If you love chocolate and peanut butter, and especially if you love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, don't say that I didn't warn you!
We had a special birthday to celebrate this weekend, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake is a favorite! I think of this as the "ultimate" peanut butter cheesecake. Starting with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreo Cookie crust, layered with a rich and smooth peanut butter cheesecake filling, topped with a luscious chocolate ganache, and finally sprinkled with chopped roasted peanuts and Reese's Peanut Butter Cup chunks, this is one that you just need to take one bite of to experience. And fall in love with!
Summer can never get here fast enough for us! With all the fun of camping, boating, picnics and backyard grilling and deck parties, it's our favorite time of the year!
And with Memorial Day being the official kick-off of all things summer, it's time to get out our favorite summer time recipes, get the grills ready to go, and get the party started. The forecast is for a long, hot and sunny weekend. Our little town has an old-fashioned Memorial Day Parade, and there will be plenty of time for chilling in the shade with a tall cool glass of homemade Old-Fashioned Lemonade, or making s'mores over some glowing campfire coals after the sun sets.
After we had four HUGE trees fall on our house last November, repairs are finally being finished, which means that we can get the patio furniture out, get the deck organized and finally plant the garden. So many things to do, but it's all good! And these summertime favorites will be ready for everyone to enjoy throughout the long weekend.
