  1. One of the (many) things I love about my husband is that he’s not a wine aficionado. He’s a beer guy. This means that there’s always beer in the house. Our friends are beer people, too. If I’m cooking dinner, they will bring over beer for everyone, usually with a new brand/flavor to try. Here’s the thing: I don’t like beer. At. All. However, they recently brought over a pumpkin beer, and fan that I am of all things pumpkin, I kept the leftovers. Only my brain would see a pumpkin beer and decide I should bake with it. I present to you the recipe for my very first loaf of bread NOT made in the bread maker. I cannot encourage you enough to make this. This pumpkin beer bread has a crackly crust and the insides of the loaf have an almost muffin-like softness. There is the faintest hint of fall in the pumpkin beer scent/taste. As a side note, while I would love to tell you this was baked in an orange loaf pan to represent the pumpkin/fall theme of the recipe, I just have orange loaf pans. I found them years ago at the Crate &Barrel Outlet and cannot say enough good things about them. Here is the recipe, adapted from this recipe for Guinness Beer Bread on Wishes and Dishes:
