    This was excellent! I halved it because I only had a little bit of apple juice but now I'm wishing I'd had more! This made a tasty breakfast this morning, spread on flour tortillas. Next time, I think I'll try it on toast or an English muffin. Thanks for the recipe! - Jan 25, 2009. Update: I made this again (a full recipe this time!) and used part crunchy part creamy p.b. - still awesome! :) Thanks again!

    This is a great healthy snack. I think it would be great for a fast on the go lunch when spread on high fiber crackers such as Wasa Brod or Rye Krisp.


Our picture was taken at Bryce Canyon NP when we celebrated our 47th anniversary. (It has now been 54 years!!) <br> <br>Of course, I love to cook and bake. Desserts seem to be my specialty, however my husband & I like Mexican, Southwest, Greek, and Italian cuisine alot. Healthy food(soy milk, tofu etc.), alot of raw vegetables and made from scratch comprise much of our diet. I have always had problems cooking fish, tho we do like to eat fish. We are both retired. <br> <br>I love Labrador Retreivers and have owned, trained and shown several very nice ones! <br> <br>My husband and I are both natives of Colorado, however somehow we ended up living in St. George Utah, in the South west corner, near Zion, Bryce, & Grand Canyon National Parks, which we enjoy alot. Before the price of gasoline took a jump, I volunteered at Zion NP. <br> <br>We celebrated our 53th wedding anniversary in the summer of 2008.
