This savory stromboli relies on frozen bread dough, so it comes together in no time. The golden loaf is stuffed with cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers and olives. I often add a few slices of ham, too. It's tasty served with warm pizza sauce for dipping. —Jenny Brown, West Lafayette, Indiana
These zippy ground beef meatballs are my favorites, and the recipe is so easy. Cranberry, chili and picante sauce sound like an unusual combination, but the flavors blend deliciously. Our nine grandchildren request these meatballs often.
When I moved to Kansas City from Texas, I brought many of my mom's best-loved recipes with me, including these saucy sweet-and-sour wings. This recipe turned a friend of mine, who's not a fan of chicken, into a real wing lover.

I serve this roast often to family and friends...and someone at the table always asks for the recipe. To complete the meal, I make stir-fried green beans and a lightened-up version of twice-baked potatoes.

As a farm girl, I often made Christmas goodies with my mother for our family of eight candy-loving kids. Now, my own children and grandkids say the season wouldn't by the same without a tray filled with this chocolaty peanut brittle.
It's a tradition in our house to start baking Christmas cookies early in the season and try some new recipes every year. This nutty glazed melt-in-your-mouth cookie is one of my favorites.

Eating less sugar meant limiting sweets, so I adapted this longtime favorite of my mother-in-law's. For a fun twist, spread the meringue into a regular-size pie tin, bake it and add the lemon filling.

Tender chops cook on a bed of creamy potatoes in this all-in-one meal. It's a snap to assemble, thanks to frozen hash browns, canned soup, shredded cheese and french-fried onions.
This plate-filling sausage dish appeals to most every appetite, from basic meat-and-potatoes fans to gourmets. My daughter, a Montana wheat rancher's wife, says she serves it often to satisfy her hardworking family. —Lorraine Martin, Lincoln, California
My entire family just loves this delicious and comforting soup. Loaded with chunks of tender beef, the rich broth also includes plenty of fresh mushrooms, sliced carrots and quick-cooking barley.
-Barbara Beattie of Glen Allen, Virginia
My mother brought this recipe back with her from Hawaii about 25 years ago. The tender meat, pineapple-coconut stuffing and sweet-sour sauce made it a favorite of my family and friends. I keep copies of the recipe on hand to share.
