Cilantro, lime and hot pepper sauce lend south-of-the-border pizzazz to boneless pork chops in this recipe from Paula Marchesi of Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania. "Pretty enough for company, these chops are tender, juicy and delicious," she says.

"When my son and his wife were married in our backyard, I served this special roast at the rehearsal dinner," writes B.J. Wall from Lanexa, Virginia. "It can be prepared on the grill or in the oven, but grilling enhances the flavors. The fruit salsa perfectly complements the pork's tasty herbal rub."
Warm days are the perfect time to get out the grill. And this tender grilled steak and marinade of teriyaki, ginger and orange from Sandi Poznanski of St. Howard Beach, New York makes a refreshing main course.
Whenever I make this dish for friends and family, I'm reminded of the wonderful scent of the Maine orchards where we picked our own apples every fall until we moved to Missouri last year. The aroma of the pork and apples certainly takes the chill out of crisp autumn air.
