What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…

Temptation Tuesdays

Did you know that November is National Peanut Butter Month?! I just found out and man am I excited. Not only can I continue with my pumpkin obsession (it’s still the harvest season and of course there’s Thanksgiving to think about), but I can also indulge my love for peanuts/peanut butter. You’ll probably notice an uptick in peanut butter related recipes in my “Tempting Tidbits” section – just a warning.

As you know, this past week I’m on holiday (vacation – call it what you like. I’m away from home and the day-to-day) and so things have been a little different around here. There have been a couple of guest posts (yay) along with some other things I’ve been meaning to share with you.

Foodie posts this week on Doctorate Housewife:

No real foodie posts of mine this week, though there was this awesome guest post about cookies and this one about kitchen tips. It’s been a couple of weeks of fitness and healthy-living goals, so instead of the normal section, here are some of my favourite peanut butter related recipes that I’ve blogged.

Peanut Speculoos Caramel Butter: yeah, this is as crazy as it sounds!

Peanut butter truffle blondie bottomed cupcakes: an over-the-top treat for the peanut butter lover in all of us

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple Ice Cream: 2 ingredient ice cream with a boost. Very easy, very worth a try!

Bakemasters Does PB & Chocolate: This post has a round up of fun things Bakemasters did to celebrate this awesome combination.

Most viewed edible entry (post about food):

Hello Kitty Caramel Cake with White Chocolate Frosting (for the seventh week in a row! – though if my analytics are correct it’s because of the stencil. Turns out its good for pumpkin carving too =p)

Tempting tidbits from other blogs:

Peanuts & Cracker Jack Cupcakes (Cupcakes & Kale Chips): Welcome to National Peanut Butter Month. These cupcakes have a peanut butter filling and a salted caramel topping. Can you say “over the top”? I can’t wait to try them!

(Just one this week – that’s all I managed to finish before we took off on the jet plane. We get home today and I’m looking forward to checking out my super full google reader!!)
