My Family Can’t Get Enough of These Peanut Butter Bars!

I don’t know what your favorite candy is– but in my household, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Butterfingers are quite popular (especially among the adults here). So when I found this recipe for Peanut Butter Bars— I was in heaven!! This recipe is no bake, simple, quick AND tastes just like Reese’s Peanut Butter cups! YUMMO!

How can you go wrong with peanut butter (I prefer Skippy), powdered sugar, and graham cracker? Now, I am not a chocolate fan ( *gasp* I know, right? How can I even say I’m female?!?! ) and I tolerate it in this recipe. I often just give my husband the chocolate part and eat the inside (and yes– this is how I eat the butter cups too). I think in my next iteration of this, I will make it with WHITE CHOCOLATE– which I do happen to love <3<3

When you cut the bars, it’s best to use one of those slicers like the one in the picture above– cleaner slices. 🙂

Crock Pot Teriyaki Chicken

I found this teriyaki chicken recipe that looked absolutely delicious on pinterest. It was a pretty tantalizing recipe for me because it:

  1. was a crock pot recipe
  2. crock pot = little hassle
  3. it called for chicken thighs–> a very cheap cut of meat
  4. and the picture from Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen was gorgeous

So…with good intentions, I made the recipe.  When I made it, it didn’t taste so good.  My problem though, was that I didn’t follow the timing. I couldn’t start and stop the crock pot with just a 4 hour window because I decided to make it during a week night.  Plus, I figured that it was a crock pot recipe…it wouldn’t hurt to let it cook a little longer (I thought it would just make the chicken more tender).  Long story short– it tasted good but the chicken was a little rubbery because I cooked it for too long.

The sauce was delish, though. I recommend trying it and sticking exactly to the timing directions…
