Lunch Box Trail Mix

I’m a conservative when it comes to trail mix politics. I won’t go near one at the store if it has dried pineapples or brazil nuts; I would say that even pumpkin seeds are pushing it for me. The best trail mix is the simple kind you grew up with. This is a classic mix…

24 Hours of Peanuts {Giveaway}

A couple months ago I was lucky to be included in a project the National Peanut Board was making with various food bloggers. Just this month the 24/7 Energy Recipe Resource project has been printed and released and I got a few copies to flip through. The book is filled with peanut facts, ways to…

Candy Party Mix

This kind of treat has a lot of names. “Monster mix” and “Trash mix” come to mind; let’s call it a party mix since that sounds more elegant when you’re stuffing your face with candy at 8pm. After Halloween everyone’s always stuffed with more candy than they know what to do with. This is a…

White Chocolate Candy Corn Bark

Candy corn seems to be one of those foods that divides families. People either love it or they hate it. Personally, I’m addicted to it. Sometimes it tastes good; other times it tastes like nail polish remover. But I will always eat it. Still, candy corn on its own can be a bit much; I…

Peanut Butter Granola

Sometimes I get sick of food. Kale, potatoes, eggs—all things I usually love—just don’t seem as appetizing lately. There are a few foods I never get sick of like peanut butter, oats, and yogurt. When that’s all you want to eat, what’s better to do than make granola? This has been my go-to lunch as…

Copycat Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Larabars

When you’re a food blogger, you end up having some pretty weird “snacks”. Leftover cheesecake in the afternoon? Sure. Chocolate granola for lunch and dinner some times. Anything goes. That’s all great and delicious but there are times when I wish I ate a little bit healthier. Of course, the answer’s simple; if you want…

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Glad to know I’m not the only one who thinks peanut butter and baked beans are a delicious combination. But I forgot to mention the best part! If you leave a comment on the recipe page on Peanut Butter & Co.’s All Star Recipe Blog you’ll be entered to win a jar of their deliciously…

Elvis Granola

First granola bars, now granola; I’m on an oaty roll.  I’ve never been particularly fond of granola until I had Love Grown Foods’ cocoa granola last Summer. I didn’t realize something could be so chocolaty and also healthy. Every time I’ve made granola myself in the past it never clumped; this recipe clumps. The banana…

Banana Peanut Butter

I’ve always wanted to make a banana flavored peanut butter. It’s no secret bananas and peanut butter go well together. But one of the problems of a banana flavored peanut butter has always been that bananas just don’t last once you peel them. What you need is a shelf-stable banana—something like banana chips! This was…

Thai Deviled Eggs

Happy Memorial Day! Hopefully you’re all set to relax on the beach, but if you’re in need of a quick appetizer or beach snack this might fit your bill. I used to hate hard-boiled eggs(and by “used to” I mean about a year ago); the texture of the cooked yolks sort of freaked me out….
