Easy Peanut Butter Fudge

While taking my Pinterest break yesterday I found this easy recipe 

and the taste buds said this would make a yummy summer dessert so I spent a few minutes in the kitchen to stir this together and tuck in the fridge.

I made half smooth and then half crunchy because that's the way I like it.

The prep that took the longest was shelling the roasted no-salt peanuts 

I had in my peanut basket.

Of course, it would not have taken as long to get enough peanuts for add-ins 
had I not snacked ... ;)

I also added crushed graham cracker crumbs to the crunchy half.

This is good, but I think next time I will dig out my 40 year old recipe for

No Bake Peanut Butter Bars 

which are more similar to 

The ratio of 10X sugar to peanut butter makes for a less sweet 
and more peanutty taste. 

Really ... I did not just have a piece of peanut butter fudge with my coffee 
while I typed this morning post ... ;)

My back has been acting up so my sewing and gardening and cooking 
and such this week is off to a slow start. 
Not sure what I did over the weekend that put the knots in my back.
I am trying to stretch the knots out and it is helping.

In my quilty corner, Butterfly and I are finishing the binding on ...

... the pink baby sister quilt. 

I use no pins or clamps when I bind a quilt.

I just roll and stitch as I go along.

I do not use a lot of pins when I sew and quilt.

Yesterday I had a reader write to me about my quilting technique ...

I do not baste, use pins or basting spray when I quilt.

I am wondering if others would be interested in a tutorial on my method.

If so, leave me a comment or drop me a email.

I love to share with other quilters.

Linking up today with

Down Home Blog Hop @ Tilly's Nest

where I enjoyed reading the links and learned why two on my hydrangeas did not bloom this year.  I cut then back too late in the fall. Now I know better.  Next year they will bloom again.

Living and learning here in the scrapatch.

Thanks for visiting!

Have a happy quilty day!
