You know how George Washington Carver discovered over 300 uses for peanuts? Well, I’ve done a little discovering of my own…

I’ve been suffering from a craving for sugary goodness and peanut butter has never failed to satisfy my sweet tooth. We’re pretty close if I do say so myself. (:

What better way would there be to wake up than to your best friend? That’s why I treat myself to peanut butter swirl pancakes whenever I please. You should too!
