"When my granddaughter was 3, she had a bear that sang a song about 'root stew'," recalls Alice McCabe of Climax, New York. "She thought he was talking about tree roots, so I took her to the store to buy root veggies, and we made this stew."
"These moist meatballs are so easy to make, yet they taste so fancy," writes Teri Lindquist of Gurnee, Illinois. The sweet and tangy sauce has surprising flavor from ginger and cloves. This entree is economical, too at 78¢ a serving.
Tarragon, ginger and cayenne pepper season the cornmeal coating that Daucia Brooks of Westmoreland, Tennessee uses on her golden "fried" chicken. The moist meat and crunchy coating are sure to make this homey entree in a mealtime mainstay at you house, too.
This chunky sauce is so good you'll think it's loaded with meat. But it actually features a whole bushel of fantastic produce. I can start this sauce early in the afternoon and have it slowly simmer on the stove until dinnertime. It's nice to rely on no-fuss recipes like this on busy days.—Barbara Njaa, Nikiski, Alaska
