Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cupcakes

Share

If you are a fan of Funny Bones, these cupcakes are for you. The chocolate cake recipe is amazing, as is the peanut butter filling. They taste just like Drake’s Funny Bones without the chocolate coating on the outside, and with a much better chocolate cake. Funny Bones were my favorite of the Drakes cakes […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Share

If you’re a fan of chocolate and peanut butter cups, these cookies are for you! They’re very easy to make – as easy as making chocolate chip cookies. I bought a container of mini peanut butter cups from Trader Joe’s and they were exactly the right size for this recipe. We all loved these cookies. […]

Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Salted Peanut Butter Filling

Share

Do you remember Funny Bones? I’m probably dating myself here because I never see them in stores anymore, but they were one of my favorite treats growing up. They’re a chocolate cake, filled with a sweet peanut butter cream and dipped in chocolate. If I had one today, I’d probably think it tasted terribly artificial, […]

Peanut Butter Blossoms

My mother used to make these cookies for us when I was growing up and I loved them. They were a holiday tradition. My parents had a big Christmas party every year and a big plate of these was always on the dessert table. My own boys love these too. Well, actually, 3 out of […]

Tomato Peanut Soup

Share

 

When I worked downtown, I would often grab lunch at Hale and Hearty Soup, a place that offered about 10 different kinds of soup each day. My favorite was the Senegalese Peanut soup. It was a vegetable soup with a kick of cayenne that tasted strongly of peanuts. It also had some chicken in it. […]

Peanut Butter Cup Blondies

I succumbed to a bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup eggs at an after Easter sale (my all-time favorite candy).  They were 50% off and I did an unfortunate thing by walking into the store hungry.   Once I got them home, I didn’t want to eat them all straight out of the bag (which I […]

Soft Chocolate Cookies with Peanut Butter Frosting

Share

If you’re a fan of Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, you’ll like these cookies.  They don’t taste exactly like the candy, but the mix of chocolate cookie with peanut butter frosting makes them similar and delicious.   This cookie is dense, yet soft and one is a perfect sweet to end a meal.   Sometimes I’ll eat two […]

Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin with Peanut Sauce

Share

We had lots of guests (primarily my family) over Labor Day weekend, and on Saturday night we had a huge crowd for dinner.   Some of my sister’s friends were in Greenport, so they joined us.   We were 12 children and 14 adults.   I was looking for something that was nice enough for company, but easy […]

Bouchon Bakery's 'Nutter Butter' Cookies

Share

I was thrilled to find this recipe (I originally found it on another blog that I read) because I have a container of Costco organic peanut butter that my finicky, peanut-butter-sandwich-eating son doesn’t like.   Granted, it’s not as sweet as Skippy, but it’s pretty tasty.  I’ll definitely be making more of these cookies and some […]

Chinese Chicken Salad

Share

As I’ve mentioned before, I love recipes by Ina Garten and this one is no exception. It’s a very different take on chicken salad. The dressing has a nice Asian flavor. I have made the salad a couple of times now, and this last time I used hot chili sesame […]
