When you need a toss-together pasta dish, this is just the ticket. Tart marinated artichokes enhance the tomatoes. The sauce is so flavorful, no one will miss the meat.—Mary Ann Lee, Clifton Park, New York
When I first fixed this, we were living on a ranch along a river with lots of game. Wild turkey can be dry, but not prepared this way! Of course, it's just as tasty with store-bought turkey. And the gravy it makes is out of this world.
I'm a widow with two children, five grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
Trying out new recipes is such a "passion" of mine that my husband sometimes will ask to have something for dinner that he's actually seen before!
My Creole-Stuffed Turkey originated when my sister from Texas and her family—who love Southern cooking—were here one Thanksgiving. Everyone kept coming back for another serving...and we ended up stuffed, too.
Ever since I first tried this, I've never made another stuffing. The sausage and pecans really give it a different flavor.
Our home is on 20 acres where we have hay and horses—my husband, our two children, (8 and 6) and I ride a lot.
Meet the Cook: Depending on the time of year, I serve my stew with bread or sweet corn muffins and fresh butter, and with salad or fruit. Then, since it tastes even better the next day, we have it for lunch on the rare occasions there are leftovers!

Meet the Cook: One of the reasons I like quick dinners like this is our two sons, who are 7 and 6. With boys of those ages, I am constantly on the go! Plus, I home-educate our children. With this recipe, if we really get involved in a science experiment or an art project, I can still fix a good meal for my family.

Cooking meats, I have to confess, isn't my specialty. But everyone who tastes this main-course dish wants more!
I'm a mostly at-home mom. I like to sew and read. I also enjoy gardening—we grow a good-sized patch, and it's so nice to have fresh-picked tomatoes and spinach when I make salads.
Neighbors happened to drop in the first time I made these...they loved them!
I say my hobby's crafting. Actually, though, it's helping my husband with ranch work and running after the kids. We have four of them, from 13 to 9.
When I had to make a dinner with Mennonite theme, I came up with this meaty main dish. Most often, I serve it with salad, soup and bread. The apple juice gives the pork a wonderful flavor, and the cabbage taste isn't too strong.
My husband and I have two grown children. We raise corn and soybeans and feed out cattle here, plus we also grow specialty-cut fresh flowers.
