"My husband, Milt, gave me a bread machine for Christmas, and it certainly has been a time-saver," writes Roxann Field of Hutchinson, Minnesota. "With some trial and error, we came up with this recipe. Quite often, we are asked to bring the golden rolls to family gatherings or potlucks—and we get compliments every time."
IT WAS probably 45 years ago when the thrashers came to dinner at our house and Mother served this bread. Today, every time I bake it, I get nostalgic for those days.
My parents were emigrants from Czechoslovakia and couldn't speak English very well. The thrashers hardly talked anyway - they were too busy enjoying Mother's delicious food!

I absolutely love bacon! I also love recipes that blend sweet and savory flavors, so I put chopped bacon in traditional cinnamon buns for a finger-licking-good combination. —Danielle Williams, Newport, Rhode Island
There's no letting the dough rise overnight with these delightful cinnamon pecan rolls...all you need is a package of ready-made rolls. It can stay your secret that these sticky treats weren't made from scratch!
These quick-to-fix bread sticks are light and flaky, with a little crunch. Serve the cheesy twists as a side dish or even as an appetizer with dip. Tracy Travers of Fairhaven, Massachusetts shared the recipe.
I got this recipe from a neighbor, who's a great baker and cook. She had just taken a loaf of this bread out of the oven one day when I stopped by, and it was so fragrant and attractive that I just had to have the recipe!
A festive shape, zesty cranberry filling and Christmas colors make these sweet rolls a real holiday hit with my crew. Sometimes I change the glaze, omitting the vanilla and using orange juice instead of milk for a tangier taste. —Rita Fenley, Chesapeake, Virginia
I lived in an orphanage 50 years ago and helped out in the kitchen, Back then, I often made this wonderful coffee cake, dutifully following the recipe in the cookbook they used in that kitchen. Years later, when I saw Kate Smith on television, I realized that I had been using her cookbook to make this coffee cake. I was delighted to know I had been using one of Kate's favorite recipes!
My family just can't seem to get enough of these fun, cheesy rolls. They have a delightful texture from the cornmeal and are a great switch from traditional dinner rolls. I like to serve them with spaghetti, lasagna and stew.
