about 10 foods only America could have invented and that is when I knew I wanted to make S'mores.
check out her Facebook page), if there was anything she wanted for me to bring back for her and she gushed about Jet Puffed Marshmallows! I too have asked my Mom to stuff a couple of bags into her suitcase, particularly around Thanksgiving, because, well, candied sweet potatoes and hot chocolate with marshmallows are top notch!
my recipe for S'mores I needed to make Graham crackers, which besides snacking, pie crusts and S'mores have no other culinary purpose. I had attempted to make them once before using a recipe from 101 Cookbooks, which could have turned out better, so this time I opted for an Alton Brown recipe. He is one of my favorite TV food personalities, because I love his use of science to dissect a recipe and demystifying the "magic" that happens in the kitchen.
