According to the Consumer Reports December 1995 (page 799-801), the best
bread machine is a Regal Kitchen Pro K6743.  The Zojirushi is 8th on the
rankings.  I bought one of the smaller Regal models for $100 Canadian (about
US$73) and it works well.

Anyway heres a web location with a recipe of the month:

Jan. 1996 - Mixed Fruit Bread (Makes 1-1/2 lb. loaf)

Note #1: Add the fruit and nuts 15 minutes after you press the START button. 
Note #2: Moisture in dried fruit varies, so 10 to 15 minutes after adding
the fruit, check mixture. 
If too dry, add 1 or 2 tablespoons water. If too wet, add additional flour.
