Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
Back when I was a teenager, I found a recipe similar to this one that I used to make for my younger sister. However, we wound up modifying in a way that made it even more yummy--WARNING, though, it is NOT a healthy recipe. Spread peanut butter on one slice of bread (I would use more like 1 TB); top with your choice of 2 tsp jelly (I like the classic grape). Butter the other slice of bread and then sprinkle with approximately 1 tsp. sugar and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon (or a cinnamon/sugar blend). Place the two halves together, PB&Y touching cinnamon/sugar mix. Then, lightly butter the outsides of the sandwich; grill until nicely browned. DELISH! You can do a little better calorie-wise by using a healtier peanut butter (I like Smart Balance) and reduced calorie butter or margerine, such as Olivo Butter Spread. Enjoy!

Rhubarb Cherry Pie
This pie was SO incredibly easy--just mix up the few ingredients--and it came out great! I really liked the cherries and rhubarb, a perfect combination of sweet and tart. I did add a bit more rhubarb as some other reviewers had suggested (about 3 cups total), and still, there was not a lot of filling, so I wouldn't recommend using a deep dish pie plate. I would also suggest serving this pie cold and/or letting it cool and serving the next day for the best texture. Overall, a wonderful, easy recipe--my husband said "delicious!" :)

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup
Very good & filling! I subbed green lentils (that's all I had) and my soup turned out fine--it still had a nice orange color. I also subbed bouillon cubes (chicken flavor) for the broth because that's what I had as well--again, no problem! The only thing I might change next time is using smaller sweet potatoes and adding a bit more carrot, as the sweet potato flavor dominated (I also might leave the skins on the potatoes--more nutrients that way, right?). Overall, very tasty and easy, so I will made again. :)
