Sometimes, when you're hungry, you want the finest caviar on toast points with French champagne, coq au vin, truffled potatoes, and a cherry flambee. Other times, you want a peanut butter sandwich.
I'm having a peanut butter kind of day today. It seems to come over me the day after I work out (ran a mile yesterday on the treadmill, thank you very much), and no doubt has to do with the need for a simple protein and some comfort food. A plain peanut butter sandwich with a glass of milk - can you go wrong?
I did a search for peanut butter and came across PeanutButterLovers.com.* If you ever wanted to learn how to make peanut butter at home in your blender or food processor, or were looking for new ways to use peanut butter, this is the place.
Thought the peanut is not technically a nut (it's a legume), many of their recipes should work for almonds, or hazelnuts or other oily nuts.
I wonder if the type of peanut butter you like reflects on your personality. Me? I'm a natural, oily, chunk kind of guy.
