Evidence of my cooking reputation: I just went to make the tahini-tamari sauce, and I took out a pan and put it on the stove, and my kids stared at me warily. They looked at each other and Abby said, "Hey, mom? What are you doing?" I said, "I'm cooking something". And Bryan said, "burnt toast or burnt vegetables?" Grrrr.
I don't make it myself - my Mrs. does so. But it is really easy. Roasted unsalted peanuts, a drizzle of peanut oil, a pinch of salt, and a food processor is about all you need. She makes it a cup at a time, as we need it.

Peanuts are naturally oily, but sometimes you need to add just a little bit more to get the consistency right. Start with dry peanuts and add the the salt and any oil toward the end. Be careful with the added oil, though - it's really easy to get too much. You can process it as smooth as you like, too.
