Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes & the Nuts About Oats Contest

I've been working on putting together a resume for a special project that I'm trying out for, and I admit I've been hating the process all the way through. It's one of those tasks that just does not seem to jive with my brain, and I really wish I could just throw all my experience and hobbies and accomplishments and skills into a big sack and pass them on to someone a bit more left-brained to deal with and return to me on paper.

The frustrating thing is that, up until this time last year, I could whip up a resume with no trouble. But that was back when my career path was a touch more straightforward. Now I joke that my current occupation is "slasher," because I'm a food writer/blogger/cooking teacher/entrepreneur/on camera host/event planner/recipe developer/caterer etc. It's awesome and I love it, but I wish I didn't have to express it all on one neat sheet of paper.

As one of those slashes, I've worked with an awesome company called Peanut Butter & Co. to create recipes for their website featuring their peanut butter (which I loved and bought long before they hired me). I did this last year, creating recipes like phyllo-wrapped shrimp and this maple peanut butter challah bread.

This year, they came to me and asked if I would like to be part of a contest they were running in conjunction with Bob's Red Mill--yet another brand that I'm a little bit obsessed with and purchase regularly. The idea was to create a breakfast recipe combining peanut butter and oats into one delicious dish.  I would be competing against five other bloggers for a prize of $1000, and the winner would be determined by readers (like you!) who vote for their favorite.

For my recipe, I created Peanut Butter Oatmeal Pancakes using Peanut Butter & Co.'s Old Fashioned Smooth peanut butter (my favorite as the only ingredients are peanuts & salt) and Bob's Red Mill Extra Thick Rolled Oats. That's the pancakes in the photo up there, and can I just say that they are AMAZING! Eugene, who is pancake obsessed, ate about 11 "test" pancakes in one sitting. I have no idea why that man is not very, very fat.

I would love it if you would take a second to pop on over and vote for my recipe on the Nuts About Oats site. Upon clicking the vote button under my name, you'll be asked to enter your name and address to make sure you're a legit human member of the public, and not just my mom voting 978,000 times. And ALSO because by voting you'll be entered to win an awesome $100 prize pack of goodies from PB&C and Bob's Red Mill (5 winners!). Your vote will also get you an instant coupon good towards a product of your choice.


At the very least, do pop on over there so you can check out and download the yummy recipes created by the other ridiculously talented bloggers including including Eat the Love, An Edible Mosaic, So Good and Tasty, Lemons and Lavender and Thyme in our Kitchen.

Thanks so much, you guys! I really appreciate it!
