Crossroads in life are strange sometimes. You can continue to go straight and stay on the same path, or you can make a turn and go another path. The choice is yours to make when you reach that crossroad. How do you know if you make a good choice if you choose to make that turn? We don’t, it is a gamble.

Sometimes I feel like I want to make that turn, but fear is what keeps me on the same path. Fear is the weirdest thing, it can keep you from discovering a great path, or it can actually keep you from doing something stupid. The thing is you never know when fear is involved.

Change is good

What do you do? It goes back to change is good. You got to swallow the fear and just make the turn. Once you make that turn, that is when the adventure begins. It turns out you end up doing something stupid from making the turn, who cares. It will be a laughter moment in life. So live it up.

I admit I am at a crossroads, and I have a lot of new chapters waiting to be started in my life. So yes I have fear. So I understand the fear of making the turn at the crossroads.

One of the turns is doing the videos for Seduction in the Kitchen. It is the who, what, now that I think I am more afraid of than me looking really fat in the videos. Still, it is a fear I got to just swallow and do it.

On a plus side, if I do the videos the way I want to that is in my head right now, you guys will see more of my personality. which is one the things I said I want to bring to the table here on Seduction in the Kitchen.

Pin this recipe to save for later

Beer bread is very easy to make. It easy and it is actually a quick bread because you’re not using yeast. The only yeast in it is the beer, which helps it rise.

The thing is I don’t drink beer, so I never have a beer in my refrigerator. However, I do like hard apple cider/ale.  So yes you will find that in the refrigerator door.

I was in a bread making mood, and I wanted to make beer bread, but with the hard apple ale. My thought was the apple ale would make the bread slightly sweet. I wanted to give something to the bread that would balance the apple and the sweetness.

I know cheddar would be good to use, but truthfully, I wanted different. So Swiss cheese came to my mind. So let the experiment begin and the end result, well let’s just say people who I let taste test it, there wasn’t even a crumb left, they loved this bread, especially with lots of sweet, creamy butter on it.

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle Redd’s Hard Apple Ale
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Next, mix dry ingredients together.
  3. Then, slowly add the hard apple ale to the mixture. It will get foamy.
  4. Mix everything together.

You have to sift the flour, if you dont that when you get hard biscuit like bread. The sifting helps loosen the flour so you get fluffy bread.

    But if you use the whole bottle of Reddish Apple Ale in the recipe, what will be left to drink???? 🙂

    Think back to when you first started blogging.. You were nervous, excited, and had no idea what you were doing, but knew you wanted to offer do it. Actually, this works for everything from blogging to intimate experiences, but roll with it. You started simple and built out. You gained confidence through experience, and started adding on new things, like Instagram. Some things, like podcasts, didn’t stick, but you learned in all things. You got a stylin’ camera, Parade Community Table hookup, and now you’re ready for the next step in your online evolution. Anything that brings more “Dee” to the site is a good thing.
