Pork tenderloin gets delightful Italian flavor from prosciutto, tomatoes and garden herbs. The beautifully browned slices are quick enough for weeknights yet will impress your guest. —Lorraine Caland, Thunder Bay, Ontario
I've made these meatballs for years to use in this sandwich or to toss into spaghetti sauce. The big sub is a great conversation piece and tasty treat at football parties. - Colleen Edelsward, Woodinville, Washington
“I once made these rosemary-seasoned sausage patties for Christmas breakfast, and they’re now a favorite throughout the year. The pork mixture can be combined a day ahead and chilled until it’s time to bake.” —Deborah Harris, Colorado Springs, Colorado
Pepperoni and mozzarella cheese punch up this easy skillet recipe with the pizza taste that kids—and guests of all ages—are sure to love. Vance Werner, Jr. of Franklin, Wisconsin likes to dress this speedy supper up by using Portobello mushrooms and serving with fresh broccoli or green beans.
Back when I was a girl, I couldn't wait until I was grown up and could start cooking for my own family! Now that I am, I really enjoy using pork. The tender meat and the rich mustard sauce in this recipe are delectable together.

Whenever I make this dish for friends and family, I'm reminded of the wonderful scent of the Maine orchards where we picked our own apples every fall until we moved to Missouri last year. The aroma of the pork and apples certainly takes the chill out of crisp autumn air.

Meet the Cook: Especially to guests who enjoy the variety of Chinese cooking, this is a treat. I like serving it with fried noodles or rice as a side dish. I am a widow with two daughters, both grown, and a grandson. Music is a favorite pastime. I've been the founder and director of a seniors band called "The Happy Has Beens", and I perform for clubs, church groups and seniors as the "Hat Lady", singing about my travels through our state.

My mother created delicious dishes based on whatever was in the refrigerator or on the shelf. This recipe is one she tried and kept, and it became our traditional Sunday dinner. She increased the ingredients proportionately to the number of people she invited after church...usually all the aunts, uncles and cousins.
