"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.
"I bake these soft and golden sandwich buns a few times a week because my whole family loves them," reports Lesa Young of Turpin, Oklahoma. "I made 300 for a wedding reception and received compliments for weeks afterward."
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.

Almost any occasion's right for these handy rolls—I keep them in the freezer for Sunday meals and for company (they have never failed to taste fresh), and I've served them for everything from baptisms to family dinners.
My husband and I have three children, ranging in age from 8 to 4.
I adapted an old sour cream bread recipe for this deliciously different pull-apart loaf that smells heavenly while baking. It has a light crust, tender interior and lots of herb and butter flavor. We think it's wonderful with a hot bowl of potato soup.

My husband recalls that on more than one occasion while he was growing up, he stayed home from school sick, napped on the couch and woke to the aroma of his mother's freshly baked bread. That's enough to make anyone feel better!—Denise Baumert, Dalhart, Texas
I've made so many of these delicious rolls that I think I could make them blindfolded! I always take about 200 of them to the senior citizens' dinner at our church. After shaping the rolls, you can freeze them, then just thaw and bake when you need them.
This moist savory bread pairs nicely with a variety of main dishes. It's great with soup...and makes a wonderful grilled ham and cheese sandwich. I came up with the recipe a few years ago when I wanted to use up the fresh rosemary in my garden.

Kielbasa and sauerkraut star in a tasty filling for these scrumptious stuffed rolls, which make a great dinner with soup or salad. My family also loves leftover bundles right out of the refrigerator for a quick lunch.
