After a week of house guests, I have several open jars jams/jellies (strawberry/blueberry/grape/apricot) and would like to use them sooner than later. What do you do with jam, other than PB&J's ande thumbprint cookies? Thanks
How to Make the Best Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich
If you still make a PB&J by spreading loads of greasy peanut butter and sugary jam between slices of flimsy bread, it might be time to take some advice from Keena Tallman, co-owner of PBJ's Grilled Gourmet Peanut Butter Jelly Creations, a food cart specializing in peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in Portland, Oregon. In this You're Doing It All Wrong video, Keena explains how to make the best PB&J out there, including a few tricks like experimenting with ingredients and, most importantly, grilling the sandwich.

In the latest episode of Roots, Jason Stratton tells how he went from studying avant-garde poetry in Spain to becoming the award-winning chef of Seattle's Spinasse, Artusi, and Aragona. Roots takes a deep biographical look into the world's most influential chefs to reveal their inspirations, Ancestry.com style except not really. **UPDATE: Stratton recently announced his departure from his killer restaurants, citing a need for a sabbatical out in the great wide world. Dude is gonna read some books and nod thoughtfully at art like whoa.
