No-bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars

I want to preface this post with an acknowledgement. Yes, I realize I WAY over-edited that photo. My new camera and my recently downloaded copy of GIMP 2.0 have been so much fun to play with, I haven’t really figured out when to cut myself off. The good news [...]

Peanut butter-filled Chocolate Cookies

How is it possible that I’ve been married for TWO YEARS? I’m really starting to feel like an old lady! We’re not big on lavish gifts, and now that we’re living so far from home, we really don’t need to buy each other any more stuff, because not a [...]

Soba and Spinach Salad

I would like to call your attention to that cute little tree in the column on the right side of the page. The one that says “Super Natural Recipe Search” under it. If you’re trying to eat more whole foods, or if you get some new produce in your [...]

Banana Coffee Cake with Peanut Butter Streusel

I love good banana bread as much as the next person, but sometimes I can’t help but feel there is something missing. Like streusel. Or peanut butter. Or some magical combination of the two. A year ago I attempted to make a peanut butter banana bread but was seriously [...]

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Today I was struck by an overwhelming urge to bake. I am pretty sure this is genetic – my mom says the same thing happens to her on occasion. I immediately thought of the Reeses Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cake over at  Annie’s Eats.    Using her recipe as [...]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These simple cookies combine basic peanut-butter cookie dough (normally baked with fork marks on top) with a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips.  The result is a rich, soft and chewy cookie that goes exceptionally well with a glass of milk.  If possible, eat them when they are still warm [...]

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Growing up, I learned to bake cookies from “Mrs. Fields Best Cookie Book Ever.”  I’m pretty sure there is no better source for cookie recipes anywhere.  I’ve been working my way through the book for years…trying new recipes and remaking old favorites.  Lately, I’ve taken to showing it to [...]
