Watch as Rudy Shares His Famous PB&J Recipe in Honor of National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day

In honor of National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, April 2nd, 2014. I've decided to share my famous "Fearless Fernandez PB&J" sandwich recipe, it's mostly famous with all eight of my kids and not my wife. While I've made many of these delicious sandwiches as breakfast fare for the Fernandez Clan. I thought it only fitting to share it with the rest of the world now. Enjoy the Fearless PB&J and have a very prosperous National PB&J Day.
