In today’s recipe writing session at the International Food Blogger Conference, Deb from Smitten Kitchen made a PB&J on stage. Our task, as directed by session moderator Diane Jacob (author of Will Write for Food), was to write a recipe from her demonstration.
We had like five minutes to write it. This is a great exercise for anyone with a food blog.
I read mine first! I was amazed that they all actually dug it. Here it is:
Yo Momma’s PB&J
The best sandwich you always had.
- Super-bleached white bread, preferably a store brand
- High Fructose strawberry jelly (or grape, ask momma)
- Skippy peanut butter. (No substititions on that one)
Lay out the super-bleached white bread so that the flat ends are facing each other. Using a butter knife and a momma’s tender hand, spread the jelly onto one piece of bread. Then wipe the knife and do the same with the peanut butter on the other piece. Don’t tear it! Gently!
Place the pieces together and cut into triangles, rectangles, or quarters — whatever yo momma did.
Eat in front of some after-school cartoons with a glass of cold milk.
