Ever tried to make biscuits and they just come out of the oven like dry pieces of cardboard? Or they carry a taste reminiscent of baking soda?
Beer Bread is one of the quickest bread recipes out there, with a distinct flavor and an awesome moist texture.
Beer has rising agent in it already, but most store-bought beer will not have enough of it to make the bread rise; for this, most beer bread recipes include baking powder, which reacts with the beer to lets the bread rise and develop air pockets. Because of this process, Beer Bread is certainly a ‘quick bread’ – the recipe consists of mixing the dry ingredients together, then mixing in the melted butter & beer, then baking right away. There are no rising times or kneading.
Just wanted to let everyone know that a new video is up on my YouTube channel! This one is a recipe video for my Garlic Spiral Rolls, which were posted on my blog last year, and you can find them here on my blog.
If you like the video, please subscribe for more! I’m planning on releasing a couple more just over the next week, and am hoping for more to follow in the near future.
These rolls are quick and easy to throw together, and turn out amazingly! They rise quickly, are soft and fluffy, taste great with a bit of butter (and maybe some jam) and make an awesome side to any meal.
Check out the new RECIPE VIDEO on YouTube!

Hello all, thanks for tuning in on today’s recipe! This one is a really really awesome sandwich that you can make at home–it is full of healthy good protein and offers a healthy lunch.
You also have the option to make-ahead if that’s how you like doing things. The protein in here is simple: Boiled eggs and meat. (In this recipe I use pastrami, but you can use whatever meat you so desire.)
This method of eating is important for those of you who, admittedly, rarely eat wholesome foods because (like me) you are picky, or are constantly on the go and simply grab whatever is within reach.
A tip for those who like throwing things together quickly: Boil lots of eggs and slice them ahead of time. This way, you can simply throw everything on your sandwich when it’s time to consume.
OK, now for a bit of NEWS. As you might know, not only do I like making food, but I like writing, so I decided to shake things up a bit on my food blog and and start including not only a recipe but also a poem I wrote before I give the recipe (below):
Ok here it goes: (if you hate poetry you can skip down to my recipe)
The Seasons by Michael Metzler JR
Spring grows most plants in rocky soil,
It takes new life to withered things.
Death defying through turmoil,
And to new life it spreads and clings.
Summer swathes the world in heat
It drapes the land around in glow
It bakes the clay and warms the feet
It is not spring and is not snow.
Autumn brings a yellow air,
It scatters orange like the sand.
Sprinkling leaves as though to share.
It is most glorious and grand.
Winter veers around the bow
With clutching hands and stale breath
It swarms the earth in clear-white snow
It brings no warmth and sometimes death.
Here’s the recipe for my PROTEIN SANDWICH:

Pumpkin season is here, so why not celebrate the upcoming holidays with a simple PUMPKIN bread recipe? This recipe is easy to follow and allows the option to make your own pumpkin puree, the recipe you can find on my blog.
This pumpkin bread is a simple quick bread recipe full of pumpkin and rich with the spices of cinnamon and ground cloves.
I usually make my pumpkin recipes now with Homemade Pumpkin puree, and recommend you do, too. It makes it so that this major ingredient is fresh, and just pureed at home. Not that I have that much against canned pumpkin; the store-bought stuff is great if you are pressed on time and want to quickly and easily make a pumpkin dessert. Honestly, the taste isn’t compromised all that much–but it is cool (and maybe healthier?) to make your own pumpkin puree, which you can then use for all sorts of things including this wonderful fall Pumpkin Bread recipe.
Feel free to add different things to the finished batter of this bread before baking it: Chocolate chips, maybe some hazelnuts? Depending on your tastes. Either or both work well. Perhaps some dried fruit wouldn’t be wasted here, but I’ve never tried it.
If you decide to bake this for the holidays this year, feel free to let me know how it goes! Also be sure to check out some other great recipes on my blog.
