Mmm...Peanut Butter

Various sites around the internet are taking as evidence the use of peanut butter as an ingrediant at gourmet restaurants as proof of recession. I wholey disagree. Who doesn't love peanut butter? (Aside from those people with that irrational phobia of getting peanut butter stuck to the roof of their mouths...or people with peanut allergies...or people who don't really like nuts...)

Bon Appetit came up with some fabulous desserts AND THEIR RECIPES made with peanut butter.

And Cheastypants, since I know you won't be having confections like this for a few weeks more, and because I know how much you lurve when I post about food you can't have, I thought maybe you could try making these down there. Barring that, you could just look at the yummy, yummy pictures.

These are peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake swirl brownies. The recipe is here.

This Peanut Butter Honey Tart with Ganache Glaze (drool) combines three of my all-time favorite ingrediants: peanut butter, chocolate (ganache, no less) and honey. Sweet mother, I want to eat this.
