I'm a human being on planet earth. I've lived hundreds of lifetimes. In this incarnation I'm here to advance medicine.

Wow, what a fantastic response to the PB & Co. giveaway! You guys clearly love peanut butter just as much as I do. The responses were pretty evenly split between White Chocolate Wonderful and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl.

We have a winner…

# 177 Anna said “I would def. love the cinnamon raisin swirl! mmmm! my favorite way to enjoy pb is simple: toast!”

Anna, you have a jar of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter coming your way :). Kindly send me an email at foodliving AT gmail DOT com with your full name and address when you get the chance! PB & Co. has kindly offered to ship off your winnings, so you can expect a package sent directly from them.

Many of you mentioned that you can’t find certain flavors at your local grocery stores. I highly suggest placing an order through the Peanut Butter & Co. website – trust me, it’s worth the shipping charges!


In other news…

I’ve had a lot of fun reading through this survey on friends’ blogs, so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and fill it out myself.

Here we go!

A-Z Survey

A. Age: 28

B. Bed size: A queen cherrywood sleigh bed, which is too small for John, me, Roxie (cat), and Shelby (dog). We need a king!

C. Chore you dislike: Cleaning the toilets. Which is why this is John’s chore ;).

D. Dogs: Best animals on the planet (sorry, Roxie). Shelby is a 6 year old mixed breed we adopted from the SPCA, and my life would not be the same without her! I had dogs growing up as well (golden retrievers and labs), and luckily John became a dog person after we started living together.

E. Essential start to your day: Breakfast! I typically eat breakfast within 1/2 hour of waking up. I’m usually pretty hungry in the mornings.

F. Favorite color: Green & blue. And Purple. And all shades in between. I like cool colors better than warm!

G. Gold or silver: I actually don’t wear much jewelry – the only pieces I wear everyday are my engagement and wedding rings. That being said, I prefer silver to gold.

H. Height: 5’4″. Wish I was taller, but what can you do.

I. Instruments you play(ed): I took piano lessons throughout elementary/middle school, played clarinet and violin in elementary school, and dabbled with guitar in college. I’d really like to get better at the latter – John is my inspiration as he is quite the guitar player.

J. Job title: Special educator, food blogger, recipe developer.

K. Kids: Soon!

L. Live: Currently, we live in a sun-drenched apartment in the suburbs just west of Boston. We’re looking into buying a house, and probably won’t stray too far away from where are now.

M. Mom’s name: Melinda/Mel.

N. Nicknames: Laur, L, The Carbo Queen (thanks, Dad), Breecker (my maiden name), Breecks, L-Dawg (from college… don’t ask, because I don’t have an answer!).

O. Overnight hospital stays: None, thank goodness.

P. Pet peeves: Massholes (bad Massachusetts drivers), people who complain all of the time, and people who try to push their beliefs/opinions on others.

Q. Quote from a movie: Can I pick one from a book instead? “I prefer the saddle to the streetcar and star-sprinkled sky to a roof, the obscure and difficult trail, leading into the unknown, to any paved highway, and the deep peace of the wild to the discontent bred by cities…It is enough that I am surrounded with beauty.” ~ Everett Ruess, excerpted from Into The Wild by Jon Krakauer

R. Righty or lefty: Righty.

S. Siblings: Older brother Dan, who lives in Austin with his wife and two adorable kids.

T. Time you wake up: 4:45 with John’s alarm, then 6:00 with mine. 6:30 on the weekends. What can I say… I’m a morning person.

U. Underwear: Um… yes?

V. Vegetables you don’t like: Cabbage & mushrooms. Blech. And olives. Wait, are those a fruit?

W. What makes you run late: Honestly, not much. I am usually too early.

X. X-rays you’ve had: Routine dental and tibia (shin bone) when I broke it playing soccer. I played tennis from there on out.

Y. Yummy food you make: Hopefully everything that makes it onto the blog! I suppose my “signature” recipes are the varieties of mini cheesecakes and dried fruit & nut “truffles”/bites. I also adore pretty much anything with sweet potatoes in it.

Individual Cookies & Cream Cheesecakes
Individual Ginger Pumpkin Cheesecakes
Individual Maple Cheesecakes
Individual Mint Chocolate Cheesecakes
Individual Peanut Butter Cheesecakes
Apple Crisp Truffles
Blueberry Coconut Pie “Truffles”
Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough “Truffles”
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough “Truffles”
Peanut Butter, Date, & Oat Bites
Tropical Dried Fruit and Cashew Butter Bites

Z. Zoo animal favorites: I’d much rather see animals out of captivity.

If you post the survey on your blog, I’d love to know about it! You can also answer any of the questions in the comments section below.

Have a fantastic weekend, all :).
