Meet the Cook: I created this recipe during a hot spell one summer. With the temperature in the 90's every day, I didn't want to turn on the oven. So I decided to make our favorite family pizza in a skillet instead!
Anyone who likes pizza, has kids or just wants a quick and simple meal would likely enjoy Skillet Pizza. It's great to take along to get-togethers, too - you can prepare it at home, then just plug in the skillet when you arrive.
My husband, our two children and I moved here from Seattle, Washington. The area we lived in had long been countryside, but it was rapidly being converted into housing developments. Now, we live in the country on a few acres, where we hope to plant a small orchard.

With all the cattle ranchers in our state, these sandwiches are a great way to use ground beef. I've done a lot of traveling and tried a lot of recipes, but I think this is one of the best I've ever tasted. It makes a hearty meal.
This traditional lasagna is a real crowd-pleaser. With ground beef, Italian sausage, a from-scratch tomato sauce and a rich cheese sauce, it's hearty and delicious. I get lots of compliments when I put together and share this wonderful dish.—Donna Patterson, Davenport, Iowa
My mother gave me this recipe some time ago. It's a winner in our family - kids especially seem to like the spaghetti. It's a different way to serve pot roast...and sure makes the house smell good when it's simmering! Everyone I've shared the recipe with has said how much they're enjoyed it.
My family was rather skeptical the first time I served this, but I knew it was a hit when they quickly asked for seconds! I especially like serving this to company, since I can visit with my guests while it bakes.
An exchange student who stayed with us made this rice casserole for us. It's good served with crusty rolls. Now I like to make this, especially when we're having company over who knew our "other daughter".
