If it’s even possible, I think I’m a little partied out from my third birthday this weekend. I’m so excited to be starting another year with all of you lovely readers! To celebrate the first start of a new year I’m bringing a giveaway today!

I work with a lot of great companies through this blog and one my favorites is Peanut Butter and Co. out of New York. Not only do they put out a really tasty line of products, they also have a sandwich shop right in New York City! I had the opportunity to finally visit the shop last month while I was in town. I met up with my contact in the shop for a tasty lunch that included none other than a peanut butter sandwich. I know what you’re thinking, how can they make a business out of peanut butter sandwiches? Well, for one they make a pretty mean peanut butter sandwich. And two, it goes beyond just the sandwiches. Their quaint little shop offers a cozy dining experience perfect for adults and kids.

Peanut Butter & Co. NYC

After looking over their menu multiple times, I settled on the Cinnamon Raisin Swirl sandwich complete with Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter, vanilla cream cheese and apple slices. Let me just say that this sandwich was a little bite of heaven and if I could break into their recipe vault and steal the recipe for the vanilla cream cheese I totally would. Amazing combination!

Okay, enough of the sidetrack. Peanut Butter & Co. has put together an amazing group of bloggers called the Yum Squad. Very fitting. Our task this month was to create a recipe that featured both a jar of peanut butter that they sent us along with a mystery ingredient. Ooohhoo mystery ingredient. It felt so very Chopped to open my shipment and find none other than a jar of Sriracha. How fun!

Asian Noodle Bowl With Sesame Peanut Dressing

After going back and forth between a sweet or savory dish, I landed on this Asian Noodle Bowl with a Sesame Peanut Dressing. Which I think turned out pretty amazing. The peanut dressing makes a great sauce for the rice noodles and the Sriracha offers just the right about of spice. The nice thing is that if you want to take this dish up a notch in heat, just pour on some more Sriracha!
