Oops, I did it again.

Drizzling butter over the top of this Pepper Jack Beer Quick Bread towards the end of baking gives it a wonderfully brown and crisp crust, with a great rich Brown Ale flavor.I baked an incredible quick bread.  I am sorta in love with it.

I hate to admit this, but I was vacillating about slicing it up.  I thought it looked so good and I didn’t want to cut into it.  But the reality is I was salivating so much that I actually couldn’t wait to try a slice.

Drizzling butter over the top of this Pepper Jack Beer Quick Bread towards the end of baking gives it a wonderfully brown and crisp crust, with a great rich Brown Ale flavor.I have made beer bread in the past, but this one is the best.  Slowly I took my first bite.  It practically melted in my mouth.  Oh and it pairs well with a glass of beer too.

Drizzling butter over the top of this Pepper Jack Beer Quick Bread towards the end of baking gives it a wonderfully brown and crisp crust, with a great rich Brown Ale flavor.And on that note, I need to make sure there is enough bread left for breakfast tomorrow.  Gotta go.

It’s the end of a warm Sunday afternoon.  We had been out all day.  I was thirsty.

When topped with club soda, scoops of sorbet become a creative mocktail that's light and refreshing just like this Sorbet Club Soda Float.But more than just thirsty.  I wanted something refreshingly sweet.  At that moment, a memory jogged in my mind about all those years mom would make a sherbet punch and put it in a big punch bowl to serve at our holiday events.  This kids all loved it because it was so colorful and tasted delicious.

I took that thought and created this adorable cub soda float.  You can use sparkling water too, but I had club soda in the pantry and I put it to good use.

My own individual punch bowl in a glass.

When topped with club soda, scoops of sorbet become a creative mocktail that's light and refreshing just like this Sorbet Club Soda Float.So I crawled onto the couch, turned on the TV and relaxed sipping my own Sorbet Club Soda Float.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
