MY FAMILY enjoys the distinctive taste of caraway, and it abounds in these muffins, which use rye flour for a change of pace. I serve them for brunch, lunch or dinner. I often try new recipes, but it's especially gratifying when a new dish is requested over and over again. -Jean Tyner, Darlington, South Carolina

Enjoy the old-fashioned appeal of gingerbread in a loaf with this recipe originally from Holland. This moist spicy bread smells delicious while it's baking...and slices are wonderful spread with cream cheese. The recipe makes two big loaves, so we have one to eat and one to freeze for later...or to give away. -Martina Biemond, Rosedale, British Columbia
