Recipe: Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Posted December 15, 2017 by Fizzy Pop in Recipe, Sweet Treats / 1 Comment

Growing up peanut butter was a staple in my diet.  I LOVED it on pretty much anything, or in anything, or just by itself.  Allergies back in the dark ages of my youth were not common so there was no ban on peanut butter at school, bells the PB sandwiches from school lunch carry fond memories.  They were different and not something I’ve ever recreated.  However, my love affair with peanut butter came to an end in my late teens/early adult years. When I ate it I became so very very sick.  Miserably sick.  Apparently I was allergic to the nectar of yummy and just didn’t become sympotamic until after years of exposure.  The Minions?  They love peanut butter almost as much as I did at their ages.  Sometimes, if I’m feeling nice (OK and they aren’t being toadnuggets) I’ll make a batch of cookies from my Grandma’s recipe.  Today, I thought I’d share that recipe with you.

Grandma's Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies will take you to a time spent in grandma's kitchen. Creamy peanut butter goodness, baked to a golden perfection.

RECIPE: Broccoli Cheese Soup

RECIPE: Broccoli Cheese Soup

Posted November 10, 2017 by Fizzy Pop in Recipe / 1 Comment

Once again this is a Fizzified recipe when means there’s really no measurements to work with. Cook as much as you need to make the servings you want at the consistency you want.  I like mine a bit thicker with a LOT of cheese so I’ll use less liquid and more cheese.  Stir and taste, that’s how it works in my kitchen.

RECIPE: Zucchini Fritters

RECIPE: Zucchini Fritters

Another Fizzy original.  Odds are that all of us are familiar, in some way, with friend zucchini.  Restaurants serve it as sticks, fries, rounds, etc.  Growing up I did something a little different.  It had to be different because all the zucchini in the house had been shredded already for zucchini bread.  And frozen.  But I wanted zucchini.  So this little masterpiece was born and remains a favorite.Ingredients: 1/2 Cup zucchini, shreddedOnion powderGarlic powderSaltBaking Mix1 eggshredded cheese, your preferenceoil for fryingDirections:Mix everything together but the oil. If you batter is too thick add a little milk to thin it.  Think pancake batter consistency.  Meanwhile in a frying pan heat your oil.  Spoon or pour the batter into the pan in separate ‘patties’.  When bottom is cooked turn over and cook the other side. Continue, draining on a paper towel, until all batter is cooked.  Mom likes them with ketchup.  I […]

RECIPE: Fudgey Chocolate Chunk Brownies

RECIPE: Fudgey Chocolate Chunk Brownies

By the time this recipe goes live weeks will have passed, never mind that.  It’s a Munchkin weekend but he’s off to see a movie for a couple of hours and I’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth coming on.  Nothing drastic but still a small craving is building.  Brownies maybe?  I’ve not made brownies in eons.  Off to Pinterest I went to find something new, different, brownie-ish.  And I found these at Something Swanky.  I had to give them a try.  Never mind that it’s closing in on bedtime.  Never mind that the last thing I need to is indulge in brownies, or anything so rich, that close to bedtime.  I had to make them!  And I did.  And they were delectable, the perfect rich ooey-gooey yumminess that soothed my sweet tooth and made a happy Munchkin when he came in (just as they were coming from the […]

RECIPE: Banana Bread

RECIPE: Banana Bread

It’s kids week on the blog which means another treat from one of the Minions of Mayhem.  Goobie was supposed to get his turn this month but alas, he’s still in California visiting with the grandparents.  I was in a panicked bind when a few other things worked out to my advantage so I simply switched him and Munch around.  With Munch doing all the book reviews this week as well I feel like it should be called Munch instead of Kids Week. We talked bout options and then chose to dip into my Grandma’s recipe collection.  Let me tell ya, Grandma Atkins was quite the cook, but especially quite the baker.  I’ve been promising the Minions banana bread for a while, and have a freezer full just waiting to be utilized when Munch decided it had to happen.  This week.  So that’s what we did, or should I say […]
