Being from Louisiana, red beans are my go-to for comfort food. Putting on a nice pot of red beans for our Sunday family dinner goes back generations in my family. Dig in with some hot buttered corn bread. —Lisa Bowie, Las Vegas, Nevada
My family loves this dish—it's on our menu at least once a month. It's easy to double for large crowds...just keep it warm in a slow cooker. I usually serve the ravioli with green beans amandine and garlic bread.—Krendi Ford, Belleville, Michigan
The sausage makes this casserole meaty and hearty, and the blue cheese adds a special flavor. It's easy to prepare, plus it only needs to bake for about 30 minutes.—Julia Livingston, Frostproof, Florida
I can’t recall how I came up with this main dish, but it’s a staple in my house. With packaged coleslaw mix and noodles in a flavorful sauce, it’s always on the table in less than 30 minutes. I like to serve it with cheesy garlic toast for a hearty meal. –Mary Jo Nikolaus, Mansfield, Ohio
My mother cooked with barley a lot, so when I found this recipe for stuffed peppers, I know it would be great. I just made a few changes to suit our tastes, and now it's a weekday dinner standby.—Rosella Peters, Gull Lake, Saskatchewan
These pinwheels are good for breakfast, brunch or a midday snack. I served them at a morning wedding reception and received many compliments. My grown children also like to take them to work for a quick breakfast with coffee.
