Delicious. Try not to eat every last piece

I just learned it it National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day. I freaking LOVE peanut butter. Here is one of my favorite ways to eat it.

Peanut Butter Popcorn!!

4 cups popped popcorn
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup peanuts
cup smooth peanut butter

Heat oven to 310 *.Heat sugar and syrup on medium until boiling. Boil for about 4 minutes then add peanut butterand peanuts. Stir until smooth. Spread popcorn on cookie sheet and pour sauce over corn. Stir and bake on 310 for ten minutes. Stir with a rubber spatula half way through.



Lemon Blueberry Cake

Last Sunday my good friend Val brought me a huge amount of fresh blueberries. I had just returned from a road trip and really wasn’t feeling up to doing more than chilling with my dogs on the couch with a nice bowl. Of ice-cream.

All week I added handfulls of blueberries to my yogurt, pancakes and waffles for breakfast. It never put a dent in the supply. So Friday I tossed back a couple of Percs (for the hands) and got to work.


2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup of vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 pkg cream cheese room temp
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I make my own)
1 box of instant pudding lemon or vanilla flavor
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 Cups of fresh blueberries

Mix dry ingredients in your mixer bowl; make a well in the center and add the eggs, oil, cream cheese and lemon juice.
Beat for four minutes then add the blueberries. Mix well.

Heat oven at 350*
Plop the batter into a greased bundt pan OR make muffins. Either would be amazing! Bake the CAKE for about an hour…just watch it. A toothpick test works well…just make sure the CAKE doesn’t stick. I didn’t make muffins but those take about 12-15 minutes. The blueberries will stick, always, until they are jerky so keep an eye on it. Dry cake sucks.

Easy and delicious

Fresh blueberries and lemons with a fresh lemon glaze

In a grand attempt at making a mark in the Universe I am starting a blog about food. I enjoy many different styles and types of food. I rarely bake as I am disabled (yes) and my hands just won’t allow much in the way of kneading and rolling. One may notice I like spice, rather, HEAT in my food. I don’t doubt the omission of this element will make much difference in the flavor. So all of you “Super Tasters” out there feel free to leave it out. I am not excited about the actual “log” part of this blog so bear with me. Grammar Nazis please go easy. College was a long time ago. I will do what I do best and that’s throwing down on the stove.
