"There's no need to brown the steak first, so you can get this main course into the oven in short order," relates Sue Call from Beech Grove, Indiana. The fork-tender results are sure to remind you of Swiss steak Grandma used to make, with lots of sauce left over for dipping.
"Since we can hardly wait for asparagus to appear in the spring, this recipe is a real family favorite," confides Lois Crissman of Mansfield, Ohio. "If you get too impatient waiting for garden-fresh spears, you can substitute canned or frozen instead, which will also lessen the cooking time."
I HAVE a large collection of recipes with a Southwest flavor. Served with either pasta or rice, this is one of my husband's favorites.
The moist, flavorful chicken suits any occasion, plus it can be prepared for any number of guests.

"I've used this fish recipe since I was about 15 years old," reports Linda Gaido of New Brighton, Pennsylvania. "The zippy seasoning tastes great on almost any fish, but I prefer sole. Served with a salad and fresh hot wheat rolls, it is an excellent light meal."
"I adapted this recipe from a cookbook to eliminate time-consuming steps like browning the sausage and soaking and boiling beans," explains Brenda Heidoff Leonard of Missoula, Montana. "Red pepper flakes add zest to this satisfying dish that's chock-full of beans and flavorful sausage."
Tender and full of flavor, this lovely roast is an impressive main dish for a Christmas dinner or any special occasion. The aroma as the roast is baking, enhanced by rosemary and garlic, is mouthwatering. While it is in the oven I decorate my dining room table.—
