I am obsessed with chocolate and peanut butter!!! Here is a fast and easy recipe that will be ready in minutes! For a healthier kick, substitute ½ cup sugar with rolled oats. For a fancy kick, sprinkle the tops with sea salt!

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Drop large spoonfuls onto baking sheet (about 1 ½ tablespoons) and use a fork to press down the top. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Let sit for 5 minutes before moving from baking sheet, and enjoy!

Let This Rustic Pear Tart Into Your Heart!

| Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Mariko Laugh

I love making tarts! This simple and delicious recipe is perfect for breakfast and dessert! For a gluten-free / low-carb version, skip the puff pastry and add all ingredients to a pie plate. Experiment with different Greek yogurt and fruit combinations, and even try adding a sprinkle of nutmeg or cinnamon – the possibilities are endless!

½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed (plus flour for rolling)
2 ripe pears, thinly sliced
2 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out puff pastry on lightly floured surface, and fit into lightly greased 9in tart pan (with removable bottom) or pie plate. Arrange pears on bottom of pan. In small bowl, mix yogurt and eggs, and pour over pears and spread evenly. Bake for 35-40 or until set. Cool and serve!

Drown Your Meat In This Simple And Delicious 4th Of July BBQ Sauce!!

| Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Markio Knives

Happy 4th of July! I'm looking forward to a day by the pool, and some action on the grill. BBQ is one of my favorite foods in the entire world, so here is a BBQ sauce recipe that can be ready in minutes without the preservatives and fake ingredients of the store bought brands. Customize your sauce by adding a splash of hot sauce, garlic, liquid smoke - or even whiskey!

1 cup ketchup
1/4 sweetener (brown sugar, molasses, honey or agave)
1 Tbsp mustard (I like a super spicy dijon)
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce

Add all ingredients to small saucepan over medium heat, and stir until combined. Bring to a boil, and continue stirring until all ingredients are dissolved and reduced (about 5-10 minutes). Use as a marinade or dipping sauce for your favorite meat, and enjoy!
