Crunchy Thai Chicken Salad with Peanut Dressing

Avoid boredom and change up your salad routine with a sweet and spicy peanut dressing, crunchy peanuts and chow mein noodles. 

Crunchy Thai Chicken Salad with Peanut Dressing 1

With my new kitchen still not fully situated, baking has been thwarted. But that may be a good thing until I can get back into my regular gym routine. Yes I am still slacking on the decision as to which gym to join. I think it is partly due to knowing that gyms always get crazy busy in January and if I wait a little longer maybe it’ll die down. In the mean time, I’ve started jumping on the healthier eating train (to balance out those Taco Bell trips). To satisfy the sudden onset of a Thai craving I made this salad full of chicken, carrots, red bell pepper, peanuts, and chow mein noodles. Then top it off with a sweet yet spicy peanut dressing.

Cone Head Cupcakes with Ice Cream Frosting 1

National Cupcake Day is exactly one week from today! In an effort to prepare you, 26 food bloggers including myself have banded together to share cupcake recipes today. I took the opportunity to whip up a cupcake creation that I have been meaning to make ever since I thought of it.

Cone Head Cupcakes with Ice Cream Frosting 3

You know the adorable cone head ice cream sundae at Friendly’s? Well I recreated it in cupcake form! A vanilla cupcake is topped with a literal scoop if buttercream frosting made with ice cream and decorated with a chocolate dipped waffle cone, miniature Reese’s pieces, and whipped cream. Even if you’ve never heard of or had a cone head ice cream sundae, you won’t be able to resist these little guys.

Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter Oatmeal

How do you like your warm oatmeal on a cold morning? How about apples, cinnamon, raisins, and peanut butter? Dig into this bowl and maybe even drizzle some chocolate on top.

Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter Oatmeal 1

After the first successful variation of my dad’s apple harvest oatmeal turned into pumpkin pecan oatmeal I decided to try my hand at it again. Being Saturday I am sure you can guess specifically what flavor I went for… peanut butter of course! But the chocolate part of today’s Peanut Butter and Chocolate Saturday get’s benched for cinnamon and raisin. I used cinnamon raisin peanut butter for this oatmeal because I thought it would be the perfect peanut butter flavor for such a recipe. Turns out it says right on the jar that it is perfect for oatmeal, which I noticed mid-way through cooking it! Funny how things work out.

Alright I did let chocolate play a little bit with a drizzle of chocolate syrup on top. Ohio State plays Minnesota at noon today so I had to throw on at least a little chocolate to officially call it another successful #PBChocSat!

Homemade Peanut Butter Goo Goo Clusters

You favorite Nashville candy can now be made at home. These peanut butter goo goo clusters taste like buckeye truffles with crunchy peanuts.

Homemade Peanut Butter Goo Goo Clusters

If you lived in or near Nashville, TN you have heard of Goo Goo Clusters. The traditional one is made with marshmallow, caramel, and peanuts which is covered in milk chocolate. As delicious as that sounds, being a smart company they also made a peanut butter version which of course wins my heart every time.

I’m not sure how they make their peanut butter Goo Goo Cluster but I used my buckeye candy recipe as the basis for this one. Peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar, and graham cracker crumbs come together to make the peanut butter discs which then have peanuts pressed into them before being dunked in milk chocolate. Simple as that!

Talk about some last call happy hour snacking. If you are feeling daring there are recipes for making your own margarine and worcestershire sauce (recipes included at the bottom) but I just stuck with the store-bought stuff.
