As a teenager, growing up a bright green Chillicothe Manor house was some of the
best times in my life.

Full of the easy, fun filled, life that youth offers up so readily.  Filled with friends,
family, pets, and food.

Speaking of food, I remember, one of my childhood friends lived right across the
street in a red house.  Chuck.

Chuck simply loved peanut butter. His entire teenage growth years were fueled by
peanut butter straight up and on sandwiches.  He invented new ways to eat peanut
butter, that up until Chuck, weren't even in existence.  Now I see them
everywhere.  Peanut butter, jelly and banana slices.  Peanut butter, honey, and
jelly.  Peanut butter and bologna. Mash potatoes and peanut butter. Bacon and
peanut butter.

Chuck declared peanut butter was best served with a side of Saturday afternoon  
TV.  In those days, Saturday afternoon TV consisted of  Godzilla and other sci-fi
movies.  What a way to pass your time, huh?

Along towards late afternoon, before the evening would begin, we would gather on
Chuck's front porch feeding our brains with Mad Magazines, Isaac Asimov's
Science Fiction, and a variety of comics.  Yes, of course, the girls would be
reading Tiger Beat.

I will never forget Chuck's insane love of peanut butter.  He was a great kid.  
Peanut butter, sci-fi, and Mad Magazines.  Hey, Chuck, how's the Coast Guard
treatin ya?

Now, here are some free peanut butter recipes taken from handwritten recipes
found in journals, recipe boxes, off napkins and any place old recipes hide.

This page is decated to Chuck Miller and those of you who love peanut butter.
