With peaches and pecans among the ingredients, I think this recipe definitely reflects my state. My family really enjoys it.

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).

Meet the Cook: This recipe has been passed down for generations in my family - it helps to use up the late-summer squash from the garden, and it'll keep for several days in the refrigerator. Wherever I take it, I have to take the recipe, too! Now that we're retired (we have one son), my husband and I enjoy being at home with each other, gardening...and trying out plenty of recipes. -Billie Blanton, Kingsport, Tennessee

During the holidays, I'll at times serve this unusual salad in place of cranberry sauce. It goes well with pork or poultry . Honestly, though, it's good with any everyday meal, too. It's just a little tart, so it rounds out rich food. I've been cooking ever since I made corn bread to surprise my family when I was 9. My brothers wouldn't eat it—but my parents did! My husband and I are dairy farmers in partnership with our grown son.

This recipe is one of my favorites! It's so simple—I can make it the night before, throw on the topping at the last minute and take it to a picnic or family gathering. —Joyce Carpenter, Darlington, Indiana

As far back as I can recall, my mother and grandmother made this salad...with a few of the ingredients "missing". You see, one night, I was preparing dinner for my future husband—who just happened to be a chef. Naturally, I wanted to impress him with my cooking! But my cupboards were bare—except for a can of "chick-peas" and one of olives. Into the salad they went. That was nearly 7 years ago now...and I'm still serving it the same way today!

Carrot/Lentil Salad

I got this recipe in a "swap" with one of my sisters. People usually aren't too familiar with lentils, so they'll at first try only a little. Before long, though, they'll ask to have the bowl passed back down so they can take a "real" helping! We live on a small livestock farm—raising goats, rabbits and chickens—and I've found this salad's an ideal dish to take out to the field. My husband and I have four children, ranging in age from 6 years to 6 months.

Garden Fresh Salad

Frugal farm women like myself enjoy fixing meals from their own gardens. This is one of the best salads I've ever tried. It tastes like a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich (without the bread)! My whole family loves it.

Molded Asparagus Salad

We enjoy this salad in the spring with fried chicken. It's also good with turkey or chicken casseroles during winter. I even served it at Thanksgiving instead of a Waldorf salad. I began cooking when I was 8 years old. My parents did the farm chores before breakfast, so I decided I'd surprise them one morning by making biscuits while they were outside. I ended up with the dough on both hands that just wouldn't let loose—I can still see my mother's big grin when she came in and spotted me!

Asparagus and Tomato Salad

Our house is full of asparagus "fans"—my husband, our daughter and I can't get enough of it! My recipe is one I created years ago. I wanted to serve a cold dish in place of a hot vegetable at a dinner we were having for family and friends, and this salad was the result. I've found people who don't normally care for asparagus enjoy it prepared this way.

Sesame Beef and Asparagus Salad

Especially during the summertime, this makes a nice light meal. When I prepare it for guests, I'll also serve rice and bread—it's quick and easy, but it always wins me many compliments! I'm a homemaker with two small children, and cooking's one of my favorite hobbies.
