Hi friends! I feel like I’ve been¬†such¬†a slacker lately with getting new posts up, due to a combination of circumstances. I’ve been doing a Whole30, I had a¬†big¬†project I was working on that took up a lot of my time (and stress), and I had an incident last week where I knocked my head on the corner of my nightstand, got a big old bump and bruise, and I’m pretty sure I concussed myself.

I was feeling a little off for a few days after that last one, and didn’t get done any of the work I expected to be done.¬†I’m so sorry!¬†But I’m back with new recipes coming at you this week, and I’m¬†very¬†excited about this one. [Read more…]

When I started making this tart, it was going to be something else entirely. An almond-crusted tart, with chocolate and berries. Alas, I made a last minute switch to peanuts in the crust, and after tasting the peanut butter-y deliciousness, that idea was scrapped and this one was born, being built as I went.

Oh¬†man,¬†what an amazing creation it turned out to be! This is peanut butter & jelly at it’s finest – and perfect for these warmer days, since there’s NO baking required. [Read more…]

Have you ever had those super thick, Reese’s-like peanut butter bars, with a thin layer of chocolate on top? They’re super rich and SUPER chocolatey, with loads of peanut butter – the way I always dreamed of a Reese’s being.

They’re usually made with butter, peanut butter, and graham cracker crumbs…usually powdered sugar too. Definitely not a health food, but holy cow. They’re so good. I used to make them all the time back in high school, always to rave reviews and big smiley faces.
