St Patricks Day Meal

St Patricks Day Meal

It feels like all over Pinterest during this time of year is fun things to eat, craft, or decorate for St.  Patricks Day. I always pin a million things and plan to do them with my kids but rarely does it ever happen. (Hopefully I’m not the only one) I was out of town with my kids while my husband worked the days leading up to this holiday. So when I returned home I was exhausted, had a pile of laundry to do, and was trying to pick my battles. So the unpacking and laundry was set aside to make this fun …

Peanut Butter Chicken Pad Thai

When I was collaborating ideas of peanut butter recipes to post a peanut butter pad thai was one of the first things. I was trying to think of something different then just peanut butter desserts. With almost 2 million views, my sweet and sour chicken has been the top viewed recipe on my blog. So I decided to make the chicken the same as that chicken, but just add the peanut butter sauce instead of the sweet and sour sauce. I know most pad thai recipes do not have big chunks of chicken in them, but this one does. I will admit …

White Chocolate Golden Peanut Butter Balls

Well here is another Peanut Butter recipe but this time featuring “White Chocolate Wonderful.” I am not much of a chocolate girl. But if I had to choose I would almost always pick white chocolate over dark chocolate. And that is why I love this peanut butter and I love these peanut butter balls. I used “White Chocolate Wonderful” in my Homemade “No Bake” Clif Bars and will always have a jar of this stuff on hand. It is that good! I currently have 3 jars in my pantry….just saving it for a rainy day I guess! Grab a jar next time …

Salted Chocolate-Peanut Butter Bars

To prepare for Peanut Butter Week I spent hours and hours in the kitchen getting new recipes ready to feature.

So I called my husband and told him that I had made 2 different kinds of cookies and these bars and needed him and his co-wookers to become my taste testers for the day! He did not mind one bit and I got some good reviews back! Plus I didn’t …

Peanut Butter S’more Pancakes

  Before I get to the recipe for this amazing “fully loaded” breakfast let me tell ya a little about where I came up with these. I have a group of 7 girlfriends who love to get together.
