Memories Made, One Sandwich at a Time

There’s something undeniably special about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It’s simple, satisfying, and reminds you of being a kid. But here at The Dennis Place cabin, even the most ordinary things become extraordinary.

Let’s turn a classic PB&J into a memory-making family meal.

The Dennis Place PB&J

Gather Around the Table:

Step away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Breathe in the fresh Broken Bow air and soak in the tranquility of The Dennis Place cabin.

Set the table out on the deck, overlooking the scenic landscape of the Ouachita National Forest, or cozy up by the fireplace for a more intimate gathering.

The Art of the Perfect PB&J:


  • Bread of your choice: White, wheat, sourdough – the choice is yours! Consider grabbing a fresh loaf from a local Hochatown Market bakery for an extra special touch.
  • Creamy or crunchy peanut butter: Cater to everyone’s preference.
  • Jelly or jam: From classic grape to adventurous options like apricot or strawberry, the flavor combinations are endless!

But my favorite is to grill it like a grilled cheese sandwich. Add butter to one side of the bread and put it in a hot skillet and grill it. Add butter to the pan for the other side to get it nice and crispy.

It makes the best PB&J it’s warm, it’s crispy and it’s delicious!

Have you tried it grilled before?

The Fun Begins:

Pre PB&J Entertainment: Let the kids decorate their plates! Lay out napkins and crayons, and encourage them to draw pictures or write messages.

The Bread Assembly Line: Set out all the ingredients family-style. Let the kids take turns picking out their bread slices and spreading the peanut butter. They will love the independence they will feel.

Jelly Time! Add a dollop of jelly or jam to the other slice, creating a masterpiece of flavor.

The Grand Sandwich Creation: Carefully put the two slices together, creating the perfect PB&J masterpiece, then snap a pic! #thedennisplace on your social media!

Slice and Enjoy! Cut the sandwich in half (diagonally for an extra fancy touch!) and savor each delicious bite.

More Than Just a Meal:

This seemingly simple act of making a PB&J together becomes more than just eating a sandwich together. It’s about spending quality time with loved ones, creating laughter, and sharing stories. The beauty of the Broken Bow and Beavers Bend State Park adds another layer to the experience, making this a memory your family will cherish forever.

The magic of Hochatown and Beavers Bend State Park lies not just in the breathtaking scenery, but also in the little moments of togetherness. .

So next time you visit The Dennis Place cabin, don’t underestimate the power of a simple PB&J to create lasting memories.
