Kalyn's Kitchen®
I don't know if anyone notices the schedule on the blog like I do, but I've had a couple of unplanned days off from both my blogs due to a bout with food poisoning that was definitely not fun.

So there hasn't been much cooking or blogging going on around here and I'm still not totally up to par, but it's nice to be back! I don't feel much like cooking yet, so I thought I'd share some of my Favorite Asparagus Recipes; some of these are things I make over and over every year, hope you enjoy!

Give me your peanut butter recipes. I love peanut butter, preferring creamy over chunky... but it doesn't really matter. I'm pretty sure I love peanut butter now as much as I ever did when I was a kid. What are some of your favorite ways to eat peanut butter and/or use it in other recipes? I've eaten peanut butter in just about every sandwich concoction I can think of... including PB&J of course, PB and mayo, PB and bologne (another kid thing), the Elvis, PB and applesauce. A friend puts it on a hamburger, although I've never tried it. I love creamy PB with a cored and quartered Gala apple.

Last year, in The New York Times–actually, TWO years ago in The New York Times (the article was published November 8, 2006!
