Whether you’re heading to a holiday party, or looking for things to put under the tree, this DIY maple peanut butter infused bourbon is a perfect gift for the whiskey connoisseur or budding mixologist in your life. DIY infusions can vary in the time it takes for flavors to develop, so give yourself at least four days before Christmas to start whipping up this gift. Your bourbon will taste great in a classic old fashioned, or something a little more adventurous. We like to mix it with Chambord […]

Irish soda bread is a classic St. Patrick’s Day treat, but the flavor can sometimes be a bit lackluster. So to amp up this old-fashioned recipe into something completely delectable, I knew exactly what it needed – Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter! By incorporating peanut butter chunks into a traditional soda bread dough, the result is a deliciously sweet loaf that has the authentic crumbly texture and malty taste of Irish soda bread, but with luscious swirls of dark chocolate peanut butter. So break out your Irish jig, and get baking! This bread is definitely worth dancing over.

When I think of holiday cookies, cut-outs always pop into my head first. My mom has been making regular cut-outs for as many Christmases as I can remember and they’ve always been a favorite. Maybe it’s the cut shapes or the pretty decorations; I don’t know, but there’s just something about this kind of cookie that is so festive.

Here I took cut-outs to the next level with a peanut butter makeover! These cookies are crispy outside, chewy inside, and bursting with peanut butter flavor. After eating them you might never want a regular cut-out cookie again (which is really saying a lot!). If you’ve never made cut-outs before, don’t worry because the dough is pretty easy to handle; I think once you see how painless they are to make, these might just become your go-to cookie.

Topped with a simple glaze and colorful sugar or sprinkles, these cookies are perfect for getting into a holiday mood!

Are you one of those people who makes turkey the same way every year? Maybe you swear by roasting it breast-down or deep frying it, or maybe you’re of the mindset that the cooking method doesn’t matter as long as the turkey was brined (side note: I highly recommend brining too!). Whether or not you change up the method that you use to cook your turkey, there is still the question of how you want to flavor it. You can stuff it, fill it with aromatics like lemon, onion, and carrot, season it under the skin, or give the outside a rubdown with herbed butter or oil. But this year why not try something new? This turkey brings something completely different to the table!

A savory blend of herbs, spices, and peanut butter brings a whole new level of flavor to this turkey. It’s a unique take on turkey, and the perfect way to spice up your holiday table.

If you ask most people to name one side dish that’s always present on their Thanksgiving dinner table, you’re likely to get one of three answers: potatoes, stuffing, or green bean casserole. There are plenty of ways to change up potatoes and stuffing, but that green bean casserole never seems to change much. Why not reinvent it and give it a fresh flavorful twist?

With a little inspiration from classic Thai flavors, this dish turns the old-fashioned version of green bean casserole on its head. Cream of mushroom soup is replaced with a flavorful creamy sauce made from coconut milk, peanut butter, tamari sauce (instead of soy sauce to keep this dish gluten-free), and fish sauce (just omit if you want to keep this dish vegan). Onion, garlic, and ginger up the flavor even more, and using fresh mushrooms and fresh green beans makes all the difference in the world. And don’t worry, even though I ditched the fried onions, I would never forego that wonderful crispy topping so I used toasted coconut flakes and salted peanuts. This dish is a little sweet, a little salty, full of flavor, but nicely balanced; and yup, it’s even better than the original!

Why not start a delicious new Thanksgiving tradition?

It’s Halloween time again and anyone with a sweet tooth is gearing up for basketfuls and armloads of sweet treats. This week, we have a nougat candy bar recipe that’s topped with a decadent chocolate drizzle. These homemade candy bars are sure to please Halloween night revelers! They’re also great for including in little goodie bags for friends and coworkers.

My very favorite holiday is without a doubt Christmas. I love it so much that it’s hard for me to wait till after Thanksgiving to start breaking out the Christmas music and Santa cookie cutters. I try, but I almost never make it! Especially living up here in the mountains where by Halloween it usually looks like Christmas Town!

One of my all-time favorite Christmas characters is Frosty the Snowman, everyone’s favorite loveable snowman! I really wanted to combine my love for Frosty and my love for all things peanut butter. Therefore, I used a family secret peanut butter coconut truffle ball as the base for these adorable Frosty’s. They are crazy easy to make and so delicious. I mean, peanut butter and coconut are a match made in peanut butter heaven, but there is also white chocolate involved! Bonus, people will not be able to get over how incredibly cute they are!
