What do you do when you end up in an alternate universe in which you need to bake something but there is absolutely not a single tbsp of butter in your fridge?  Make peanut no-butter chocolate chip cookies, of course!  Check out the recipe over at Marcus Samuelsson’s site.

Also, I wanted to let everyone know about the release of a new recipe website called Gojee, which will feature tasty dishes by some of the blogosphere’s most talented food writers (yours truly included).  Please go check it out!

  1. Clever and delicious! Personally when I don’t have butter I use tahini; simple! 🙂

  2. Peanut butter’s definitely my go-to on everything! I’d rather have toast nearly any day of the week with PB as opposed to butter…well, unless it’s some kind of olive or rosemary bread. These look great!
