1 cup strawberries, sliced 

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup cream cheese, room temperature

2-3 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Spread cream cheese on 4 slices of bread, then top with strawberries. Top now with the other slices of bread.

Beat together the milk, eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla in a shallow bowl. Dip the sandwiches in this mix, coating both sides of the sandwich.

Melt the butter in a pan. Cook the sandwiches until golden brown on both sides. Serve each slice drizzled with the maple syrup.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich 

Serves 4


8 slices of bread

4 bananas, sliced in half crosswise, and then in half again

1/2 banana, mashed

3 tablespoons cream cheese, room temperature

3 tablespoons peanut butter

2-3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons honey

1/8 teaspoon salt


Combine cream cheese, peanut butter, 1/2 banana, honey and salt in a mixing bowl until smooth. Spread 4 slices of bread with it.

Melt the butter in a frying pan at medium-high heat. Place the bananas in and sauté until caramelized (3-4 minutes). Place the banana on top of the peanut butter bread slices. Cover with the remaining slices of bread. Wipe the sauté pan, place the sandwiches in it and cook until golden brown on each side. Serve the sandwich sliced in half diagonally.

Frankfurter-Bacon Spirals               

Yields 8


8 hot dog rolls

 8 frankfurters

8 pieces American cheese, 2 inches by 1/4 inch

8 slices bacon


Wrap rolls in foil and heat in the oven. Make a 2 inch slit in each frankfurter, and insert the cheese. Wrap a slice of bacon spirally around each frankfurter, and fasten at each end with a toothpick.

Place on rack in a broiler pan in oven with frankfurters 3 inches away from broiling unit. Broil 5 minutes on each side, or until bacon is lightly browned. Remove toothpicks, and place the sausage-bacon spirals in hot rolls.

S’More Ice Cream Sandwiches  

Yields 6 


12 crackers, graham crackers recommended

8 ounces chocolate frosting

4 ounces marshmallow cream

1 pint ice cream 


Lay the crackers face down on a large baking sheet. Spread 1 tablespoon of chocolate frosting onto 6 squares and 1 tablespoon f marshmallow cream on the other 6.

Cut the cardboard container of the ice cream to release the block of ice cream on top of a work surface. Using a knife, slice the ice cream into squares that will fit the crackers. Lay each square of ice cream onto the crackers with the chocolate frosting. Now, take the marshmallow sides (face down) and place over the ice cream, pressing down a little, forming the sandwiches. 

Freeze immediately for at least 4 hours. Then, you can wrap them in foil and place in a freezer bag in the freezer.
