Homemade Peanut Butter

Homemade Peanut Butter
Once you make peanut butter at home, it will be very difficult to get excited about storebought peanut butter ever again. Not that eating peanut butter of any kind would ever be a chore because I love it so, but homemade peanut butter is a delicacy. And a nearly effortless delicacy at that. It’s akin to savoring a piece of high-end dark chocolate that’s rich and pure, uncomplicated by fillers, additives, or ingredients that have no place being in chocolate; and then grabbing a milk chocolate bar in the checkout line at the grocery store, which is likely a combination of tasteless, grainy, and waxy. Apples and oranges. Store-bought peanut butter versus homemade. Once you have something amazing, it’s hard to get excited about any less than. That’s this peanut butter. Sure, all peanut butter is good, and some is better than others, but this is in its own league. It’s similar in taste to store-bought varieties of “natural” peanut butter.

Cake Batter Ice Cream Going back to yesterday… I want to clarify something in: Tips for Food Bloggers . It’s not that anyone else said anything, but when I re-read the post, I felt like one of my messages was unclear. In no way did I mean to suggest you have to fit your blog into a certain theme! A Gold Medal-Worthy Grilled Cheese Grilled cheese is my jam. When I was younger, my dad would make my sister and me a grilled cheese sandwich every day after our morning swim practice. It was basically the best treat in the world. Stuffed with Colby jack cheese and buttered to perfection, my dad would slice it in half on a diagonal, rather than a boring down-the-middle cut, and we would gobble it up with big smiles on our faces. But those were my picky eater days. Now I stuff my grilled cheese sandwiches with lots of fun ingredients.
