Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Cookies


Operation No Social Media was almost a success.  I peeked at twitter on Saturday, but other than that I did pretty well (and I honestly didn’t miss it that much). Last week included the 8th grade trip to Six Flags in Vallejo, which was a ton of fun.  All day […]

Peanut Butter Cake


The last few days have been completely taken over by math.  Matrices haunt my dreams, I’m constantly running through proofs and derivations, and I’m sort of accepting the fact that number theory is way over my head.  This stupid test is in two weeks and I can’t wait to […]

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I have a complex relationship with Trader Joe’s. The cheese section makes me swoon, I am slowly working my way through the entire wine section, and their butter is a great deal. I don’t think it’s necessary to discuss the pound plus chocolate bars and how I feel about […]

Peanut Butter – Chocolate Whoopie Pies

I’ve already made peanut butter chocolate whoopie pies, but those were chocolate with peanut butter frosting. This time, thanks to the Whoopie Pie book I got for Christmas, it was time to try those flavors the other way around. I think my one major mistake was using natural, unsweetened […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

I LOVE baking for other people’s birthdays. Especially when those other people like the same kind of cake as I do AND they invite me to their party. As you can see, this cake is covered with chopped up peanut butter cups and the most amazing velvety smooth peanut […]

Rice Noodle Salad with Peanut Dressing

Such a pretty salad. Unfortunately, that wasn’t quite the presentation we got for dinner. Yes, I’m that ridiculous about my blog – I plated it, took pictures, then dumped the whole thing in tupperware for dinner on the road. And yes, we ate it straight from the container. We’re […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were always my favorite. I happily ate PB & J day in and day out from first grade through high school, and I’d still choose it over most other sandwiches even today. The concept of putting peanut butter and jelly together in dessert form? […]

Chocolate Chip Muffins with Peanut Butter Swirl

I feel like muffins come in 3 categories. Healthy, Seems Like it Should be Healthy, and Let’s Be Honest This is Actually a Cupcake. These fall into the last category, but sometimes life just calls for ridiculously indulgent treats for breakfast. I made these for my usual Friday take-to-work […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies

I will never get sick of the chocolate and peanut butter combination. I was reminded of this fact the other day at Trader Joe’s, when they were sampling peanut butter cups that were about fifty thousand times better than Reese’s. We almost bought some, but baking whoopie pies just […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Bars

Yep, two desserts in a row. I baked a couple things for Mothers Day, but other than that I’ve been eating mostly just salads and random combinations of beans, grains, and vegetables that don’t seem creative enough to warrant a blog post. So you get dessert instead! My sister […]
