In the past few years, I’ve been trying to incorporate more whole grains in our dinners. Bulgur is one of my favorite grains to work with because of its quick cooking time. Besides being high in fiber and rich in minerals, it has a mild, nutty flavor that my kids enjoy. —Maria Vasseur, Valencia, California
I turn to this recipe frequently because I can prepare it a day ahead—it's so convenient when company's coming. And with only a trace of fat, the fruity side dish is nutritious and delicious.—Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey
"I enjoy fixing a sit-down meal for my husband and myself every evening, so this entree is often on the menu," writes Anita Keppinger from Philomath, Oregon. "It's fairly inexpensive and takes little effort to prepare. The tender beef tastes wonderful."
Chili sauce, with plenty of garlic and basil, flavors these moist chicken thighs. We enjoy this tender grilled chicken not just in summertime, but throughout the year. —Marilyn Waltz, Idyllwild, California
While this cranberry sauce is simmering, the wonderful fragrance of the spices brings back happy memories of when my mother made it for the holidays. My husband and three sons are glad I’m carrying on her tradition!
THIS RECIPE came from a 1950s television program called Kay's Kitchen. I gave it a try, and my family gave it rave reviews.
It makes a colorful entree served with fresh green beans...or try French fries - the sauce is great for dipping!
