I've come to love Tastefully Simple's shaker herb mixes. So, I found this (it IS a Tastefully Simple recipe with some of my own modifications) and prepared to make it for friend's. Except, the hubs texted me while he was getting groceries to say he couldn't find a beer bread mix. "I'm on it!", I say. Luckily, I work in a different town, so we have twice the opportunity to get fancy stuffs like this -- I went to this wonderful little gourmet foods store and picked up an Italian bread mix that uses beer for the liquid. Simples! It's a wonderfully hearty, savory, bread.
