This speedy and hearty dish is quite tasty. You get the rich flavor by allowing the turkey and spices to blend overnight. Don't skip this step!—Shirley Goodson, West Allis, Wisconsin

Festive Ham Glaze

As long as I can remember, my favorite room's been the kitchen. My glaze dates back to shortly after my husband (of 23 years now) and I were married. My parents were visiting, I cooked a Sunday ham with this glaze—and I've done it that same way from then on. Since my husband made his career in the Air Force, we spent years in the city or living in close quarters. When he retired, we decided to plant roots here where we could experience the daily wonder of God's creation. (The rise and set of the sun, silhouetting the mountains in the distance, is breathtaking.) Our children are 17 and 11.

Since there's a lot of pork produced in the Midwest, I think this recipe represents our area well. My family likes to grill pork chops, and this is the recipe that they request most often. We love the sweet/sour tang of the marinade.

My husband loves chicken, so when we bought our first charcoal grill, we needed a recipe for barbecued chicken. We ended up combining two recipes to come up with this one. We've used it the past 3 or 4 years now and haven't come across any recipe that's better.

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!

I don't know where this casserole originated, but the recipe was given to me some 40 years ago. It's my family's all-time favorite. Not only is it a great "company" meal, it's also well-received at potluck dinners.

These pork chops are perfect for company because they marinate overnight in a special barbecue sauce. Then just pop them on the grill when you're ready to eat. They're fast and flavorful. —DeAnn Alleva, Columbus, Ohio

Summertime Chicken Tacos

Try these tempting tacos when you're looking for a change of pace from regular tacos. A mild zing from the lime juice in the marinade for the chicken comes through after grilling. I like to serve them with salsa, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. -Susan Scott, Asheville, North Carolina
