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.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.
