My wife, Julie, sometimes jokes she married for better, for worse and for my cooking! I spent a lot of time in the kitchen while I was growing up and still enjoy doing so today.—Paul Miller, Green Bay, Wisconsin
A special marinade gives the meat in these fajitas outstanding flavor that's always a hit with my family. It's a fun and satisfying summer main dish using garden-fresh peppers and onions.

Meet the Cook: My family likes its food spicy. I found the original recipe for these burgers in a cookbook, then added and subtracted ingredients until they suited our taste. Cajun Burgers are always on the menu whenever we have company over for a backyard cookout.
Like my husband, I was raised in the country. We have four children (20, 16, 13 and 9) and now a grandson, too!

I once knew a nun who cooked the best marinated steaks. I found this recipe in my quest to fix steaks as good as hers. This delicious versatile meat makes a special holiday main dish or a super camping supper.

It's been such a long time since I added this recipe to my file that I don't even remember where it came from!
Cooking's something I thoroughly enjoy—and, when I'm finished, my husband always wonders which truck ran through our kitchen! Somehow, I manage to cover every bit of counter space.
We have two children, 8 and 6. In addition to cooking. I'm an avid sewer.
I've been serving this recipe to family and friends for 20 years and very seldom do I have any leftovers. We try to keep the house cool, so we grill out often. I get most of the herbs in this recipe from my son's garden.
