This roundup has been gently aware that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are something of an American favourite and so comes the inspiration for this week’s roundup: peanut butter. Peanuts aren’t technically nuts, but really, since when did science come before deliciousness?
This is a rehash of a post I ran during our second month, back when we had eight readers. You all can get your chocolate in my peanut butter any time.
During pretty much my entire childhood, I didn’t consider soup a real meal. Soup was the watery stuff you got at grandmother’s birthday, and the only good things that came with it were warm baguettes or prawn crackers.
My kids could probably eat their own weight in granola and yogurt. I may not be fancy enough to make my own yogurt, but to save some cash, I decided to try my hand at making granola.
Oh girl, you know what my favorite sammich ingredient is?
If you love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Reese’s and chocolate chip cookies, this recipe is definitely for you. My first thought was, “Why didn’t I think of this!?!” And they taster even better than they look. Warning: you might drool looking at this cookie porn so get your bib handy.
In case you haven’t turned on a television or computer or stepped out of your house for the past couple of weeks, I have a timely public service announcement for you: tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. That’s right… the holiday with all the chocolate and hearts and little naked babies shooting people with arrows. Oh no! […]
I LOVE peanut butter cookies for two reasons. First, they are delicious. And second, I always have the ingredients in my house (what can I say? I love PB&Js).
Holy Balls, you guys! Who knew balls were so popular around here? Due to the overwhelming demand from Persephone readers for more balls, I’ve taken two more recipes from the Cold Balls section of my Mary Margaret McBride Encyclopedia of Cooking to present to you. But this is serious business, Persephoneers. No laughing! I’m doing […]
In one of my cookbooks there is a whole section of recipes for “cold balls.” And, because I am secretly twelve years old, I snicker to myself every time I pass that chapter. But the more I flipped past that chapter, the more it taunted me. Why hadn’t I tried these recipes yet? Was I […]
Overall, I am not a fancy person. I don’t fully understand garnish, and artfully arranged sauces that look like stretched out, abstract sharks circling my dinner do nothing to entice me. At the same time, I love food and eating, so this six-ingredient pie that takes minutes to make is right up my alley.
I’ll just say upfront that I’ve been in super chocolate-and-peanut-butter craving mode lately. Hence, when the time came to write a food post this week, I whipped out my Hershey’s cookbook and tried to think of something yummy to share with y’all.
After a few busy weeks of moving, I’m back! Did you miss my wit, charm, and questionable taste in recipes?
First of all, I just want to state for the record that this is a real recipe from a real cookbook. This means that of all the combinations of all the different ingredients that can be put on a cracker, someone decided that pickles, peanut butter, and hardboiled eggs belong together.
I expect today’s poll to be controversial and fraught with indecision for our dear readers. This highly-charged debate has been raging for years and has been known to break up friendships and marriages alike. I ask you: what…is your favorite cereal?
