You’ll think you woke up in the tropics when you dive into this French toast breakfast. There’s a bright, citrusy flavor and a wonderful blend of textures in every slice.—Carol Gillespie, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania
"This is one of my favorite snacks to take to large get-togethers," writes Grace Yaskovic from her Branchville, New Jersey home. Cinnamon, brown sugar and butter create a lip-smacking coating for cereal and a variety of nuts in this change-of-pace party mix. One handful simply isn't enough!
These muffins make a great snack for kids (I have seven grandchildren and three great-grandkids) because they have so many healthy ingredients. I also turn to this recipe when I have to furnish muffins for church gatherings.

Pineapple, mango and kiwifruit give Christy Johnson's fruit salsa a tropical twist. "This combination of fruity salsa and crisp gingery chips is wonderful on a hot day," she writes from Columbus, Ohio. "I like to serve this with pineapple iced tea, which I make by simply adding some of the drained pineapple juice from this recipe to a pitcher of tea."
My family and friends love this dessert, and I've shared the recipe several times. The crunchy nut crust and colorful raspberry filling make it special enough for guests. During the holidays, I substitute a can of whole-berry cranberry sauce for the raspberries.
Beverly Ellis of McKenzie, Tennessee shared this appetizing eye-opener. Flavored with orange juice and nutmeg, this nutty French toast bake is perfect for overnight company because it's assembled a day ahead.
