Parmesan cheese and dill make this the most incredible chicken salad I’ve ever tasted. For the no-cook version, use canned chicken. These sandwiches are a simple entree to serve at parties, showers or picnics.—Jaclyn Bell, Logan, Utah
Fruity salsa dresses up these juicy chicken patties, that are perfect for feeding a crowd. The fun name reminds kids of the fable and makes them eager to try one.—Laura McAllister, Morganton, North Carolina
These easy wraps are my go-to recipe when I want to make an exciting sandwich my family will love. The spiced chicken strips taste amazing with the tangy mango sauce.—Jan Warren-Rucker, Clemmons, North Carolina
When I moved to Nebraska, I discovered many ethnic foods that I had never heard of before. A friend introduced me to this German-Russian beef sandwich, and it quickly became a family favorite. —Dolly Croghan, Mead, Nebraska
Before heading to work in the morning (I'm a dental assistant), I'll get this going in the slow cooker. Then it's all ready to serve - usually with hard rolls and potato salad or another salad - as soon as my husband and I walk in. When my son - one of three children...24, 22 and 19 - moved to another state recently, I cut up beef roast in smaller portions, repackaged it and sent seasonings for a two-person slow cooker as his housewarming present.

Famous in Louisiana, muffulettas are cold cuts, cheese and olive salad layered into an Italian bread shell. I was happy when a friend and co-worker gave me this recipe so I could make them myself. More than a meal, it’s a dining experience!
Meet the Cook: These burgers were a favorite when I was growing up. I now use them as a way to "fancy up" a barbecue without a lot of extra preparation. They keep me out of a hot kitchen yet let me serve a nice meal. Fresh fruit and corn on the cob are wonderful accompaniments.
As the oldest of six children, I began cooking when I was very young. But I really started enjoying cooking 2 years ago when I married a very appreciative husband. He inspires me!
