my top four spreads (of the moment)

In no particular order…

1.) Brad’s Organic Peanut Butter – Unlike popular brands like Jif and Skippy, this is made only with peanuts, so it has that true nutty taste I love.  And I’ve just recently discovered how good it is to eat peanut butter right off a spoon.

2.) Trader Joe’s Lemon Curd – I haven’t opened the jar yet. For fear of what might happen when I do.

3.) Hero’s Raspberry Preserves – Spreads on toast like a dream. And tastes like one too. I like to pair this one up with the aforementioned peanut butter for a quick and tasty breakfast.

4.) Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter (my hands-down favorite!) – Magical. It tastes like buttery, gingersnap-ish, cinnamon-y goodness with the consistency of thick peanut butter and the added texture of finely-ground Speculoos. Like I said, magical.

    i just had two pieces of toast with cookie butter on them for breakfast! so, so delicious. my favorite way to eat trader joe's lemon curd is a little spread on a shortbread cookie topped with a couple of raspberries or blackberries. beyond delicious and an easy dessert.

    These pictures are so simple – but they are beautiful! I've been looking for an all natural peanut butter that someone recommends – I'll have to try Brad's. And cookie butter?! I didn't know there was such a thing – but I want it!

  9. Shoko says:

    Yum, lemon curd…and COOKIE BUTTER?! No way. No. Way.

  10. Pink Ronnie says:

    Ooooh yes, eating peanut butter off the spoon should be banned. It's TOO good.
    And I'm with Shoko – cookie butter!? That is too awesome.

    Cookie Butter?? Oh yum! Never heard of it (or Trader Joes) here in Ireland so I believe a trip Stateside may be in order! Your photos are divine. :)
