Back when I lived in Texas, we tried the scented trash bags.  Then it just smelled like rotting trash and scented trash bags.  It was not a good combination.

We use the odor block trash bags for food garbage. They make a difference for us. Anything truly stinky, like used cat litter or fish cleanings gets double bagged in grocery sized plastic bags first.

They used to be pretty awful. The Glad ones, though, seem to be a really significant improvement. I've tried them all... like I said, ostomy trash is the worst smelling stuff EVER - even worse than cat littler or diapers.

If a recipe calls for peanut butter can I replace it with regular butter?  I really hate nuts but the rest of the recipe looks good.

I doubt it, very much. Dairy butter cooks very differently than peanut butter. One of the points of using peanut butter is the flavor but another is the consistency.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

I don't think that will work very well.  Are there other nut butters you would like?  I'd be tempted to sub half butter, half other nut butter and see how it goes.  You might need to up the sugar a little bit, too, as regular peanut butter will have quite a bit of sugar but other nut butters probably won't.

Can you give a brief description of the recipe?  There are things you can sub, but regular dairy butter is probably not suitable.

I'm not sure of the size of articles you're talking about, but have you ever considered using a diaper genie or maybe a cat litter genie?  Just a thought.
It's not what we gather along the way that matters.  It's what we scatter.

It's a cheesecake with 5oz of peanut butter in the mix (poured over a chocolate crumb and chopped up chocolate bars). I wish I liked nuts it would make life a lot easier but unfortunately they're one of those ingredients I can taste a mile off. I know...first world problem...

Well, if it's just a cheesecake, I would probably just 1) leave it out or 2) just swap it out for 5 more ounces of cream cheese (maybe one of the sweet flavored ones).

If the peanut butter is included as a topping or base crust, I think it would be absolutely fine if you left it out all together without substituting anything.

If it's included in the basic cheesecake mix itself, it might be needed as a thickener. In which case, it's probable that you could substitute the peanut butter with extra cream cheese instead of butter.


Would you please post the exact recipe?




(not that it would help us answer your question . . . oh. no. . . . we don't need the exact recipe for that . . . it's just that this sounds like an absolutely decadent cheesecake! ;D)

I agree; just replace it with more cream cheese.

You know, I've thought about it, but somehow DP has vetoed it, I think because she doesn't want to be in the same category as a child or a pet. Perhaps I should try again, though - and the size is smaller than a diaper, larger than a litterbox cleaning (at least, if we're talking cats smaller than a tiger) so the diaper genie would be perfect.

This is a practicality trumps hurt feelings, Rebecca. You need something to make that better for you and DP to live around.
