Honey Roasted Peanut Butter

Honey Roasted Peanut Butter

Hold onto your hats, people. Because this week is going to be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious-ly exciting!

What could possibly be so exciting that it warrants a Mary Poppins reference?

Oh, I don’t know… just this:

peanutbutterweek

That’s right! It’s Peanut Butter Week on this blog!

I don’t care that National Peanut Butter Day is January 24, and Peanut Butter Lover’s Month is in November. This week – the first week of September – is going to be Peanut Butter Week.

So, what will Peanut Butter Week involve? Well, a whole lot of peanut butter, of course!

  • Every recipe will involve peanut butter
  • I’ll be posting a few more recipes than usual

(Sorry to everyone who follows the blog via email – you may end up with a few more items in your inboxes this week!)

And if anyone with a peanut allergy is still reading this, there are a few alternatives to peanut butter – almond butter, hazelnut butter (or Nutella!) and walnut butter are all delicious. On Instagram, @consciousnonblonde suggested sunflower seed butter as a close substitute (but I can’t personally recommend it as I’ve never tried it).

Fun Fact: Peanuts are actually legumes, not nuts!

Strawberries and Vanilla Overnight Oats

Strawberry & Vanilla Overnight Oats

I don’t know about you, but I’m a total sucker for sales. Especially when it comes to food sales. Case in point: The grocery store I buy most of my yummy produce from has clearly been suffering from over-supply of strawberries. For weeks and weeks I’ve been taking them up on their “Four boxes for $10″ special, even when…

Funfetti Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt

Funfetti Cookie Dough ‘Frogurt’

*Fingers Crossed* I hope I haven’t missed the boat on frozen yogurt. It’s still popular, right? You never know with food trends. Remember when cupcakes were all the rage? And then we spent years speculating about what would be “the next cupcake”? Whoopie pies, macarons, doughnuts… what could possibly be as outrageously popular as cupcakes?…

Zucchini and Pumpkin Mini Frittatas

Zucchini and Pumpkin Mini Frittatas

Woah. Woah, people. I didn’t think the day would ever come, but here it is: I’ve posted a breakfast recipe based on eggs. It seems odd for a breakfast blog to have no frittatas, scrambled eggs, sunny-side up eggs, boiled eggs… or any of the other million types of eggs. But, as I mentioned in my Not-So-FAQ page,…

Peanut Butter, Apple and Pretzel Oatmeal

Peanut Butter, Apple and Pretzel Oatmeal

Whoa, how have I not had a recipe involving pretzels on this blog!? I don’t know about you, but I love pretzels. Doesn’t matter if they’re the soft and doughy kind or the hard and crunchy variety – I just love them. You know what I also love? Salty-sweet combinations, peanut butter, apples and oatmeal. So…

Zucchini Bread Pancakes

Zucchini Bread Pancakes

Before I talk about these pancakes (which are fluffy and flavorsome and oh-so-delicious), I have an announcement to make. A terrifying, horrifying announcement: I am old. How did I discover my apparent elderliness? It started a few weeks ago when a twelve-year-old assured me that “life is over by twenty-five.” What?! I thought fifty was the new forty…

Gluten Free Bread Rounds (Vegan)

Gluten-Free Bread Rounds (Vegan)

Ok, don’t get too excited – these are not cookies. I know, they seriously look like giant cookies. But they’re not. Before you feel deflated and say “aww”, let me assure you that this recipe is very, very exciting. For me anyway. It’s exciting because it’s gluten-free bread. Let me correct that sentence: It’s exciting…

Apricot and Almond Muesli

Apricot and Almond Muesli

I think we all have those morning when you wake up and just feel too darn lazy to cook anything. It doesn’t matter how much you may love pancakes, the very thought of standing next to the stove carefully flipping each precious circle of batter just makes you want to fall asleep. Even if that…

Pumpkin Pie (No Cream!)

Pumpkin Pie (There’s No Cream!)

Before anyone asks: No, I haven’t lost my calendar and woke up thinking its November. And my guess is that you haven’t fallen into a time machine and emerged three months into the future. But realistically, I can’t be 100% certain that you’re not a time traveler. So why am I making a pumpkin pie…

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Ok, who doesn’t like banana bread? It’s sweet and moist and delicious and oh-so-banana-y! Plus, banana bread is just so friendly. It doesn’t need frosting or electric beaters or any of that jazz. And I’m sure we’ve all heard of cakes that fall – but falling banana bread? Much less common. Then there’s the absolute best…

Polenta Scramble (Gluten-Free and Vegan)

Polenta Scramble (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

I have nothing against tofu. Pan-fried, baked, blended into desserts – it’s all good. Tofu and I are definitely friends. But tofu scrambles? Pass. I’ve tried my fair share of tofu scramble recipes, and they’ve all ended up tasting like garlic-y or cumin-y mush. Maybe one day I’ll become a tofu scramble person, but – for now,…
