Santa Fe Stew

Santa Fe Stew

Santa Fe Stew

Meet the Cook: This recipe came with me from New Mexico, where I lived years ago. It's been a hit at everything from a simple family supper to a church fellowship! Our three daughters are 19, 17 and 6. My husband's a truck driver, and we live in town. But we also have an 80-acre farm, filled with pine trees, that belonged to my great-granddad - one day, we hope to build a house there. -Patti Henson, Linden, Texas

Italian Beef Roll ups

Italian Beef Roll ups

Meet the Cook: When I serve Italian Beef Roll-Ups, my family and friends tell me that I should open a restaurant. And this dish tastes even more delicious rewarmed! I do a lot of cooking, especially now that we're retired. As a special treat, I like to bring dinner to our daughters (we have three) and their husbands. -Lucia Johnson, Massena, New York

Caraway Beef Roast

Caraway Beef Roast

Meet the Cook: It seems there aren't many beef roasts that are both extra-special and extra-easy. This one is, though. There have been many Sundays when I've put it in the oven as we're walking out the door to go to church and had no trouble getting it on the table right around noon. Over the years, many men have requested that I copy the recipe for their wives. "I love the gravy!" they'll say. My husband's a farmer, and we have five children - all of them now grown. -Beverly Swanson, Red Oak, Iowa

Pizza Joes

Pizza Joes

These Italian-style sloppy joes are just great. They can be prepared and held until everyone's settled and all set to eat.

Marinated Italian Chicken

Marinated Italian Chicken

With the chicken's pleasing tangy taste, no one will know you used only one convenient marinade ingredient. This is on our menu once a week.

Mini Cheese Meat Loaves

Meatloaf takes so long to make in the oven so I created a stove-top recipe which is just as good.—Betty B. Claycomb, Alverton, Pennsylvania

Meaty Spanish Rice

Meaty Spanish Rice

Meaty Spanish Rice

Meet the Cook: My "policy" in the kitchen is to try to fix something totally new at least once a week. This recipe came out beautifully on the first try! Ever since, in between experiments, I've made it often. I usually fix Meaty Spanish Rice for family meals - but it's also great for doubling if unexpected company comes and the cupboards are all nearly bare! My husband and I own a small engine repair service. Someday soon, we plan to retire to the farm 70 miles west of here that we also operate. We have three grown children and five grandchildren - and I spend as much time with those little ones as I can! -Margaret Shauers, Great Bend, Kansas

Skillet Pizza

Skillet Pizza

Skillet Pizza

Meet the Cook: I created this recipe during a hot spell one summer. With the temperature in the 90's every day, I didn't want to turn on the oven. So I decided to make our favorite family pizza in a skillet instead! Anyone who likes pizza, has kids or just wants a quick and simple meal would likely enjoy Skillet Pizza. It's great to take along to get-togethers, too - you can prepare it at home, then just plug in the skillet when you arrive. My husband, our two children and I moved here from Seattle, Washington. The area we lived in had long been countryside, but it was rapidly being converted into housing developments. Now, we live in the country on a few acres, where we hope to plant a small orchard. -Darlene Markel, Roseburg, Oregon

Spicy Beef with Peppers

Spicy Beef with Peppers

Spicy Beef with Peppers

Meet the Cook: I've enjoyed cooking and baking since I was just a girl - and my husband and I now have eight grandchildren! But this recipe is actually his. He's a meat cutter, and we'll have this dish as often as once a week (it's as good, if not better, reheated). We've made this for family dinners, picnics, potlucks...it's so popular I make sure I have a copy of the recipe to pass out. -Patricia Ann Fredell, Orion, Illinois

Wok Your Pork

Wok Your Pork

Wok Your Pork

Stir-frying is such an easy way to cook and it is so delicious too. The ginger in this meal compliments the pork well and the sweetness makes it disappear fast.—Marilyn Platner, Marion, Iowa

Mexican Carnitas

Mexican Carnitas

Mexican Carnitas

Ever hear of "carnitas"? They're easy-to-make pork crisps that are very popular in Mexico. The secret to this recipe is the citrus and quick frying. Be sure the meat is well drained before it's place in oil, though, or it will splatter and pop. My husband works at a timber mill. Logging is an important industry here in the mountainous northeast part of our state, and there are also numerous wheat and grass seed farms. In addition to cooking and canning, I enjoy fishing, gardening and crafting. —Patricia Collins, Imbler, Oregon
