Chocolate Peanut Butter Reigns Again, But This Time It's Cute

Wow, don't these look just like acorns? Yes, it's another recipe calling for both chocolate and peanut butter. I seem to have a fondness for those. These chocolate and peanut butter acorns were conceived by Six In The Suburbs. They are both easy and quick to make, and would make an excellent project for a parent to do with the kids. The recipe requires both regular Hershey's Kisses, and mini-chocolate chips, as well as bite-size NutterButter cookies. Apply a bit of microwaving and sticking together, and voila! Acorns!

Happiness: Technically a Salad, Not a Dessert!

Rebbeca Crump at Ezra Pound Cake says this strawberry pretzel salad "makes your TONGUE feel like it's made of GOLD!" The crust is made of crunched up pretzels. The topping boasts strawberries, strawberry jello and a secret ingredient -- crushed pineapple, to give it a little tang. In between the crust and the topping is a layer of creamy, cream-cheesy, whipped-creamy stuff that melts in your mouth like a good cheesecake should -- except that this is not a cheesecake, it's technically a salad, so you don't have to wait until dessert to eat it!

Beautiful Cucumber Salad a Breath of Fresh Vegetables

This is an amazingly simple but beautiful creation. Jaime at Sophistimom says she "threw [it] together" to go with sloppy joes! The cucumber ribbon salad looks artistic, doesn't it? The cucumbers are sliced with a vegetable peeler, and then tossed in a light mix of rice vinegar, mayonnaise and dill. Not as crunchy as a cucumber salad made with cross-cut cukes, it also provides a greater light/dark contrast when set on a plate than a traditional cuke salad. It's colorful appeal would make a visual splash on a plate that includes a dark meat.
