I CAME UP with this recipe several summers ago. I had a ham in the refrigerator and was trying to avoid heating up the kitchen by preparing it in the oven. The stovetop was the solution.
Ever since, this recipe has been my standby for when I have leftover ham. Served over rice, it's delicious! —Diane Widmer

"This delicious match receives rave reviews each time I make them and I've shared the recipes with numerous fans," writes Ann Berger Osowski from Orange City, Florida. "They're very versatile; the pork can be served hot or cold and the sauce can also be used as a zesty dip for fresh veggies."
My grandmother used to make a beef tenderloin stuffed with peaches and basil when we were young, so I altered that recipe and came up with my own unique version for my husband and me. It's a household favorite! —Mary Beth Harris-Murphree, Tyler, Texas
My family loves these sandwiches and they are very easy to prepare. Fresh basil, tangy Italian dressing and melted cheese meld perfectly together in this simple sandwich. —Betty Snoddy, Franklin, Missouri
Why heat up the kitchen on warm Indian summer evenings when you can take dinner in hand with these hearty chicken pitas from Lynne Ziegler in Odenton, Maryland?
LYNNE’S TIP: I also roll up the chicken strips in flour tortillas and serve as grab-and-go wrap sandwiches. Serve any leftover chicken with mixed greens and the last of the garden tomatoes in lunch salads the next day.
"My husband, Don, and I loved this savory dish when we first sampled it at a party," notes Nancy Nielsen of Orange, Connecticut. "Of course, I had to have the recipe, which I have downsized to serve just the two of us. This hearty entree featuring tender beef is one of our favorites."
