“Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.”
Charlie Brown

"Ants on a Log" made with homemade Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter (inspired by The Peanut Butter Company’s cookbook).

Making peanut butter for me has dated back to that illustrious day in 659A Somerville Ave, with a food processor, ton of peanuts and a best friend named Bradford.

This batch, with a bit of a hand from Melissa and her tastebuds came out really well.

Here’s the peanut butter recipe for anyone interested in trying it out:


Yields: 1 cup of smooth peanut butter

* 2 cups of unsalted dry roasted peanuts
* 1 teaspoon of peanut oil
* pinch of finely ground sea salt

* Place the peanuts in a food processor and pulse until the peanuts form a paste. Add half of the oil and continue pulsing for another minute. Continue to add oil and pulse the food processor until the peanut butter is smooth enough for your personal taste.

* Transfer the peanut butter to a bowl add half of the salt and stir the peanut butter well. Take a taste and add more salt if necessary.

* Store the peanut butter in a covered glass or plastic container in a cool, dry place.

You also try these add-ons to the recipe above:

Crunchy peanut butter: Follow the recipe above, but grind just 1 and 1/2 cup of the initial peanuts. Chop the reserved 1/2 cup and mix it in after you’ve ground the rest of the peanut butter.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter: To 1 cup of smooth peanut butter (see above) add 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 raisins. Taste and add more sugar/cinnamon as needed.


What are healthy snack and dinner ideas that have TASTE?

Question by : What are healthy snack and dinner ideas that have TASTE?
I’m trying to lose tone up for summer next year, and need to change my diet slightly, i have a poached on toast, for breakfast or dinner, and fruit and oatcakes for snacks and salads etc.

But food often becomes plain and boring which i feel will spoil my healthy eating as il want something with more flavor and more satisfying like a pizza or chocolate.

Any food ideas, that are cheap but tasty?

Well you can try switching to organic milk for breakfast, there is no taste difference whatsoever. I like to eat fruit and cereal as a snack. For breakfast you can try a healthy cereal but mix it with a tiny bit of sugar cereal or a fruit. Lunch you can try eating a healthier sandwich( whole wheat bread has a lot of protein which is good for muscle building, lettuce, tomato, and a healthier meat like tuna or turkey. some kind of white meat and not red meat. For dinner you can just eat something that you make youself that is high is vegetables and grains and low on meat. Dinner is good for loadnig up on calories and carbs to help you get through your next day. Also eat dinner earlier so when you go to bed you are not full. I head sleeping on a full stomache is not good for you and your metabolism

How do I make my chicken moist, juicy, delicious, and most importantly, taste like real chicken?

Question by Instantpainrelief2008: How do I make my chicken moist, juicy, delicious, and most importantly, taste like real chicken?
The natural flavor of chicken is in the skin. However, skin is high in fat and I am on a low fat diet. If I cook chicken without the skin, the meat would taste bland. If I cook chicken with the skin on, the fat in the skin would get soaked into the meat. What should I do? I much prefer chicken’s natural flavor rather than some commercial flavorings.

When Viva showed up in November, I went out and bought a bag of Purina Kitten Chow, and that’s what she ate during her pregnancy.

Recently, Purina’s ONE Healthy Kitten Formula has been on sale, so I bought a bag of that: it’s first ingredient is chicken, rather than the chicken by-product meal which is the first ingredient in the Kitten Chow.

Viva prefers the ONE food to the Kitten Chow, so that’s what we plan to feed her and the kittens from now on. The ONE also has smaller bits, which will probably be easier for the kittens to start eating.

Lucky Jack has already tried licking a plate of his mother’s wet cat food, and today I saw Zippy tentatively lapping up water from the water bowl. We’ll see how Viva & the kittens do with weaning and eating (and the litter box) in the next few weeks.
