I love to share my cooking, and this hearty meal-in-one has gotten a tasty reputation around town. People have actually approached me in public to ask for the recipe. —Laurie Sledge, Brandon, Mississippi
Cubes of chicken and chunks of smoked turkey kielbasa, plus plenty of herbs and veggies, make this a hearty stir-fry. I sometimes top off servings with shredded mozzarella cheese and minced basil and parsley.

I've had this recipe for over twenty years and love it. Since the children are grown, I now cook just half the recipe for my husband and I. And it's so easy! You'll be in and out of the kitchen in no time. —Ann Rogers, Ocala, Florida
A local restaurant made a similar breading for shrimp po' boys, but we think this version's better. I serve it with a ranch dressing and hot sauce mixture as a dip. —Jenny Wenzel, Gulfport, Mississippi Roasted Russet & Sweet Potato Wedges Recipe >
This delightfully different jambalaya is lighter than many of the traditional sausage varieties. Plus, it's a great way to use up leftover ham. I appreciate how easy it is to prepare, and I love the aroma while it's cooking.
I have lived in this close-knit community all my life and enjoy cooking Cajun dishes, especially those with seafood. Along with a green salad and garlic bread, this dish is great for family gatherings. The recipe can easily be doubled to serve a larger group, and if you’d like it less spicy, remove the seeds from the jalapeno before chopping it. —Carolyn Lejeune, Welsh, Louisiana
