As a salesperson in the medical field, I'm often in hospitals during the lunch hour. One day, I was fortunate to sample this great dish. The chef wouldn't share the recipe, so I came up with my own tasty version.—Bibi Gromling, Flagler Beach, Florida
My mom's tender roasted chicken with potatoes and sage dressing is even more delicious than its aroma while baking. My children enjoy this meal as much as I did when I was young. —Sandra Melnychenko, Grandview, Manitoba
My mother gave me this recipe some time ago. It's a winner in our family - kids especially seem to like the spaghetti. It's a different way to serve pot roast...and sure makes the house smell good when it's simmering! Everyone I've shared the recipe with has said how much they're enjoyed it.
This skillet dish is so easy to make on those busy days, and it's delicious, too! I got the recipe at a covered-dish luncheon at my church. I liked it so much, I asked for the recipe, and I like to share it with others.
Folks are surprised that it's so easy to make - but don't tell anyone!
"MANICOTTI was served as a first course for Easter dinner, and it's so good that we had to remember to save our appetites for the rest of the meal. Instead of using pasta, Mother made crepes, which we helped her fill with smooth ricotta cheese. It was a special holiday treat."
"THE WHOLE FAMILY helped prepared this sauerbraten. We children had fun mixing the spices and pounding them on the hearth, then Dad mixed them with salt and rubbed them into the meat. The tantalizing aromas escalated as the sauerbraten cooked.
Although this recipe is perfect for the holiday season, plan to use it all year-round—cranberries add "zing" to menus anytime. And, if you're looking for an appetizer idea, shape the meatballs smaller and serve with party picks.
