I work full-time, but I love to cookso I need to rely on meals that are wholesome and fast. This dish deliciously combines both treats! Plus, I like the fact that it doesn't dirty a pile of pots and pans.Helen Vail, Glenside, Pennsylvania
Meet the Cook: Back in the 1950's, I was a home economist for the electric company, which is how I came across this recipe. During spring and summer, when it is hot here, my family especially likes it. (My husband and I have two children and a pair of granddaughters, all grown.)
I've also found this chicken salad is good for women's luncheons and covered-plate meals since it's so different.

Meet the Cook: You'll find that these hearty sandwiches will satisfy even the healthiest appetites. My husband and our three children love them! I like the fact that the recipe makes a big batch of meatballs with tangy sauce.

When I need to fix a quick meal, I frequently turn to this well-loved dish that takes only a few minutes to cook. I've also used chicken instead of shrimp with delicious results. I enjoy preparing holiday meals for my family when everyone can be together. Senior citizen activities also keep me busy.
To prepare this colorful, zesty oven meal, I "shop" in my backyard for the fresh garden vegetables and oranges (we have our own tree!) that spark the ham's hearty flavor. It's my family's favorite main dish.
"This is what I serve each Easter," reveals Jessica Eymann of Watsonville, California. "The sweet spicy glaze turns a plain ham into a mouthwatering sensation. Everyone who tries it loves this juicy main dish!"Jessica Eymann, Watsonville, California
