Residence Hall Recipes: The Classic PB and J

After doing a little research about the month of April, I found that April 2nd is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! I love a good ole pb&j with a little butter on my grandma’s homemade bread, but there are so many other ways to enjoy that peanut butter and jelly flavor! One website boasted over 55 pb&j recipes! This week’s recipe is number 10 on that list: pb&j hotdogs!
