Nutmeg and cinnamon add spice to these flavorful loaves from Alice Manzo of South Easton, Massachusetts. The flecks of green zucchini and red cranberries give each slice a festive look that's just right for the holidays.
Cornmeal adds a slight crunch to these breakfast or brunch treats. Kathy Zielicke of Moore Haven, Florida writes, "These scones are nice with a cup of hot tea or coffee. For a change of pace, try them with the dried berries of your choice. They're sure to brighten your day."
My daughter started making these as a "healthy" alternative to cookies since we seem to like cookies of any kind. I've never been able to eat just one, so this recipe seemed perfect for us. —Nichole Jones, Idaho Falls, Idaho
It's sometimes difficult to get our daughter to eat healthy foods, but she gobbles up these fruit-filled muffins. Although these are a "must" around the holidays, I keep cranberries in the freezer so I can whip up a batch any time of year. —Esther Bowers, Westland, Michigan
Many people —especially children—don't care for fruitcake, so I came up with this sweet biscuit recipe. A few years ago these strips earned high honors in a recipe contest sponsored by a local newspaper.

Betty Jackson of White Pine, Tennessee writes, “I wanted to add some extra flavors, such as cranberries, to one of our favorite pumpkin bread recipes, so I kept experimenting. This sweet bread turned out great.”
