Before you hand out the drinks, save a little soda to make these burgers. Cola helps soften the texture and kick up the flavor. Used in the meat mixture and brushed on during cooking, it takes this football favorite to another level. —Emily Nelson, Packers Women's Association, Green Bay, Wisconsin
These mouthwatering steaks, marinated and grilled to perfection, are melt-in-your-mouth delicious and sure to become a summer favorite. Don't let the season go by without trying this recipe. —Anna Davs, Springfield, Missouri
"No one would guess this elegant entree is a snap to prepare at the last minute," remarks Janis Plourde from Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario. "To save even more prep time, use frozen mixed veggies instead of fresh. Sometimes I substitute chicken, chicken bouillon and curry for the beef, beef bouillon and ginger."
From Spearville, Kansas, Pat Habiger shares her pretty stuffed peppers. "When green, red or yellow bell peppers are plentiful, they create a colorful container for this spicy taco mixture that's ready in record time," she promises.
For an old-fashioned stick-to-your-ribs meal, try this economical entree that's just 89¢ a helping. "As a newlywed, I was so grateful to my mom for sharing this easy recipe," notes Sandy McKenzie of Braham, Minnesota. "My husband enjoys this no matter how often I serve it."
Our taste panel loved the flavor of these saucy patties. Said one: “They're sure to be a family favorite!” A simple recipe for rush-hour weeknights, it's great with mashed potatoes.

With this quick recipe, you get a tender steak without a long marinade. Balsamic vinegar and steak sauce give it tang, and you can't go wrong with the melty Swiss on top. —Peggy Woodward, Shullsburg, Wisconsin
There's enough flavor in these steaks to allow the side dish to be simple. So consider serving them with baked potatoes, rice pilaf or another plain vegetable and salad. The meal has always gone over big when I've fixed it for my husband and friends helping out with his latest home construction project. David and I have a daughter, 3. Her new brother or sister is due any day!
