Like many other cooking enthusiasts, I've discovered that good food pleases the palate and soothes the soul! This rice has a nice nutty flavor and the wonderful aroma of sage.—David Collin, Martinez, California
MU HUSBAND is a typical "meat and potatoes" man. Tired of the usual mashed or baked potato treatment, I began to experiment in the kitchen, and this recipe is the result.
Potatoes prepared this way go well with an omelet for breakfast or a steak for dinner.

We were always glad to see a big bowl of this festive rice on the table. The carrots, peas and tomatoes make it so pretty. This versatile side dish goes great with any meat or Mexican meal.

I created this recipe—and haven't had any complaints yet! The peppers can be served alone as a meal or alongside pork chops, steak, hamburgers, etc. I love to cook...outside the kitchen. I enjoy crafts and writing.—Suzanne Hubbard, Greeley, Colorado
Our young sons like to help me assemble potatoes, carrots and onions into foil packages that we can grill alongside the turkey. Just before serving, we top the steaming medley of vegetables with a sprinkling of cheese.

My husband and I look forward to this easy, fresh-tasting side dish in summer when tomatoes are at their best. I love to invite friends over for dinner and serve these colorful tomatoes. —Mrs. Patrick Dore, Burlington, Ontario
WE'VE always taken advantage of the fresh produce we're fortunate to have almost year-round.
I prepare carrots often, since they're so nutritious and versatile. This dish is one of my favorites. It can be prepared a few days ahead of time, so it's easy when you're planning to serve it for a special meal.
