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
My family loves the fragrance of these rolls as they bake, and each person has come to expect them whenever I make a special meal. After that meal, these rolls can be easily reheated and "freshened." Just pop them in the microwave, or put them in a moistened paper bag and then place the bag in an oven on low heat. —Anna Baker, Blaine, Washington
While dinning with a Russian immigrant family, I jumped at the chance to add this wonderful bread they served to my recipe collection. Of course, I never turn down hugs from my grandchildren after I've prepared something special...and this recipe always works!

A delicate texture makes this bread absolutely wonderful. I sometimes use this French bread recipe to make breadsticks, which I brush with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic powder. – Deanna Naivar, Temple, Texas
I got this dough recipe many years ago while visiting a friend's home where we were served the most delicious dinner rolls. I use it for crescent rolls, bread and these jumbo cinnamon rolls. And let me tell you, these buns are no wimps when it comes to packing in big cinnamon flavor. —Bette Lu Lerwick, Albin, Wyoming
My sister and I won blue ribbons in 4-H with this bread many years ago. The recipe makes a beautiful, round golden loaf. With a layer of cheese peeking out of every slice, it's definitely worth the effort.
-Melanie Mero, Ida, Michigan
Many years ago, a good friend gave me her mother's recipe for this delightful bread, and I've made it ever since. It's perfect for a hearty breakfast, especially when smothered with you favorite jam. —Jane Zielinski, Rotterdam Junction, New York
It took no time at all for our home economist to turn frozen bread dough into these irresistible breadsticks. Full cheese flavor, the speedy snacks disappear fast, especially if served with marinara or pizza sauce for dipping.
The tantalizing aroma of this golden loaf baking always draws people into my mother's kitchen. With its circular shape, it's a pretty bread, too. I've never seen it last more than 2 hours once it's out of the oven! — Jeanne Voss, Anaheim Hills, California
This savory, delicious herb bread was a winner at my "cards and games" dinner!The pretty loaves get their deep golden color from whole wheat flour and eggs in the dough. The bread goes well with soup or salad, and it makes great toast, too.
