Rosemary Beer Bread with Gouda

When I first started collecting recipes on the interwebz- you know, back before Pinterest, I had a bad habit of copying and pasting recipes and forgetting to attach the website address to the document.  Because of this lazy habit, I have quite a few recipes that I can't credit to the right people.

This bread recipe is one of those.  It's in the oven right now and is making my house smell beyond wonderful.  If anyone recognizes this recipe and knows whose it is, please leave a comment so I can give credit where it is so rightly due.

I added about 2 cups of hickory smoked gouda cheese to the dry ingredients.  Dev loves smoked gouda, and I had a huge piece in the ice box.  I also reduced the sugar to 1/8 cup, because I wanted this to be more of a savory bread to use for leftover ham later this week.  I also upped the rosemary to 2 teaspoons (I was using dry) because I have a big bag of dried rosemary that I need to use up. I ground the rosemary a little in my spice grinder so it would be easier to incorporate into the dough.  I can hear my husband saying, "Why do you bother to look at recipes when you always haul off and do your own thing anyway?"  I guess it's a good thing I don't listen very often, huh?

Here's the recipe for Rosemary Beer Bread-


3 cups all purpose flour, sifted
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp coarse salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped, or 1 tsp dry
1 12oz. can of beer 
1/3 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all dry ingredients together in large bowl.  Add beer and stir well to incorporate.  Batter is quite thick. Pour/press into greased LARGE loaf pan, or an 8x8 inch baking dish.  Pour melted butter over batter.  Run a knife around edges so the butter runs down sides. Place in the middle of your oven and bake for about 50 minutes if using loaf pan, and about 30 minutes if using 8 inch square.  If butter runs over, place aluminum foil on a cookie sheet and place this on the rack beneath your bread.  Let bread cool for about 15 minutes, then run knife around edges and remove from pan.  Serve warm. 

Update:  I took this out of the oven, and I swear half the loaf was gone within 20 minutes.  Only Dev and I are here.... oops.

Carrot Cake!!!!!!

I made my very first ever from scratch homemade cake at 7,500 feet above sea level today. I have made many homemade cakes before, but that was back home in Savannah, which is practically 2 feet below sea level.

After many dismal failures (including box mixes) I have finally made a cake from scratch that turned out decent. No- better than decent. I think this is the best cake I've ever made. No joke.

It all started when my fried Emmy posted on her blog about receiving as a gift from her hubby, a copy of "The Joy of Cooking." By the way, you should go read her blog. She is nauseatingly multi-talented. She cooks and knits beautifully, as well as a bunch of other stuff I learn about every freakin' time I read her blog. So go over to her blog right now.

Anyhoo...she read the high altitude instructions and cranked out a beautiful red velvet cake that made me drool. After reading that, I decided it was time to stop being a wuss about baking at high altitude and try a…

Pork Posole- Instant Pot Version

I have a good friend at work who is from the Jalisco region of Mexico.  Lorenza grew up outside of Puerto Vallarta.  Recently, she has been educating me on where to find the best Hispanic products and food in the valley where we live.

Aside from ruining my ability to ever eat Mexican food in Rifle ever again, her teachings have made me rediscover my love of Mexican food- both dining out and making it at home.

My husband, Will, is battling a cold for the second time in a row- which was the only excuse I needed to get in the kitchen and whip up some posole.

In my opinion, posole is to Mexican mamas what chicken noodle soup is to American/Southern mamas... pure comfort.

I make absolutely no claims of authenticity, nor do I believe this is the best way to make it.  But it sure did hit the spot after a day of cleaning and craft projects!

Here’s the link to the recipe I used from a blog I read frequently called “Pressure Cooking Today.” I did not follow it exactly (big shock- I know) as I…

Day 1 of Summer 2018!

There are obviously many things to enjoy about summer. Cooking is one of my favorites. Making creative meals at a leisurely pace is a luxury that rarely occurs during the school year. 
This is my first leisurely breakfast creation of the summer. I had leftover roasted sweet potatoes, so I threw them in my trusty cast iron skillet with some rough-chopped red onion and breakfast sausage. Devin likes his eggs scrambled. I like my hash topped with a fried egg. Either way you go- it was a suitable First Breakfast of the Summer!
