At the Dairy Hollow House, a popular country inn and restaurant I ran with my husband, Ned, we enjoyed serving food that went beyond one region or nationality. California almonds add a delicious twist to this Southern recipe. We've since turned Dairy Hollow House into a non-profit writers' colony.—Crescent Dragonwagon, Eureka Springs, Arkansas
