My boyfriend Marc and I made our very own peanut butter from scratch. We simply mixed dry roasted, lightly salted peanuts, honey and vegetable oil in a blender, to taste. You can substitute peanut oil for vegetable oil and instead use unsalted nuts. Either way, it's delish! Most importantly, don't be discouraged. It seems at first that the peanut butter isn't turning out right. Just keep adding oil to make it a buttery consistency. And you've done it!

Are you a cookie fiend? Me too! I once ate a whole bag of Oreos in one sitting. My love has been made into a new form--a buttery spread. English Biscoff cookies have been ground up into a paste. The flavor is a little spicy with cinnamon and brown sugar included. Plain cookies taste wonderful dipped in their mashed up counterpart, or spread on toast with peanut butter and/or chocolate.
Biscoff Spread can be purchased at Whole Foods. Trader Joe's also has come out with a variation called Cookie Butter.
