Wyoming Whopper Cookies
These big country cookies are made to travel-in fact, I came up with this recipe while trying to match a commercial cookie that was good, but too crumbly to carry. -Jamie Hirsch, Powell, Wyoming
My Best-ever Jambalaya
I tried to mimic Jambalaya from my favorite restaurant and it turned out so well my daughter and husband now prefer my recipe and won't order it when we go to the restaurant! -Alexis Van Vulpen, St. Albert, Alberta
Great as an appetizer, but you can easily turn this into a meal. Instead of topping bread, serve over warm pasta. -Georgette Stubin, Canton, Michigan
Spicy Shredded Chicken
I love Mexican food, but not the high calorie count that often comes with it. This easy dish is healthy, delicious and a definite crowd pleaser! I like to serve the chicken with warm tortillas, rice, beans and salsa. For an equally awesome dish, you can substitute beef or pork for the chicken. -Heather Walker, Scottsdale, Arizona
Black Beans With Bell Peppers & Rice
My meat and potatoes husband goes for this cheesy, hearty black beans and rice recipe, and the kids gobble it up. For extra kick, add a splash of hot sauce. -Stephanie Lambert, Moseley, Virgina
Charoset with apples, walnuts and spices has a special meaning for the Passover holiday. It represents mortar used for brickmaking when the Israelites were in Egypt. The sweetness represents freedom. -Gloria Mezikofsky, Wakefield, Massachusetts
For 15 years my husband, daughter and I owned and operated an apple orchard, where we raised 27 variations of apples on 2,200 trees. This easy apple tart recipe is my personal favorite. My family even prefers this wonderful dish with tart apples over traditional apple pie. I hope you enjoy it, too. -Marilyn Begres, Dexter, Michigan
Roasted Vegetables With Sage
When I can't decide what vegetable to serve at dinner, I turn to this oven-roasted medley that features brussels sprouts, potatoes, carrots and butternut squash. It pleases everyone around the table.-Betty Fulks, Onia, Arkansas
