Smoked Salmon Quiche

My son fishes for salmon on the Kenai River in Alaska and smokes much of what he catches. My mother passed this recipe on to me to help me find new ways to cook with salmon. Regular salmon also works in this quiche, but the smoked flavor can't be beat! —Rose Marie Cherven, Anchorage, Alaska

Kodiak Casserole

Because it packs a little kick and has an interesting and tasty mix of ingredients, this is the perfect potluck dish for fall—or any time. One of my husband's favorites, it's an Alaskan recipe I found in the early 1950's. —Kathy Crow, Cordova, Alaska

Herbed Garlic Potatoes

My mom cooks from scratch and rarely uses a recipe. That's how I learned—a pinch of this, a dash of that. But it was actually my dad who invented the basis for this recipe. The potatoes fit any kind of meal from fancy to burgers—and everyone asks me for the recipe. —Sherry DesJardin, Fairbanks, Alaska
