Recipes: Sarah’s Place’s Aaron’s PB&J with Bananas & Honey

Sarah’s Place‘s co-owner Aaron Smith:  I grew up in a family that wasn’t quite sure what to do with the stove or oven. For all I knew, it was a B-level microwave. As I’ve gotten older, and married an Italian woman from North Jersey, my entire view of cooking has changed for the better. However, my childhood recipes really do consist of pancakes, eggs and PB&Js! Enjoy my childhood peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

Sarah’s Place’s Aaron Smith’s Childhood PB&J

Servings:  1 sandwich


  • bread (white, wheat, whatever you have)
  • peanut butter (sugary, organic, whatever kind you prefer)
  • jelly (again, personal preference, as to jam, preserves, marmalade, etc)
  • 1 banana
  • honey


  1. Spread peanut butter on one slice of bread.
  2. Spread jelly on the other.
  3. Slice bananas and layer them on the peanut butter side.
  4. Eat remainder of banana.
  5. Drizzle honey over the bananas/peanut butter slice as you like.
  6. Combine slices to make sandwich, cut if you like (down the middle or diagonal). Cut off crusts if you like. Enjoy with a glass of milk, and feel like a kid again.
