Good! I wonder if making your own organic butter would be cheaper? It seems like organic anything is expensive but it might save a few dollars. I really want to try to make my own butter, the recipe I posted seems almost too easy lol

What would be the fridge life of the butter spread?

Anyone have an inexpensive granola mix recipe?

This looks good. It reminds me an irish soda bread recipe that I used to make a lot. I will have to post that one too as it was very yummy with tea.
Yes! All kinds of beer will work. We've used several different kinds, usually whatever my husband has picked up for the week

Re: Homemade Thread

I found some other ones while reading through a blog that I really like - the one with the spreadable butter.

Here is a recipe for "Maple" Syrup and here is another one for dry onion soup mix.

I would think that it would be the fridge life of the actual butter, maybe a little less, but if you are like our family, we go through one in less than a month.
I definitely need to make that because I keep reading terrible things about margarine. Since we are almost out of spreadable butter, its going to be made tomorrow. I bet it would be easy to put some kind of herbs in it to make like a rosemary bread spread, etc.

I will look for a granola mix recipe. I am enjoying searching for recipes!

Love those crinkle brownies! They look sooo good
The original blogger who had the recipe said that she didn't use it. I always do though just b/c I have it to use up.

Re: Homemade Thread

Anyone have a homemade recipe for cheese crackers(like cheez-its)? Or could I use the homemade goldfish recipe and just cut into squares?
