Strawberry Banana Crepes

My family often has company over for breakfast or brunch, and these light fruit-topped crepes are our favorite. The sweet sensations are as fast to make as they are fabulous. You can cook the crepes the night before, refrigerate them with waxed paper in between, then fill and top them …

Baklava Tartlets

Want a quick treat that’s delicious and easy to do? These tartlets will do the trick. You can serve them right away, but they’re better after chilling for about an hour in the refrigerator. —Ashley Eagon, Kettering, Ohio

Italian Rainbow Cookies

My family has made these classic Italian cookies for generations, and this homemade version is so much better than the bakery version. They are always a special treat during the holidays or any time of year!—Cindy Casazza, Hopewell, New Jersey

Speedy Brownies

Since you “dump” all the ingredients together for these brownies, they take very little time to prepare. There’s no mistaking the homemade goodness of a freshly baked batch—they are rich and fudgy! —Diane Heier, Harwood, North Dakota

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo wing sauce, cream cheese and ranch or blue cheese dressing make a great party dip. Everywhere I take it, people want this chicken wing dip recipe. —Peggy Foster, Florence, Kentucky

Classic French Onion Soup

Enjoy my signature soup the way my granddaughter Becky does. I make it for her in a French onion soup bowl complete with garlic croutons and gobs of melted Swiss cheese on top. —Lou Sansevero, Ferron, Utah

Aussie Sausage Rolls

I was born and raised in Australia, but moved to the U.S. when I married my husband. When I long for a taste of home, I bake up a batch of these sausage rolls and share them with neighbors or co-workers. —Melissa Landon, Port Charlotte, Florida

Skillet Nachos

My mom gave me a fundraiser cookbook, and the recipe I’ve used most is for skillet nachos. My whole family’s on board. For toppings, think sour cream, tomatoes, jalapeno and red onion. —Judy Hughes, Waverly, Kansas

7UP Pound Cake

My grandmother gave me my first cake recipe—a pound cake using 7UP—that her grandmother gave it to her. On top of being delicious, this 7UP cake represents family tradition, connection and love. —Marsha Davis, Desert Hot Springs, California

Forgotten Jambalaya

During chilly months, I fix this jambalaya at least once a month. It’s so easy…just chop the vegetables, dump everything in the slow cooker and forget it! Even my sons, who are picky about spicy things, like this dish. —Cindi Coss, Coppell, Texas

Buttery Corn Bread

A friend gave me this recipe several years ago, and I think it’s the best cornbread recipe I’ve tried. I love to serve the melt-in-your mouth bread hot from the oven with butter and syrup. It gets rave reviews on holidays and at potluck dinners. —Nicole Callen, Auburn, California

Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies

I’m a chocolate lover, and this treat has satisfied my cravings many times. No one guesses the brownies are light because their chewy texture and rich chocolate taste can’t be beat. My family requests them often, and I’m happy to oblige. —Heidi Johnson Worland, Wyoming
