This recipe was given to me by a friend and it's one the entire family likes. Whenever we have a family get-together, I'm asked to bring this salad.

Garden State Salad

My state is known as the "Garden State" because it produces such a bounty of fine crops, and I like this recipe because it uses so many of them.

I like food with a little zip to it, and this recipe fills the bill. It's especially good served over rice.

My family thinks this delicious danish is a real treat. It's a treat to make, too, since you mix it up at night, then just roll it out and bake the next morning.

You don't have to be Irish to enjoy this savory stew. Homemade dumplings make it extra special.

Bacon-Cheese Appetizer Pie

I first made this for an open house 3 years ago and everybody liked it. It's very easy to make and tastes delicious. Cheesecake is popular in these parts - it's fun to have it for an appetizer instead of dessert for a change.

Meet the Cook: In my kitchen, leftover roast frequently ends up in this filling salad. While we live in the city, we're surrounded by a park. So a touch of the country's near. Our four girls are 6, 4 and 3 (yes...the youngest are twins).

Asian Beef and Cauliflower Stew

Asian Beef and Cauliflower Stew

Meet the Cook: Next to hamburger, round steak probably is the most frequent dinner "guest" at our place! I'm always experimenting with recipes, changing them to fit our tastes...this one's easy and good. Our little town has a post office, a cafe, two gas stations and two country stores. My husband and I have a pair of sons, 13 and 9, and a daughter, 7. I work part-time in the cafeteria at their school (it's small, with only about 100 students or so) helping prepare lunch. -Deborah Cole, Wolf Creek, Oregon

Zucchini/Herb Pate

Meet the Cook: A friend gave me the recipe for this pate after she'd served it at a formal wedding reception. But I make it most often to spread on crackers at picnics, potlucks and other casual get-togethers. My family - my husband, son and I - live on a small acreage. We all enjoy gardening (I grow my own herbs and vegetables). Hunting for antiques is a frequent activity of ours, too! -Melissa Sullivan, Iuka, Kansas

Squash and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Squash and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Meet the Cook: The first summer that my husband and I were retired, we had an abundance of squash. I was raised on a farm and taught nothing should go to waste, so I hunted in my recipe file and found this one. I've made it often ever since. Cooking's one of my favorite ways to have fun...if I live to be 100, I am sure there will still be many recipes in my "to-do" file. We also enjoy travel - with three children and eight grandchildren scattered, it's a good thing! -Erlene Cornelius, Spring City, Tennessee

Contest-Winning Garden Harvest Chili

Meet the Cook: I started making my chili back when we lived near a huge farmers' market that sold all sorts of vegetables. Be as creative as you like with ingredients. My husband loves chili, and this is a nice change from the traditional type. I've always enjoyed cooking - I grew up in a family with five girls. These days, I can count on our own youngsters (they're 4 and 2) to help me out! -Judy Sloter, Charles City, Iowa
