Basil Beer Bread

Basil Beer Bread

All this talk about herbs from the Botanical Paperworks Giveaway  that I just had to share this truly amazing recipe for Basil Beer Bread. The fresh basil and crunchy crust… all around delicious! This bread is perfect for dipping or alone.

I had always seen beer bread in mixes so I wanted to see if I could make it without a mix, I think when you make this you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make.

    Hope you guys had fun in Kentucky going to make the basil beer bread with the pork tenderloin and peachs —- we love anything with balsamic vinegar.

    Love You, Rita
