Smashing Success!

After weeks of planning and much anticipation, the day finally arrived.  I had the PB&J party for my adopted fam this weekend.  I had a bad case of the jitters the night before, but everything went fine.  The recipes came out great, especially my third attempt at a PB&J cake.  I received lots of compliments on my place and on the food.  Many were surprised at the way the peanut butter and jelly were used in a dish.

Here’s the final menu.  I will post pics and recipes shortly.


  • Celery Sticks with Spicy Peanut Butter Mango Dip
  • Apple Slices with Peanut Butter Ginger Dip
  • BBQ Beef Crescents with Apricot Glaze


  • Naan Chicken & Veggie Pizza
  • Peanutty Steakhouse Chili with Buttery Jalapeno Biscuits


  • PB&J Cake
  • Blackberry Nutter Butters

It was a wonderful day… but exhausting!  I was beat by the time Sunday morning rolled around.  That’s why I didn’t go through my photos and other material as quickly as I’d hoped.  Check back soon!

In the meantime, I’m so glad that it went well, and I’m looking forward to planning my next funky theme party.
