Honey Beer Bread

I hope everyone’s week is going well. I started out my Monday morning with jury duty.  After driving nearly 30 miles to the county justice center, the defendant for the case I was assigned was a no-show.

Pão de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Bread)

Is it seriously halfway through June already?? It seems like summer has been flying by, though we have been enjoying ourselves so far. We’ve been camping, hiking, and fishing a few times already and had some fun up in Poudre Canyon this past weekend.

Here they are. Alejandro’s coveted blueberry muffins. Though I joke about his obsession with them, I’ve got to give the guy some credit. There is something magical about blueberry muffins. Incredibly moist and packed with bursts of sweet blueberries, they are the perfect breakfast or snack. As far as muffins go, blueberry happen to be… Continue reading Bakery Blueberry Muffins

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Out of all the breads various restaurants offer as appetizers, Red Lobster’s cheddar bay biscuits are by far my favorite. For me, they beat out Olive Garden’s bread sticks and Texas Roadhouse’s rolls. I love how tender they are, and the garlic and cheese flavor is oh so good. A few years back I found… Continue reading Cheddar Bay Biscuits
