Recipes using peanut butter could be worth a kitchen makeover

By Allen Pierleoni

For decades, peanut butter has been a staple in kitchen cupboards and in lunch boxes everywhere. We take it for granted (unless we're allergic), but now's the time to take a second look. Your original recipe that uses the gooey stuff as an ingredient could win you a $10,000 kitchen makeover.

That's what the makers of Jif peanut butter are offering. They put it this way: "We are asking home cooks to share the innovative ways they're incorporating peanut butter into their holiday spreads at gatherings of friends and family. (Enter) the Jif Holiday Spread Recipe Contest for a chance to win one of two $10,000 prizes for a kitchen makeover."

There will be one grand-prize winner in each of two recipe categories: savory and sweet.

To enter, and to read the rules, go to The deadline is Jan. 17.
