Meet the Cook: This is a special meal in our house - as soon as I get ribs, I know which dish my family will ask me to make.
My husband and I have three children, ages 8, 6 and 3. So I've automatically learned to be a versatile cook!

Mother used to fix this wonderful, easy dish when we had company. She was from a family of fantastic Cajun cooks, so our food was always well-seasoned. In Louisiana, rice is part of many meals. The cheese sauce sets these stuffed peppers apart from any others I've tried. —Lisa Easley, Longview, Texas
For a real straight-from-the-chuckwagon beef meal, you can't rope a better recipe than this! This is the recipe I rely on when feeding a hungry group. The wonderfully tangy sauce is lip-smacking good.—Mildred Sherrer, Fort Worth, Texas
WHEN I was married 45 years ago, my mother gave me this recipe. I always prepared this dish when we had company because it never failed and was so good!
Through the years, it became one of my family's favorite meals, and now I still often fix it for just the two of us. Whenever I do, my husband and I get to enjoy the bonus of leftovers!

My father is Cajun, and I grew up eating Cajun food. This easy recipe makes me think of happy childhood memories. Sometimes I use oysters or crawfish in addition to--or instead of--the shrimp. —Stacey Johnson, Bonney Lake, Washington
I like to have a package of rice papers and noodles on hand for quick and easy appetizer ideas. I've used thin or thick rice noodles for these rolls with equal success. —Lori Stefanishion, Drumheller, Alberta
For years, I had trouble finding a pizza my family likes. So I started making my own. The evening I served it to company and they asked for my recipe. I thought, "I finally got it right!"
When I prepare my sauce, I usually fix enough for three to four pizzas and freeze it. Feel free to spice up my sauce to suit your own family's tastes. —Cheryl Kravik, Spanaway, Washington
This recipe is special to me because it was handed down from my grandma. A tangy sauce, flavored with horseradish and Dijon mustard, sparks a hearty assortment of meats and cheeses. It feeds a crowd, so it's perfect for a party or a potluck. My husband says it's the best sub sandwich he's ever had.
