March is Nuts!

Did you know that March is National Peanut Month? Well, now you do! It first began as National Peanut Week in 1941 and then in 1974 it was expanded into a month long celebration. In fact, March kicked off with National Peanut Butter Day on the 1st. And if that weren't enough nuttiness, today is National Pecan Day.

Robin Robertson's Nut Butter Universe celebrates peanuts, pecans and more, as it's jam packed with creative ways to make delicious, protein-rich recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks - all using nuts and nut butters. Just a small amount of nut butter can add great texture, flavor, and nutrition to your meals.

Celebrate March's nuttiness with a Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie and Cranberry-Pecan Butter Muffins.

This Szechuan Stir-Fry with Fiery Peanut Sauce is full of peanutty deliciousness.

Who could say no to scrumptious home-made peanut butter cups?

This Black Bottom Peanut Butter Freeze Pie makes a for a sweet treat any time of the year!

March may almost be over, but the amazing recipes in Nut Butter Universe will have you cooking year round.  Nut Butter Universe is now available for both Kindle and Nook so you can take it with you wherever you go!
