1. Peanut Butter & Jelly Soufflé

Peanut Butter & Jelly Soufflé

1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 T flour
1/4 cup sugar (plus extra to sprinkle in ramekins)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 egg yolks
4 egg whites
pinch of salt
pinch of cream of tartar

Preheat the oven to 400 F before you begin (the oven must be ready to go when you put the soufflés in or they will not rise). To prepare the soufflé, mix the flour and milk well in a bowl and put in a saucepan. Add half of the sugar (about 1/8 of a cup) and heat until dissolved. Over the heat, add the peanut butter and mix for a couple minutes until well combined and creamy. Take off the heat. Beat the egg yolks with the salt and vanilla and add to the peanut butter/milk mixture. Set aside.

Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites. Beat using either a stand mixer or a hand mixer with the remaining 1/8 cup of sugar (add the sugar slowly as you beat) until the eggs are thick and fluffy (like a foam). Then, fold the egg whites into the peanut butter mixture gently. You must make sure to beat the egg whites properly (this is the key step) or the soufflé will not rise. Bake the souffles at 400 until they rise for about 15 minutes (depending on your oven, anywhere from 10-15 minutes). Don’t open the oven until you are ready to take the soufflés out, or they will collapse!

Makes 4 soufflés.

2. Peanut Butter & Jelly Pancakes

Peanut Butter & Jelly Pancakes

serves 3-4
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, well beaten
2 cups milk
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons peanut butter, melted + additional for drizzling

Stir together dry ingredients. Add eggs, milk, vanilla and oil. Stir until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in peanut butter. Cook on preheated pan until bubbles form and edges start to dry. Flip and cook until lightly browned.

Jelly Topping
1/4 cup strawberries
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup jam of choice
1-2 tablespoons water
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup

In a small saucepan, combine blueberries, strawberries and water over low heat. Mash the berries and add jam, stirring until mixture becomes mostly liquid and warm. Stir in syrup. Drizzle over pancakes.

3. Peanut Butter & Jelly Popcorn Balls

Peanut Butter & Jelly Popcorn Balls

Makes: approx 12-18 balls
4+ cups of air popped popcorn (approx 2 Tablespoons unpopped kernels)
1/2 cup all natural, no sugar added peanut butter
1/2 cup Brown Rice Syrup (would work the best), Agave Nectar, or pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch or two of sea salt
All fruit, no sugar added jelly (amount will vary depending on how much you want to coat the balls)

Air pop the popcorn, pour into a large bowl and set aside to cool off completely. Make sure to remove any unpopped kernels so you don’t break a tooth!

In a medium sauce pan mix together the peanut butter, sweetener, vanilla and salt over medium heat. Heat until well blended then cool for about 2 minutes.

Pour the peanut butter mixture over the popcorn and stir well to completely coat the popcorn. Once the popcorn is not hot to the touch but still nicely warm and gooey form into the balls. Make sure to squeeze the balls well to ensure they stay together.

Make all the balls and set aside on a cookie sheet or large plate. You can spray your hands with cooking spray to help keep the balls from transferring all the peanut butter to your hands or just wet with water between each ball.

Once you have made all the balls scoop approximately 1/4 teaspoon of jelly and put it into the palm of your had. Roll one ball in the jelly to coat it and have the jelly get into the popcorn grooves. Set the ball back on the tray and continue doing that until you have coated all the popcorn balls.

4. Peanut Butter & Jelly Foie Gras

Peanut Butter & Jelly Foie Gras

Almond Butter
3 cups unsalted blanched almonds
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons hazelnut oil
2 teaspoons fleur de sel or kosher salt
Grape Jelly
4 cups Concord black grapes
2 cups sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
Duck Foie Gras
8 slices/500 g grade A duck foie gras
4 slices brioche bread
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the almond butter:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a bowl, mix together the almonds, honey, canola oil and hazelnut oil.
Spread the almonds on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper, sprinkle with salt and toast in the oven for approximately 10 minutes or until fragrant and lightly caramelized, watching them closely and stirring halfway through if necessary. Let cool for 1 minute. Cook’s Note: Cool no longer than 1 minute, as the almonds will cool and harden, which makes getting them off the paper very difficult!
In a food processor, add 3/4 of the roasted almonds. Process on high speed for 5 minutes or until you have the desired consistency. Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula and process again to the desired smoothness. Add a few drops of oil if it’s too thick. Adjust the seasoning, to taste. With a knife, chop the remaining almonds and keep aside to use as a garnish.
For the grape jelly:
Rinse the grapes and put them in a big pot with the sugar and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat, stirring often, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes or until it starts to thicken. Skim the surface regularly to ensure a clear jam.
Let it cool for 1 hour. Pour the mixture in a clean jar and reserve in the refrigerator. Grape jelly will keep for a week.
For the duck foie gras:
Season the foie gras with salt and pepper.
In a pan on medium heat, saute the foie gras 20 seconds on each side or just until golden brown. Remove from the pan and set aside in a warm place. Add the brioche bread to the pan to soak up the remaining juices and duck fat and lightly toast on each side, about 2 minutes in total.
When ready to plate, spread the almond butter on a slice of bread, cover with a slice of foie gras. Garnish with the grape jelly and the reserved crushed almonds.

Brush the bottom and sides of a 13×9 inch baking dish with butter.
Use a sharp knife to trim the fillo sheets so that they fit the baking dish.
Place one sheet of fillo dough in the bottom of the pan. Brush the fillo with butter. Place another sheet of fillo on top and brush with butter. Repeat this process until you have layered 8 sheets of fillo, each brushed with butter.

Meanwhile, combine the jam/jelly with the water. Warm the mixture in a saucepan or in the microwave and stir until the jelly dissolves and results in a syrupy consistency.
Pour the jelly syrup over the warm baklava, allowing it to run over and in between the pieces.
Cover the baklava and allow it to rest at room temperature for at least four hours before serving.

¾ oz. gelatin (3 envelopes or 8 sheets)
½ c. cold water
1 c. granulated sugar
1⅔ c. grape jelly
¼ c. water
Pinch salt
Peanut butter, as needed
Powdered sugar, as needed
Bloom the gelatin and cold water in the bowl of a stand mixer and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the sugar, jelly, and water in a saucepan. Heat over medium flame until boiling. Boil for 1 minute. Add to gelatin and whip on high for 10-12 minutes, or until the mixture is stiff and dramatically increased in volume. Transfer to a half pan lined with greased plastic wrap. Place greased plastic wrap on top and press into a 1′’ thick slab. Allow to set for three hours. Remove the slab onto a cutting board dusted with powdered sugar and cut into 30 square pieces. Toss the marshmallows in powdered sugar.

Melt some peanut butter in a double boiler. Once liquid, dip each marshmallow into the peanut butter. Be careful not to dip too much or the peanut flavor will overpower the grape flavor. Allow the peanut butter to cool to room temperature. Eat as is or, for easier transport or storage, toss in some more powdered sugar.

1/3-1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup jam (seedless raspberry works well in a squirt bottle)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll pizza dough into a circle 12″ in diameter. Using a fork, pierce the dough thoroughly to prevent large bubbles when baking. Bake on a pizza stone or round pizza sheet for 10-12 minutes or until the crust is cooked and the top is turning golden brown.

2. While the pizza is baking, warm the peanut butter in a microwave for a minute or until it is warm and melted. Warm the jam in a microwave until it is melted and transfer the melted jam to a clean squeeze bottle with a small tip.

3. Once the crust is baked, remove it from the oven and immediately spread the peanut butter over the top of the crust. You don’t have to use the entire amount, so spread according to your tastes. Using the squeeze bottle, spread circles of raspberry jam onto the peanut butter, and then use a knife to make designs in the PB&J by dragging it from the center of the pizza out to the edge. Cut the pizza and serve.

1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups low sugar strawberry jam

Grease a 10-inch tart pan with a removable bottom; press cookie dough evenly over bottom and up the sides of the tart pan. Bake at 350˚F for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. With back of spoon, press down crust so bottom and sides are evenly covered; bake 2 to 3 minutes longer, or until deep golden brown and a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Press down crust again with spoon, if needed. Completely cool the crust, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, make the peanut butter filling by placing instant vanilla pudding, milk, and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl and mix until smooth. Stir in peanut butter until smooth.

To assemble the tart, pour 1/2 cup of the jam into the cooled peanut butter cookie crust and spread evenly with the back of a spoon. Top jam layer with peanut butter mousse.

41. Peanut Butter & Jelly Alligator Tofu

Peanut Butter & Jelly Alligator Tofu

1 4oz filet of Alligator
1 cube of Extra Firm Tofu
3 oz Spicy Thai Chili Sauce
1 big spoonful of Peanut Butter
2-3 slices of bacon
1 tblspoon of garlic
1 tbl spoon of ginger
1 tbl spoon of butter
1-2 tbl spoon olive oil
1 big spoonful of Jelly

1. Heat up the pan and render the bacon, let it cook slowly until all the fat is where it belongs, the bottom of the pan.
2. Once the bottom of the pan is nice and fatty. Add the garlic and ginger, let them infuse their wonderful and flavorful goodness with the bacon fat
3. Once properly infused, ditch everything solid that’s in the pan.
4. Slice the Tofu into ¼ to 3/8” slices for this recipe I made 4 slices
5. Slice the Alligator fillet into 4 pieces
6. Gently pound the gator meat until it is roughly the same size (are wise) as the Tofu. It doesn’t take much. Don’t go after the alligator like it owes you money. Just pound it out thin and flat.
7. Place the Tofu into the bacon fat laden pan (we want it slightly crispy, but not a soy based potato chip)
8. Add the gator meat to the pan and let brown.

While those ingredients are cooking:
1. Heat up the small skillet
2. Once it’s warm, add the Spicy Thai Sauce
3. Add Peanut butter
4. Stir to incorporate
5. Add olive oil as needed, we want it to be a smooth consistency.

Back to the Tofu and Gator.
9. Just as the Tofu and Gator meat are showing signs of being almost done. Add the butter. This will give both ingredients a nice golden brown color. When you feel the Gator meat is cooked enough remove from heat.

Plating:
Place the Tofu slices on the plate.
Spread a layer of the peanut butter and jelly sauce
Place the Gator meat on top
I have a jar of Sushi Seasoning (seaweed, sea salt, sesame seeds etc), so being it was handy I sprinkled some of it on top to give the dish color and an extra layer of flavor.

42. Sticky Peanut Butter and Jelly Chicken Wings

Sticky Peanut Butter and Jelly Chicken Wings

Adapted from Rachael Ray

One 10 ounce jar grape jelly
1/2 cup smooth, natural peanut butter (do not substitute with regular)
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 chicken wings, tips discarded and wings separated at the join or about 17-20 drummettes
Cilantro for garnish

In a large bowl, mix together grape jelly, natural peanut butter, red wine vinegar, hot pepper sauce and salt.

If you are using full chicken wings, cut tips off and separate wings at the joint. I used drummettes so this step was not necessary. Before you place chicken in the marinade, reserve about 1/2 cup to use on the chicken when it’s finished cooking. After reserving the sauce, place chicken in the marinade and refrigerate for at least one hour or up to overnight.

Arrange the chicken on a greased rack set on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes in a 375 degree oven.

Remove the chicken from the oven and turn each piece. Baste each wing with more sauce. Do not use the 1/2 cup reserved sauce. Use the sauce the chicken was already marinating in since it is going back in the oven. Bake until browned, about another 20 minutes.

When finished cooking, baste the chicken again with the reserved sauce (the sauce the chicken has never been in). If you forget to reserve some sauce, you can always heat the leftover marinade on the stove until boiling. However, you must stir it constantly or it will burn.

Serve on a bed of cilantro.

2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon melted Earth Balance or coconut oil
1/3 cup garbanazo beans, pureed with just enough soy milk to make them run in your blender
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Add 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter, then 1/2 tablespoon cherry jam into the center of each cup, then gently cover with another tablespoon (or so) of the batter. Tap your muffin tin against the cupboard gently a few times to get the batter to settle around the filling.

Bake in preheated oven for 14-17 minutes, or until the center of each muffin is set (it took exactly 15 minutes in my oven). Remove and dust immediately with powdered sugar. Serve with almond or milk and slices of kiwis or oranges for a totally quick, delish meal!

50. Peanut Butter & Jelly Fluffernutter Peeps Sandwich

Peanut Butter & Jelly Fluffernutter Peeps Sandwich

2 slices pound cake, about 1 inch thick each (sturdy enough so that they won’t fall crumble apart when handled)

1 tablespoon jelly

1. Place your two pound cake slices side by side.
2. Apply a thin layer of peanut butter and jelly to each side.
3. Place the Peeps on top of one of the slices. Place the other slice, peanut butter side down, on top of the Peep-ed slice.
4. Either microwave on high for about 10 seconds (or until your peeps are melty–just keep an eye on it). If the top slice has gone askew or popped off during the microwaving, gently put it back in place.
5. Enjoy.

54. Peanut Butter & Jelly Tacos

Peanut Butter & Jelly Tacos

corn tortillas
1 jar of jalapeno jelly
peanut butter
3cups of cooked rice (brown or white)
red cabbage
carrot
onion (go with your preference for what you like raw – I picked yellow)
green apple
1 tsp fresh minced ginger
1 tsp of green curry paste (adjust to heat preference or sriracha could do fine)
1 tbsp of lime juice
cilantro, if you don’t have the “it tastes like soap” gene (which is an actual gene, FYI.)

First, get the rice cooking. If you have a bit of turmeric add just a dash for color.

Next, get your peanut butter and a small bowl. Add the peanut butter to the bowl. I’m guessing I’d just just shy of a half a cup followed by the lime juice. Mince your ginger* and to the bowl along with the curry paste. Mix together, adding more lime or water if it’s too thick to mix, however, this is a spread and not a sauce so don’t let it get runny. This can just sit while the rice cooks to let the flavors mingle.

*Advice comrade: To mince ginger the easy way. One you have the skin off and a piece approximately the size of a soda bottle cap either place it on the cutting board and smash it with the flat-side of the chef’s knife and smash it, or if you’re not comfortable smacking a sharp knife, putting the ginger between cling film or wax paper and crushing it with something like a can of tomatoes works just as well. This will not only make it easier to mince, but smashing breaks the cell walls of the ginger root releasing a lot more flavor. Also works on garlic and even fresh herbs.

Once your rice is or is close to done, start prepping your vegetables. Best thing is to shred and julienne. Cabbage, apples and onions should be done with a knife. I think the large setting on a four-sided cheese grater do better for carrots, daikon and firmer vegetables. What I wrote down is what I used, but any vegetables you like can go in. Just keep it raw if you can, you’ll want the crunch.

Organize a station for setting up the tacos. Heat the tortillas in a microwave real quick to keep them pliant (5 sec for each tortilla. ) Spread your peanut base across the middle of the taco. Next lay down the jalapeno jelly. Rice and vegetables plus cilantro and you’re good.
