Jif Peanut Butter Blossoms

One of the cookies that my children request most are the Jif Peanut Butter Blossoms.
We always have Jif Peanut Butter in the house so it is easy to whip up a batch in no time. I love the cookies with the chocolate pieces on top but my daughter prefers them without. When I took Marketing in college I did a blind taste test of peanut butters and Jif won the test. We have been diehard Jif users ever since.

    • 1/2 cup Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening
    • 1/2 cup Jif® Creamy Peanut Butter
    • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 large egg
    • 2 tablespoons milk, I use lactose-free and it works fine
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • Sugar
    • 48 foil-wrapped milk chocolate pieces, unwrapped

HEAT oven to 375°F.
CREAM together shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar and 1/2 cup sugar.

ADD egg, milk and vanilla.

BEAT well.

STIR together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture.  

BEAT on low speed until stiff dough forms.

SHAPE into 1-inch balls.

ROLL in sugar.

PLACE 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

BAKE 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

TOP each cookie immediately with an unwrapped chocolate piece, pressing down firmly so that cookie cracks around edge.

IF you wish to not add the chocolate press down on the cookie with a fork to spread it out.

REMOVE from cookie sheets to cool.

These goodies do not last long in my house! It is also hard to keep them away from my dog because he also loves his peanut butter!

    Quick Leftover Peppersteak

    As a single mom you have to stretch the almighty dollar pretty far. There are usually only two of us in the house so we usually have leftovers in the fridge. You cannot find a roast beef in the store that will only feed two people! I hate to waste the extras by throwing them out so I love to re-use them in new quick meals in no time. My daughter loves it when I whip together this particular quick meal! I hope you enjoy it too!

    1 lb. roast beef cut into strips
    1 - 1 1/2 cups of leftover beef gravy
    1 medium bell pepper, cut into strips, color doesn't matter
    1/2 medium onion, sliced
    1 tbsp. minced garlic
    1 tbsp. butter
    soy sauce, to taste
    microwave instant rice, flavor of your choice

    Sauté onions and peppers in melted butter until onions are semi-transparent but still firm.
    Add garlic to pan and mix in.

    Sauté all vegetables until heated.

    Add beef to mixture.

    Stir beef mixture to heat.

    Add leftover gravy.

    Add soy sauce to taste.

    Taste mixture to ensure quality. Sorry it's blurry!

    Heat entire mixture.

    Serve over heated rice. I hope you enjoy this quick meal as much as we do!

    Starting A New Vlog! Come Along!

    Considering that I rarely have time to sit down and type up blog entries I decided to start a video blog as well as a regular blog. I follow so many vlogs (Grav3yard Girl, LeighAnnSays, AConMann and many more) and some of them are so basic I say to myself when I watch I can do that!! My teenage daughter thinks I am insane but what else is new? She was still willing to be my camera woman for two haul videos (coming soon!) And her boyfriend can't wait to see what I come up with. We will talking about TV, Movies, Music, Food, Beauty, Activities, Family, Mental Health and much more!
