    My husband loves two things -- peanut butter and dark chocolate. I don't blame him. The sweet and salty combo is a winner. And my children go gaga for the taste as well! These Chocolate Peanut Butter Blossoms are not only easy to whip up, but the batter freezes well enough to make a second batch later on in the week. Shhh ... don't tell him, but I'm going to make him a batch of these cookies for his birthday! That is, if the kids don't get to them first.

    Few things in this world say summer more than the ice cream truck. Just the music is enough to start a Pavlovian response in most children that usually involves squeals of delight and begging mom and dad for cash, pronto. To make matters more exciting, few parents can resist getting in on the fun themselves (hence summertime weight gain!), but let's face it: It's all part of the charm.

    So what kind of person are you? When you choose from the truck, are you the kind of person who goes for the classic red Popsicle? Or do you get more adventurous and go for the Drumstick?

    Here are six classic ice cream truck choices and what picking them says about YOU:

    Here's a puzzle we face every morning. You want your kids to have a healthy, home-cooked breakfast to start the school day, and you'd also love for them to be able to serve it up themselves. But a) you don't have time to whip up a hot breakfast before work and school, and b) the best your kids can do on their own is pour a bowl of cereal or make a piece of toast or a frozen waffle.

    Save yourself some early-morning stress (and guilt) without resorting to the usual milk and cereal. Try one of these overnight slow cooker breakfast recipes

A picnic so ingenious and pretty, total strangers will pin photos of it to Pinterest. (Because you Instagrammed it, shamelessly.) Not that that's the main purpose for this meal! Of course you're doing it for your own enjoyment and the pleasure of your picnic companions. But you know what I mean. You open that basket and everyone gasps: Ooh! Ahh!

    Here are 12 ideas for a beautiful, Pinterest-worthy picnic. They're not all the most practical tips -- that's not what this is about. For once, we're putting form just a wee bit ahead of function. But at least these are do-able ideas.

    Lately I've got ice cream on my mind. Not just ice cream, but ice cream concoctions -- sundaes, sandwiches, you name it. I've been craving decadent ice cream desserts like crazy lately.

    Whenever I think of barbecue ribs, I think about sweet, savory, sticky sauce that gets all over your face and hands! Fun, right? Sometimes. Other times? It's just a hassle. So lately I've been looking into recipes that require a great dry rub -- tons of spices and savory flavors that are rubbed right into the meat as a tenderizer. Mmmmm!

    We tried this short ribs recipe at a recent family get-together and loved it:

    My husband loves, loves, LOVES fried chicken! As for me, I like eating it but want nothing to do with the messy pans and splattered grease all over my kitchen, to say nothing of the calories that come with deep frying.

    This oven-made fried chicken recipe would make us both happy ... it uses boneless, skinless breasts, and instead of frying, it cooks in the oven in a bit of butter for maximum flavor and minimum fat! However, it boasts a crispy, flavorful coating just like the classic preparation. Best of all, it uses a disposable pan, so you can take it to a picnic or potluck or just toss the whole thing when you're done. This would be a great homemade alternative for nugget-loving kids, too.
