Zucchini Cheddar Cheese Herb Beer Bread

Zucchini Cheddar Cheese Herb Beer Bread
I adore quick breads, and Zucchini Cheddar Cheese Herb Bread just happens to be one of my favorite savory bread variations. The flavors are delicious, and it's a great way to use up all the garden zucchini that arrives this time of year. Plus it takes under 10 minutes to toss together, and doesn't require a mixer. The insides soft with notes of your favorite beer, cheddar, garlic, and chives. The outside is deliciously crusty from being cooked in butter.

I've already made two loaves this last week, since it's so easy to make. I'm sure there will be plenty more to come as the temperature drops, and we roll into fall to go with all the soups, stews, and chili's that go with the season.

A little tip: If you have more zucchini than you know what to do with, you can grate it, pre-measure it, and freeze it for later. Just make sure to defrost it before adding it to your favorite Zucchini Bread recipe.

Whiskey Peach BBQ Chicken

Whiskey Peach BBQ Chicken
This recipe is sponsored by Safeway and Albertsons

Dinner plans in our house usually sound something like this..

Me: What would you like for dinner?

Colt: I don't know, what would you like for dinner?

Colt: Hmmm... Barbecue sounds really good, and it's hot.

Me: Maybe we should head to pick up a few things, and make a final decision.

Colt: That sounds like a plan!

So we headed to Safeway, and found some really ripe O Organics® Peaches as we walked in the entrance that smelled heavenly from almost five feet away, so we knew they were going to be amazing. Colt picked out quite a few, and suggested we throw them on the grill. 

Then Whiskey Peach BBQ Chicken Breast popped in my head, and Colt agreed that would hit the spot! 

Jamaican Jerk Chicken

Jamaican Jerk Chicken
We live off the BBQ this time of year, and Jamaican Jerk Chicken is a delicious way to keep the flavors changed up. It's an interesting balance of sweet and spicy. 

I used some hot jalapeno's I have growing in the yard with the addition of cayenne pepper, because it's what I had. Traditionally Jerk Chicken has scotch bonnet or habanero peppers, but running to the store was out of the question on this day. Sometimes you just make due with what you have, and this was one of those days.

I really feel Jerk Chicken needs to be barbecued for the ultimate flavor, and at least 6 hours in the marinade to allow the flavors to penetrate the chicken. The smokiness of the barbecue really adds to the flavors.

It's a summertime must make, as long as you like spicy food.
