I've wanted to make Beef Burgundy ever since I got one of Julia Child's cookbooks, but I wanted to find a way to fix it in a slow cooker. My version of the popular beef stew is still rich, hearty and delicious, but without the need to watch on the stovetop or in the oven.—Crystal Jo Bruns, Iliff, Colorado

Beef and Cheese Pie

This is a meal my husband really enjoys, although it's a bit big for just the two of us. The good news is that it reheats nicely in the microwave.

Bohemian Pot Roast

Bohemian Pot Roast

This isn't really an ethnic dish...we named it "Bohemian" because my husband is of Bohemian extraction—and he loves this pot roast! I love it, too, because it's so easy to prepare and serve. You can put this "meal in one dish" together to cook, then practically forget about it until dinnertime. Coleslaw is a great accompaniment.

ONE SUMMER when my husband and I were enjoying our first "getaway" in years, we found ourselves stranded in our cabin cruiser with a dead battery. When hunger set in, my husband rigged up a fishing line, and soon there were two trout sizzling on the portable grill. We eventually made it home all right...and kept the recipe we'd devised. -Felicia Cummings, Raymond, Maine

Authentic Mexican dishes like this one are flavorful and naturally low fat without sacrificing the taste. The flavors leave you always wanting that next bite. Just a preference is a squeeze of lime juice over the avocado.

Neighbors happened to drop in the first time I made these...they loved them! I say my hobby's crafting. Actually, though, it's helping my husband with ranch work and running after the kids. We have four of them, from 13 to 9.

Ham is a super choice for a holiday meal because once you put it in the oven, it practically takes care of itself until dinnertime. I serve it because everyone in my family loves it! The sugary crust makes the ham beautiful to serve. —Marge Clark, West Lebanon, Indiana
