Peanut Butter Nutella Cookie Recipe + What Makes Me Happy as a Mom

by Jillian Leslie on

Nutella Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

I was asked by Nutella to show how I like to "spread the happy." What a cool assignment. I'm a big believer that happiness is contagious. Just watch a group of kids laughing, and you'll quickly notice your own smile (or even laughter). It's just that easy.

So for Memorial Day, we were invited over to our friends' house for a BBQ. I love bringing homemade desserts to spread some happiness, so this year I made  homemade peanut butter cookies and sandwiched them together with a dollop of Nutella. Do you know "cookie" is a happy word? It makes you smile when you say it. Just try it.

15 Mouthwatering BBQ Recipes

15 Mouthwatering BBQ Recipes | CatchMyParty.com

I love cooking in summer. All I have to do is throw something on the grill, add a simple marinade (or not) and whatever I cook, typically ends up tasting good. And for entertaining, it's such an effortless and casual way to go. Plus, I like that it usually gets messy, which I think just adds to the fun. I always make sure I have plenty of napkins available.

Charred smoky flavors make my mouth water. To me, there's nothing better than the smell of grilled food -- from steaks to hamburgers to shrimp to chicken to veggetables... and even fruit. That's why I loved compiling this collection of grilled dishes from Foodie.

We were given a basket of goodies from Kraft and asked to come up with our own recipe. How fun, especially when the basket contained two of my favorite ingredients.... chocolate and marshmallows!

I knew instantly I wanted to make cookies. But sometimes it's hard to add marshmallows to cookies because when you bake them, the marshmallows can sort of evaporate.

We were asked by Kraft to add our spin to one of their spring dessert recipes. So here's our take on their Luscious Lemon Poke Cake. Instead of "poking" the cake with holes to get the Jell-O flavor inside, we decided to create a cupcake with an actual Jell-O filling surprise inside! I can't wait to serve these to guests to see their reaction!

There is nothing better than a "girls night in," hanging out with girlfriends (preferably in pajamas), binge watching a show, eating something decadent, like greasy fried chicken, and drinking something delicious.

I was asked by Trop50 to incorporate their raspberry açaí juice blend into a yummy drink.
