Buttered Up

June 14, 2012


Good afternooooon! This day is just whizzing by – in a very productive way!

Before lunch, I had exercise company when my friend Sarah joined me for a walk! School is out for the summer! We had a long talk about technology (post on new advancements coming!) and books and the hour flew by.

Sarah brought me some of her latest creation – Cookie Dough Nutty Butter! You never know what nut butter she will invent next : ) [Edited to add: More info on how to get your hands on it in the comments – unfortunately it’s a secret recipe]


Stuff is GOOD! So of course I had to have it for lunch.


I made a CDNB & JATD [Jam According to Daniel : ) ] on toasted sourdough – delish!!


Enjoyed a watermelon and mint salad (Sarah reminded me I need to use my mint!)



And amped up the protein with about 2/3 a cup of cottage cheese topped with a little coconut sprinkle.


All in all, filling and gooood!

Cookie dough nut butter? Holy cow that sounds amazing… and a little dangerous.

Does she have a recipe for that?


2 KathEats June 14, 2012 at 1:12 pm

i linked to it :)


3 Diane June 14, 2012 at 1:16 pm

She didn’t post the recipe on the website. That looks delicious!


4 KathEats June 14, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Oh I’m sorry, I thought she did. I’ll ask if it’s somewhere else.

There is a page on my blog about how to order some. The recipe is a bit of a secret, but it’s a base of three nuts (cashews, almonds, peanuts).



7 Diane June 14, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Sarah – I’m interested in buying but wondering if you have any (estimated) health stats. I know it’s homemade so they won’t be exact but just wondering.

That cookie dough nutter butter looks delicious – and the packaging is adorable!


9 SavoryandSavage June 14, 2012 at 1:13 pm

The watermelon looks soo good – It is blazing hot here today and the melon looks so refreshing!


10 Caroline @ After Dinner Dance June 14, 2012 at 1:13 pm

I bet that cookie dough nut butter would be good in overnight oats! I may try to make some that isn’t too peanut buttery for myself!


11 Lindsey June 14, 2012 at 1:14 pm

Coconut sprinkled on cottage cheese! Great idea! I’ll have to try that ASAP.


12 Cait's Plate June 14, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Oh my goodness that cookie dough nut butter looks SO good.


13 Khushboo June 14, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Ohhh I bet that cookie dough Pb would taste fab mixed in cottage cheese!


14 Farah June 14, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Hi Kath- What brand of cottage cheese do you buy? I haven’t found one I like…it’s a texture thing with me – can’t be too ‘creamy’…Thanks!


15 KathEats June 14, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Whole Foods Low-Fat Organic – I’m picky about my CC and love this one!


16 Farah June 14, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Thanks! I’ll check it out – though going into Whole Foods is always dangerous with me. I live right across the street form one, and always walk out with way more than I’d planned on buying … oops!


17 Jamie @ StudioEats June 14, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Looks like an awesome lunch! I love adding coconut to random things.


18 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) June 14, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Oh mint and watermelon…YES! YUM! That nut butter looks and sounds perfectly delicious! I love how the flavor combinations are endless!


19 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat June 14, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Hehe I think you’re going to need to start a KERF Dictionary – CDNB & JATD, SIAB, Hugh Jass… 😉 Sounds like a great day so far!


20 KathEats June 14, 2012 at 1:40 pm

: )


21 Lace @ Real Food Quest June 14, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Cottage cheese is a hard one for me. Is there a brand/type you suggest?


22 KathEats June 14, 2012 at 1:41 pm

I love the Whole Foods low-fat organic. I’m picky and hate fat-free CC and like it to be just the right amount of cream + curds


23 chris June 14, 2012 at 1:36 pm

I subscribe to this whole foods 52 list serve and just got this recipe for almond ginger honey nut butter! Hope to try it soon! http://food52.com/blog/3645_homemade_nut_butters?utm_source=FOOD52+Subscribers+List&utm_campaign=134fee7056-FOOD52_Digest6_8_2012&utm_medium=email


24 Emily @Emily's Olives June 14, 2012 at 1:42 pm

omg! I love the look of the butter and the jars are so cute! I am envious of your lunch, I forgot mine this morning :(


25 Averie @ Averie Cooks June 14, 2012 at 1:47 pm

mint & watermelon

and homemade nut butter/cookie butter…oh yeah!!!


26 OliePants June 14, 2012 at 2:01 pm

What a delicious lunch. Now, I’m feeling inspired to make jam!


27 Catalina @ Cake with Love June 14, 2012 at 2:01 pm

So simple but so delicious! That nut butter sounds amazing!


28 Julia H. @ Going Gulia June 14, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Oh wow, that nut butter DOES sound good. Someday it’s going to become one of those delicious recipes everyone’s trying to figure out (like the Olive Garden salad dressing!)


29 Kim @ Spoonful of Sass June 14, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Nothing better than a good ‘ole PB&J…or a gourmet version!


30 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles June 14, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Oh heavens- that looks like an amazing lunch! ….I love cottage cheese with some coconut extract and pineapple chunks stirred in! Mmmmmmm! :)


31 Runak June 14, 2012 at 2:31 pm

I noticed that you haven’t been using your stainless steel straws anymore. Did you have a problem with them. I was thinking about getting me a set but not sure now. By the way I really enjoy your blog.


32 KathEats June 14, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Nope, just swap back and forth each week (I use one about a week and then either wash the stainless or throw away the plastic)


33 gina @ skinnytaste June 14, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Wow that butter looks good!!! It was so nice meeting you in Seattle!! Hope you had a great trip back.


34 KathEats June 14, 2012 at 6:47 pm

Lovely to meet you too Gina!


35 Grace @ Grace Dishes June 14, 2012 at 2:40 pm

That cookie dough nut butter looks divine! Sounds so yummy and creative.

I love watermelon this time of year :) it’s so sweet and refreshing and perfect for hydration!


36 Chelsea June 14, 2012 at 2:42 pm

You make me so jealous with all your fancy nut butters. Your lunch looks fantastic!


37 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles June 14, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Cookie Nut Butter…oh my! How creative! Just finished picking baskets of strawberries for strawberry jam…now that would go nicely in your sandwich!


38 Liz @ Tip Top Shape June 14, 2012 at 2:53 pm

That nut butter sounds amazing!!!


39 Annette @FitnessPerks June 14, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Whoa! Hello indulgent nut butter! Hah. Gotta try mint with watermelon–looks tasty!


40 Ashley @ Hudson on the Potomac June 14, 2012 at 4:12 pm

Haha, love the picture caption “Green = Vegetable.” Looks like a yummy lunch! Still jealous of your sourdough!


41 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats June 14, 2012 at 6:26 pm

how sweet of her to bring that! it looks delicious!


42 Meagan June 14, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Coconut and cottage cheese? Thats def a new combo :)


43 Angel7 June 14, 2012 at 7:37 pm

What a great concoction for nut butter :)

Watermelon with mint sounds good!



44 Maria June 14, 2012 at 10:44 pm

I have purchased the nut butter and it is out of this world! Glad you enjoyed it too and am a bit jealous that Sarah lives so close and can get it to you easily :)


45 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count June 15, 2012 at 7:37 am

That all sounds delicious!!


46 Lee, Anytime Health June 15, 2012 at 12:48 pm

Homemade nut butter is THE BEST! Especially if it’s a gift :) I love her presentation.


47 Zoe @ loseweightandgainhealth June 15, 2012 at 4:55 pm

The nut butter looks wonderful. But I am loving your little blue bowl and spoon the most – the one you had the cottage cheese and coconut in. How gorgeous they are.


48 Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See June 16, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Oooh I would bet that the cookie dough nut butter is awesome on cottage cheese! Cookie cheesecake perhaps !?
