Peanut Butter Cheese Ball You might have noticed by now that I sort of like peanut butter. I mean, it’s not an addiction or anything. I can totally stop eating it whenever I want. I’ve never wanted to stop eating it though. In fact, I had a spoonful of peanut butter for breakfast this morning. When I stumbled upon this little gem of a recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything, I knew that this cheeseball would soon be mine. So, uh, I made this cheeseball.

Lemon Blueberry Bread Recipe Lemon Blueberry Bread Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Butter (or spray with a non stick vegetable spray) the bottom and sides of a loaf pan (9 x 5 x 3 inch) (23 x 13 x 8 cm). In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and lemon zest. Remove 1 tablespoon of the flour mixture. Place the blueberries in a separate bowl and toss the berries with the 1 tablespoon flour (this will help prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the pan during baking.) In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until softened (about 1 minute). Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 55 to 65 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Lemon Glaze: In a small microwaveable bowl, stir the sugar with the lemon juice. When the bread is done, remove from oven and place on a wire rack. Makes 1 loaf.

Monkey Muffins Print Recipe Posted by Ree in All PW Recipes , Breakfast , Christmas , Tasty Kitchen Featured , Thanksgiving I made cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls over Thanksgiving weekend, and was left with a medium-sized bowl of extra dough. I don’t know how it happened, but it did. I was also left with another kind of roll—the kind that makes low-rise jeans a problem. I didn’t want to roll out cinnamon rolls again—I mean, how many thousands of cinnamon rolls can one woman make in a 48-hour period? I grabbed a muffin tin and wound up making sort of a modified muffin version of monkey bread—and everyone loved them. I put half a pat of butter (so, 1/2 teaspoon) into muffin tins. Then I put a little under a teaspoon of sugar into each tin. Did you read what I wrote? Next, I dumped in 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. Then I grabbed the leftover dough (it was cold in the fridge) and rolled three small (walnut-size) balls of dough. Then came about 1/3 teaspoon sugar, just to round things out. And that’s it!

The Best Ever Blueberry Muffins Last week a co-worker's husband called work and when I answered the phone he started raving about the muffins his wife had made the night before. He told me they were the best muffins she had ever made, which is saying a lot because she is a fabulous cook. Later in the day I asked her for the recipe and she quickly printed it for me.

Watch Me Do - Sweet things are my weakness and I LOVE puppy... Impossible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes Pumpkin pie is one of my favorite autumn treats and I make it often once the weather starts to get cool, but I also like to try and find new twists to put on it to keep it interesting. Pumpkin pie bars and chocolate pumpkin pie are some of my favorite variations. This year, I set out to put pumpkin pie in a cupcake form, something that could easily be eaten by hand but still had that custardy feel of a real pumpkin pie. Plus, it’s always nice to have another cupcake recipe around. This cupcake recipe is based on an impossible pie recipe. Impossible pie is a concept that is a popular “back of the box” recipe for baking mixes, like bisquick. The cupcakes will fall as they cool because of their slightly dense pumpkin pie center, so don’t worry as you seem the start to deflate after you take them out of the oven. Update: I’ve posted a video of this recipe, so you can see every step of the process! Preheat the oven to 350F. Makes 12
