Behind the Scenes

There are a ton of websites related to peanut butter.  I chose to change my blog name to Peanut Butter and Ginger to celebrate one of my favorite flavor combos.  It can be savory, it can be sweet, but it’s always delicious!  I first had this explosive flavor combination two years ago in a Japanese candy from H-Mart.  I’ve been obsessed ever since.

Trying is an important part of my food philosophy.  Growing up, I was always made to “at least try” whatever was set in front of me.  It’s part of how I got to be the crazy foodie I am today.  And if by chance I try something I don’t like, 99 times out of 100 I will try it again just to be sure.  I’ve even triple and quadruple checked before.  If at first it doesn’t taste great – try, try again.

I hope you enjoy my blog.  There will be some recipes, some funny stories, some sappy memories and definitely some food!

    • Thanks, Nicole. It definitely still feels surreal that he isn’t around, but I can just hear his laugh as I “tell him” about some of the crazy food combos that I’ve whipped up. =)

  1. I have never tried peanut butter + ginger! Since your entire blog name is devoted to it, I think I absolutely must. Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and it is nice to ‘meet you!’ You have a wonderful food philosophy. I too will try anything… at least once!

  2. Lauren, you rock!!! I know you know this, but I had to say it anyway. You are the most amazing daughter in the world, and having you as my “bestie” is a bonus I feel lucky to have. Hanging out with you is one of my most favorite things to do, and you have been my link to sanity many days during this past year. Your blog is the bomb and I so love being your “guinea pig” (the vegan kind of pig, of course). But more than the blog …. I love you.
