  • Hi. I’ve just ordered a jar of your peanut butter through Amazon. Belatedly I noticed in comment descriptions that it’s characterized by not being creamy-thick, so I thought I’d check for recipes where that texture isn’t needed. (Your pad thai recipe uses almond butter, but I’ll try it with your peanut butter.) I have all the ingredients on hand (during Covid-19 quarantine) to make your pad thai sauce except molasses, so I may try dates or raisins for sweetness. Question: I’ll be making it with tofu, not chicken. I only have green bell peppers left, not red, and I’m wondering if you’ve ever tried the dish using green, or how you think that would work. Thanks!

    Joy on
