My husband knows when I am going to cook something extravagant when I grab my favorite cooking accessory – my apron.
I love aprons and just like everything thing that I own, it resembles me. My apron is simple yet elegant with the right amount of flare. Not to boring, not to wild – just right. But to tell you the truth, I usually wear this on most occasions when I cook just to protect my clothes. You see – I cook messy.
Whether it’s baking cookies, stirring a pot of soup or handcrafting lasagna, I seem to splash, splatter and dust my way through. I guess I have too much fun! And really, there is no harm to that at all.
I wanted to do a quick product review on some nut butter I have been eating lately. The brand is Justin’s. They do a variety of organic nut butters including peanut, almond and hazelnut. I found his stand at my local natural food store, Central market, and right away I was hooked. They come in individual squeeze packets for easy storing and traveling. When I am out and about I can toss one in my bag and have it with crackers or fruit. I must admit that I have only tried one flavor – the cinnamon peanut butter. Anything that has cinnamon in it I love, and this is no exception! It’s creamy and the cinnamon flavor is just enough to say “Here I am!”. I don’t particularly like the fact that it has added sugar in the ingredient list so I I try not to eat this on a regular basis, but it’s a treat when I have oatmeal and apples for breakfast; like this morning.
A sliced honeycrisp, cinnamon peanut butter, quick cooking oats with dried cranberries and a splash of maple syrup. Filling, simple – it hit the spot!
