We love this recipe around my house because we can change it from one day to the next on a whim. Just throw whatever fruit is in season into the mix, and you’ve got a tailor-made treat! —Christine Saxe, Ada, Michigan
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
This recipe came form my mom, who is an excellent cook. It always gets rave reviews. Although fairly simple to make, when you finish you'll feel a sense of accomplishment because it tastes delicious and looks so impressive.
Crunchy, green hulled pumpkin seeds (better known as pepitas)add a slightly nutty taste to this rich and moist bread. Because of their high oil content, pepitas can spoil quickly. Make sure you store them in the freezer to keep them fresh. —Cheryl Perry, Hertford, North Carolina
Ever since my children were small (and it became too difficult for Santa to transport his goods!), I've invited my parents and in-laws over for Christmas breakfast. Undoubtedly, part of the tradition included these easy, rich muffins.
For a fun sweet treat that's certain to satisfy, try this recipe. Drizzled with icing, each finger-licking piece has a yummy surprise filling of apples and pecans. It's well worth the bit of extra effort.

Try my decadent scones as a breakfast or brunch treat or a snack served with coffee and mint tea. They're so festive for the holidays, decked out in red and white peppermint candy. —Shelly Platten, Amherst, Wisconsin
