    Avocado Toast

    Chip actually hates this trendy toast! He even put a poll on the restaurant’s sign that said “Avocado toast? Honk once for yes, twice for no.” It’s on the Magnolia Table menu, so Joanna must’ve won out.

    Southern Pimiento Cheese Spread

    A classic southern comfort food, this spread is used as an appetizer with crackers, corn chips or celery. It is also smeared between two slices of white bread for sandwiches and as a topping for hamburgers and hot dogs. —Eileen Balmer, South Bend, Indiana.

    My sister and I spent a week each summer with our Aunt Frances, who always had this thirst-quenching lemonade in a stoneware crock in her refrigerator. It makes a refreshing drink after a hot day of running around. —Debbie Reinhart, New Cumberland, Pennsylvania

    Apple Cider Doughnuts

    Apple doughnuts remind me of family trips to South Dakota. We’d stop at Wall Drug for a dozen or so before camping in the Badlands. Maple glaze was and still is my favorite. Share a batch with friends and family who appreciate a hot, fresh apple cider doughnut. —Melissa Hansen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Fluffy Scrambled Eggs

    When our son, Chris, wants something other than cold cereal in the morning, he whips up these eggs. Cheese and evaporated milk make them especially good. They're easy to make when you're camping, too. —Chris Pfleghaar, Elk River, Minnesota

    Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

    Lemon is Jo’s favorite flavor. Since she loves to bake, she incorporates the citrusy fruit in a lot of her goodies from Silos Baking Co., like lemon poppy seed bread that’s served as part of a fresh bread basket. You can easily follow in her footsteps!
