    This weeks weird, wonderful and nutty news includes a hiccuping mum, a thrill seeker in heels and a nutty invention!

    In real nutty news,  a Canadian restaurant chain has introduced a beef burger, topped with bacon, crispy onions and wait for it… Reece’s Peanut Butter cups. 
    The wacky burger received mixed reviews from diners but the majority pronounced the crazy creation a success even if it did confuse their tastebuds. 

    Why don’t you re-create this burger using Peanut Hottie and decide for yourselves!

     

    Elsewhere, a 26 year old Texan woman tackles a high line 840 metres above the ground in HEELS! 

    Faith Dickey, claims she did this completely nutty manoeuvre in order to find humour in stereotypes and to represent and inspire fellow women. Surprisingly, she describes the process of managing fear and remaining calm as being extremely meditative. 
    How nutty! I think we will leave one safely with the professionals. 

     

    Finally a frustrated mum, Lisa Graves’ announces she has suffered from hiccups every day of her life for the past 8 years. This tricky bout of hiccups developed whilst Lisa Graves’ was pregnant and have continued ever since, with up to 100 hiccups every day!

    The troublesome outbursts have disrupted bingo games, cinema trips, and quiet romantic meals with a noise described to that of a dinosaur!
    Obvious hiccup remedies such as drinking upside down, or being shocked have been attempted but with zero success., leaving Graves’ fearing that the hiccups will never end.

    Fingers crossed!

  • Nutty News

    Walnut Guinness World Record

    This weeks world of nutty news includes Buzz Lightyear being refused a driving licence and a nutty world record!

    This week a martial arts student from Pakistan smashed his was into the Guinness World Record Books by smashing the most amount of walnuts in a minute using a nunchaku!

    Mujaba Hassan Mughal thumped his was through 97 Walnuts in just 60 seconds using his nunchaku. Mughal smashed the previous record of 62 nuts that was held by American, Samuel Sprague.

     

    We all have our childhood heroes, but legally changing your name to a Disney character is a little nutty don’t you think? Well, 26 year old Buzz Lightyear did just that! 

    Originally named Sam Stevens, the Disney nut changed his name to Toy Story favourite ‘Buzz Lightyear’ after he reached a £2,000 cancer charity fund raising target for the Brighton Marathon.

    The name change happened in April, shortly after finishing the marathon dressed as his favourite cartoon character. But Buzz was quickly brought back to reality when the DVLA refused to issue him a driving licence! Their reason for doing so was that the fictional character’s name could bring the company into “disrepute”, particularly abroad.

    Sam Stevens has now reverted back to his birth name and said “The name change was never about me – it was about raising money and awareness for CLIC Sargent”.

  • A nutty weekend ahead

    A 35 metre high glass swimming pool? This is NUTS!

    London Sky Pool

    London’s latest property development is two apartment blocks situated in Embassy Gardens. The two ten-story buildings will be joined by a glass swimming pool bridge which is suspended 35 metres high in the air. The pool will only be available to residents, so if you have £602,000 spare you can go for a dip!

    Would you take the plunge?

     

    August is being brought to a soggy end by gales, torrential downpours and storms. The UK are on alert for tropical storms this weekend.

    We are being warned that a mix of warm and cool air could produce small tornadoes across the country. Warm temperatures throughout the weekend will be met with mass rainfall creating a humid atmosphere and experts are saying that apart from a glimpse of sunshine over the August bank holiday weekend… summer could be over!

     

    We suggest you stay out of the downpour and get cosy on the couch with a mug of Peanut Hottie whilst watching the TV.

    (P.s ‘Calendar Girls’ is on BBC 2 at 22.10 on Saturday)

  • Nutty things we’ve seen in the news this week!

    Unsurprisingly, we’re all about nuts here at Peanut Hottie, so we’re going to show you a few stories that we thought were too nutty to keep to ourselves.

    Did you see this?! 164 skydivers break the word record for the largest vertical formation in Illinois . Whilst creating the flower formation, the skydivers hit speeds of up to 240mph. It took this nutty  team 13 attempts to beat the last world record set by 138 skydivers in 2012.

    A chip shop created a 500-calorie fried milkshake… dubbed ‘chipshakes’. The concoction is made by setting milkshakes in an ice cube tray, coating them in batter, then frying them into a crispy battered ball, which oozes milkshake. You’re able to buy the chipshakes from a Lancashire chippy, Mister Eaters in Preston. Hmmm we think we’ll stick to Peanut Hottie shakes in the future thanks!

    Daredevil Nik Wallenda completed his longest ever tightrope walk at the Wisconsin State Fair. This nutty beast was suspended more than 10 storeys above the Milwaukee Mile Speedway crossing the tightrope spanning 480m long. Nik is no stranger to stunts like this, he previously walked across Niagara Falls in 2012 and the Grand Canyon in 2013. Way to go Nik!

  • Nutty things we’ve seen in the news this week!

    Here at Peanut Hottie HQ we love a nutty story. This week, we’ve been on the look-out for some of the nuttiest things you guys have been up to this summer.

    Have you seen Damien ‘Flamien’ Walters? This stunt-nutter gets extra hot by putting on a ‘fire suit’, setting himself alight and going for a run through the forest! We think he could do with a nice Peanut Hottie milkshake to cool himself down…

    In another video that we witnessed (with out eyes shut very tightly), Damien is not on fire this time, but bungee jumping off the top of a crane! Now we know you’re probably thinking, ‘guys, that’s not that nutty!’ Well Damien is one step ahead of us and he’s not doing this all strapped up with harnesses, oh no. He’s just holding on to the end of the bungee cord with his hands, and letting go at the bottom! What a nutter! 

    We recommend that you do not try this at home. Instead, sit down with a glass / mug of Peanut Hottie, as our nutty goodness will give you the same thrilling feeling! #PeanutLove

  • Don’t go nutty with fad diets! by Guest Fitness and Diet Blogger CQ

    A smart man once said, ‘there are no shortcuts to any place worth going’ and the words of Earl Nightingale still ring true today – particularly when it comes to diet and fitness.

    Coming into the summer you may have noticed an increase in ads promising ‘quick-fix’ weight-loss… ‘I lost 4 stone in 5 weeks- find out my secret!’, ‘Ditch the gym and get ripped in 2 weeks with this one tip!’ and ‘Who has time for the gym? Lose 3 dress sizes in a month’.

    Although it is in our nature to go for the quick route, there is no point in papering over the cracks: Yes, you may see results but what happens when you stop taking the ‘miracle pill’ or finish the ‘liquid diet’?

    You will pile it all back on again… plus more.

    A close family member of mine participated in such a ‘liquid diet’ advertised in stores across the country, in the hand of a slim size 8 model with a healthy glow and huge smile.

    Evidently the model didn’t do the diet herself. Instead of having the huge high watt smile, the mentioned family member was constantly moody and would throw massive tantrums at the sight of a chocolate bar.

    The ‘healthy glow’ in the ad was contrasted with her dull, yellowish complexion and hair loss… it effectively is glorified starvation.

    Although she reached her goal of three stone weight loss in almost as many weeks, she piled it all back on… and more.

    It wasn’t that she didn’t stick to the ‘aftercare’ diet, she ate fruit and low-fat food, her body just clung to every morsel that she put into her mouth for fear she would submit it to such starvation again.

    Now said person has been converted to a sensible weight-loss programme by joining a slimming class and embarking on an exercise regime and has lost three stone.

    Although it took her longer to lose the same amount of weight, gone are the mood swings and ill complexion; now she has her own ‘glow’ that would rival the ‘liquid diet’ model’s.

    We sometimes lack the willpower to lose weight and get fit but time is the key. As long as you pick yourself up and learn from your mistakes, then you can be where you want to be.

    Health and fitness is an education and no ‘quick weight loss’ plaster is going to heal a lifetime of bad choices.

    Next time you find yourself saying, ‘I want to lose weight’, change it into be something productive; imagine yourself in six months as opposed to a month and you will feel such satisfaction when you reach your goal, knowing that you have achieved it through hard work and perseverance.

    When you get disheartened and the ‘liquid-diet’ model’s figure is tempting you to the dark side, remember the wise words of a modern guru: ‘Fitness – If it came in a bottle, everybody would have a good body’ (Cher).         

     

    Did you know that Peanut Hottie is the perfect way for slimmers to satisfy that crafty little sweet tooth without feeling guilty?

    It can be used to create an array of low-syn, low-calorie yummy food, from cakes and cheesecakes to breakfasts and cookies. Check out the website for recipes and tips. 

    It would be nuts not to…

  • Easy Peanut Butter Butterfly Cakes by hodge podge days

    Check out this yummy and very popular recipe by Hodge Podge Days 

    I’ve been doing a lot of baking recently which can only mean one thing, I’m happy. I’m not sure why I’ve been blessed with the gift of temporary inner peace but I’m going with it and enjoying the cakey results. Yesterday on a whim I whipped up an experimental batch of Peanut Butter Cakes. They turned out to be pretty darn good, so I’m sharing the recipe. It’s really easy, if I can bake it then so can you.

    Easy Peanut Butter Butterfly Cakes (makes approx 20)

    Ingredients:
    8oz Butter or margarine (I used stork)
    8oz sugar
    4 large eggs
    2oz peanut hottie powder
    1 teaspoon of baking soda
    6oz self raising flour

    For the icing:
    2 big scoops of Betty Crocker vanilla buttercream style icing
    2 heaped dessert spoons of Chocolate Peanut butter hottie

    Method:
    1. Beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy and the stir in the eggs.
    2. Carefully fold through the peanut hottie powder, baking soda and self raising flour until combined.
    3. Dollop into cake cases, there should be enough to make about 20 buns.
    4. Bake in a preheated oven at 180c for 15 minutes. Once cooked leave to cool.
    5. To make the icing (yes this is cheaty, but you can make your own buttercream if you want), beat the buttercream until soft and thoroughly mix in the chocolate peanut hottie powder, add a drop of hot water if it feels too stiff.
    6. Carefully cut a circle out of the top of each of your cooled cakes, cut the circle in two, dollop a teaspoon of buttercream into the hole and top with the halves to make them look like butterfly wings.

    Resist the temptation to eat them all in one go.

    So there you have it, really, really easy peanut butter cakes, they’re something that would be great to bake with children, or just by yourself if you’re in your happy place like me.
