Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Peanut butter and jelly….spread’em out. Whenever I hear those words, it takes me back to my days of cheerleading camp. I even find myself saying at my cheer practices now. Today’s recipe is part of the Fantastical Food Fight blogging group. Each month we’re given a theme – it could be an ingredient or a specific recipe. This month’s theme was Peanut Butter and Jelly. I was planning to make burgers with a PB&J twist, but life got in the way. This was my back-up plan.

My husband loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and I knew these bars would be a hit! Now if I can just stay away from the container of them that’s taunting me every time I go into the kitchen. I did sneak a little taste when I was cutting them up and they’re full of peanut butter and jelly deliciousness. They have peanut butter shortbread crust, gooey jelly filling and then a crumbly top with honey-roasted peanuts. YUM!!

BLT Deviled Eggs

I joined a new blogging group called The¬†Fantastical Food Fight¬†and I’m excited to share my first post, but first a little about the food fight. Each month, we decide on a theme – it could be as simple as an ingredient or a specific type of food. Then all the participants share their recipe on the same day! Fun, right?! This month’s theme was deviled eggs. I’ve been eating a lot of hard-boiled eggs for breakfast lately…still trying to do the low carb thing (it’s not going well), so I knew I could whip something up with what I had on hand in the kitchen. I had all the ingredients to make BLTs…so why not combine them? It was amazing and we all inhaled them with dinner the other night.

So you want to know something crazy, after blogging for 7 years, I have never made traditional deviled eggs! I’m really shocked, but I definitely will be experimenting more and I can’t wait to see what all my fellow bloggers share in the blog hop below!
