Fiddler's Favorite Recipes Episode 8: Rachel Barton Pine's Peanut Butter Delight

April 6, 2020, 3:32 PM · Who better to start off the school week than Rachel Barton Pine and her daughter Sylvia, with a fun and nutritious childhood recipe of Rachel’s called "Peanut Butter Delight"?

Rachel and Sylvia Barton Pine

This mother-daughter duo not only cooks together but also plays together. Rachel and Sylvia just kicked off a new series here in Chicago for kids and families on Saturday morning for our wonderful Chicago Classical Music Station WFMT called Saturday Morning Listener's Request.

Rachel is a Chicago treasure, generously giving her time and talents to countless organizations and causes, and her Rachel Barton Pine Foundation provides services and funding for classical music education, research, performances, and artists, to benefit listeners and learners alike.

Thank you Rachel and Sylvia for this Peanut Butter "Delight"!




In a cereal bowl, stir together the nut butter, sweetener, spices, and any seeds you wish to include. Put the banana in the bowl, smash it up and stir it together. Add the bread, cereal, or grains, and stir it together. Add any extra nuts, fruit, and garnishes. Stir together or leave the extra ingredients on top of the mash as a decorative layer.

April 7, 2020 at 02:43 PM · The beautiful, natural rapport between Rachel and Sylvia was absolutely heartwarming to watch! Simply put, this just made me happy. It could not have appeared at a more perfect time. Thank you both!
