In Summary

Super Snacks

Pita Pocket
All the kid needs are a pita with two tablespoons of peanut butter, then their choice of fillings. For example, light cream cheese, slices of cucumber, mashed banana with cinnamon, cranberry sauce, drained crushed pineapple, mayonnaise with green onion and lettuce or grated carrot with raisins.

Hale and Hearty

PB Spread/Dip
Ingredients are mayonnaise, peanut butter, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, pepper and chives. Place ingredients in a bowl and mix. Pour the mixture into a serving bowl and place in the fridge to thicken. Use as a spread for sandwiches or as a dip for crackers and vegetables.

Party Pizazz

PB Fudge
Children need butter, peanut butter, peanuts, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract. They need to butter a cake pan with one teaspoon of butter. Then, place ⅔ cup of butter and peanut butter in a mixing bowl then microwave for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the bowl and stir with a wooden spoon. Crush peanuts with a rolling pin. Mix in crushed peanuts, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla to the melted butter mixture. Stir until clumps disappear. Place the bowl into the microwave again for 1 to 1 minute. Do not let it bubble! Remove from the microwave and stir. Pour the fudge into the cake pan with a spatula. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for an hour or more. Cut into small pieces.

In Opinion

I really liked this cookbook. Peanut butter is so versatile and healthy (unless you eat the entire jar, that is!). Why did I highlight the above recipes?

A child can have a different filled pita every day in their lunch.

A child can have a dip/spread with crackers or vegetables as a mini meal.

PB Fudge is a childhood favorite of mine. My elementary school cafeteria sold them as "extras". The PB Fudge was called "buckeyes". I want your child to know how to create "buckeyes" also. Now you know why I have written in such great detail.

I hope you like this cookbook by Judy Ralph and Ray Gompf and illustrated by Craig Terlson as much as I have.

I give this cookbook a 5-star rating!
