One evening, we had unexpected company. Since I had some of these meatballs left over in the freezer, I warmed them up as appetizers. Everyone raved! This classic recipe makes a big batch and is perfect for entertaining. —Mary Lou Koskella, Prescott, Arizona

Meet the Cook: I am a self-taught cook whose family had to eat a lot of "mistakes" till I got the right taste! I changed the meat and flavoring many times in this one-dish meal, for example. Now, it's a favorite. I just served it to 24 people at a party. My husband and I have seven grown children and 10 grandchildren. -Joy Rackham, Chimacum, Washington

Meet the Cook: There were seven of us children when I was a girl, and I was the second oldest. I began cooking as soon as I could reach the stove and stir a pot. I'm a widow, so I usually make this for large gatherings. It's so quick and easy. The recipe was given to me when my husband and I were caring for foster children who enjoyed beef dishes. I've been fixing it ever since. -Shirley Max, Cape Girardeau, Missouri

Meet the Cook: I've been making this one-dish meal for more than 30 years. The original recipe called for a single can of sauerkraut - but that wasn't enough for us! My husband (we have a grown son) us pastor to two small-town congregations. Among other occasions, I enjoy preparing this for church potlucks. -Marilyn Dietz, White, South Dakota

Meet the Cook: Traditional meat pies aren't among my husband's favorites. He likes these so much, however, that he even eats them cold! I've found they're a great lunch for a haying crew as well. Brian and I have a son, 11 months. -Wendy Tomlinson, Echo Bay, Ontario

Meet the Cook: To be honest, I don't hear many compliments on this dish...folks are always too busy eating! I developed the recipe by grabbing ingredients from my refrigerator and cupboards one "crunch time" when I needed an easy dish fast. Last year, my husband and I retired from the grocery business - we'd run three rural supermarkets. Now, we're back in school as full-time students. -Kathy McCreary, Goddard, Kansas

Meet the Cook: Experimenting with different herbs and spices led to this sauce...my husband does not like bland food! I now make it for him and our three children - 5, 3 and 22 months - at least once a week. Marc says it's even better the next day. -Sonja Fontaine, Winnipeg, Manitoba
