Is there anything worse than a peanut butter cookie that doesn’t taste very peanut butter-y? I’m constantly disappointed by PB cookies at bakeries. Far too often, they just lack that delicious nutty flavor. Well today’s recipe solves that problem completely! These flourless chocolate peanut butter cookies are so full of flavor! Apparently taking out flour and butter is the key to having the peanut butter flavor shine. And as an added bonus, the texture is so soft and chewy, almost exactly like a brownie. Plus, they are Gluten Free!

If TheBetterHalf had to choose a favorite dessert, it would be chocolate peanut butter ice cream.  Our freezer has a pint of chocolate peanut butter Haagen-Daz in it at all times. But up until recently, I had never been able to make him his favorite treat because I don’t have an ice cream maker! I just don’t have room to store it, so it is one appliance I’ve decided I don’t need. But then I discovered no-churn ice cream, and what a dangerous discovery it was.

No-Churn ice cream is so ridiculously easy to make! And you really only need two base ingredients – heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk. So I played around with this perfect no-churn base and came up with No-Churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream.

Did everyone have a good holiday weekend? It was nice to have a day off work but I must say, my weekend was not so great. TheBetterHalf and I were supposed to go visit my family in St. Louis. After an hour delay and 2 hours sitting on the plane at LaGuardia, AA canceled our flight! They were unable to re-book us, so we had to cancel our whole trip. Needless to say, I was not a happy camper.

So I made a cake to cheer myself up! Who wouldn’t smile at a nice, rich chocolate bundt cake!  Just smelling this in the oven made my weekend start to look up immediately.
