I'm a busy mother of two young children. I work in our school office and help my husband on our hog and cattle farm. When I find time to bake a treat, I like it to be special. The creamy filling gives traditional peanut butter cookies a new twist. -Debbie Kokes, Tabor, South Dakota

While living in Canada, I sampled this colorful dish at a neighbor's. The following Christmas, I served it instead of my traditional turkey, and I received numerous compliments on it. I frequently substitute shrimp or sausage for the chicken...or add all three. -Bonnie Brann, Pasco, Washington

This deliciously different salsa is versatile, fresh-tasting and colorful. People are surprised to see a salsa made with strawberries, but it's excellent over grilled chicken and pork and as a dip with corn chips. -Jean Giroux, Belchertown, Massachusetts

Herbed Cherry Tomatoes

Meet the Cook: My recipe's a good one for when you want a little fancier salad dish but one that's still quick to fix. I find it's especially popular served with grilled steak, baked potatoes and corn on the cob. I came across Herbed Cherry Tomatoes when I was a new bride searching for interesting ways that I could cook for my husband. Jerry and I now have a pair of daughters, ages 16 and 10. -Dianne Bahn, Yankton, South Dakota

The first time I took these brownies to work, I knew I'd better start making copies of the recipe—they disappeared fast! My husband and kids gobble them up quickly, too. —Pat Mueller, Mitchell, South Dakota

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.

Cinnamon Blueberry Jam

Cinnamon Blueberry Jam

Watching my grandmother can hundreds of jars of tomatoes, peaches and pears inspired me to first try making jams and jellies myself. I can remember, as a girl, going down into her cellar—all those jars on the shelves gave me such a warm homey feeling! This jam is one my family enjoys on warm homemade corn or blueberry muffins. The cinnamon's a bit of a surprise. —Barbara Burns, Phillipsburg, New Jersey

It was an abundance of dill in my garden that led me to try this. My family liked the taste so much that, from then on, I made my cabbage rolls with dill. My husband and I have seven children, ranging in age from 36 to 17.
