A few great recipes that people frequently request from us.

Beer Bread

  • 3 cups self rising flour
  • cup of sugar
  • 1 bottle of beer
Mix all ingredients together. Pour into greased bread pan and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Yes it's just that easy.

The key to this bread is the beer you choose, the better the beer, the better the bread.


  • 1 can of Rotel (the Mexican Festival tastes best, but use the extra hot for a spicy salsa)
  • 1 12oz. can of diced peeled tomatoes (fresh tomatoes may be used, but be sure to drain them)
  • an onion diced and rinsed (not rinsing will give you a very strong onion taste after it sits a day)
  • 1 or 2 jalapenos diced (boil before dicing for a milder salsa, use habenero peppers for spicier)
  • 2 to 4 cloves of fresh garlic diced
  • Diced fresh cilantro to taste (a tablespoon is a good starting point)
  • One or two teaspoons of lime juice (too much will make it bitter, but a little sugar will fix that)
  • Salt to taste (if the salsa is a little bland, add more salt it brings out the flavor)
Put every thing into a blender and run on the lowest setting for 5 to 15 seconds. Just long enough to get all of the ingredients mixed and the tomatoes chopped. To make more of a taco sauce out of it leave blender running for 30 seconds or longer.
