This excellent bran muffin recipe has been in Daria Burcar's family over 25 years. "They're incredibly moist and chock-full of healthy ingredients like raisins, dates and nuts," says the Rochester, Minnesota resident.
These moist, cinnamon-flavored brownies are quite easy to make. The recipe can also be doubled and baked in a jelly roll pan. My husband and I live on a farm in central Nebraska and have two grown daughters.
When very good friends drove a long way to visit me after I moved, I served them this wonderful salad with fruit and nuts. Needless to say, we had a great visit and lots of good food. —Cathy Seed of Summerfield, North Carolina
“I came up with this easy recipe one night, and I’ve made it several times since then. The sauce is not only yummy on green beans but also on frozen broccoli,” says field editor Barbara Carlucci of Orange Park, Florida.
I love to take advantage of the wonderful citrus fruits form our state. These lovely loaves have a refreshing orange zip. I make them for our church's Christmas bazaar bake sale, and they don't last long!

It's rhubarb time! Evelyn Winchester of Hilton, New York has a sweet way to put this spring crop to use—her moist muffin recipe. "I had several rhubarb plants on our farm in Iowa," Evelyn explains. "Even though I moved east to be closer to my children and grandchildren, I still make these muffins. I even won a ribbon with them at the 4-H bake sale here."
