Meet the Cook: We used to raise our own hogs. This recipe was given me by a fellow farmer who also had pork on the dinner table a couple of times a week.
I'm a dietitian at the local VA hospital. Cooking, of course, is one of my top pastimes! My husband and I have four children and one grandson.

From just two trees, we get an abundance of pears. So I'm always looking for new ideas on how to use them. This elegant roast offers a delicious way to incorporate pears into a main dish stuffing and glaze.
I make this roast every Christmas, much to the delight of family and friends. The recipe was passed down from my mother, so I've been using it for years. The succulent stuffing is oh-so-tasty!

I work in a kitchen preparing lunch for the students at a small private school. I enjoy cooking and entertaining friends and family. My husband and I often cook the meals together for these gatherings.
A tender, savory pork roast gets dressed up for the holidays in this tangy apricot sauce. It's wonderful old-fashioned dish that's a family favorite. It looks so pretty on the table. —Dorothy Pritchett, Wills Point, Texas
