It’s almost August, which is National Peach Month! I may have jumped the gun a few days, but Grilled Peach Goat Cheese Salad with Candied Almonds is a recipe that could not wait!
In the Midwest, really good peaches have a short window of time to enjoy….now is that time!
Up until I started writing What the Forks for Dinner? I really was not a fan of fruit on a lettuce salad. It seemed wrong??? Oh contraire….I was wrong! Fruit on salad is delicious!! Here are just a few of my salad recipes that have fruit.
Summer in the midwest is unpredictable at best.This summer has been pretty decent so far…….and then….holy crap its hot!!!!!!! When it’s hot, the last thing I want is to heat up the kitchen, or eat anything hot….ugh! Asparagus Farro Feta Salad is a cool delicious salad…. when its too hot to cook.
Tim and I had to give up our beloved asparagus patch when we moved, but we still enjoy asparagus as much as ever. With summer heat ramping up I really don’t feel like cooking….I barely feel like eating, although I do manage…LOL
The 4th of July is over for another year, and you have beer left. What are you going to do with it??? Honey Beer Bread of course!
You are thinking “She must be crazy….left over beer??? Baking in July???? I can’t say much about left over beer since I don’t drink, but baking in July……come on the air conditioner has been invented!
Besides, who wants to be outside when it’s so steamy hot? Not me! This bread is so good, you will want to stay in and bake no matter what month it is. Honey Beer Bread is perfect for all seasons.
Soup, chili, and stews in the fall and winter. Sandwiches, toast, or just when you want a slice of bread the rest of the year.
A friend of mine had a picture of beer bread she made for her daughters graduation party, and although I know hers was from a mix, it looked delicious. I needed to make some!
Where did I go to search? Pinterest of course. I came across this recipe at Gimme Some Oven. First, the pictures were awesome, they made the Honey Beer Bread look so mouth- watering… I had to try it! I did not change the original recipe click here for Ali’s version.
The only things I suggest are to use local organic honey. Local organic honey is better tasting than store bought, and full of health benefits.
I also suggest a lighter beer, not ‘lite’ beer, but a pale beer. I think a dark beer would be too much, and the color may not be too appetizing.
No words can begin to describe how easy this bread is to make. Six ingredients, less than 5 minutes to mix up, and unattended baking time of around an hour….easy peasy.
Flour, baking powder, and salt….a quick whisk, stir in the beer and honey, Into a bread pan, into the oven, and poof….Honey Beer Bread.
Even a novice baker can make a make a beautiful, delicious loaf of bread in about an hour.
