As a self-admitted PB junkie, I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge this nutty spread. I like the healthy all-natural versions but I have a special spot in my heart and stomach for the cheap and cheerful brands too. There are health benefits (high in potassium, a great source of protein, full of the "good fats") but I like how it tastes and for some reason, peanut butter just makes me happy. Maybe it's nostalgia, gleeful memories from my childhood peeling back the foil seal on a fresh jar revealing the smooth top with a peanut on top.
I love it in a basic PB & J sandwich, in baked goods, in sauces, with chocolate, and as a topping on just about anything. I eat peanut butter on rice cakes just about every day. I think Peanut Butter goes with just about everything and in most cases makes things better. Please enjoy some Peanut Butter porn!
