With a toddler in the house, I look for foods that are a snap to make. Loaded with beef, cheese and a flavorful rice mix, these enchiladas come together with out any fuss. But they're so good that guests think I spent hours in the kitchen.
My mom made these tender ribs for special Sunday suppers when we were growing up. A few common ingredients are all you need to make the zesty sauce that coats them. My family's eyes light up when I bring a plate of these ribs to the table, and company never suspects how easy they are to prepare.

My husband and his buddies love to pack these tasty sandwiches when they go on fishing trips. The tangy tuna salad gets fun flavor from sweet pickle relish and lots of crunch from apples, celery and walnuts. The satisfying sandwiches are a complete meal in themselves.

This is my husband's favorite dish. He always requests it—even on holidays! You'll love the variety of cheeses and spices that jazz up this manicotti recipe. It's restaurant-quality, but at a quarter of the price! —Luanne Wallace Bennett, Powder Springs, Georgia
There are no complicated steps to follow when preparing this roasted medley of tender pork and veggies. Just season with herbs, then pop in the oven for less than an hour. —Diane Martin, Brown Deer, Wisconsin
"This is by far the simplest way to make roast beef and gravy," assures Abby Metzger of Larchwood, Iowa. "On busy days, I can put this main dish in the slow cooker and forget about it. My family likes it with mashed potatoes and fruit salad."
