Because my recipe calls for baking the eggplant instead of frying it, it’s much healthier! The prep time is a little longer than for some recipes, but the Italian flavors and rustic elegance are well worth it. —Laci Hooten, McKinney, Texas
I love this delicious recipe because it includes three of my favorite locally produced foods—ham, asparagus and cheese. Prepared with leftover Easter ham and fresh asparagus, these rolls make an excellent springtime meal.
Perfect for a busy day, this saucy main dish can be prepared a day ahead and baked before serving. My brothers don't want me to make anything else when they come to dinner! Leftovers are great for sandwiches or sliced with potato salad. —Marjorie Scott, Sardis, British Columbia

This main dish from Bea Taus of Fremont, California has a wonderful fresh garden taste. The herbs add flavor—no need for salt. "I like to serve these peppers with green salad, French bread and fresh fruit," says Bea.
To serve a reduced-calorie dish that is ready in about 15 minutes. I came up with this fast simple recipe. I think the lime juice adds a different fresh flavor to the mild taste of the fish.

This recipe was originally for lamb, but I adapted it to pork and adjusted the spices. After tasting these flavorful kabobs, my husband became an instant fan of this recipe. It's always requested when the grill comes out for the season.
