“My family loves chili, so I decided to try stuffing green peppers with it,” recalls Verna Redman of Dade City, Florida. “They tasted great and are good made with leftover chili, too,” she adds.

Chicken Meal-In-One

“As the parents of a young son, my husband and I don’t have much time to prepare meals,” explains Jina Nickel of Lawton, Oklahoma. “While our boy is napping, I can assemble this dinner-in-a-dish in just 10 minutes and then pop it in the oven.”

Microwave Swiss Steak

Grace Ling of Winona, Minnesota lets her microwave do the work with this hassle-free Swiss steak dinner. “Because this dish is so simple to assemble, it’s perfect after a long day when I don’t feel like cooking,” she mentions.

Beef Zucchini Soup

“I make this wonderful garden-fresh soup as soon as my homegrown zucchini is plentiful,” remarks Betty Claycomb from Alverton, Pennsylvania. “I often double the recipe and freeze some to enjoy later,” she adds.

Garlic Herb Bubble Loaf

I adapted an old sour cream bread recipe for this deliciously different pull-apart loaf that smells heavenly while baking. It has a light crust, tender interior and lots of herb and butter flavor. We think it’s wonderful with a hot bowl of potato soup. —Katie Crill, Priest River, Idaho
