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.

"A friend made this moist bread for us years ago," recalls Anne Smithson, Cary, North Carolina. "Because it makes three loaves, I can give one loaf to a neighbor, enjoy one with my family and freeze one for later."
My mom was well-known for her delicious Kringle. She made it from memory and when she passed away, we didn’t have the recipe to carry-on this tradition. We searched through her recipes and we found what we believe was her original starting recipe. So that’s where we began. The dough remains the same, but I have adjusted the filling ingredients until it finally came out just right. Try this tender, flaky pastry with its almonds and coconut filling, and you’ll be hooked on it like us!—Debora
