Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.
Kids love this honey bee cookie treat.
Combine peanut butter and margarine in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add powdered sugar. Beat until well mixed. Stir in graham cracker crumbs.
Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1 1/2-inch ovals. Place onto waxed paper-lined cookie sheets.
Combine chocolate chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100% power) for 30 seconds; stir.Continue microwaving, stirring every 10 seconds, until mixture is melted and smooth (10 to 30 seconds). Cool slightly.
Place chocolate in small plastic resealable food bag. Cut very small tip from one corner of bag.
For each honey bee, pipe 3 chocolate stripes on each oval; insert 2 almond slices in each side for wings. Insert 2 chow mein noodles in head for antenna; insert 1 short chow mein noodle for tail. Dot with chocolate for eyes, if desired.
Refrigerate until firm (at least 30 minutes). Store refrigerated.

This was a very fun recipe to make and decorate. The peanut butter honey bees are delicious and a very sweet treat!
Very cute, but not easy to make look like this. When the peanut butter bodies were firm enough to mold, they were too firm to insert the almonds or noodles without the body crumbling or the other parts breaking. Next time I would suggest molding the bodies first, then warm slightly to soften before decorating, then chill before serving.

It was a beautiful day and Dad offered to take over dinner. He found a manly recipe for Mustard & Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops and made a plan.

After you make the hamburger patties and light the grill, what do you get out of the fridge?
Probably ketchup, mustard and relish. Maybe mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. Those are the classics, and I love them, too.
But, sometimes I like to look at the burger and bun as just a starting point for some fun, creative cooking. More ...
