Breakfast and Brunch

This Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake could not be more gorgeous and the perfect cake for entertaining your guests!

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

With Memorial Day right around the corner, this beauty is the perfect cake to serve your guests for your upcoming gatherings.  With flavors that everyone loves, you can’t go wrong with this one!

It’s always a pleasure partnering with Fleischmann’s® Yeast today to bring you new recipes.  I put a spin on the classic strawberry shortcake we all know and love.  For a little wow factor, I made the shortcake with a nice hint of peanut butter and layered them between some sweet whipped cream.  I love the addition of the chocolate curls on top too.  A fun dessert all around that is simple to put together and worth baking a little extra so you can share the love (and the delicious results!)

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

You’ll use Fleischmann’s® ActiveDry Yeast for this recipe.  If you don’t use yeast much when baking, don’t be intimated, it’s actually quite simple and fun.  Fleischmann’s® Yeast can be used for a variety of everyday and seasonal recipes.  Baking is always one of my favorite ways to show how much you care for someone!

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Add your Fleischmann’s® ActiveDry Yeast to some warm water in your mixer bowl.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Sprinkle in a little sugar too.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

You’ll add half of your flour and give a nice stir to combine.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Place the dough aside, cover loosely and let rise until it doubles in size.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

When your dough is ready, cream the butter and sugar until light then add your vanilla.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Add the peanut butter next.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Mix in your eggs.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Beautiful!

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Add your dough into the bowl and give a gentle mix.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Pour evenly into two greased 8-inch cake pans.  From here, you’ll cover and let rise for a good hour-hour and a half.  You’ll then bake at 350 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes until baked through.  Let cakes cool, remove from pans and layer onto your cake stand.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

You’ll add a nice thick layer of sweetened whipped cream to the middle of your layered cakes and top with another dollop of whipped cream surrounded by sliced strawberries.

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

The peanut butter, whipped cream and strawberries work so nicely together.  Your guests will be over the moon about it!

Peanut Butter Layered Strawberry Shortcake

Be sure to cover loosely in the refrigerator until ready to serve.  I would assemble the cake shortly before your guests arrive for best results.

Dinner

These Spicy Apple BBQ Grilled Chicken and Potatoes are the perfect simple weeknight summer dinner the whole family will enjoy.
Spicy Apple BBQ Grilled Chicken and Potatoes

It’s a pleasure partnering with KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce Mix and Dry Rub to bring you a simple recipe quick enough to whip up on busy weeknights.  I decided to make some BBQ grilled chicken with a little kick along with some pan fried BBQ red potatoes.  Wait until you try this recipe for dinner.  My boys really loved it.  I used my handy indoor skillet pan and prepared this dinner in under 30 minutes.

Hope you enjoy!

Spicy Apple BBQ Grilled Chicken and Potatoes

For the chicken tenders, all you’ll need is KC Masterpiece’s BBQ Sauce Mix and Dry rub, some apple juice and 1 tablespoon of your favorite hot sauce.  I used Sriracha to give it that little kick.  I purchased all of my ingredients at Walmart and used the Original flavor today.  They can be found in the condiment aisle, near the other KC Masterpiece BBQ sauces.  Walmart makes it a breeze to create delicious meals for your upcoming Summer entertaining.

KC Masterpiece’s BBQ Sauce Mix and Dry Rubs are available in three flavors: Original, Sweet Honey, and Spicy Habanero.  I really love that it makes it easy for you to customize your meal to taste just how you like it. Customize it with water, juice, soda, any other liquid of your choice or just use it as a dry rub.

I love that there’s two pouches inside the box that can be used as a BBQ sauce, dry rub or marinade.  I actually used one as a BBQ sauce for the chicken and one as a rub/seasoning for my pan fried potatoes.

Spicy Apple BBQ Grilled Chicken and Potatoes

Since the potatoes take the most time to cook, start by heating the skillet to medium high heat.  Once the oil is hot, add your potatoes and BBQ rub seasoning over top.  Stir every couple minutes to make sure all sides get browned and cooked through.

Spicy Apple BBQ Grilled Chicken and Potatoes

To prepare the BBQ sauce for your chicken tenders I used apple juice for my liquid.

Spicy Apple BBQ Grilled Chicken and Potatoes

Add the pouch to the apple juice.

A nice tablespoon of your favorite hot sauce.  I used Sriracha today.

Give a nice stir and voila!  BBQ sauce 🙂

This Chocolate Covered Cookie Peanut Butter Milkshake is over the top and so fun to share with your favorite person!
Chocolate Covered Cookie Peanut Butter Milkshake

What a pleasure partnering with Hershey’s  today to bring you a new recipe.  I thought what better way to use Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup than inside a fun milkshake.  Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup is a sweet and simple take on the Hershey’s classic, now made with five simple ingredients. It contains no fructose corn syrup or artificial colors and flavors.

Hershey’s brings back such great memories of my childhood.  Takes me back to movie nights with my family and friends while getting comfy on the couch with popcorn and ice cream.  I can vividly remember being in the kitchen giggling with my girlfriends drizzling Hershey’s syrup over our ice cream while talking about school, boys and our plans for the evening.

I love sharing fun moments in the kitchen with my boys.  There’s something so bonding and wonderful when we’re all in the kitchen together preparing a great meal or fun treat.  I can always count on Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup for simple dessert ideas that everyone enjoys.  My boys like to be the ones to drizzle the sauce over our dessert!  It’s an easy way to share a sweet and simple moment with your own family.

Chocolate Covered Cookie Peanut Butter Milkshake

Here’s some of the ingredients you’ll need for my milkshake.  I also used a little milk, cream filled chocolate cookies and whipped cream for the top not photographed.

Chocolate Covered Cookie Peanut Butter Milkshake

5 things we love using Hershey’s Simply 5 Syrup on are as follows:  ice cream, strawberries and bananas, a tall glass of milk and graham crackers spread with peanut butter.  So many fun options!

Be sure to follow Hershey’s on Facebook and Twitter!

Chocolate Covered Cookie Peanut Butter Milkshake

To make my fun milkshake, find some tall milkshake glasses and spread outside top portion with a little bit of white frosting.

Chocolate Covered Cookie Peanut Butter Milkshake

I used some mini chocolate chip cookies to go around my edges.  You could use chocolate chips, mini candy bars, sprinkles and anything else you think would be good.

Chocolate Covered Cookie Peanut Butter Milkshake

You can make this milkshake in a blender if you’d like, but I prefer mine a bit more chunky so I just stir my ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Whatever your preference works!

Place your cookies into the ice cream bowl.
