Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

12.13.13 by Jackie

The girls and I have been baking up a storm this holiday season. Here's the recipe for their favorite cookie from this week’s concoctions. We made them without flour, butter or white sugar. The only requirement is the use of a generous amount of peanut butter, brown sugar and a few Christmasy-colored chocolate chips. The result was super gooey, soft and pillowy cookies.

The girls suggested we bake as many varieties of cookies as possible until Christmas Day. I can already tell what my New Year’s resolution is going to be!

Peanut Butter Cookies with Marshmallow Peanut Crumb Topping Recipe

This week, I had the pleasure of spending the entire day with my husband's 9-year-old nephew. Baby Aria found the cutest nickname for him: "Hashee". He loves to bake, so we spent the day in the kitchen.

First, we came up with a game plan. Hashee loves peanut butter, so we baked peanut butter cookies. We topped them with melty marshmallows and covered them with peanut crumb topping.

I’m planning on baking a lot for the July 4th celebrations. What kinds of cookies/pies/tarts/ do you enjoy most during this holiday?

Shirataki Yam Noodles: Noodle Salad Recipe (+ Giveaway) Recipe

Similar to tofu, shirataki noodles can look and taste pretty bland on their own. When I received the package from AsianFoodGrocer.com, I knew I had to enhance the flavor with a sauce. I made a peanut salad dressing that I've used often to flavor tofu, but this time I made it with oyster sauce, miso paste and hot sauce. I added colors to the noodle salad with red bell pepper, pickled garlic, cilantro and green onions. I topped the salad with crushed nori, for a briny flavor and  also sesame seeds and crushed peanuts for texture. We eat with our eyes first, and I think the dark color of the bowl serves as a very attractive contrast to the noodles.

The noodles themselves are very healthy (almost no calories, gluten and cholesterol free). So if you're looking for a light meal, this recipe might be it!
