  3. 2 cans black beans drained

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your recipes sound so good. I have made those peanut butter cookies before and I just couldn't believe they'd actually work. They are so easy and yummy. I'll be by again!

Yummy soup. We will have to try it.

Seeing your PB cookies reminds me of NO BAKES... I think I am going to have to make a batch of these. :)
