Every year my father and I plant a garden together. After an especially great growing season, we had plenty of produce to eat! We like to use fresh herbs from our garden but dry is just as tasty in this dish. —Bernadette Bennett, Waco, Texas
"My mother-in-law originally made this recipe with chicken," says Marjorie Miller of Haven, Kansas. "When I substituted pork and made several other revisions, my family reveled in the results! It's simple to prepare yet delicious."
Wondering what to do with all her garden zucchini, Jennifer Magrey of Sterling, Connecticut came up with this versatile and colorful salsa: “I also serve it on crackers, burgers, chips, baked potatoes or over cream cheese as a spread!”
Diane Hixon of Niceville, Florida uses garlic and Italian seasoning to dress up green beans straight from the garden. "This fast flavorful side dish is frequently on the menu for special occasions," she relates.
Jennifer Rytting of West Jordan, Utah recalls: “My father-in-law was looking for a good chicken marinade when a friend suggested mayonnaise with Italian dressing. He added the ham and cheese on his own, and we can't get enough of it! You'd never guess this BBQ is so easy and so fast!”
A mixture of spinach, spices and three kinds of cheese tucked into these chicken breasts makes them taste extra special. "They bake to a beautiful golden brown, so they look lovely on the plate, too," shares Barbara Eitemiller of Churchville, Maryland.
For years I prepared my Thanksgiving turkey only to have it turn out dry. That's when I decided to give this recipe a try. Baking the bird in an oven bag keeps it moist and tender...and there's no basting involved.—Shirley Bedzis, San Diego, California
