Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

scotch rice krispie treats

this recipe for rice krispie treats uses peanut butter for a different flavor variation.  i have had this recipe for years and although there are many online, i find this one to be the old time classic.

at times, i have added a layer of melted chocolate to the top of these bars and also had a great result.

to make the treats:  place 3 cups of rice krispies in a large mixing bowl.  in a double boiler, melt 1/2 cup peanut butter with 6 ounce of butterscotch morsels. pour over the cereal and mix well until all krispies are covered.  press into a 9 by 9 square pan that has been prepared with baking spray and lined with waxed paper for easy removal.  press in firmly   chill for at least one hour prior to cutting into bars.  if desired, just after pressing into bars, melt 6 ounces of chocolate in a double boiler and spread on top of the bars prior to chilling.
great for fall and especially halloween as the children are running door to door gathering candy and treats for the holiday.
