My mom made game hens for my dad once a week. When my sister and I were little we would try to sneak some of the chicken from his plate. For this dish, use whatever herbs you have on hand. If you have some in the garden, even better! —Meagan Meyer, Irving, Texas

Layered desserts always grab my family's attention, but salads? Not so much. I wondered if I presented a healthy salad in an eye-catching way, I could get everyone on board. I’m happy to report that I was correct. Find tons more of my salads and other good stuff at foodyschmoodyblog.com. —Christine Hadden, Whitman, Massachusetts
When I serve this Mexican-style casserole, everyone scrapes the plate clean. Offer fresh toppings like green onions, tomatoes and avocado. —Jennifer Stowell, Smithville, Missouri
My mother's cooking is the inspiration behind this recipe. I adapted her scrumptious Easter leg of lamb so it can be served any day of the week. —Bryn Namavari, Chicago, Illinois
These cute little patties are a great way to get my whole family to enjoy salmon, even my toddler! And I love the fresh flavor the lemon and dill add. —Brandi Murphy, McMinnville, Tennessee
This pizza is crazy good! It pops with flavor from caramelized leeks and garlic. The sweet onion is perfectly balanced by the salty prosciutto. I roast my own tomatoes when I have an abundance, but if you don't have fresh, canned tomatoes also work great. Don't be afraid of the four cloves of garlic —you'll love them. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
