Hubby: my personal chef

Chocolate Souffles with Peanut Butter Centers
"O taste and see that the Lord is good; how blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!" Psalm 34:8

This smooth, creamy, warm, rich treat made our lazy Sunday afternoon quite special. Hubby loves to cook and I don't mind a bit! His approach toward food is quite different, though - cook a recipe once then toss it and move on to the next. The Lord has made available so many flavors, why get stuck in a rut? Several times a year, he purchases the current Bon Appetit magazine. This particular dessert was published in the November 2006 issue.

At first, this philosophy was rather difficult for me as I love my comfort foods; however, I've grown to enjoy it immensely. It takes much less time to select an item from a menu. It's all food. Next time chose something else.

(Just between you & me, I've saved a few of the recipes which demanded another taste-test!)

Hello.. The Chocolate souffles look so yummy! You have been blessed with a great hubby. How fabulous that he likes to cook. I'm off to have some Hot Chocolate to try and warm up. It's up to -20 (with wind chill) here in oHIo right now. Have a good day :-} ~Mary~ IsabellasCloset

The souffles look delicious. My husband is a great cook when he has time (which hasn't been much lately). Isn't wonderful to have a fantastic husband! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

Can I borrow him? YUM. We have to "import" JIF peanut butter here becuase they don't sell it in the UK.

I am so hungry now! Thanks for your comment on my blog!
