Summer has definitely hit full force here in the Middle East. It’s only June and Dubai has already seen temperatures of 110 F. It really hasn’t felt too bad, but that’s because I’m hunkering down indoors like someone experiencing a blizzard out in Wyoming. I’m just on the other side of the spectrum. It’s not depressing like a cold winter in the north which is nice. That’s because the dang sun will not go away. Not a single wisp of cloud in the sky for the entire summer.
A luscious chocolate bundt cake full of peanut butter chips and dark chocolate chips. Smothered in chocolate and peanut butter ganache, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt cake looks so indulgent you’ll be shocked at how easy it is!
This May will mark our family’s one year anniversary of living in Dubai. I’m shocked at how that creeped up on us. We absolutely love it here and we won’t be moving back to the States anytime soon, mostly because my husband has at least 5 years of work left! Dubai is growing like crazy and they’ve been on a theme park craze lately. (Chris is a project manager for an indoor theme park that’s being built) It’s only one of the may under construction right now.
Amazing thick and chewy peanut butter bars with an apple cinnamon streusal and salted caramel drizzle. If you adore apples smothered in peanut butter, these Apple Peanut Butter Bars with Salted Caramel will be your new best friend.
How can I make a healthy snack of apples and peanut butter into a completely decadent and insanely delicious not so healthy dessert? That may or may not have been my thinking while developing these bars. It’s okay though. I eat these in my gym clothes so that I can run straight to the gym and work off the calories after pigging out. It’s my system and I stand by it. By the way, these Apple Peanut Butter Bars with Salted Caramel are totally worth running those extra miles on the treadmill.

If you can believe it, I’ve only posted a couple of peanut butter desserts on this blog. This will make magical number three. Total blasphemy, right? How can I call this a dessert blog and only have three peanut butter treats. Just have patience my friends. There is more coming…I promise! With peanut butter on top!
Chewy Peanut Butter Jelly Cookie Bars with triple berry jam, creamy peanut butter frosting, and sugared blackberries and raspberries. Relive your childhood all over again. It’s peanut butter jelly time!
Let’s rewind back to elementary school days, shall we? Peanut butter jelly sandwiches were my jam! See what I did there? If you missed it, we will move on quickly to avoid any awkwardness. As a child, I remember watching my mother make my peanut butter jelly sandwiches for school. I would eagerly wait as she would gently trace a heart with the butter knife on the peanut butter side. It was her way of christening each sandwich with her love. So everyday at lunch time, I would peel back that piece of soft white bread to reveal her stamp of love. That’s why my mother made the best peanut butter jelly sandwiches 🙂
