I combine ingredients for this hearty chili, chunky with veggies, the night before, put in my trusty slow cooker in the morning and come home to a rich, spicy meal at night! —Marjorie Au, Honolulu, Hawaii
If I'm cooking for a party or family get-together, I can put this beef in the slow cooker in the morning and then concentrate on other preparations. It's a great time-saver and never fails to get rave reviews.

This recipe was inspired by all our fresh garden tomatoes and herbs. In summer, I grill the chicken with some Italian seasonings and a bit of garlic powder, but on rainy days or in winter, I cook it on the stovetop. —Rachel Kowasic, Connellsville, Pennsylvania
I love burritos, but the frozen ones are so high in salt and chemicals. So I created these. They're great to have on hand for quick dinners or late-night snacks—I've even had them for breakfast! —Laura Winemiller, Delta, Pennsylvania
Makeover Penne with Vodka Cream Sauce is still creamy, rich and restaurant-quality special, but it now has less than half the original recipe’s fat and cholesterol. Even our pros had a hard time telling them apart. Debra Torres - Clarion, Pennsylvania
We've always liked stuffed peppers, but everyone is pleasantly surprised at this mildly spicy version. For convenience, you can assemble these pretty peppers ahead of time and bake them later.
