Tasty Tuesday and Tags!

Welcome back to Tasty Tuesday! Today I want to share something I made for my side and hubby's side of the family for Christmas plus a few extra for neighbors and the postal guy!

First I tried out a few different tags to see which one I liked better and which one was easier to reproduce quickly as I had to make several of them. All of them use the same stamp from Stampin' Up and I spritzed them with a green colored shimmerz. Then went around the edges with distress ink and finally topped them off with a snowflake and dew drop! Voila! Cute little tags to go with a gift! :)

On this tag I used flower soft on the bottom and puffy paint at the top....puffy paint took too long to dry. Yep, I get impatient!

This one uses some kind of glass....not the stuff I just posted about earlier today....but still made out of glass. Sorry can't remember the exact name but got it at Hobby Lobby. This one really sparkles (too bad you can't see it in the pic) and it was hubby's fav but I decided it probably wasn't the best idea to give with food....just in case! Always thinking of safety! :)

These are what I decided to go with ... nice and fluffy flowersoft on the top and bottom! I took a few different posed pics as I was pretty proud of them all! :)

Finally the yummy food!! BEER BREAD!!! I made two kinds....regular and my fav which is whole wheat with garlic and cheddar! YUM!! Goes great with soup during the winter!

This is what the final product looks like all packaged up and ready to hand out!

Now for the recipe!! It is soooooooooooooo difficult to make *chuckle*....a total of 3 ingredients!! LOL!! Yep, you read that right ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS!!!
Click HERE for the regular beer bread recipe and click HERE for the whole wheat version (I added some shredded cheese and garlic powder to mine). Now get to baking!! :)
