Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Cake

This perfectly chewy peanut butter cookie cake is a crowd pleaser. With chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups and chocolate frosting how could it not be?

It’s finally here! The first game of the Ohio State Buckeyes football season. I cannot help but be excited even though we are missing our star QB. After all, teams are made of more than one person. However the game I am most interested in today is Wisconsin vs LSU. Go Big 10! But since I don’t find badgers to be an appetizing dessert, I decided to stick with the buckeye peanut butter and chocolate theme. Which means today is the first PB+Choc Saturday of the season!

Regardless of your allegiances you can still enjoy a peanut butter and chocolate dessert. This cookie cake is a peanut butter and chocolate lover’s dream. Peanut butter cookie dough with chopped Reese’s cups, and topped with chocolate frosting. And it happens to be perfectly chewy which is how all cookie-things should be, in my opinion.

In other news, I am off to Gatlinburg this weekend with Bob, Christina, and Dave whom are in town visiting! I scouted out all the free/random things to do this weekend and it may contain things such as hiking, BYOB/lawn chair blues/rock/folk concerts, fireworks, salt and pepper shaker museum, hillbilly golf, and maybe some outlet shopping.

Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

These chewy cookies are for all the chocolate and peanut butter lovers out there, with a double dose of peanut butter in the dough and the peanut butter chips.

Today is a repeat food holiday – National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. It first occurred on May 15th and apparently has more than one day in the year. But I was skeptical of the food calendar which I follow and upon googling it seems as though the one on May 15th is actually just “chocolate chip day”. Guess today is the real chocolate chip day, but regardless of which date is the “official” holiday you don’t need an excuse to enjoy some chocolate chips by themselves or even in a cookie. Or in this case peanut butter chips encased by chocolate-peanut butter cookie dough. And yes this is yet another successful creation based on my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookies which means they too will rock the socks off of your taste buds, if in fact they wore socks.

Creamy Peanut Chicken with Rice

This creamy peanut chicken packs a lot of flavor into a quick and east weeknight meal. Serve it over rice and you’re ready to dig in.

Coolest thing that happened over the weekend? My team and I won Harry Potter trivia on Saturday night! With 21 teams, we were convinced we would be trailing after missing 4 of 32 questions in the first half. As we listened to them counting down the top 15 teams we began to get worried as they neared the top 5 and we had not yet heard out team name – could we really have been worse than #15? 5 – not us, 4 – still not us, 3 – could we really be in the top two? 2 – yet again not us. Low and behold we were rocking the #1 spot! Tension rose for the second half as we fought to retain our throne of nerddom and despite missing a few more questions we the reigning champions in the end. To make it even sweeter we won half of money collected to participate ($5/person) which amounted to $200 or $50/person. Who knew Harry potter knowledge could earn money? We proceeded to bar hop around the Knoxville Market Square-area to celebrate.

Coolest thing that you should cook this week? This creamy peanut chicken made with coconut milk, peanut butter and just a little kick thanks to some garlic-chili paste. Lots of flavor for a quick weeknight meal.

Crispy Peanut Tofu & Cauliflower Fried Rice

Skip the rice and go meatless with this vegetarian cauliflower fried rice topped with crispy tofu and a peanut-soy sauce. With all that flavor you won’t notice that it’s not real rice!

Crispy Peanut Tofu & Cauliflower Fried Rice 1

What a crazy World Cup game yesterday! I had my bets on Germany but was expecting a close game, as I am sure most people were. After the 4th goal I was completely at a loss for words. By the 6th goal I stopped paying close attention and was attending to other things, therefore missing the final two goals making it a 7-1 win for Germany. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a score that high ever in soccer, even when playing on my own club teams growing up. What a sad way for the hosting country to be booted out of the race. At least they get to play in the third-place game. On the up side, I’m even more impressed with the USA team keeping Germany to one goal in our game!

But moving on to this stir fry. After seeing a couple recipes for cauliflower rice I was sold. All I needed was to get my hands on some cauliflower, and after my broccoli/cauliflower/cabbage U-picking adventure that mission was completed. The texture of the cauliflower may not exactly resemble rice but it was close enough that neither myself nor my dad were overly aware of the substitution. As for the tofu, it was so sufficiently drained and dried that it sucked up all the flavors from the peanut-soy sauce, resulting in some of the best tofu I’ve ever had. If you’re been looking for a super-vegged out meatless meal, I highly recommend trying this.

Gluten-Free Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Cookies

My favorite gluten-free peanut butter cookies with traditional criss cross pattern and topped with salted caramel glaze. Indulge your sweet tooth!

Gluten-Free Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Cookies 1

Not only is today the start of the FIFA World Cup, it is also National Peanut Butter Cookie Day! This gluten-free peanut butter cookie recipe is my favorite because it only requires 5 ingredients and results in perfectly chewy cookies. I enjoy it so much that I’ve used it for other cookies such as Salted Nutella Peanut Butter Thumbprint CookiesFlourless Buckeye Blossom Cookies, and Peanut Butter Birthday Bites. Today’s version gets a traditional criss cross stamp and then a drizzle of salted caramel. Rich and definitely sweet enough to satisfy the demands of your sweet tooth.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Parfait

If you love pb+j then you’ll love this parfait. Peanut butter yogurt is layered with strawberry jam, fresh strawberries, and peanut butter granola. Prefect for breakfast or a light dessert.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Parfait 1

After 4 awesome days of BBQ-festing it’s time for me to return to Knoxville. Memphis is especially fun in May and I couldn’t have picked a better weekend for which to return. I may need to detox with spinach smoothies and salads however, but in the meantime lets talk about parfaits.

Despite my love for all things peanut butter, it took me a long time to get on board with peanut butter and jelly things beyond the sandwich. For some reason it did not appeal in dessert form but that all changed when I had the peanut butter and jelly candy bar from Trader Joe’s. Then when I got my hands on the KIND peanut butter granola I decided it was time to make a peanut butter and jelly parfait! With all the fresh strawberries I’ve had on hand after picking them on three separate occasions it was an easy decision to incorporate them and the freshly homemade strawberry jam my dad and I made.

This recipe is written for one since it is Single Serving Sunday, but it’s incredibly easy to multiply for more servings. As you can see I ended up making two.

Peanut Butter Birthday Bites

Funfettinutter is the combination of funfetti and peanut butter. If you have not tried it, you are missing out! Chewy peanut butter cookies are topped with funfetti frosting, chocolate ganache, chopped peanut butter cups and sprinkles!

Peanut Butter Birthday Bites 1

Happy birthday to me!!! Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday TO ME!!!

In case you didn’t notice today is my birthday (it also happens to be Amy’s birthday of Fearless Homemaker). I turn 29 today today which means the next 365 days are the last of my twenties. For my birthday weekend my friend Christina visited and during all of our hiking and adventuring we have relived memories from our college years – our early twenties. It seemed perfect that she would be with me to celebrate the end of my twenties after being a partner-in-crime throughout all the others and I couldn’t be more excited and happy for her to be here this weekend. Later today we are seeing Spamalot!

In honor of my birthday I yet again combined two of my favorite things – peanut butter and funfetti. Chewy peanut butter cookies are topped off with a funfetti cake batter frosting which is then adorned with chocolate ganache and chopped mini Reese’s peanut butter cups. And more sprinkles. If you think peanut butter and funfetti don’t belong together then you obviously have never tried it. Funfettinutter for the win! It may be not a single serving recipe for Sunday, but it’s my birthday and I can have all the servings I want.

P.S. It is also Star Wars Day – may the fourth be with you! Oh yea that’s right be jealous of my birthday.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chess Pie

Chess pie gets a whole new look with a chocolate cookie crust, peanut butter filling, and chocolate chips. Peanut butter & chocolate lovers will rejoice!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chess Pie 1

Today marks a special day. No it’s not my blogiversary nor is it my birthday (but it will be in just over 1 week). Today is my 1000th post! The last time I celebrated a post # mile marker it was for post #100 – Stuffed Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies. Here we are 900 posts later and you’d think I would have lined up something extra spectacular to celebrate. Unfortunately I did not plan ahead by contacting my favorite products/companies to host a giveaway and alas I did not possess the fundage to provide it myself. So you know what you’re going to get? A pie straight to the face!

Yes I am going to hit you in the face with a pie and you’re going to like it. And by that I mean I’m going to show you the pictures and recipe for this pie and you will be so intensely drawn in that before you realize what’s going on, your face is pressed against the computer screen attempting to devour it. How do I know this? Because (assuming you love PB+Choc) it’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chess Pie!

Chess pie doesn’t have to be “just pie” (derived from Southerners’ dialect: it’s jes’ pie). I already proved that by making a meyer lemon version but decided to take it a step further by using a chocolate cookie crust, throwing peanut butter into the filling, and sprinkling chocolate chips all over the place. Evidently there was room for more sugar. Happy 1000th, I’ll see you next time.

Single Serving White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treat

Get your rice krispies treat fix with this single serving recipe. Make it your own with your preferred nut-butter and mix ins. I chose white chocolate peanut butter and peanut butter cups!

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Rice Krispies Treat 1

How many of you have already dug into the Easter candy? The holiday-shaped Reese’s are always my weakness, with their superior peanut butter to chocolate ratios. Just when I thought the temptation could not get any stronger, Reese’s coated these beautiful creations with white chocolate. There’s nothing I love more than PB+Choc than PB+WChoc, which lead to the birth of this rice krispies treat with a double dose of PB+WChoc. And it’s all mine!

Whip up this single serving white chocolate peanut butter rice krispie treat with a hidden white chocolate Reese’s cup in the middle and you will be the happiest person around, assuming you also love PB+WChoc – if not change it up to your preferences! It just might cause you to forget all about your imploded March Madness bracket. (Although I did win in both groups I entered upon Florida’s loss, despite Wisconsin’s loss whom I picked to win it all.)
