A longtime favorite for potluck dinners is transformed from a side dish to a main course with the addition of cubed ham. This one is always one of the first to go. In fact, people at the end of the line are disappointed if the pan is empty. —Diane Wilson Wing, Salt Lake City, Utah
Meet the Cook: This is a special meal in our house - as soon as I get ribs, I know which dish my family will ask me to make.
My husband and I have three children, ages 8, 6 and 3. So I've automatically learned to be a versatile cook!
-Joanne ShewChuk, St. Benedict, Saskatchewan
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.
Ever since the Taste of Home Restaurant opened its door in downtown Greendale, Wisconsin, diners have been asking us to share this recipe, so here it is.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
This is the best "fooler" recipe I've ever used. It takes just a few minutes but looks like you fussed. You can even place frozen chicken breasts in the marinade and allow them to defrost and marinade in the refrigerator overnight.—Nan Haring, Portage, Michigan
Sweet and tangy, these kabobs have a delicious kick, thanks to the hot pepper sauce. My recipe can be adapted to add your favorite vegetables. It's great with rice and a fresh salad. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
