Basic Beer-Cheese Bread

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Cooking Light, Food Porn, Healthy, Recipes

If you’re anything like me, the cold weather outside has prompted you to try to keep warm with lots of hearty soups and stews. There’s nothing quite like hunkering down in front of the fireplace with a huge steaming bowl of something that’s been cooking all day. Gravy-based stews cry out for a nice hunk of bread.

Here in Columbus, we’ve got snow coming down like gangbusters today. Since we can’t get out to get a fresh loaf of crusty bread from Omega, and we didn’t have hours to bake a yeast bread, we put together of this loaf of beer bread – since it’s a Cooking Light recipe, it’s healthier than beer bread usually is, and you can indulge in a slice even if one of your resolutions was to eat healthier this year. I honestly couldn’t tell the difference between this and much higher fat recipes. Enjoy!

    Foodie is kinda vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post titles to get viewers
    to open the links. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  14. Majorie Server Says:

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
