The Carnival of Beauty this week is celebrating The Beauty of Bread. First off, for the sake of full disclosure, you should know that I am not a chef of any sort. But I do love bread, so I figure that still qualifies me to participate in this carnival :-). So here is my contribution this week: Beer Bread! My family loves it! I don't make it all that often because I am a spur-of-the-moment cook, which means that I usually have to use whatever I have on hand... and beer isn't one of the things that I normally find on my shopping list. It's not a particularly beautiful bread... but it is really good! And it's low-fat, with just 0.9 g of fat per serving, and easy to make to boot! I found it in one of my favorite low-fat cookbooks, A Trim and Terrific Louisiana Kitchen. Enjoy!
