"My husband worked in Chicago-area pizza restaurants throughout high school and college. He says pizza is a work of art, and his are beautiful. Our girls prefer Daddy’s pizza to ordering out!” —Julie Host, Polk City, Iowa
"The original recipe for this bread was printed in the cookbook that came with my bread machine," relates Florence Lowe of Zanesville, Ohio. "I liked it so much, I added some seasonings to produce a loaf similar in flavor to a focaccia bread I like."
Looking for an alternative to garlic bread? Try this golden focaccia bread that's a big hit at our house. The dough is easy to whip up in the bread machine, then season with rosemary, garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. I serve it warm whenever we're having spaghetti or another Italian dish.

“This is a very old recipe from my aunt that I revamped to use my bread machine,” writes Peggy Burdick of Burlington, Michigan. The pastries are deep-fried, then glazed with a simple maple frosting. “They’re very good for coffee breaks,” she notes.
"I own two bread machines and love to come up with different recipes to try in them," writes Diane Widner of Blue Island, Illinois. "This golden loaf, with its tasty combination of anise and almond flavors, is especially nice to serve during the holidays."
