Peanut Butter and Jelly

Peanut butter and jelly is a classic combination. A lot of people put the two condiments together on a sandwich. I personally like to make two separate half-sandwiches, one peanut butter, one jelly, and then eat them in alternating bites.

If peanut butter and jelly turn you on, you'll probably get very excited about the Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting and Jelly recipe in Martha Stewart's Cupcakes (recipe also available online here). Perhaps you are like me and believe that there can be no such thing as too much peanut butter. This recipe uses 2/3 cup of creamy peanut butter in the cupcake, plus another cup for the peanut butter cream cheese frosting.

And then while you are eating your peanut butter and jelly, you can get in touch with your inner child by watching a classic Sesame Street short. This one is a near reenactment of the scene at my house every time I bake.
