IT’S PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!

If you’ve been wondering why Cannella Vita is almost completely devoid of peanut butter recipes (but wayyyy overloaded with Nutella ones…) — it’s because peanut butter’s not really my thing.  Nevertheless, I absolutely love spreading it.  I love making a smooth little squiggle in the peanut butter (am I the only one who does this?). 

the famous squiggle

There’s something seriously therapeutic about spreading things on Wonder bread. 

PB&Js are as classic as you get.  They’re absolutely perfect just the way they are and that’s why they’ve basically been around since Columbus discovered America (that’s not actually true, I have my first AP U.S. history test tomorrow and PB&J has been around for ages – so that’s where my mind is at the moment).

i’m liking that bread-to-fluff ratio

Anyways, you know what we do with classics around here? Totally corrupt them and slather them with Nutella.  So I made PB&Ns too.  Peanut butter Nutella sandwiches.  Not my worst idea 😉

Also, I had to throw in a few fluffernutters, because they’re my dad’s favorite.  And fluffernutter is fun to say.  And I wanted an excuse to buy marshmallow fluff.  So obviously those were necessary. 

Lastly, the Hawaiian girl in me just had to make some of these on Hawaiian Sweet Rolls.  Because that’s how I roll (haha). 

Tomorrow I’m going all the way up to Pennsylvania with the soccer team, so I packed a few of these up with some chocolate chip Chewy bars for the long bus ride.

How do you like your PB&J?

With love,
Erica
