Peanut Butter Ice Cream

by Michele Pesula Kuegler April 15th, 2013| Desserts, Recipes
We have had our ice cream maker for about a year and a half.  In that time we have tried a number of flavors:  vanilla, coconut, pistachio, coffee, and more.  We haven't used the ice cream much in the last few months, as winter weather isn't necessarily conducive to

Peanut Brittle

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 28th, 2013| Desserts, Recipes
A quick glance at this recipe for peanut brittle could make one think that it is ridiculously simple.  Boiling and stirring three ingredients does seem to be easy.  However, things aren't always what they seem.

I'm not trying to discourage readers from trying this recipe, I simply am offering a

My children are confirmed choco-holics.  Chocolate in almost any form is enjoyed by them:  cookies, cake, pie, granola bars, sandwiches even.  (Nutella has become a regular stocking stuffer for all of them.)  So, it is such a nice change of pace when they request something that doesn't have a

For our final week of holiday treats, I am pleased to share a recipe from one of the PKP specialists, Melissa Koerner.  She serves a dual role, as both a fitness expert and nutrition expert at My Fitness Tunes.  Melissa has been sharing her expertise with our readers since

Snickerdoodles

Every Christmas season my mom makes my favorite cookie, Snickerdoodles.  These tiny sugar cookies are wrapped in delicious cinnamon sugar.  They are best when they are warm, but they are always good.  I especially love them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel.  The

Southern Peanut Butter Pie

Last year during the month of December I shared family favorite recipes from members of the PeKu Publications team.  I thoroughly enjoyed learning about others' family traditions, as did our readers.  Thus, I have decided to make this an annual tradition. Over the next several weeks, I will be

Chocolate Whipped Cream Sundae

by TT Jr. November 14th, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
If you ask me, ice cream does not have a "season".  You can eat it all year long. I don't care if it's winter, I'm still gonna eat it.  It's even better when it is homemade.  I love a decadent sundae the best.  And with all the fixings.  I

Cake Pops

by TT Jr. October 3rd, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
You know the only thing better than cake?  Portable cake.  That is pretty much what cake pops are.  Plus, they take like 30 minutes to make.  One of my favorite cake combinations is vanilla cake with chocolate frosting.  Try making that bite size.  The creation is a cake pop. 

Peanut Butter Cups

If you haven't noticed, I kind of love peanut butter and chocolate...It is a match made in heaven, and I could live off of it.  Well, besides all of the nutrients they are lacking, like vitamins and minerals, but besides that I could.  I have had this recipe with

Fudgy Peanut Butter Brownies

by TT Jr. September 3rd, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
OK, OK.  I know I just did a brownie recipe two weeks ago, but in my defense this recipe is waaaayyyy yummier.  Last night I had an insane craving for peanut butter and chocolate.  My friend, Rachael, who was sleeping over really wanted brownies.  Together we decided to attempt

One Serving Gooey Brownie

by TT Jr. August 22nd, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
The other day I had a real craving for a brownie, but I knew I wouldn't need a whole pan of them.  So I scoured the internet, searching for a single serving browning that you didn't use the microwave for.  I've tried those before, and the texture is waaaayyyyyy

Angel Food Cake

Our youngest has a Christmas Eve birthday.  A few years ago we offered him the option of celebrating it near his half-birthday.  He seemed to think this was a good idea, as the day would be all his and not rushed with other family and holiday events.  Thus, for
