Homemade Peanut Butter

Posted: May 31, 2013 in Cooking 101, Vegetarian

Add Peanut Butter to the things you should be making yourself at home. You can buy raw peanuts and roast them yourself, or you can purchase peanuts already roasted from a trusted source and skip the roasting, shelling, and de-skinning (this is what I do). Making peanut butter is as easy as it gets, takes less than 5 minutes, and the kiddos love helping, here’s how.

You will need some peanuts, peanut oil (make sure these are not genetically modified; mutant peanuts=mutant people), and a food processor or pretty sought blender.


  1. Place about a pound of peanuts in a food processor or blender, and start chopping them up.


  2. When the peanuts are pretty much into a really chunky thick paste drizzle about 1 1/2 tbsp of peanut oil into the machine while it is still running. I don’t measure any of these things I throw some peanuts in and slowly pour oil in until I get what I want, not rocket science.


  3. Add more or less oil to get the consistency you like.


  4. Add raw honey if you like, about 1 1/2 tsp.
  5. Put in an air tight container and refrigerate.

Toad in a Hole

Posted: January 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

This is one of my kids favorites, some call it eggs in a basket. We have fun with it by cutting the hole out with cookie cutters.
You’ll need eggs, bread, and some butter.
Next butter the bread, and cut the the hole out with the cookie cutter.
Throw the bread in the skillet, and crack the egg into the hole. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the egg begins to set up then turn, cook to liking. My kids like their eggs medium.
