I absolutely adore peanut sauces. I have already published at least four other recipes containing some form of peanut sauce, and believe me, there have been many more recipes test out behind the scenes. There’s just something about it that I can’t stop craving.

So when Marc was on the road a few weeks ago, I raided my cabinets for the ingredients and whipped up a batch of quick peanut noodles. I decided not to bother with vegetables or meat, and I made myself a big heaping bowl of nutty, slightly spicy noodles. They are literally the easiest thing ever.

I have never made rice crispy treats before. Ever. In fact, I don’t even really like them that much. At least not the packaged kind (ick).  But when I saw Rice Krispies cereal in a French grocery store, I immediately hoarded a box into our shopping cart. Like if I didn’t buy them right then
