I love this grilled steak and mushroom dish because it's easy and oh so pretty on the plate. If you like a little spice, add fresh jalapeno pepper to the peppers. &mdash:Kathy Vanderburg, Niceville, Florida
My husband enjoys hunting, and it's my challenge to find new ways to serve venison. This recipe makes hearty kabobs perfect for grilling. The marinade reduces the "wild" taste, so guests often don't realize they're eating venison.

My sister, Kathy, and I often exchange recipes - I give her my desserts, and she gives me her entrees. This recipe is from her, and it's become a favorite of mine for serving to company. The meat and vegetables can be prepared ahead of time...when the company arrives, I just fire up the grill!
This is the perfect appetizer for most any occasion. The tasty bites are easy to assemble and brush with prepared barbecue sauce. When we have a big cookout, they're always a hit...but they make a nice little "extra" for a family dinner, too.

These classic kabobs are a hearty way to use up your garden harvest. At our house, everyone fixes their own skewers for an all-in-one dinner. I sometimes substitute venison for beef.

This swift side dish is as beautiful as it is delicious. Red and yellow peppers, zucchini, corn and mushrooms are seasoned with garden-fresh herbs. Grilled in a foil pan, it's no-fuss cooking. Maria Regakis
These foil-wrapped packets are convenient and make cleanup a snap. And with each serving wrapped individually, the ingredients can be adjusted to suit everyone's tastes.Michelle Isenhoff, Wayland, Michigan
I tried these kabobs at a friend's barbecue and asked for the recipe. Marinating them overnight really gives the flavor a chance to soak in. They make a tangy light meal served with fruited rice pilaf.

My daughter shared these hearty sandwiches with me, and I think they're a savory melt-in-your-mouth treat. The sweet-sour onions and mushrooms are perfect over the tender beef and lip-smacking garlic mayonnaise.
