There was a study more than a decade ago conducted by Dr. Stephen Rennard, of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha. In this study, he investigated why his wife’s chicken soup recipe, which was handed down through generations, has healing properties.

Elvis: ‘Little girl, go fix me a sandwich, peanut butter and jelly sandwich.’ Now, you know, back when I fixed a sandwich for him, we mixed up the peanut butter and banana together. We didn’t put it [the sandwich] in butter and put it in a skillet. We just put [the mixture] on white bread. But…the other day, this man was fixing a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that Elvis liked and they sliced the bananas in thick slices and put it in this butter and cooked it…so he [Elvis] may have started liking that later. But when I was dating him [1957-1962], he liked just a plain old-fashioned mashed banana [sandwich].” – Anita Wood
