Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Recipe

This cheesecake is so mouthwatering, with chocolate fulfillment and peanut butter makes for a combination of deliciousness…..Give it a try and let me know what you think.

The only bad part of making this is that it is supposed to sit for 4 hours in the freezer before serving it.  Thank goodness there are bowls and spoons to lick!  It seems complicated the first couple of times making it, but hopefully my directions and pictures will help you make sense of it.


  • 1 cup oreo crumbs
  • 3 Tbsp margarine
  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups cool whip
  • 2 squares semi-sweet baker’s chocolate (2 oz)

Baileys Ice Cream Recipe – Yum!

I was at a New Year’s party last year and they were serving baileys ice cream shooters and I just had to have the recipe.  When I make it, I don’t have them as shooters though….I’m kinda bad.  I make it and put it into a container so after it freezes I can scoop it into an ice cream cup and enjoy like nobody’s business!

I’m sure there’s a moderation factor here, but it’s sooo delicious, I don’t think it matters.  Maybe just don’t drive if you eat the whole container.

Just a quick warning…this is highly addictive and also probably shouldn’t be shared with the little ones!


  • 1 vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup baileys
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1/2 container cool whip
  • 1/2 cup oreo crumbs

Stovetop Popcorn Poppers – My Review

I have a Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper that I absolutely love.  This is my go-to popper mostly because there are less unpopped kernels in the end of the process. And the seasoning that we get for our theatre style popcorn is sooo good.

When I make my caramel popcorn, I generally search through the popcorn, inch by inch, ensuring that there are no kernels left.  I have learned the hard way by breaking a tooth and having to have dental surgery to repair it.  And of course, this was at Christmas time and their office was closed.  Merry Christmas!  So I always do my family and friends the courtesy and make sure that it is completely safe to eat.

I used to use an air popper that goes on the counter top, but the cord would get hot and there would be popped corn as well as hot kernels flying around my kitchen.  When I was using this method of popping my corn, I would have to sift through the popped corn between each batch as there were so many unpopped kernels.  I figured it was time to retire this popper, since I was almost burning my hand just by unplugging it from the wall.

After the air popping style, I evolved into using the EasyPop Popcorn Maker.  This one lasted me a couple of years, but then the motor or something inside it stopped working.  The centre piece would still rotate along the bottom, but it would not heat up anymore.  It was a very sad day for me when this happened.  But, as they say in show business….the show must go on.

What style do you like use and like best?
