Brussels Sprouts and Sausage Soup
Ellen Tafeen, Portola Valley, CA
Tafeen's soup makes an easy, substantial, and delicious main course, especially if you serve it with a loaf of hearty rye bread and a fresh green salad.
Roxanne Chan, Albany, CA
Chan was inspired to make this nutritious salad when she spotted a stray bag of edamame in her freezer. We love the way the salad's clean, fresh flavors brighten up the winter dinner table.
Barbara Holt, Paradise, CA
Holt's husband's grandmother made this cake, so they know it as "Grandma O'Connor's Boiled Raisin Cake." We like its humble, homey appeal ― it's the kind of cake you want to eat for breakfast or as an after-school snack on a rainy day.
Lemon-drop Chicken Wings
Elizabeth Farquhar, Portland, OR
The idea for these lemony wings, perfect for a winter cocktail party or to serve during a big game, came to Farquhar as she sipped a lemon-drop cocktail.
