From the publishers of “Does My Coffeemate Want to Be More Than Friends?” And Answers to Other Kitchen Romance Questions comes an all new cookbook! Secret Peanut: Dishes to Serve to People With Peanut Allergies is available wherever books are sold! The New York Times raves that Secret Peanut is “clinical and deliberate,” and our early buyers are loving it too! See a sample recipe below:

Secret Peanut Brownies


  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Enough peanuts to trigger anaphylactic shock.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8-inch square pan.

  2. In a large saucepan, melt 1/2 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/2 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.

  3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Stick finger in top of brownies to make sure that the brownies are soft enough to accept mix-ins without crumbling.

  4. Stuff as many peanuts as you can into the brownies without noticeably rupturing the brownie surface. Caution is key.
