Peanut Butter Cookies with a Twist

What’s the twist with these peanut butter cookies? Candied ginger and hand-chopped super-dark chocolate chunks. Plus less sugar than most cookie recipes call for. This gives you a deliciously crisp, buttery peanut butter cookie with little surprises of sharp chewy ginger and morsels of the best chocolate ever. And they’re not too sweet. The cookies will be soft and chewy at first, but after totally cooling, they’ll be perfectly crispy/chewy. Lovely with a cup of Darjeeling tea or a glass of cold milk (or whatever milk-alternative you like.)

Mo’s Chai Spice Almonds

I adapted a recipe to make these *awesome* roasted almonds even more flavorful than they originally were. You have to try these. They really are easy. Easy. Easy. And so gratifying. Great for gifts, too. I’m going to make some with pecans next.

Maple Herb Roasted Walnuts

Try this quick (10 minutes) recipe for Maple-Herb Roasted Walnuts. They are crunchy and sweet-savory, kinda like candied nuts but more flavorful. You can use just about any kind of nut instead of walnuts: pecans, almonds, cashews or peanuts. We like to put these on our leafy salads. The walnuts are especially tasty on lettuce with crumbled gorgonzola cheese and a simple olive oil + lemon juice dressing

Peanut Butter Chocolate Smoothie

Want a super healthy, kid-friendly smoothie recipe that you can serve your kids for breakfast, lunch, snack or even a dessert? This Peanut Butter Chocolate non-dairy smoothie tastes like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, only better! I made this extra smoothie this week especially for Stephanie and her daughter, Kristina, at her request. I love that she is careful about her child’s nutrition, and remembers how delicious a healthy meal can be! You rock, Stephanie!
