"The first time I made these rolls, I was a little worried that my husband wouldn't like them," writes Montserrat Wadsworth of Winnemucca, Nevada. "But he loved them! The seeds on top add flavor and fun crunch."
Though our two children (now grown; we have one granddaughter) dislike bananas, they've always enjoyed this. It's been a standby since my grandmother shared the recipe before I was married. Cooking is fun for me...but I have to admit I would rather bake than make a meal. Yeast breads are my favorites!

These homemade pretzels never last long around our house. My kids love to make them…and eat them! I serve them to company with a variety of dips, such as pizza sauce, ranch dressing, spinach dip or hot mustard. —Elvira Martens, Aldergrove, British Columbia
Beautiful color and light-as-a-feather texture make these rolls our family's favorite for holiday meals. I won the Reserve Champion award at a 4-H yeast bread competition with this recipe.

This yummy bread has a light texture and includes richly flavored ingredients like molasses, brown sugar and oats. One moist slice from these lovely loaves absolutely calls for another.

This tasty Italian-style sandwich can be served warm or at room temperature, and it heats up nicely in the microwave. Friends request it when I’m asked to bring something for a party or gathering. —Sue Shea, Defiance, Ohio
"This savory loaf mildly flavored with chives is delicious when served warm with a meal, soup, salad or stew," relates Deborah Plank of West Salem, Ohio. "It also tastes wonderful toasted the next day for breakfast."
For a tender white loaf that's a bit moister and denser than other breads, try this simple recipe shared by Jeannine Norder of Eaton Rapids, Michigan. It's equally good whether you use beer of ginger ale.
