100 Things to Do With Peanut Butter You most likely learned long ago that peanut butter ain’t only good for PB&J sandwiches. George Washington Carver’s greatest invention can in fact spruce up everything from drinks to desserts. Actually, we’d be hard-pressed to come up with a dish that wouldn’t be better with a little Skippy. Peanut butter chili, peanut butter broccoli, peanut butter ice cream and peanut butter cocktails — it all works. Folks, there is peanut butter tuna salad to be found on this list. No lie. Sincere apologies to those with allergies and all you non-Americans who just don’t get it. Click on the photos for full recipes.

Martha Stewart’s Snickerdoodles February 23rd, 2009 · 76 Comments I never really appreciated the Snickerdoodle as a kid because… hello? .. no chocolate. I was and still am a chocolate lover and if you put two cookies in front of me, one chocolate, one not, I’ll always go for chocolate. Last month, though, we were having people over for one of the football playoff games and I decided to make snickerdoodles, mostly just because I had the ingredients on hand. The recipe I made was from Martha Stewart’s Cookies , the book that I gave out as the cookie party grand prize and that I bought for myself. These cookies turned out fabulous and I’ve actually found myself craving snickerdoodles, a cookie without chocolate! Martha Stewart’s Snickerdoodlesmakes about 1 1/2 dozen 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp coarse salt 1 cups (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 large eggs - – - 2 tbsp sugar 2 tsp ground cinnamon Preheat oven to 350F.

Almond Crescent Cookies Recipe This week’s Christmas cookie is presented to you by guest author Garrett McCord. ~Elise When I was a child my parents hated me enough to put me into a table manners class called Ms. Etiquette. I learned to say please and thank you, how to identify nine types of forks, and all of it culminated in a High Tea final exam. The tea party was boring as heck, but there were these delicious little almond crescent cookies. Almond crescents are a very basic tea cookie recipe. Ingredients 1 cup of butter, room temperature2/3 cup of sugar1 teaspoon of vanilla extract1 teaspoon of almond extract2 1/2 cups of flour1 cup of almond flour (can substitute ground almonds*)1/4 cup of powdered sugar for sprinkling *You can use slivered, blanched almonds and grind them up, but you will have a very crumbly, hard to work with dough.

Creamy Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Summer has been so good to us this year. I'm trying desperately to hold on to any remainders of this wonderful season. I've already frozen tons of slices of peaches for a cold winter afternoon when I need a juicy peach cobbler. I'm now making my way through all the blackberries we have close to our house. Jam will be made, don't you worry. For now, because we've been enduring the craziest heat wave, the blackberries are turned into smoothies and other cold treats. Creamy Blackberry Frozen Yogurt(printable version) 3 cups fresh blackberries3 cups yogurt cheese (or Greek yogurt)1 can sweetened condensed milk ( 14 ounce can, it's fine if it's a bit more or a bit less)In a blender, puree the blackberries with the sweetened condensed milk.In a medium bowl mix the puree with the yogurt cheese.Pour the mixture in to your ice-cream maker and follow the manufacturer's directions.
A cookie by any other name... Mexican Wedding Cookies - Flourish - King Arthur Flour When the baking urge strikes (or the bake sale looms), and you tackle the delicious task of deciding what to make, certain recipes always swim to the top of your mind, don’t they? For me, it’s brownies for bake sales. Doughnut muffins for breakfast. My mom’s almond puff loaf for brunch. Blitz bread for a hurry-up dinner. These tried-and-true treats are imprinted in my mind with laser-like clarity – if not the recipe itself, at least the result. Other recipes occupy a middle layer in my brain, a kind of netherworld that’s equal parts vague childhood memory, and recipes torn from women’s magazines, mentally marked “I should make these sometime.” Mexican Wedding Cookies – or Russian Teacakes, or Mexican Teacakes, or Russian Wedding Cookies, or just plain Snowballs or Butterballs – are just such a recipe. These cookies were popular back in the day (“the day” being, for us Boomers, the ’50s and ’60s). And eliciting advice from my mother to avoid them: “You won’t like them. Very pretty!
Potato and Carrot Mash with Salmon | Recipes & Family Food It's hard to find jars of baby puree with oily fish like salmon, which is the best source of essential fatty acids that are vital for your baby's brain and visual development. A mashed potato and carrot mixed with a little milk, butter, and cheese makes a good base for a baby's meal. I prefer to mash the potato by hand, because pureeing it in a blender breaks down the natural starches, leaving a gooey texture. If mashed food is too lumpy for your baby, you could try using a baby food grinder or potato ricer to prepare this. This recipe was created for babies 6 to 9 months old and provides protein, omega-3s, calcium, iron, selenium, beta-carotene, and vitamins A and D.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs I have to admit that at the outset I was a tad skeptical of these. I'm not sure why, but I guess I really didn't expect them to be anything extraordinary. I found this recipe in a Rachael Ray magazine while I was waiting in line at the paint counter at Lowe's and thought my grandkids might like them. What I didn't expect was how much I was going to like them! They go together in no time, and are sort of a cross between a cheesy popover and a pizza in muffin form. So I served them to a couple of my grandkids (3 and 6) for lunch the other day and they were a hit. Then I began to realize that you could really make these with anything that you put on your favorite pizza…pepperoni is just the beginning. They’re fun, they’re good, they’re easy, and if you don't have any kids around, you'll get em all to yourself. Adapted from EverydayRachael Ray Preheat oven to 375o. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. *I used sliced, chopped Turkey pepperoni.
Whole Wheat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies What’s better than a cookie? A whole-wheat chewy chocolate chip cookie, of course! This cookie will become the star of any lunch box. My kids love “chewy” cookies. They prefer warm and chewy versus crunchy and dunking. While having a glass of milk and cookies can be satisfying and ritualistic, we rarely do that at our house. Whole-Wheat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe adapted from Alton Brown. Author: MOMables Cuisine: Baking Ingredients 2 sticks unsalted butter 2¼ cups whole-wheat flour 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 teaspoon baking soda ¼ cup granulated sugar 1¼ cups brown sugar 2 eggs 2 tablespoons milk 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips Instructions Melt the butter in a heavy-bottom medium saucepan over low heat. **Photo Credit Want MORE Ideas Like this one?
Avocado Fries Oh dear. I never should have done this. This may be one of my biggest mistakes all year. Can’t take it back now. So we’re totally enjoying our grilled avocados, but my husband innocently asks “What else can you do with avocados?” And so my daughter tweets this recipe, and I'm laying all the blame on them. Sigh…. At a buck fifty a pop (at least around here), avocados can easily run up quite a tab on the grocery bill. So, consider yourself warned.
