"Yum" is what my family says when I serve this. With a squeeze of lime juice and a few sprigs of cilantro added at the end, you'll have a simple meal with complex flavors. —Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania
A colorful combination of zucchini and zippy canned tomatoes is delicious over quick-cooking angel hair pasta. We like the extra zest from crushed red pepper flakes. —Kathleen Timberlake, Dearborn Heights, Michigan
The tempting and beautiful glaze makes an impressive main dish that looks like you fussed over it. These tender chops are nice to serve during the week as well as for company on weekends.—Sheila Townsend, Overland Park, Kansas
The blend of both Thai chili and barbecue sauces gives my salmon a sweet, spicy kick that's special enough to serve guests. With just four ingredients, this entree couldn't be much simpler! —Pamela Brick, Chicago, Illinois
This is so easy to toss together on a busy weeknight, and I usually have the ingredients on hand. I start sauteing the onion and pepper first, then I prepare the instant rice. If you like, top it with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
This moist chicken takes minutes to cook using the direct grilling method. The thick zesty sauce is equally tasty over pork. If you'd like, make a double batch of sauce and reserve half of it to serve at the table.
"My mom gave me the recipe for these savory chops with a sweet and tangy marinade," relates Babette Watterson from Atglen, Pennsylvania. "The apple juice and Dijon mustard complement the pork nicely. With a vegetable and some rice or pasta, you have a meal."
Everyone who tastes these tender chops loves them. In fact, they're so good that I often cook extra and freeze them for another busy night. The savory mixture of butter, mustard and dill is wonderful on chicken or fish, too.

I made this colorful, robust stew often when our three kids were living at home. Since it calls for lots of canned vegetables, it stirs up in a jiffy. It's versatile, too-you can substitute cubed turkey, chicken, ham or beef for the sausage. Plus, you can replace the beans with other vegetables of your choice.
