Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie

I love getting requests for recipes because more often than not, it takes me outside my comfort zone and into ideas I would've never had myself. This peanut butter banana cream pie is just such a recipe request. I often make my No-Bake Banana Cream Pie or these Deep Dish Peanut Butter Cheesecakes Brownies, (which are a spin off peanut ...

Day 7 in Iceland Hiking Kristinartindar Peak

We last left off the night of Day 6 having finally found a place to sleep. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate with our plans to make dinner, so we just went to sleep instead.

But they quickly took on a life of their own, so I made some space in the recipe calendar, so they could be their own recipe. Part of my job as a recipe developer is to make sure everything tastes the ... Read More

Chocolate Raspberry Cream Candy Cups

This recipe was inspired by a couple of things. The first one is Tyler's love of the classic chocolate raspberry combination, and the second is peanut butter cups of all things. Of course we both love peanut butter cups, (and you can find my homemade recipe in my Inspired Ice Creams e-book). But I wanted to use their shape as ... Read More
