  • Kitchen Adventures: Peanut butter and chocolate: The perfect combination

    There is one combination in a dessert that excites me like no other — chocolate and peanut butter. Whoever first decided to put these two foods together is a genius.

    On one of nightly surf through Pinterest, I found a cake recipe that stopped me in my tracks, a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cake.

    This was one cake I needed to try to conquer.

    “The thing I like about the NCAA college basketball tournament is that any team can win it all.”

    I was explaining to my wife why I was standing in front of the TV, eyes glued to the NCAA Tournament and not sitting in my usual place with her watching the evening news.

    Although I have a few favorite teams, the truth is my main attraction to March Madness is in anticipating the little guys, the Lehighs, the Virginia Commonwealths, and the Norfolk States taking down the big boys, the Dukes, the Michigans,and the Missouris.
