Slow Cooker Chicken & Sweet Potato Chili

I'm a college student and one of the things I miss the most about school is my mom's wonderful cooking. I also miss her well-stocked kitchen! This slow cooker recipe is something I can make in my dorm on a busy Sunday. I just throw it all in the slow cooker before I leave for church and come back to piping hot homemade comfort food. The first bite of this chili almost always brings me to tears; it's so good to have a little piece of home while away. Be sure to serve with a good sprinkle of chedd

Fish & Chips with Dipping Sauce

My husband and I really like fish and chips, but not all the grease that typically comes along with it. I decided to give the classic dinner a makeover. Turns out the pickle dip is healthier than tartar sauce, and we like it a lot better—who knew? —Michelle Lucas, Cold Spring, Kentucky

Mashed Potato Spinach Bake

I LIKE this potato recipe because it’s a make-ahead dish and when the company rings the bell, it can be placed in the oven. Of Swedish origin, it was first served to my husband and me when we visited our daughter in Michigan and this was part of her Easter meal. She had received it from a friend.

Best Rosy Rhubarb Salad

During the holidays, I'll at times serve this unusual salad in place of cranberry sauce. It goes well with pork or poultry . Honestly, though, it's good with any everyday meal, too. It's just a little tart, so it rounds out rich food. I've been cooking ever since I made corn bread to surprise my family when I was 9. My brothers wouldn't eat it—but my parents did! My husband and I are dairy farmers in partnership with our grown son.

Old-World Sauerbraten

Meet the Cook: The secret to this sauerbraten is that it doesn't require marinating. I've been making it for 20 years now. It's an excellent family dinner, and you can also serve it to company along with potato pancakes, red cabbage and applesauce. My husband and I have three grown sons and a grandson. Cooking's my favorite hobby, but I'm an avid flea-market and antique shopper, too. -Phyllis Berenson, Cincinnati, Ohio

Our Test Kitchen stuffed these yummy Vegetarian Tacos with a blend of sauteed cabbage, peppers and black beans so flavorful and filling you won’t even miss the meat!

(And if they’re taking Spanish in school, you might even let the them print out a Spanish label for each garnish.)
