cooking with beer

Since autumn is quickly approaching I am very happy to enjoy the hearty foods that come with the brisk temperatures and changing leaves.

When I was home, my Mom and I were at the grocery and I noticed one of the little magazines at the check out that was all about cooking with beer. I flipped through the pages and then decided to buy one. I've since been intrigued by all of the possibilities considering I live in the hometown of beer and I'm constantly looking for new ways to incorporate it into cooking. There is even a recipe for a chocolate stout cake!

Last weekend we made a verde beer soup and this weekend I decided to make some beer bread (or in my case muffins). If the grocery not been closed I would have also made a beer cheese fondue to dip it in.

Add some cheese and jalapenos to your beer bread - it's delicious!

I also love beer cheese soup.

I never tasted anything made with beer. It must be interesting.

You're such a girl after my own heart - I don't know how I didn't think of that.

It's quite yummy and the beer cooks off leaving just a subtle taste. It's quite good.
