I remember the first time I saw a Monte Cristo on a menu. I was feeling completely grown-up and oh-so-worldly eating at a fancy café downtown with a friend. Where we had driven our 16-year-old selves.
Anyway, the name of the dish caught my eye and as I read through the description I was curious…and captivated.
Always a fan of the savory/salty/sweet combo, I ordered it. (more…)

When autumn rolls around, there are little things more comforting than a flavorful, hearty bowl of soup. This one is thick and rich, but also veggie-laden with olive oil-roasted cauliflower, onion, and garlic as the base. (more…)

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but did you realize that summer is more than half over?
That happened fast.
Did you have a summer bucket list of things you wanted to get done?
I’ve been slowly crossing little things off of mine. (more…)

With Mother’s Day just a few days away, you might have your brunch menu all set…but if you’re still looking for the perfect addition, these scones are it! They bring the whimsy of a nostalgic pb&j sandwich, but the elegance of a scone. It’s a fun combo, one that is sure to be a winner with everyone.
You can check out the full recipe for my PB&J Scone Sandwiches with Brie on the Peanut Butter & Co. Recipe Blog. There’s also the chance to win a jar of Smooth Operator Peanut Butter, Rip-Roaring Raspberry Preserves, and a can of Honey Roasted Peanuts, the Peanut Butter & Co. products used in this recipe!

One of my favorite family traditions is every winter we snowbird down to Florida for a couple weeks of vacation. We are Disney fanatics, the whole lot of us (well, maybe aside from Mike, who claims that he goes for my sake…but when we’re there he seems to be enjoying the food and merriment for his own sake as well, lol), so the bulk of our time gets spent there. (Last year I posted about the afternoon tea we had at The Grand Floridian.)
We have a few favorite places where we always eat in each Disney theme park; at Hollywood Studios one of our favorites is 50’s Prime Time Café. They serve classic American comfort food (think pot roast, meatloaf, fried chicken, and chicken pot pie) in a 50’s atmosphere. To further add to the ambiance, the waitress has you call her “Mom” and scolds you if you put your elbows on the table or if you don’t finish your veggies.
We didn’t end up going to Florida this year, so our Disney time was out; I was recently craving a really thick, old-fashioned milkshake like what they serve there. There are two flavors in particular that I’m really crazy about: chocolate peanut butter cup and peanut butter and jelly. Peanut butter is definitely the common denominator. (more…)

With chilly air and crisp, frost-bitten mornings, ‘tis the season for a hot, comforting start to your day. Porridge is perfect and sometimes it’s fun to think beyond your traditional oatmeal. I’ve experimented with different things like millet, bulgur, and quinoa, and now I can add couscous to the list. This warming dish is the perfect fix for a cold morning.

Peanut butter is a fantastic addition to savory recipes like chicken satay (or chicken satay stew) and noodle dishes (like these peanut-y noodles). These savory little bites are along those lines – full of flavor with peanut butter, turkey bacon, and leek. If you’re looking for a fun, unique appetizer, this recipe is perfect. For the full recipe, check out my post on Peanut Butter & Co.’s All-Star Recipe Blog. (There’s also the chance to win a jar of Old Fashioned Smooth, the peanut butter used in this recipe!)
