I was born in Montreal and lived in New England and the Southwest, so I’ve merged these influences into recipes like this shepherd’s pie with turkey, corn and green chilies. —Lynn Price, Millville, Massachusetts
In the past few years, I’ve been trying to incorporate more whole grains in our dinners. Bulgur is one of my favorite grains to work with because of its quick cooking time. Besides being high in fiber and rich in minerals, it has a mild, nutty flavor that my kids enjoy. —Maria Vasseur, Valencia, California
If you're tired of the same old taco routine, give these a try. I tweaked a friend's recipe to suit our tastes and my family's loved it since. It's so tasty and low maintenance. —Ally Billhorn, Wilton, Iowa
One night I had frozen cheese tortellini on hand and didn’t have a clue about what I was going to make. I scanned my cupboards and refrigerator and soon I was happily cooking away. So fresh-tasting and simple, this is a combination I turn to again and again! —Leo Parr, New Orleans, LA
"This recipe was given to me 25 years ago and remains a family favorite. It's a simple dish with a great twist on traditional spaghetti. By cooking everything in one pot it saves time on prep and clean up."
– Susan Spence, Lawrenceville, Virginia
Although I don't consider myself much of a cook, this recipe is delicious. It's moist, tender, and the sauce has a nice zip to it. The mushrooms and ground turkey are a nice combination.—Tyler Sherman, Williamsburg, Virginia
"My family never tires of this versatile entree. We can have it once a week, and it’s different each time! I sometimes omit the turkey for a meatless meal, change up the veggies or use my own tomato sauce.” Mary Lou Moeller - Wooster, Ohio
