I grew up eating stuffed peppers and thought my husband would immediately love them as well. He didn't at first, but then I created this slow-cooked recipe. He loves fajitas and tacos, so I created these peppers with all of his favorite flavors tucked inside.—Nicole Sullivan, Arvada, Colorado
I’ve been cooking 50 years and this dish is still one that guests ask for frequently. My No. 1 standby recipe also makes amazing hero sandwiches, and the sauce works for any pasta. —Jane McMillan, Dania Beach, Florida
For me, football, cool weather and chili just seem to go together. Whether I’m cheering on the local team on a Friday night or enjoying a Saturday afternoon of Oklahoma Sooner football with some friends, I enjoy serving this chili on game day. —Chris Neal, Quapaw, Oklahoma
Shepherd's pie is to the British as meat loaf is to Americans, so when I was a young child living in the U.K., I had it almost once a week. This is my go-to recipe when I'm longing for the sights and smells of my mother's kitchen. —Mari Sitkiewicz, Downers Grove, Illinois
My sister-in-law gave me the recipe for these hearty beans that make an appearance at all of our family functions. The ingredients slowly cook to perfection for a mouthwatering sweet-and-smoky flavor. Everyone will be going back for seconds!
Just like Mom’s? Well, sort of! Mary simplifies her mother’s recipe by using the slow cooker. We loved the addition of spaghetti sauce with the tomato soup and the fact that you don’t have to precook the cabbage in this fuss-free remake. —Mary Walker, Clermont, Florida
Here’s my best version of my favorite food—lasagna! The recipe is a winner, so it’s worth the extra prep. You’ll have plenty of time to plan side dishes while the main dish is cooking..—Suzanne Smith, Bluffton, Indiana
