A fan that a friend brought back from Japan for me.
About this Cook
When I'm not in the kitchen, I also like to hang out with friends, shoot pool, arts & crafts, read, and lots of other stuff!
My favorite things to cook
I love Thai food! Of course it never turns out the same as it does in the restaurant, but I'm working on it! :) It's also hard because a lot of the ingredients I can't find around here, so I have to substitute which of course alters the flavor. But I'm having fun which is all that matters!
My cooking triumphs
Nothing remarkable yet!
My cooking tragedies
Nothing serious. I usually just end up burning the food, just like my mother, lol.

Decadent Peanut Butter Pie
I have made this for Thanksgiving for the last two years. I skip the chocolate, add coarsely chopped peanut butter cups on the bottom and top, and use fresh whipped cream. Delicious!

I have made this twice now and I love it. I add garlic powder to the dough in addition to the minced garlic and garlic salt to the butter (I like a lot of garlic). I grill them on a flat cast iron pan & they get all these wonderful bubbles that brown. The house smells amazing & I usually eat two or three while they are cooking (quality assurance!). I cut my dough into 16 servings, as I like my slices to be bigger. Wonderful!

Smooth and Creamy Peanut Butter Pie
I used 8 oz cream cheese as recommended by other users. The cream cheese flavor is prominent, so keep that in mind if you choose to use 8 oz. I added sugar to taste; I used about 3/4 cup. I whipped my own cream (I don't care for Cool Whip). I whipped extra and used that to top the pie. I crushed peanut butter cups for the bottom of the pie and chopped more for the top. I threw it in the freezer for a quick set. It was pretty darn good. Using fresh home made whipped cream really put it over the top. I'll make this again, but plan on tweaking it to make it even better.
