Peanut Butter Cookies

  Did you know that November is National Peanut Butter Month!? I didn’t, but I applaud whoever proclaimed this glorious holiday.

Now upon reading this, some of you may think I have made a mistake. Chocolate…and beets. This is not your typical Duncan Hines or the chocolate cake Bill Cosby served his kids for breakfast, but make no mistake, this cake is delicious. Even as a beet enthusiast, I do not want to find obscure beet […]
