My best friend is throwing a brunch baby shower for her DIL in May.  I know it's far away, but she's already looking to me for ideas and of course, a big part of helping with the food.  I figured we'd have the usual muffins, cinnamon rolls etc, but need ideas on something that maybe… MORE

Fiber One(R) Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks
These are delicious, quick & easy to make and a good source of fiber. I use regular peanut butter, not reduced fat. Sometimes if I'm in a hurry I just line a cookie sheet with waxed or parchment paper and spread the mixture out evenly in the pan, put in fridge to cool and then break it up like peanut brittle. Either way, these don't last long at our house!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
So I've tried countless blueberry muffin recipes & what I consider the perfect one has eluded me....until now. These are fabulous. They are just what I was looking for - they rise tender, light & full of flavor. It's more of a cake-like muffin than a dense one. 20 minutes in my convection oven is perfect. I have made these with both frozen & fresh blueberries & fresh ones always have just a bit more flavor to them. I've made these 3 times this week. They just won't keep in this house! Oh and by the way, it has been my experience as with any muffin I've made, they - without exception - seem to taste better the next day.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III
I have made a LOT of dessert recipes on this site & this cookie, by far is the winner, so far. My picky 24 yr old son loves them. I sent my daughter's fiance home with 4 of them just to try out & he ate 2 on the way home, TRIED to hide them from my daughter, let her have one (in his defense she's dieting) & then begged for more. I sent over 6 more & today he asked for more. My husband says their so good I could sell them. wow. I never expected all that. The only subs I made were 2: I used crunchy pb for the cookie part & I didn't have any heavy whipping cream so I used half-n-half. They are extremely sweet but that doesn't seem to stop anyone from eating them! I frankly don't think they taste anything like the Girl Scout version. Their cookie is crunchy & the filling is firmer. I like this version better; the cookie stays soft & the filling is a little creamier. I store mine in a Tupperware container in the fridge. It's just a personal preference; we all seem to like them better that way. I made mine with a small scoop (one bigger than a melon baller) & I like that size. They sort of remind me of the Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies as far as size & texture of cookie & filling - again but way better! Some one has asked me to try making them & then dipping them in a chocolate coating. I may just try that on a few & see if my victims don't die of a sugar overdose! I will be making these again this weekend, by popular demand. Thanks Joanne!
