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 created this quick recipe after enjoying a seafood dish with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top at a restaurant. The cheese added extra zip and gave me the idea to try the fish at home.—Lynn Mathieu, Great Mills, Maryland
Here in Minnesota, summers never seem to last long enough! So we take advantage of warm weather and heat to the outdoors for good old-fashioned cookouts. This grilled ham steak is quick and easy for weekday dinners, yet impressive enough for special-occasion meals.
With tasty tender slices of beef and fresh colorful vegetables, this mouthwatering stir-fry was designated "a keeper" by my husband the first time I made it. He loves the beef and asparagus, and I appreciate how quick it is to make.—JoLynn Hill, Roosevelt, Utah
When you're cooking for a crowd that really savors meat, this peppery, tempting tenderloin is perfect! It's important to let it rest for a few minutes before carving to allow the juices to work through the meat.
