Crispy, Chewy, Peanut Butter Cookies {traditional and gluten free recipes included}

Crisp, Chewy, Peanut Butter Cookies {traditional and gluten free recipes included}These are beyond any doubt the BEST Peanut Butter Cookies I have ever tasted. Not at all dry, not at all greasy, crisp edges, chewy centers, practically perfect in every way! If you hang out with me on Instagram, you've been waiting quite a while for this recipe. (Thank you so much for being patient!) I promised it to you over a month ago! I wanted to test it once more before sharing it here and with the hassle of moving into a new house last month, my baking kept getting postponed.

These cookies are worth the wait though! While the simple and fun 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies will forever be in our recipe files, this is an entirely different cookie. For a while now, my husband has wanted me to make a crisp and chewy Peanut Butter cookie. I've played with several different versions over the past year and this recipe finally nails it. I hope you love them every single bit as much as we do!

Huli Huli Chicken

Huli Huli Chicken recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Tangy, sweet, Huli Huli Chicken is Hawaii's version of barbecue chicken. The chicken is marinated and then glazed as it cooks, it is loaded with flavor from pineapple, ginger, brown sugar and soy sauce. I ran across this recipe over a year ago and pinned it to try someday. I'm not sure how "someday" became a year and a half later, but I'm glad it was finally made.

I've made this chicken twice in two weeks and each time, the whole family raved about it. Served with Cilantro and Lime Pineapple Rice or with Simple Asian Rice and Roasted Green Beans, Huli Huli Chicken is great meal that is guaranteed to be made over and over again in my house.

Honey Lime Winter Fruit Salad

Honey Lime Winter Fruit Salad - recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Sweet oranges, pineapple chunks and kiwi slices are tossed with a simply honey lime poppyseed dressing to make this Honey Lime Winter Fruit Salad. This salad takes barely five minutes to prepare and it disappears almost that quickly. Just in case you haven't noticed, my family eats a lot of fruit. Simple fruits, baked fruits, fruit salads, chocolate dipped or blended into smoothies, we love it all. This time of year, the selection is limited, but there is always a heaping basket of oranges on the counter. I wanted a fruit salad centered around our favorite cutie oranges and this one was perfect.

No Bake Chocolate Cereal Bars

No Bake Chocolate Cereal Bars - recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Chocolate and peanut butter are mixed with crunchy cereal to make these super easy No Bake Chocolate Cereal Bars. When I was very young, I went camping with the Girl Scouts and our counselor taught us to make what she called "Babe Ruth Bars." The ingredients were stirred together, then rolled into a log, chilled and sliced. My counselor wrote out the recipe for me and I took it home.

My grandmother was sweet enough to save that recipe for me and over the following years, we would make those bars on special occasions. I remembered the recipe a while back and I dug it out of my old cookbook. I read it several times and then made a trip to the store, just to look at the ingredients in an actual Babe Ruth bar. Uhm, there is no similarity at all. I have no idea why she called these Babe Ruth Bars and the name now makes me laugh. I've since swapped out half the ingredients, so they are likely to be even farther from the original. Whatever you decide to call them, these bars are sure to be loved!

Cheater Korean Beef

Cheater Korean Beef - recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Cheater Korean Beef is the kind of recipe that both beginning and experienced cooks need in their life. This simple meal comes together in minutes and is full of fantastic flavors. It's easier than ordering take-out, saves you money, and tastes better too!

I love so many things about this recipe! This dish includes our favorite Asian ingredients, and everything is simple enough to be found in most grocery stores. The fact it's made with ground beef instead of a more expensive cut of meat makes it a really great alternative to the pricier meats when you are craving Chinese food. Best of all, you can make this recipe start to finish in less than 20 minutes. I've served the beef over rice, wrapped in lettuce, and on top of a salad.
