Ginger, peanut butter, soy, and citrus are a classic combination in my house. I can't remember the last time I made anything with peanut butter when I didn't use these ingredients together, except maybe PB&J's. This is a really kid-friendly recipe because what kid doesn't love peanut butter! The sweetness added with the orange juice doesn't hurt either.
