  1. Holiday Cookie Demo: Peanut Butter Blossoms

    December 3, 2012 by Holly

    I absolutely hate public speaking. It's truly painful for me. With that in mind, I have the good fortune of participating in a company-wide Toastmasters' club. I know, it doesn't make sense, but wait, doesn't it? What's the best way to get over your fear or loathing of something? Do it all the time? Apparently. It just so happens that my nearly year of lunch time speaking (with friends) offered me the opportunity to give a speech last week. And with the Christmas season upon us, I couldn't ignore Read more [...]

  2. Frozen PB Chocolate Banana Bites

    July 31, 2012 by Holly

    I know I've told you about my addiction to Pinterest before. Well today, we're going to talk about my older sister's unhealthy obsession with Pinterest. Okay, not really, but I think it's safe to say that Pinterest comes up in conversation nearly every time we see each other. Did you see my pin? Did you try that recipe? Did you see that I repinned the pin you repinned from so and so? It goes on and on. We're enthralling, I know. BUT with this unhealthy obsession, we've definitely come across some Read more [...]

  3. Peanut Butter Choconut Bars

    July 26, 2012 by Holly

    Any baking addict, by nature, is also a Pinterest addict. They go hand in hand. I’ve never found a website that can literally envelop hours of my life and never lose my attention. I rarely come across a recipe I don’t like and Pinterest might as well be my baking kryptonite. Whenever I get on the site, I usually walk away with at least a dozen recipes I HAVE to make.  I swear, all this working out I'm doing is immediately ruined as soon as I get on Pinterest. (Sugar is the achilles heel of my Read more [...]

  4. Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal-to-Go

    July 24, 2012 by Holly

    If you haven’t figured it out yet, I love peanut butter. I am constantly finding ridiculous reasons to indulge in it. Oh I haven’t had enough protein today? I need peanut butter. I’m depressed. Peanut butter will make it better. The dog looks hungry. I better give her a spoonful of peanut butter.  Man I got WAY too much, I’ll just take a little off the top and give her the rest. (And these are some of the mild excuses). Just a few weekends ago, I found myself hauled up on the couch with Read more [...]

  5. Peanut Butter Banana Bread

    February 16, 2012 by Holly

    I'm in a living nightmare. A nightmare known as calorie counting. Anything I even THINK about eating is googled for calories before I even reach for it. Anyone who has ever done this knows exactly what I'm talking about. On Valentine's Day I had a moment of weakness and considered eating a Hershey kiss, only to discover each kiss contains TWENTY-TWO calories. I'm not wasting 22 hard-earned calories on a piece of chocolate that I'll taste for thirty seconds. This gig is a vicious cycle and I don't Read more [...]

  6. Peanut Butter Cup Ball

    February 14, 2012 by Holly

    As a woman, I feel like it is impossible not to have a small obsession with anything and everything that combines chocolate and peanut butter. I like the two parts individually, but the taste of them together is sheer bliss. Knowing what you know now (maybe more than you wanted to know) you wouldn't be surprised to know that I pin, dog ear, email and scribble down every recipe I come across that combines these two treats. So when the idea for a peanut butter ball fell across my lap, I was useless Read more [...]
