The ultimate bite-size treats, chicken nuggets get the star treatment when you make them at home. I usually serve these herb-breaded baked bites with a sweet-and-sour sauce for dipping. —Karen Owen, Rising Sun, Indiana
My family enjoys food with flair like this unique Asian soup. Whenever I serve it, it's such a hit that no one has much room for the main course. The children get a real kick out of watching the rice sizzle when it gets added to the soup.—Mary Woodke, Gardiner, New York
For a nice alternative to beef and bean burritos, I use this recipe, which I discovered several years back. If I fix the chicken mixture the night before, the next day's dinner is a snap. My 14-year-old gives these yummy burritos an enthusiastic "thumbs up"!

Meet the Cook: This is a great Sunday meal or "company dish" - as long as you're prepared with second helpings! My husband and I have two sons...3 and almost 1. We live in the country. He is a large-animal veterinarian; I give music lessons.

The first time you make this recipe, you'll understand how it got its name. Just about as fast as you can open a couple of cans and brown a crust, it's done. It's great year-round, but it's especially suited to the winter months because it comes out of the oven hearty and steaming hot.
When my husband and I were married, I didn't know how to boil water. Now, many years later, there are 890 cookbooks and counting in my collection—and we are parents of five grown children and grandparents of eight!
