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.

T’was the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring except for the kid eating a cute peanut butter mouse!
Combine peanut butter and butter in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add powdered sugar; continue beating until dough forms.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Pinch 1 end to form nose. Place onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets or trays. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
Melt candy coating according to package directions. Place waxed paper onto flat surface. Place 1 candy onto fork (keeping remaining candies refrigerated). Dip into melted candy coating. Coat entire candy, allowing excess to drip off by tapping fork against side of pan. Place dipped candy onto waxed paper. Immediately insert 2 almonds for ears and 1 piece licorice for tail. Repeat with remaining refrigerated candies. Let stand about 30 minutes or until coating is set.
Use decorator gel to make eyes and nose. Store refrigerated.

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
