Homemade Raisin Sandwich Bread
Mary Cassidy of Aurora sent in this recipe for raisin sandwich bread, which she cut out of the Chicago Tribune years ago and wanted to share with new readers. The recipe dates to the 1950s.The bread is rich and dense — not soft and chewy like many processed breads. For breakfast, it makes wonderful toast and French toast — or just spread cream cheese on it. For a distinctive twist to lunch, make sandwiches filled with cold pork roast or fresh chicken salad. This recipe makes two loaves, and freezes beautifully. — Alicia E. Tessling, former Chicago Tribune Test kitchen director

Caper-raisin Relish
This nearly-addictive sweet and tangy caper raisin relish complements virtually everything from simple steamed squash to grilled poultry. Try it over pasta tossed with shredded romano cheese for a bold-flavored dish. Omit the anchovies if they are not your thing, but replace them with some dried mushroom powder or a splash of soy sauce for an umami punch.

Sliced zucchini
I love the idea of muffins, but they’re rarely done well. They’re dry, don’t really deliver on fruit to muffin dough ratio, and are usually more calories than their buttery breakfast cousin: the croissant. So when I started making these (because making croissants seems difficult and too tempting), I was thrilled to find that not only do they stay moist, but they’re flavorful and taste super healthy. That I use butter instead of oil in this recipe is a personal preference and refusal not to have butter as part of everything I eat. But you can easily see that with a few very minor adjustments (oil instead of butter, whole wheat flour instead of white), these muffins can be a super healthy start to your day.
