“My healthy prep-ahead skewers are easy to grill at the last minute, making them handy for time-pressed days. Red pepper flakes add a nice bite. Serve with steamed rice or broccoli.” —Dawn E. Bryant, Hershey, Nebraska
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
IT'S EASY to cook chicken to serve any number of people and now that we are "two", we have chicken often.
I made up this recipe myself because I love cranberries. This dish is tangy and tart...an interesting combination of flavors.

We raise ostriches on our farm on the eastern shore of Maryland, so we have an abundance of meat on hand to use for a variety of dishes. It's a lean meat that tastes similar to beef. My mother-in-law gave me this marinade recipe, and I've used it with a number of meats.
My husband and I have lots of family living in our area, so any gathering is bound to be big. This ham satisfies everyone and is often requested. One of my brothers-in-law will eat six slices of this ham before helping himself to anything else. We never have leftovers.

We have these tempting steaks weekly. Whenever I suggest a change in the recipe, my husband reminds me, "Don't fix it if it's not broken." If neighbors happen to drop by when I'm preparing steaks, I cut the meat into cubes and grill it on skewers with onions and mushrooms as appetizers.
