Peanut Butter Happiness


One thing I cannot resist is peanut butter. Those who knows me know how much I heart peanut butter. Peanut butter is my best friend and my ultimate weakness. What's not to love. There's something nostalgic about peanut butter. Is the perfect comfort food and for some reason it always brings back happy memories from my childhood. Seriously, there is nothing better like eating a peanut butter, honey and banana sandwich with a glass of cold milk on a hot summer day.  This is the perfect combination of sweetness, gooeyness, and creamy blend. It's perfection for the palate. Did you know that bluebirds love peanut butter and generally do not eat seeds. See peanut butter makes everyone happy including bluebirds. So lets celebrate happiness by eating peanut butter and tell us what’s your favorite way to eat it. Need some recipes to get inspired? Why not try one of the recipes below. Trust me they will blow your mind away.
