It all started with pregnancy #2. I remember craving pickles and peanut butter, together. When no one was watching, I was dippin’ that Vlasic pickle in a peanut butter jar like it was my last bite. Luckily, I can now share this pickle-peanut butter obsession with you!
It’s no wonder that child now eats ketchup with her slice of cake. She literally pours ketchup on her cake. Fingers crossed, it’s a phase.

When Farmer’s Garden by Vlasic approached me about joining their campaign for Savor Simplicity to celebrate life’s joys and share recipes, BBQ tips and summer entertaining ideas, I of course jumped at the chance, knowing exactly how I wanted to share my tips about the perfect baked “fried” pickles. Hint: It’s all in the cooking spray.

Though these are not cooked on the grill, they literally take 7 minutes to bake. Dipped in Peanut Butter Frosting (DO IT!) or even a bowl of cool Ranch Dressing (booooring), it will feel as right as it looks wrong. Trust.

You should also know that Farmer’s Garden by Vlasic launched the Savor Simplicity Sweepstakes, where all can enter for a chance to win a summer entertaining package valued at $1,500. Plus, entering the Sweepstakes unlocks a $1 coupon for Farmer’s Garden.

  1. Peanut butter frosting?! Yum!! I had no idea this was going to be as delicious as it was, I should have made double the amount. The kids are already begging for me to make them again! Thanks for sharing!

    HOLY MOLEY! I am heading off to the store to stock up on pickles…. Been eating dill pickles and PB since the early 60’s! One of our favorite sandwiches in the lunch box…even on occasion added the jelly too! Nom Nom Nommy! Cannot wait to try these! Thanks!

  3. As a pregnant girl who can’t handle hot sauce, I instead spooned in some of the juice from the jar. I am not disappointed. I didn’t do the pb stuff though. I’m too chicken. Lol.

  4. Sounds really intriguing to me! Will try it for sure! I used to fill the half squeezed lemon with yogurt and have it right from the lemon cup. I still do it sometimes.
