Tasty Tuesday: PB Crave

I like peanut butter. It's one of my favorite treats. So you can imagine my excitement when I find peanut butter companies that are doing something awesome with not only their product but with their funds as well. PB Crave is one of those excellent companies that does both! I was so excited when they gave me the opportunity to try their product so that I can tell you what I think about it.

 

First of all, it's all natural, sweetened with honey and there are four flavors to choose from, but honestly, how can you choose a favorite when they are all so tasty. Let me tell you what I like about each of them.

Razzle Dazzle is a great blend of raspberry flavor with dark and white chocolate chips. It's like dessert on a spoon for me. I hide it from the others because I don't really want to share it.


Cookie Nookie has a subtle cookie dough flavor, almost a rich vanilla. I used it in a recipe that I'll share at the end, it was good.


Coco Bananas has a distinct banana flavor. It's kind of reminds me of laffy taffy banana flavor. I think it would go really well in some pancakes or banana nut muffins.

Choco Choco is peanut butter with dark and milk chocolate. It's not overly chocolaty, just right. 

One of the things that I really like about all these is that even though they have chocolate and flavorings, they have less calories per serving than my store brand peanut butter! But here's the really great part about this peanut butter...

A minimum of 2% of the profits from every jar of PB Crave goes to Project Peanut Butter. Great tasting and helping out where they can. Right now, PB Crave is available by ordering through their website. And I just saw that they are running a limited time promotion for free shipping if you use the code PBLOVERS. And if you want to be able to find them in your local Walmart, hope over to Get On The Shelf and give them a vote!  

Alright, now that you've read through my love of PB Crave, here's my recipe for 

Reduced Carb Peanut Butter Bars

1 cup peanut butter (I used Cookie Nookie)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Fiber One, crushed
1 egg

Spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray. Mix all ingredients together. Spread in pan. I happened to make a cross hatch design with a fork. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes until cooked through. Let cool, slice into squares and enjoy.

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
