If you are looking for an easy to make snack, a lunchbox sweet, or an after dinner dessert, look no further than this easy to make Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars Recipe. The great taste of old-fashioned PB&J in a delicious bar form. Your entire family will love these tasty treats!


My niece used to sell baked goods at local farmers markets, fairs, etc. She has been coming over for the last month or so with a whole bunch of her recipes, and we have been making them and photographing them to share with you.

I chose these PB&J bars to share first (we did a LOT of recipes) because they are easy to make and delicious. I mean really, really good. I am not a peanut butter and jelly fan, but I loved these. We used raspberry jam in the recipe photographed. For selling purposes, she used grape jelly because it is economical.

When telling me stories about how this-or-that recipe was received, I assumed these Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars went over better with children than adults. I assumed wrong. She said the adults would buy one, and the following week come back and buy two or three. That made me laugh out loud.

Now, since we are baking so many sweets and Hubby has been on a no-sugar kick for “us” since April, I keep one of each sweet for him, and one for me (forget our sharing, our love only extends so far) and that is our “cheat day.” The rest of the sweets my niece’s husband takes into work and shares with his coworkers. Her hubby has become super popular at work!! And, apparently, my niece has to make more to send in of these Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars as they were very well received.

Notes:

• The photos show PB&J bars made with raspberry jam. My niece usually used grape jelly. Blackberry (especially seedless) and blueberry jams are also excellent pairing choices.
• The recipe is made using an 8″x8″ baking pan. If using a 9″x9″ baking pan, bake for 25-27 minutes instead of the listed 30 minutes.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars Ingredients:

• 1½ cups all-purpose Flour
• ½ tsp Baking Powder
• 1/8 tsp Salt
• ¾ cup smooth Peanut Butter
• ¾ cup Light Brown Sugar, packed
• ½ cup unsalted Butter, softened to room temperature

Imitation Crab Salad Recipe

Imitation Crab Salad Recipe. This is simply the best imitation crab salad you will ever make! Serve it for lunch or as a dinner side. Easy to make, this imitation crab salad is truly fabulous.


Imitation Crab Salad Recipe

This is simply the best imitation crab salad you will ever make! We eat it as our lunch or as a side at dinner. We have served it to friends and relatives, and the response has been a universal “this is great!”. Hubby has refined the recipe to the point that he is happy with it. This is one of my very favorites of his recipes. I hope you enjoy this imitation crab salad recipe too.


If you are wondering what my favorite “Hubby recipe” is, it is this outstanding Chicken Salad Recipe. In my opinion, it is his best recipe ever, and that is really saying something!!

Notes:

• The recipe below uses 1/2 cup of mayo with 1 pound of shredded imitation crab salad. After a lot of experimenting, Hubby has decided that shredding (on a grater) is the way to go when making this salad. It is easier than chopping.

• If you chop your imitation crab (which we have done in the past on this recipe), you may want to cut down the mayonnaise to 1/3 of a cup. When you chop the imitation crab cut it, then cut it again.

• In the same vein, if you like a “wetter” salad, simply add more mayonnaise than required in this recipe.

• You could use real crab in the recipe. However real crab is not sweet like artificial crab is. Keep that in mine.

• Look for made in the USA imitation crab (we found it at PriceRite and WalMart).

Imitation Crab Salad Ingredients:

• 1lb Imitation Crab Meat, shredded
• ¼ cup Celery
• 3 Green Onions (scallions)
• 1 tsp Old Bay
• 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
• ½ cup Mayonnaise
• ¼ cup Sour Cream
• 2 TBSP Tartar Sauce
• 1½ tsp Horseradish Sauce
• 1 tsp Mrs. Dash
• 4 dashes Hot Sauce
• 1 pinch Garlic Powder
• ¼ tsp Black Pepper

Imitation Crab Salad Mise en Place:

Grater
• Large Bowl
• Medium Bowl
