How do you know when you are a grown up?

Is it when you start drinking coffee? Maybe it’s when you start doing your own laundry or when you move out of your parents house? How about when you learn to cook fancy meals?

But maybe you aren’t grown up until you get married? Maybe you have to get a big kid job in the city and own a ritzy car and house.

Who has the answer?

Even if you do, don’t tell me.  You’ll ruin my fun.

See I think I’m still a kid at heart and I’d like to remain that way for a while.  I’m happy making other people happy.  If that involves  making fancy pies and exotic banana bread, then great.  But I could always be happy with a giant bowl of tomato soup or a peanut butter, jelly, and banana sandwich.

Comfort food love. Kid style.

Confession: sometimes I put marshmallows in the microwave when I don’t have a fire.  This is entertaining only for about 10 seconds because they expand to look like balloons. However, they don’t have that crispy brown roast flavor like when you put them over a fire.

But it’s Fall now, so I can make s’mores that are perfectly golden and warm.

Plus, I was kinda feeling fancy and made Homemade Cinnamon Graham Crackers

But I felt like I wanted something a little more grown up than your typical s’more.

So I made an Elvis S’more topped with gooey peanut butter, bananas, chocolate, and a marshmallow.

The next s’more was Dark Chocolate raspberry topped with raspberry jam, bananas, dark chocolate and a marshmallow.

Holy love,  it was incredible.  Someone pinch me.

I should set up a S’more stand.  S’mores for sale! Only 1 Dollar!

I’d bet you’d stop at my S’more stand.  I’d even give you a glass of ice cold milk for free.

Feel free to be a kid again, but you know one of those grown up kids.  Promise you won’t be disappointed.

Homemade Cinnamon Graham Crackers

Adapted from Smitten Kitchen

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour, plus more

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed

1 teaspoon (6 grams) baking soda

3/4 teaspoon sea salt

6 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup honey

6 tablespoons of milk

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

1 tsp of cinnamon

Topping
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

See Smitten Kitchen’s website on how to make crackers.  It seems complicated but it’s not, you just need a little bit of time. I rolled out my dough and used cookie cutters for the heart shape and then baked as directed.  Super fun!

For Elvis S’mores: spread one side with a teaspoon of peanut butter, two banana slices, a roasted marshmallow and chocolate bar.

For Dark Chocolate raspberry S’mores: Top one side with raspberry jam, one with dark chocolate bar, a roasted marshmallows and banana slices if you’d like.

If you don’t have the time, settle for the store bought crackers. The ones from Trader Joes are to die for.

Do you have a special way of making s’mores? What’s your favorite graham cracker flavor?
