What you're looking at here is a peanut-butter, banana, and jelly filled hot dog bun with shredded coconut.
I like cooking, but I like putting together rustic snacks and meals even more. I don't know--there is just something satisfying about throwing
together some scraps like that last blackened banana, that old hot dog bun in the back of the fridge, and that last pinch of coconut (that would

Just to get the ball rolling...One of my favorite simple, rustic meals is what I call Asian shepherd's pie:
1)Take some leftover ground beef, brown it and season with salt, pepper, and a splash of soy sauce.

3)Mix the beef and veggies and serve under a scoop of whatever rice you have on hand.
4) Quick, simple, different, yum!
I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone say, "There's nothing to eat in my kitchen," and I've had to prove them wrong by whipping up
something on the fly. What's your best non-traditional dish?
