The World's Greatest Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

The night I gave birth to Chloe all I wanted afterwards was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Call me a girl with simple taste, but it's true -- I only craved thick, sliced sandwich bread, toasted and slathered with tons of smooth peanut butter and fresh strawberry preserves. I forgot one thing. It had to be made in a waffle iron!

If you've never had a PB&J made this way, you are missing out. I literally dreamed about having this "push" sandwich for weeks prior to Chloe arriving. Hours after she was born and resting in my arms, I gobbled up not one, but two. After all, I felt like I had more than earned it!

When you want to impress someone with your incredible culinary skills, whip up one of these ooeey-gooey, delectable treats. They will definitely say that you indeed made........
