Thai peanut sauce is my addiction. I always have a container ready to go in the fridge. I love it on wraps, noodles, or a red cabbage salad. My husband uses it every morning on my homemade whole wheat multigrain toast.

We are a family of four, ovo-lacto vegetarians, so peanut butter is a great source of protein and happiness in our home. There are so many amazing uses for peanut butter, as a dip for apples, ants on a log, savory thai dishes, etc. But what we love Peanut Butter in the best is our sandwiches. We all have our own take on the classic PB&J (on whole wheat bread). My youngest daughter likes the traditional PB&J with strawberry preserves, my other daughter likes PB and Honey (organic clover), my favorite is PB and Banana, and my husband likes the oh-so-unhealthy fried PB & Banana, a la "The King", Elvis Presley. (uh-huh!) We <3 Peanut Butter!

My husband is a peanut butter fanatic! I like to add it to my morning oatmeal but he eats a spoonful a day with a handful of dark chocolate chips. We go through a jar of peanut butter a week!

I love peanut butter! Smooth, crunchy, honey flavored... it's all fantastic. I have peanut butter every morning with an apple or banana. I also love it in Asian cooking, peanut butter cookies, or just straight out of the jar. If I win the case of peanut butter, I'll definitely be trying your recipes above. I love exploring new ways of preparing familiar foods! : )

I still am that little kid that you speak of that eats nothing but peanut butter. I always have a scoop of peanut butter on the side of my kashi Autumn Wheat cereal in the mornings topped off with blackberries, blueberries and bananas. After my workout, I will make a peanut butter protein shake followed by a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and for snacks, I dip all sorts of things into my peanut butter from vegetables to crackers or make an apple, peanut butter, lettuce sandwich. This is just the beginning of my experimentations with peanut butter and I once made pasta sauce with peanut butter. It was great. It's funny that I saw this on Twitter because I go through a family sized can of peanut butter by myself in about a week and a lot of people kind of know me from eating so much of it. The first conversation I ever had with my girlfriend of 2 years was about peanut butter! I wouldn't keep it all for myself, though. Peanut Butter is a great thing to send overseas to impoverished nations or to local food shelters because it has such a long shelf life, is inexpensive, and because it has so many calories. I would want to send some, if not all of it overseas to less fortunate people so they can experience the greatness that is peanut butter.

I use Peanut Butter to make ice cream, peanut butter cookies, and to dip carrots, celery, and apples, as well as the classic PB&J and Fluffernutter! Best of all, I give it to my husband when I need some peace and quiet -- a spoon and a jar of PB (one of his favorite foods) keeps him busy and it's hard for him to talk! Haha!

I'll take peanut butter on a spoon, midnight or noon; on some bread, with some fruit spread; as a cookie, in a pancake, or peanut butter cornflake bars that are no-bake; on some noodles or in a soup, peanut butter is the best darn goop!

Ah peanut butter! It is the food of the gods. I have peanut butter on wholewheat toast for breakfast almost every morning. When I eat pancakes or waffles, (wholewheat of course), I have to have spread peanut butter on them instead of butter, and real maple syrup. Peanut butter and honey sandwiches are great for when need a snack in the afternoon. When I'm at my desk at work, and need a quick pick-me-up, I eat a giant spoonful of peanut butter, and that tides me over till my next break. Peanut butter on celery is fabulous healthy snack too! What would I do with a case of peanut butter? Well, I would eat it course!

Wow!! A whole case of peanut butter?? Where to start?? With 6 kids, we'd be in Peanut Butter Heaven!! The obvious would be the sandwiches they'd take for lunch every day, then there are their dad's favorite peanut butter cookies, my favorite peanut butter bread recipe, and for my 4 year old we would of course be making peanut butter playdough (1 cup creamy peanut butter, 1/4 cup honey and 1 cup non fat dry milk).

Peanut Butter is in the same category of "magic food" as bacon and beer. There is never a wrong time to have peanut butter. PBJ's are a staple for my kids, and whatever they don't eat goes straight in my gullet (no calories for leftovers). Even awesomer is mixing two of the magic foods, a Peanut Butter and Bacon sammich. Good, crisp bacon is the key, on wheat toast. And you haven't lived until you've had a Peanut Butter Burger. Yes, with bacon is accepted and encouraged. As you can probably tell, I'm a little more of a gun-toting meat-eater than the usual Whole Foods crowd. That is part of the magic of Peanut Butter, it can bring people of all types together. If Congress sat down around of a table of PBJ and milk, we'd get this health care debate settled right quick.

I love a plain old PB&J any day. My son loves peanut butter and banana wraps in a whole wheat tortilla.

If I had a case of peanut butter I would give it to my local food pantry. With today's hard times and tough economy food pantry's are taking a harder hitfrom people needing help and are getting fewer donations. On second thought, after reading a few of the other responses, I'd give half of it to Sharon to take to Haiti and the other half to the food pantry or a homeless shelter.

I would get a case of our north feorgia apples and go around the corner to our elementary school and share peanut butter in apple hollow. Teach the kids about good nutrition

I would love to have a case of peanut butter! My husband and I are both vegans and we eat peanut butter every other day in a variety of ways. We love to make stir fry with peanut sauce, pb cookies and of coarse there isnt many things better then pb on toast. Thanks for the chance to win!

I would learn to like peanut butter if I had a whole case of it! And if I couldn't learn to like it, I would be making a whole lot of cookies for friends and family to enjoy!

Chocolate and peanut butter! My favorite decadent desserts make good use of both of these :-)

I love peanut butter! Lots of Peanut Butter Cookies are a given but one of my favorite snacks is banana roll ups (whole wheat tortilla, peanut butter and a ripe banana). They're great for packing in lunches or to throw in a back pack for a healthy snack on the run. But most importantly, the dogs... my four dogs get a lick of the good stuff each and every night when my 9-year old pug takes his medicine.

Mixture of peanut butter, raw oats, powdered milk and honey...all folded into a huge ball that is consumed with a glass of ice cold milk....optional additions....coconut, powdered sugar and corn syrup or agave in lieu of honey, dried fruit such as cranberries, chocolate chips...yeah, I know, lots of calories but sooo good. With a CASE of peanut butter, which would not last long at my house, I'd make this recipe, pb and apples, pb and marshmallow cream (fluffer nutter sandwiches), peanut butter mixed with soy sauce over whole wheat noodles with slices of green onions....etc.

My kids are pretty obsessed with peanut butter as well. They eat other things..but they do LOVE natural peanut butter!! With allergies to dairy, wheat, and soy it is a staple in school lunches. They also love it on snacks! They eat it on almost everything, carrots apples, bananas, celery, rice cakes,in cookies, the famous PPJ sandwich(which my older son takes to school EVERY day)!

My two favorite ways to eat peanut butter are in vegan chocolate peanut butter pie and in spicy peanut sauce served over tofu, broccoli, and quinoa.

With a whole case of peanut butter I'd definitely make a batch or 5 of vegan peanut butter filled chocolate cookies! I have so many yummy recipes that use peanut butter, so I'd make mostly cookies to send to my friend stationed in Afghanistan. With a whole case I could make him enough to share with his whole unit!!
