Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars

Peanut butter and Jelly.  For some, a quintessential childhood lunchtime memory.  For me not so much….. brought up British, honestly it was not even on my radar!  Still, for most, just the mention of PBJ brings out the kid in them (just like pigs in a blanket).

Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake

I’d wanted to make this Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake, from “Barefoot Contessa” Ina Garten for a while.
