Dreaming of me

I get asked a lot about how I come up with ideas for recipes. My dreams mostly. I usually sketch them out in tiny little drawings. Think about it a bit. Watch Oprah. Think some more. Go eat ice cream. Think. Draw again. Then finally...bake.

Sometimes it's a day, sometimes the creative process is a month. Usually because I've forgotten what I've drawn.

This was in the back of my mind for some time - a chocolate peanut butter frosting. I had planned to make it using a lovely peanut butter + melted chocolate combo, but I happened upon a jar of this bad boy:
The aptly named Dark Chocolate Dreams. I just substituted this for the PB in my regular Peanut Butter Frosting recipe. Way easier, and when it was all said and done, DELICIOUS. You just can't beat that combination. I used it to frost a bunch of Banana Cupcakes and I think the flavors worked out perfectly.

Now back to sleeping to think up more recipes. Or at least catch up on Oprah.

Do you take requests? Can you come up with a recipe for peanut butter banana cookies. I have been dreaming about them for years but, as I mentioned before, I am a terrible baker, so improvising doesn't usually work out well for me.

(P.S. I am making your strawberry green tea matcha cupcakes this weekend.)
