Give peanut butter a new partner

Peanut butter is adaptable far beyond its usual peanut butter and jelly marriage. It can also show up at a brunch picnic or on the breakfast table -- with totally new partners. Bananas, yogurt, and granola are quite companionable with peanut butter. Rather than always counting on the supermarket variety, why not try making your own peanut butter? It can be made cheaply and easily at home. And you'll be sure of the quality of the ingredients.

You might also want to involve the peanut butter eaters in the task. These are simple recipes so this is a perfect time to teach the younger set how to measure and follow step-by-step directions.
