Peanut butter has certainly received a bad rap in the news as of late, but it is time for that legume to regain its popularity, and what better time than on National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day! I am celebrating today’s festivities in a few ways. For starters, I will be whipping up a batch of Peanut Butter Cinnamon Popcorn. This should keep me going while I work on a peanut butter packed recipe for an upcoming cookbook, and on a second peanut butter sandwich-themed recipe for Peanut Butter Boy’s 5th exhibition contest (details below). I thought you might be interested in his contest as well as some other current foodie blog contests and giveaways, so I have included a mini-round-up below. But, stay tuned, because I have a VERY AWESOME GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT TOMORROW! If you like variety, snacks, and healthy sweet treats, then this giveaway will be for you.
