From the kitchen of Hope MacFarlane of Lincoln, Nebraska come these succulent chops practically overflowing with delicious stuffing. “This is a great change of pace,” says Hope, “especially when company's coming.”
This pork casserole is a perfect mix of sweet and tart, and is quite an unusual use of rhubarb. I enjoy rhubarb but I'm not a dessert person, so I like to use it for more than pies and cobblers. —Jeanie Castor, Decatur, Illinois
This recipe has been in the family since I was a kid. It was a Sunday night ritual then, and remains one today in my home. A dressed-up hot roll mix gives us enough dough for two flavorful crusts, so there is plenty of sausage-pepperoni pizza to serve company.
This recipe is perfect for barbecues and parties! A spicy citrus marinade adds plenty of flavor to the tenderloin overnight. Then you can grill the meat in just minutes the next day. —Rosetta Hockett of Colorado Springs, Colorado
Taquitos are a popular appetizer and these homemade ones are so much better than the frozen ones in the supermarket. If you want a little more punch to the filling, adjust the seasonings to suit your taste.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
This surprisingly simple pork tenderloin is unique and full-flavored! The sauce is bursting with fig flavor, while the seasoning adds bite, and the orange adds subtle citrus flair.

From just two trees, we get an abundance of pears. So I'm always looking for new ideas on how to use them. This elegant roast offers a delicious way to incorporate pears into a main dish stuffing and glaze.
At church socials and family reunions, this satisfying dressing has always been well received. It's a favorite with our family, too. I cut back on the recipe to serve a smaller group. —Ruth Hayward, Lake Charles, Louisiana
When company's coming or when I need a quick-and-easy dish to pass, this is my hands-down favorite. A neighbor introduced me to the delicious combination of fluffy rice and sage-seasoned sausage. One forkful was all it took to convince me that I'd found a winner.
