And the aroma of fresh-baked bread. The natural companion to America's favorite dinnerware is Madeira Crystal by Franciscan. Since you cherish these true pleasures, the honest spirit of Franciscan Earthenware and Madeira Crystal is your natural choice.

I am thrilled! There are many more recipes then I expected. I am very excited since my husband often works late and I end up with sandwiches rather then making myself something to eat.. —Barbara Andersen, New York
