Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whoever came up with the combination of chocolate and peanut butter needs to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.  This is one of those classic flavor combinations that is truly all-American and very popular with the generations. In fact, I think that it is one of my favorites.  It's hard to beat a peanut butter cup during Easter and Halloween.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

For those of us who can't get enough of that favored duo, this recipe is for you. The cookie is tender, light, sweet, full of that peanut butter flavor we all love in a cookie, plus it has the added bonus of chocolate chips.  What could be better?


Take a moment to click on the printable recipe below.  Go over the ingredients and locate them in your pantry, and start baking.  This is the kind of recipe that is easily done on a lazy weekend morning or afternoon.  If your kids can partake of peanuts, make sure that you keep plenty of these in the cookie jar.  Everyone is going to want them.

When the cookies come out of the oven they are puffy and just the right size. Upon cooling, though, the cookies do settle and get those wonderful cracks and crevices.  Don't be tempted to move them until they have firmed up after cooling on racks.

Back when I used to have more time on my hands for blogging, I used to write down recipes that I thought would be good to share here.  I'm glad I never threw away this particular recipe because it is a keeper.  

If you have small jadeite plates, make sure that you use them to eat one or two of these cookies.  I don't know what it is but everything tastes better on old Fire King jadeite from the 40s and 50s.

This cookie is meant to be eaten and enjoyed whenever you have the craving for peanut butter and chocolate.  If you want, you can certainly use chunky peanut butter in place of the smooth variety.  For the chocolate chips, I go between Ghirardelli and NestlĂ© semisweet chocolate chips, but use whichever your family prefers.


Get baking!

Antique Salt Cellars

There was a time when salt cellars played an important role on the dining table for the host or hostess.  As a result of it being such an expensive commodity several hundred years ago, salt was seen as a luxury and it was the well to do that made salt cellars quite fashionable & a status symbol for the home.  A single salt cellar usually sat at the head of the table and was passed around throughout the meal.  The closer one sat to the salt cellar, the more important one was deemed by the head of the household.  Smaller cellars that were more accessible and with an open top became a part of Victorian table settings.  Fast forward to the 20th century when salt was no longer a luxury and when anti caking agents were added to make salt free-flowing, and one begins to see salt cellars fall out of fashion.  Luckily for the collector and for those of us who like to set a table with Good Things , this can prove to be a boon. Salt cellars for the table come in silver, porcelain, cut glass

Collecting Jadeite

With its origins dating back to the 1930s, jadeite glassware began its mass production through the McKee Glass Co. in Pennsylvania. Their introduction of the Skokie green & Jade kitchenware lines ushered in our fascination with this jade color.  Glassmakers catered jadeite to the American public as an inexpensive alternative to earthenware soon after the Depression, both for the home and for its use in restaurants.  The Jeanette Glass Company and Anchor Hocking introduced their own patterns and styles, which for many collectors, produced some of the most sought after pieces.  Companies marketed this beautiful glass under the monikers of jadite , jadeite , jade glass , jad-ite , jade-ite , so however you want to spell it, let it draw you in for a closer look.  If you want a thorough history of the origins of jadeite, collectors’ pricing, patterns & shapes (don’t forget the reproductions in 2000), I highly suggest picking up the book by Joe Keller & David Ross called, Jadei

A Tour of Turkey Hill with Martha Stewart and Friends

Martha Stewart led an intimate tour of her former Westport, Connecticut home and gardens for a few of my friends this past weekend.  From the photographs I've seen of that special day, it was an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime by those who were in attendance.  As much as I regret not going to this momentous occasion, my friends were kind enough to allow me to share their amazing photographs here on the blog. Let's take a tour of Turkey Hill with Martha Stewart and a few of my friends. Without the kindness of Jeffrey Reed, Dennis Landon, Darrin David, Anthony Picozzi and Colin Eastland, this post would not be possible.  It must also be stated that the fundraising event was graciously hosted by the current owners of Turkey Hill, the Bergs. Many thanks to the Berg family for opening up the property. Turkey Hill is the Federal style home that was purchased, renovated and landscaped by Martha Stewart and her then husband, Andy, back in 1970.  It was he
