This creamy version of lasagna goes over great at community get-togethers. My husband doesn't like broccoli, so I often substitute zucchini and yellow squash from our garden. I precook the squash before adding it to the mushroom mixture.

These hearty ribs feature a lip-smacking sauce that's deliciously tangy with just the right hint of sweetness. "The marinade is absolutely terrific for country-style ribs, but I've found it's great with other meats, too," says Brian Johnson of LaGrange, Georgia.
"I'm glad my sister-in-law shared the recipe for this coating mix for pork," says Margaret Welder. "It comes in handy when unexpected guests drop by, and it's wonderful on chicken, too." The Madrid, Iowa reader usually bakes the tender chops, but it's even quicker to cook them on the stovetop.
"I concocted this fun recipe when looking for something to pack for lunch," notes Jenny Wiebe, "I had leftover ham but no bread, so I go creative with corn bread mix." The Villa Hills, Kentucky reader says the tender muffins freeze well and are handy for an on-the-go breakfast or lunch.
A quick homemade gravy adds the finishing touch to these tender pork chops stuffed with rice and colorful vegetables. Serve them with corn on the cob and Key lime pie (shown above right) or complete the meal with applesauce and bakery cookies.
In Alpharetta, Georgia, subscriber Gail Earman turns to this recipe when she wants to use leftover ham. The slightly sweet combination of ham, pineapple tidbits, rice and Swiss cheese is popular at her house. "We even featured this recipe in our family cookbook," she writes.
In her West Monroe, Louisiana kitchen, Tonya Fitzgerald jazzes up store-bought Italian salad dressing with barbecue sauce and chili powder to make the easy marinade for these pork chops. They're simmered on the stove-top for just a few minutes, so they're on the table in no time.
Not only odes this easy entree taste awesome, but it's good for you, too. A little brown sugar, ground ginger and Dijon mustard help give the moist tenderloin its incredible flavor, and the tangy salsa can be made in no time.

This tenderloin was such a hit at our Easter dinner, I continued to serve it all summer for family and guests. I love recipes like this that are simple and different in taste. The basting sauce would be delicious with other grilled meats.
