PEANUT BUTTER BROWNED BUTTER RICE KRISPIE TREATS

More often than not, it seems most of the inspiration I gather for my baking projects revolves around what I observe in day-to-day scenarios. Take, for example, my seemingly random urge to make these peanut butter rice krispy treats. If it hadn’t been for taking myself out to lunch at Meat Cheese Bread last week, these probably wouldn’t have existed. I ordered my green bean bacon relish sandwich, a mineral water and a bag of chips, but I resisted the urge to also add one of their peanut butter rice krispie squares to my tab–despite how badly my mouth was watering and how strategically placed they were next to the register. This is how I talked myself out of it: Kylie, make your own at home!

LIFE UPDATE THRU INSTAGRAMS

September 20, 2014

Jumping for joy with Jenni Poirier. Jenni and I became food blogging friends several years ago, and after visiting Portland last summer, she decided to make the move here from Germany for good (or at least for awhile). She is a top-notch pastry chef, is ridiculously brave for moving to a different country away from her family, incredibly intelligent, always up for adventure, and a great friend. And she’s single! (hint hint Portland men…) Here, we went hiking up 3000ft on Tuesday to the top of Dog Mountain, an extremely difficult hike on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge. This was my second time trekking this mountain, hiking up and running down, and quadriceps came out of it twice as sore. But it feels oh so good (as long as I don’t squat down!). Five days later and we are still sore and recovering.

For those of you that may not be aware, pumpkin and rosemary are two of my favorite things on the planet earth. I’ll come up with any excuse to use them in whatever I can, at any given moment. Rosemary is one of those things that I debate buying every time I’m at the grocery store, because I must have it on hand at all times, but nearly every block of Portland has at least one rosemary bush that is too plentiful to not be picked. One of the main reasons I look forward to eventually owning my own home is so that I can grow an herb garden and never have to worry about it. Rosemary shortage is never a good thing.
