Meet the Cook: It's been 20 years now since I adapted this from a recipe for beef stew. We like it so much that, in all that time, I have never changed any ingredients or amounts - unless it was to double them! Our home's on a river, and my husband, our three boys - 12, 10 and 9 - and I enjoy camping and boating. -Valerie Jordan, Kingmont, West Virginia

Meet the Cook: Because I've never entered a recipe contest before, I hesitated before sending my stew in. I knew, though, it not only was so good but anybody could make it. You just throw the ingredients into a pot and stir! I've been cooking 40 years. My husband and I have one grown daughter. -Carol Smith, Stuart, Florida

Meet the Cook: This recipe's "famous" with my friends and the younger friends of my grown daughter and granddaughter. I make it for potlucks and other get-togethers. The town where I live is now considered "city". When my late husband and I loved here 40 years ago, though, it was country. He was an ex-farm boy, and always had a large vegetable garden. We were well supplied for winter! -Helen Miller, Hickory Hills, Illinois

Meet the Cook: Green chilies are a big favorite here in the Southwest - my family likes anything with them in it. Now that we are "empty nesters" (two married children and two grandchildren), my husband knows that I'm going to spring at least one new recipe on him each week. He's always brave! -Pat Henderson, Deer Park, Texas

Meet the Cook: Even before it got cold outside last fall, my husband had asked me to make this stew twice. In fact, here at home, our name for it is "Tom's Favorite Stew". We're the parents of two children - a 9-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl. -Linda Schwarz, Bertrand, Nebraska

Irish Lamb Stew

Meet the Cook: With our busy schedule, I cook lots of stews. This one - handed down to me by my mother-in-law - is nice because you can prepare it on the weekend and reheat it during the week. It's a great full-course meal...put out hard rolls and French bread, and you're set. My husband and I have a son, 11. -Jeanne Dahling, Elgin, Minnesota

Italian Hunters Stew

Italian Hunters Stew

Italian Hunters Stew

Meet the Cook: This is an all-time favorite because it combines the satisfying ingredients of meat and vegetables with the flavor and textures of pasta dishes. My husband is a hunter besides, so on occasion I'll use elk or venison in place of the beef. We have three daughters and three grandchildren. Plus, my husband's the oldest of 14 children. Having 30 or 40 for holiday dinners isn't uncommon! -Ann Shorey, Sutherlin, Oregon
