* The year is half way over.. How about some Peanut Butter?

This month will be 5 months that I have been having fun with the blog!! This has been a great outlet for me!! Some of the things I have posted on this blog I have made many times before and just wanted to share the recipe (such as the Chicken Parm, Mac and Cheese with Bacon, and the Chocolate chip cookies

Many are first time, lets see how this goes, hope I don't mess this up, recipes!! It has been extremely fun! I have never made a Chocolate Cake from scratch before! And I have never made Marshmallows or drank pure Watermelon Juice! This has been a blast! Thank you, to all of those who are reading and keeping up with my blog!! I Appreciate it and hope you learn something, be it a great recipe or how not to do something!!

I am going to share with you another how to...how to make peanut butter! Super Easy... if you don't screw up like I did! As I have stated before, and will probably state again.. I am not a professional, I do not think I am Giada or Mario.. I am just a girl who loves to cook and eat.. and I scew up from time to time. This, is one of those times. It really was a silly stupid mistake, but I did fix it..

Peanut Butter

Ingredients:
2 Cups Peanuts (Roasted)
1 1/2 Tsp Oil (Preferably peanut oil, but I used Vegetable and it was fine)
Salt (optional)
Honey (optional)

Directions:
If your peanuts are not already roasted.. Be sure to roast them (this was my downfall! We were cooking on the grill, and thought "hey, why not toss them on the grill and try to roast them". This did not work-I wound up with some burnt peanuts. Any sane person would pick through and toss out the burnt ones... But for whatever reason, I didn't. I think I must have thought they would all get mixed together anyways.. and there weren't a whole lot of burnt nuts...oops)
Toss your nuts in your food processor and let it go! After a little bit, go ahead and add the oil. Continue in the processor. Keep in mind, It will not be the creamy smooth texture of store bought peanut butter..at least mine wasn't.



That is what my finished product looked like. Yours should not be as dark, the reason of my dark peanut butter is because of my burnt peanuts :)
Add salt if you wish, I added honey to mine and was pleased with the outcome!!

That's it for today!! Hope everyone had a Happy 4th of July Weekend!!
I am curious.. What are some new things you have tried making?? Something you never thought you would make.. But did?!?!?!


Happy Eating Everyone!!

  2. That's a great idea! Then you don't have to deal with all of the extra ingredients that are bad for you that they put in the "creamy store bought stuff" :) great addition to the blog :)

  3. Thank you! I enjoyed making it (even if I did kind of burn the peanuts) this is something I want to "give another go". And, the honey added to it was tasty!
