I've never made it, but there's a beer bread recipe here somewhere that everyone bragged on.
i made the beer bread long ago. i did not like it. just not worth wasting a beer for.

I agree with you Babe........that beer bread was all the rage about 20 yrs ago if I remember correctly....never did a thing for me either. Something about the texture and flavor being "off".

Oh, how funny. I just got an email with beer as an ingredient to grill chicken, and I toyed with the idea of just buying 1 at a convenience store, rather than a whole six pack. Good thing I got the 6 ...

Beer works great in many fondue recipes - here is one I like from the Food Network: Cheesy Beer Fondue Recipe : Sandra Lee : Food Network

Oh my goodness...I just got finished watching Melissa D'arabian (winner of the chef competition) doing her first(?) Food Network show called Ten Dollar Dinners. She did a good job but...okay, she made lemonade from concentrate (using a little less water) and poured about a half cup of beer on the top....(gross)....she said you want to do it just before guests arrive so there's foam on the top. Does this sound good to anyone? I'm not a beer lover so maybe that's why I was like

I love a good beer cheese soup. I know, very 70's...
(kids in college drink a combo of limeade and beer, so it's been reported)

Well let's put it this way, I'm not a lemonade lover just give me the beer I recently found an ale a bron beer I just love. I leaves a nice softly sweet after taste in the mouth. Goes great with salty things and also cheese.
And I'm not a drinker.

i don't think it was her first show, i have seen her a couple of times. never in prime time. i don't think she is doing very well. the format they gave her stinks, in my opinion. she seems to know what she is doing but doesn't act like she is having much fun doing it. i saw the beer thing too, and i too went
