As I’ve told you before, Valentine’s Day is not my favorite holiday. I’m sure that if I wasn’t single, it really wouldn’t be all that bad. Given my current situation, it’s just another day.

This year, however, Valentine’s Day is going to be a special occasion because I’m planning a birthday lunch for my mom who is turning 60. I’m excited about the party, but at the moment I’m also a bit nervous. I talk a lot about stress-free entertaining, and I’m doing my best to keep things that way. Still, stressing out just seems to be in my nature. And, in some weird way, I think all that adrenaline is what fuels my creativity and helps me to get stuff done.

    You are a GREAT blogger! I love stopping by here to see what you’re up to whether it’s traveling, shopping, decorating, cooking or just talking. And now I want to go home and make these right this very second! 🙂

    Michael these sound wonderful. I read to kids at a school that does not allow ANYTHING with nuts in it. I am going to find something to substitute for the peanut butter – any suggestions?

    Oh HELLO yum! Thanks for making me drool all over my keyboard! I love rice krispy squares and love reeses pb cups so this is pretty much a divine combination if you ask me!! xo,D

    Sounds delish! You could use those little mini Reese cups they sell in the bag, too. And Michael, don’t stress about Valentines Day. Remember that it was invented to sell greeting cards! :p

    I am loving all your recipes. I print them out and then when I look for them the name of the recipe is so small I have a hard time reading them. Can you make the name of the recipe larger.
    I love all your inspirations and look forward to your blog every day. You are the best.

    You ARE the best ever. Your event for your mother (lucky girl!) will most certainly be lovely! Before I opened your site, I thought this would be jazzed up peanut butter krispy treats, but I should have known they would be super jazzed! These are on our menu for sure. Thanks for the continued inspiration.

    Your Mom is definitely blessed to have a son that does such nice things for her. 🙂 Love rice krispy treats and peanut butter cups. Of course together, has to be delicious.

    I just wanted to tell you how much I love your blog! I love your approach to food it’s all stuff we love to eat but done with a sophisticated twist.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    I just bought the ingredients for these. I never would have even thought to put peanut butter cups inside the krispies. Nice call.

    Oh these look so scrumptious! How do you stay so trim and slim when making these wonderful treats all the time. I’m going to try and make a half batch since couldn’t eat a full batch on my own.
    Well, I could, but I would probably eat them morning-noon-and night until gone, and that would not be a good thing. They look and sound so good, and your photo’s are wonderful!. Sure love receiving your blog emails.
