“I had purchased some vegetarian chicken patties…but had no idea how to serve them. This recipe, an impromptu creation on a busy weeknight, turned out so well…my husband never knew it wasn't 'real' chicken! Good for vegetarian friends.”
Heidi Heimgartner - Blooming Prairie, Minnesota
"Whether I'm fixing cod fillets or my husband's catch of the day, this batter makes the fish fry up golden and crispy," says Nancy Johnson, field editor from Connersville, Indiana. "Club soda gives it a different twist...and the sweet and zippy sauce complements the fish nicely."
One summer I worked at a health food store that sold sandwiches. We were close to a college campus, so I made lots of these fresh filled pitas for the students. Crunchy with crisp vegetables and nutty sunflower kernels, they're a fast-to-fix lunch when you're on the go.

When we have friends over during the summer, I usually serve this grilled chicken. It's tender, moist and bursting with the tangy taste of lime. I'm often asked for the recipe.—Kay Alliman, Biggsville, Illinois
