keeps for several days in the refrigerator.

Caramel Apple Cream Pie

Caramel Apple Cream Pie

Meet the Cook: When I first made this pie for my family, the reactions weren't real words - they were more "Ooh!" and "Mmm!" I created it to enter in a local fair. My goal was an apple pie like no other, and it ended up winning third prize. ("That was very interesting!" one judge said.) Working with children is something I love. In fact, I hold "Fun with Food" classes after school for elementary students ages 6-8. My own family consists of my husband and our daughter, 11. -Lisa DiNuccio, Boxford, Massachusetts
