Today I am excited to be guest posting over at Simple Acres Blog. I am sharing my recipe for spiced peanut butter yogurt dip. This is one of my go to snacks, but with a bit of a fall twist with pumpkin pie spice. This makes a perfect mid day work or after school snack or even breakfast and it great for adults and kids alike.
Head on over to Simple Acres Blog for the recipe!
Does anyone else love pickles as much as I do? Do you get excited when a bloody mary comes with several different pickled veggies? To me, that salty, vinegary taste is to die for and I think almost any veggie could be delicious pickled, but today we are sticking with the classic cucumber. These are quick pickles so no need to sterilize jars, can, and wait for a long time to devour them. You can call it the cheater method but I like to think of it as the efficient method ;)
These are super easy and have a wonderful sweet and spicy flavor. They are great to use anywhere you would use regular pickles (sandwiches, burgers, etc.) and are also great on their own.
- 1 lb Pickling Cucumbers, sliced 1/8″ thick
- 1/2 cup Sweet Onion, Thinly Sliced
- 1 cup White Vinegar
- 1 cup Water
- 1/4 cup White Sugar
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 2 tbsp Salt
- 1 tsp Whole Black Peppercorns
- 2 tsp Mustard Seed

- Add sliced cucumbers and onions to a 32oz glass jar.
- Bring all other ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan and stir until sugar dissolves.
