Another one of my all time favorites! The thing I love most about the lawn and leaf bag, is that it collapses to almost flat which makes it very convenient to store when not in use! I also like that it is small enough for me to drag around the yard, especially when I’m cleaning up leaves
Homemade Peanut Butter Meltaways… My mouth is watering just thinking about these delicious PB cups! This is a great recipe to keep ingredients on hand for, for when you need a quick treat. Adding different kinds/colors of sprinkles can make them festive for any holiday. We choose rainbow nonpareils and Valenites Colors for V-Day!
You can never go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter!
They are super simple and quick to make. The longest part of the recipe is waiting for them to set up.
Place mini muffins liners on a large baking sheet.
Top With sprinkles if desired.
Homemade Peanut Butter Meltaways
Makes about 4 dozen
1 (12-ounce) package white chocolate chips 1 cup (6 ounces) dark chocolate chips (or semi-sweet) 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I use all natural peanut butter) 2 Tablespoons coconut oil 4 to 5 dozen mini muffin baking liners or candy cups (it doesn’t hurt to have a little extra!) Sprinkles (optional)
Combine first four ingredients into a sauce pan. Melt over low heat until well combined.
Arrange mini muffin baking liners on a shallow pan or tray.
Pour melted chocolate mixture into the mini liners, filing 1/2 full (I prefer mine thinner and only pour my liners 1/4th – 1/3rd full). Top with sprinkles if desired. Place the baking sheet with filled mini liners into your refrigerator and chill until set (about an hour). Keep refrigerated. Enjoy!
I like to pop mine out of their liners and store in ziploc bags; half in the fridge and half ing the freezer for later.

January 31st can be bleak. The world is asleep and plants are still dormant for the season. After a gentle snowfall I ventured outside to capture some of the beauty that winter offers. It got me thinking about the importance of planning and planting for the winter months.

Nine years ago we had just moved into our home and were right in the middle of HUGE renovation projects. One of my new neighbors (Marie,l from Or so she says) stopped by for a visit and the yummiest sugar cookies I had ever tasted! It was a recipe I knew I needed to add to my collection.
