30 Absolutely Yummy Peanut Recipes

March is National Peanut Month and I put out the call to some of my very favorite bloggers to bring me their best peanut recipes and they did, 30 absolutely yummy peanut recipes!

My love of peanuts is genetic. I’ve actually given my mother jars of peanut butter as gifts.

You know the large ones that you get at the warehouse stores? I think they weigh 5 pounds and I know none ever goes to waste. I don’t devour peanut butter quite like that.

No, I want mine in yummy peanut recipes like these. O.k., it’s time to share!
