Peanut Ginger Quinoa Salad

Peanut Ginger Quinoa Salad

I tried to come up with a snappy name for this post, but this salad has so many ingredients that it was difficult to decide which deserved to be front and centre.  Since the dressing is made with peanut butter and ginger, these flavours are in every bite.  And quinoa, well, I can’t hide the fact that we have been eating quite a bit of this grain, as you can see from previous posts.

Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies*

Cookies cooling on a cookie rack

*and Peanut Butter

I cannot be the only one that has more than a few bananas in their freezer.  You know what happens; you buy bananas with the best of intentions, and then, by the end of the week, you find you have a couple of bananas that are definitely over ripe sitting on your counter.  Maybe you have even encountered a fruit fly or two.  Seriously, where do these things come from!  So, you do what everyone else does, and throw the bananas in the freezer with thoughts of banana bread and muffins as you shut the freezer door.

Peanut Butter – Chocolate Duos

Cookies out of the oven

Last week I received my regular issue of What’s Cooking magazine from Kraft. I love this little mail-out. The recipes are usually quick and easy, and it is always fun to look at glossy food pictures to find inspiration.

This issue was no exception. I found a few recipes that I wanted to try, especially this cookie recipe. When I opened up the magazine to this recipe, I knew that I would be baking this weekend. I consider myself lucky that my colleagues enjoy Monday mornings when I bring my baking in to share 🙂

Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins

Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins

I have been pretty good with my food consumption lately. I have been trying to stick to a mostly Paleo diet, however, the urge to bake struck me like a ton of bricks. I could no longer ignore the desire inside of me to whip up a batch of muffins. There were two ways that this could have ended up, I could have looked for a healthy muffin, loaded with fruit and whole grains, but instead, I opted to make a decadent treat full of peanut butter and chocolaty goodness.

I went to the internet and typed in chocolate peanut butter muffin. The first one that appeared was the one that I decided to make. I was definitely on a mission. I wanted to bake, I wanted it to be chocolate and peanut butter and I wanted it now! 🙂

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This blog post could easily be only four words: “These cookies are amazing!” 🙂

Having only access to two cookbooks is really giving me a chance to scour through them to find new and interesting recipes. This experience has really opened up my eyes to the fact that I likely don’t give my current cookbook collection a chance, I look through and if I am not immediately impressed by a photo or a concept, I flip the page. But with only two books available to me (since the rest have been packed), I have to actually read the recipes to determine if the flavour combinations are something that I want to try. I can’t remember the last time that a month’s worth of my baking has all come from the same cookbook.

Connie Squares

I had mentioned before that Jamie and I are moving and my cookbook collection has been carefully packed away, so besides the internet, the recipes I have at my disposal are from two cookbooks. So here is another one from The Designing Women Plain & Simple Cookbook that Laura recently gave me.

As I was flipping through this book, I was surprised to see a recipe called “Connie Squares“. Well, of course I am going to share this with you, it is almost like destiny 🙂

Chocolate Peanut Butter Crackle Cookies

I don’t think that there is a more perfect flavour combination that chocolate and peanut butter. 🙂

I tasted my first crackle cookie last Christmas.  My friend, Kerri had brought them in as her contribution to our office cookie exchange.  I was hooked on my first bite, they are absolutely delicious.  They taste like a brownie – perfect!

Peanut Butter and Jam Chicken

In fulfilling my New Years Resolution, I grabbed a cookbook off the shelf in the search of a new chicken soup recipe.  As I was turning the pages PB&J Chicken caught my eye.  Did that just say what I think it did?  When I flipped back I was surprised and intrigued.  Peanut Butter and Jam Chicken?  Well, I like peanut butter, I like jam and I like chicken, so I had to see how this was going to turn out!

Peanut Butter Crumb Topping

I have to admit, I don’t always bake from scratch.  It’s not because I don’t want to but we don’t always have the time or all the ingredients needed on hand.  There are those times when you have to cook for a pot luck at work or for your child’s school bake sale, and weeknight baking takes up a lot of time after getting dinner to the table and lunches ready for the next day.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I am back with another baking entry.  I can’t help it, the heart wants what the heart wants 🙂

Jamie and I spent 6 hours in a car yesterday, and when we got home, I really wanted something sweet and salty.  Well, the best combination to satisfy that craving is made with Peanut Butter and Chocolate.
