These muffins are one of the first things my husband gets hungry for when he’s home from deployment. I make sure to have the overripe bananas ready. They’re a family tradition. —Kimberly Duda, Sanford, North Carolina
The orange marmalade and fresh juice in this bread give it a citrusy aroma, moist texture and warm golden color. It's almost like giving friends a gift of home-baked sunshine! —Michele Bragg, Palm City, Florida
I like serve slices of this dressed-up French bread with a chef's salad. It's also a great complement to soup on a cold day. Sometimes I hollow out the loaf and fill it with the creamy mixture before baking. —Laura Murphy
This dinner roll, slightly sweet and so very flaky, was my mother's recipe. It's a simple recipe to prepare, requiring no kneading skills, and the dough is easy to handle. My grandchildren have renamed them "Grandma's Croissants"!
It's always a joy to watch people's faces when I present them with homemade bread. This recipe makes two loaves—one for you to enjoy and one to share with others.—Nicole Gillenardo, St. Peters, Missouri
"This flavorful bread is eye-catching and chock-full of nutrients," writes field editor Nancy Means of Moline, Illinois. "I baked this beautiful loaf on stage at the state fair and won Reserve Grand Champion."
