This big sandwich, inspired by one I tried at a New York deli, is a favorite with our football-watching crowd. Made ahead, it's easily carted to any gathering. Kids and adults alike say it's super. —Marion Lowery, Medford, Oregon
One look at this impressive sandwich and your family and friends will know their taste buds are in for a treat. I have served it many times for casual lunches and suppers. The tall layers prompt people to ask how they're supposed to eat it. I encourage them to simply dig in and enjoy! —Margaret Yost, Tipp City, Ohio
This tender beef has become a tasty tradition when I cook for our harvest crews and for neighboring ranchers who come to help us sort our cattle. Those hungry folks have been a good testing ground for recipes. They let me know if a new one I try is a "keeper".

A creamy avocado spread and thick slices of fresh mozzarella and tomato dress up these chicken burgers. They're wonderful with buttered boiled potatoes or a salad. —Lisa Hundley, Aberdeen, North Carolina
These are perfect to pack in your kids' lunch boxes when they can't face another boring sandwich. We love the salmon, cream cheese and dill tucked inside a crusty roll. The carrots and celery add a nice crunch.

This tasty Italian-style sandwich can be served warm or at room temperature, and it heats up nicely in the microwave. Friends request it when I’m asked to bring something for a party or gathering. —Sue Shea, Defiance, Ohio
