My trick to roasting veggies is to choose ones that cook in the same amount of time. Try pairing up cauliflower florets with baby carrots or okra with cherry tomatoes.— Courtney Gaylord, Columbus, Indiana
I enjoy preparing this dish since it is one of the easiest, hearty meals I serve...so tasty, too. The chicken gumbo soup adds a unique flavor to the rest of the ingredients.

For a fun change-of-pace breakfast, Kathy Brodin of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin suggests these sausage and hash brown frittatas perked up with salsa. "To lower the cholesterol even more, use egg substitute for the whole eggs," she notes.
These wonderful oven-roasted potatoes are very pretty to serve—the partially cut slices spread out in the shape of a fan. Folks at a potluck can easily take as many slices as they want. I especially like these potatoes with ham, roast pork or beef.
After our two children became adults and left home, I continued to cook meals as usual. Soon we became tired of having to eat the same leftovers several days in a row, so I sat down and came up with this pared-down recipe, which quickly became one of our favorites.

Everyone raves about these extra-special spuds that are perfect for meat-and-potato lovers. The creamy, nicely seasoned potatoes are a great accompaniment to grilled chicken, but hearty enough to serve as a comforting meal on their own.
I make this roast every Christmas, much to the delight of family and friends. The recipe was passed down from my mother, so I've been using it for years. The succulent stuffing is oh-so-tasty!

When I retired from the U.S. Army s few years ago, I began tinkering in the kitchen and now work in there regularly. This casserole is chock-full of vegetables and flavor and couldn't be easier to prepare.
