    Have Rediscovered This Fine Food

    As a child, I wasn't super crazy about  Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches.  I liked them on occasion, but it was not one of my favorite things. Several years ago, after having some stomach surgery, I had a hard time eating many of the things that I had liked in the...

    Also Pb And Butter, Also Pb By The Spoonful, Also Pb And Honey

    Get the picture - I love Peanut Butter. Over the last ten days I killed two big jars of Jif Reduced Fat Peanut spread. Most of it by the spoonful. Of course, if I am not in a hurry and the bread is handy I'll spread the PB on the bread. And if I really feel like leisurely...

    Growing up I liked PB&J. I liked rolling my bread and then cutting it into little log rolls. I liked it cooked in a frying pan. I liked it cooked over a camp fire. I liked it as a sandwich cut in half. I liked my PB&J. So as fate would have it my middle child is highly...

    Great and Fast to Make,

     It's one of the foods growing up I remember more because it's so simple I started making it on my own very young so it gives that special memory of independents to me.

    I Don't Eat Peanut Butt...

    I don't eat peanut butter and jelly very often.  I find when I am nostalgic for the past, like a comfort food, I will turn to peanut butter and jelly.  I ate it so frequently growing up that it is a comfort food to me.

    Creamy peanut butter on warm toast

    so it melts. Top it -- or not -- with honey or grape jam, not jelly. Yum.

    Grilled Please!

    I love, love, love peanut butter and jelly grilled! Butter the outside of the bread slices and grill away. The peanut butter melts into the bread and the warm jelly lends to the sandwich a "pie" like quality. MMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmm....

    30 Years Later And It's A Favorite

    When I was in pre-school, for some reason I was extremely resistant to the idea of having peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch. My mother, being adaptable, gave me cream cheese and jelly instead, which I thought was pretty awesome. For about 18 years this continued -- I...

    Went Past Peanut Butter and Jelly.

    I tend to cycle through various combinations in a sandwich.  Now I am at that place in my cycle where peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are tame.  It's time for: peanut butter, honey and molasses sandwiches on English muffin bread.

    I Have It For Dinner Sometimes

    The greatest thing about living alone is the only one that has to be happy about the dinner menu is you.  So fire up the toaster it's a hot meal: peanut butter and jelly on toast, add some pretzels and a diet mountain dew and you got yourself dinner.
