Snappy Ginger Muffins

Meet the Cook: To tell the truth, I cook out of necessity but enjoy myself when I bake! I make these for school lunches and my husband to take with him to work. They are nice to serve for breakfast besides. Our children are 9 and 5. While we don't farm, our home's out in the country and we do have a pony here. -Marlene Falsetti, Lowbanks, Ontario

Meet the Cook: This recipe dates back to when our two girls - now 15 and 12 - were in preschool and it was my turn to bring a snack for the class. My husband especially asks for the muffins in winter. Crafts and reading are my hobbies. -Nancy Brown, Klamath Falls, Oregon

Poppy Seed Muffins

Meet the Cook: Because these muffins are a bit heavier than many of the snack type, they are perfect for when you wake up hungry. They're quick and easy, too. I adapted them from a poppy seed quick bread I was served once at a neighbor's. My husband and I are the parents of three sons - 16, 15, and 12. -Kathy Smith, Granger, Indiana

Meet the Cook: Unlike many other baked goods, these muffins aren't sweet...that's one of the reasons I like this recipe. I serve them with soups and stews, just like bread. Cooking for family and friends is something I truly enjoy doing - it relaxes me. My husband and I have two children - a daughter, 4, and a son, 2. -Bernadette Colvin, Houston, Texas

You can serve this loaf year-round— but its cherries give it a pretty Christmasy look. In addition to being a lovely gift, it's something I often include in meals at home. I have also entered my loaf in fairs, where it's always a winner. I'm a widow (three grown daughters) who enjoys baking and crafting.

Breakfast Oatmeal Muffins

When we were farming and raising our three children—now all grown—oatmeal was the "main course" for breakfast many mornings. Often, I'd end up with a cup or so of it left over. So I was glad when my sister-in-law, a war bride from England, asked if I'd like to give her recipe for oatmeal muffins a try! They're so nice to have with a cup of coffee if someone stops in to visit. They freeze well, too, and keep moist...I take them to our church bake sales. These days, I also have half a dozen grandchildren to make my muffins for.

Corn Muffins with Honey Butter

There's an interesting country story behind this recipe. I've worked at our local Farm Bureau office for 15 years. A friend on our women's committee developed it to give people new ideas for using farm commodities. I especially like preparing these muffins for my family on a winter night—along with a big pot of chili, they make for a very hearty meal! My husband and I have a farrow-to-finish hog operation here on the farm where he was born. We also grow several crops. One son farms with us, we have a grown daughter and our other son just graduated from high school.

Almost any occasion's right for these handy rolls—I keep them in the freezer for Sunday meals and for company (they have never failed to taste fresh), and I've served them for everything from baptisms to family dinners. My husband and I have three children, ranging in age from 8 to 4.

My dad has been a wheat farmer all his life and my state is the wheat capital, so this recipe represents my region and my family well. This bread never lasts too long at our house.

I like this recipe because it allows me to bake bread early in the morning, leaving time for other things. We live in a Scandinavian area, so this bread hits the spot with family and friends.
