These sweet and savory bread recipes will fill your home with heavenly scents and make your family and friends feel the love.

Michigan Balaton Cherry Focaccia

Pictured Above: Mouthwatering and festive, this recipe from my Cherry Home Companion cookbook is killer for breakfast or dessert.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread

This is Diane Kolak’s family recipe—it bakes up like a rich, moist brownie. Perfect for brunch, dessert, or midnight snack!

Whole Wheat Flat Bread

These savory Moroccan rounds need to rise several times, but your kitchen time will be worth it. Serve them warm with dips or with cheese.

Pinconning Cheddar Dill Puffs

Pictured Above: This is a found recipe to which we gave some local flavor with some extra-sharp Pinconning cheddar, and the puffs are perfect as appetizers. You’ll need parchment and a pastry bag with a half-inch plain tip (or a plastic storage bag with a hole cut in one corner).

Scratch Cranberry Bread

Make this ultra-moist bread from scratch or take the shortcut that my sister, Judy Perricone, loves. Every year she makes 12 loaves for her appreciative friends at work.
