History of the Peanut Butter Cookie
The peanut butter cookie was first made in the United States, its development dating back to the 1910s.
George Washington Carver (living in the 19th & 20th century), an American agricultural extension educator, from Alabama's Tuskegee Institute, was the most well-known promoter of the peanut as a replacement for the cotton crop, which had been heavily damaged by the boll weevil. He compiled 105 peanut recipes from various cookbooks, agricultural bulletins and other sources. In his 1925 research bulletin called How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption, he included three recipes for peanut cookies calling for crushed or chopped peanuts.
It was not until the early 1930s that peanut butter was listed as an ingredient in the cookies.

Do You Love Tiramisu? Check Out My Fast & Easy Recipe For the Best Homemade Tiramisu
One of the first things that I think of when I hear or read 'Italy' is Tiramisu. I just can't help it. Of course, Italy has much more to offer then just their delicious Tiramisu.
Tiramisu is the most well-known dessert, it simply is the crème de la crème!
Tiramisu was invented by a confectioner called Roberto Linguanotto while he was working in his restaurant 'Le Beccherie' in Treviso, Italy. People say that tiramisu has aphrodisiac effects and therefore was served in brothels in Trevisto.
The name tiramisu comes from tireme su, which is dialect of Treviso for 'pick me up'. In Italian it's tiramisu.
