Some of my favorites for a luncheon: A mix of southern classics—lettuce and sweet peas in Green Goddess dressing, deviled eggs, and chicken salad on biscuits. And for dessert, my grandmother Dorothea Draper’s Coconut Layer Cake. | Reese Witherspoon | Draper Jaems
Taco Salad: "I found this recipe in an old school cookbook," writes Sandy Fynaardt from New Sharon, Iowa. "It's always a favorite at potlucks." Sandy says she prepares the rest of the ingredients while the ground beef is browning, so dinner is ready in minutes and costs just 83¢ per serving.
