One Bite Black Bean Brownies

One Bite Black Bean Brownies

On The Grill

Posted on August 24, 2014

When cooking for a crowd there are many times where you have people that have allergies. These are things that need to be considered carefully when selecting a menu. Recently I had the pleasure of cooking for 50-ish people. There were people that were gluten free, dairy free, diabetic, corn free and even egg free! Funnily enough no nut allergies... but I digress. Basically I wanted to finish off the meal that I prepared with a little bit of a sweet treat. I was inspired by The Minimalist Baker's Vegan Gluten Free Brownies to make these, One Bite Black Bean Brownies aren't crazy sweet but they have that hit of chocolate and fudge-ish texture that you like in a brownie.

Oatmeal Cheesecake Cookie Bars

Cookie, Cheesecake, Chocolate. Say no more.

Posted on August 18, 2014

I wanted cookies. I wanted chocolate. I wanted ooey and gooey and warm and .. well maybe I was just having a moment, but I was sure having a great moment when I was inspired to make these! Inspired by the recipe on Table For Two Blog, I decided I needed to make my own delectable delights, with a bit of a grilled flare.

Grilled Peach Ice Cream

Grilled Peaches In Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream

Posted on July 31, 2014

It's peach season, it's summer, it's hot. Why not get the best out of the seasonal produce and beat the heat with Grilled Peach Ice Cream! No I didn't grill the ice cream, I grilled the peaches and put them into the ice cream. This dessert is kid friendly and super easy to make. It was creamy and smoky and sweet. 

I guess I should explain the asterisks on the time it takes to make the Grilled Peach Ice Cream. It really doesn't take long, but the freezing time is where it gets you. I don't exactly have a place to put that. But basically you have to wait, impossibly hard because it smells and tastes so good, for the ice cream to set for at least 2 hours in the freezer.

On The Grill

These are fun little treats and delicious too. I know I say that about almost everything on this site, but hey, I love food. I love desert food probably the best, aside from steak, and bacon, and pork, and garlic, oh and chocolate. Guess I could go on forever couldn’t I? Be careful to use apples that don’t have too too much juice, they tend to get a little messy when you bake them. What’s your favorite fruit based dessert?

Dense But Delicious

*Myself and the Baron of Baking (my husband) had an issue that the whites would not stiffen at all. No matter what we did.  There are some reasons that this can happen.

  • Bowl was wet or had debris in it before you put in the egg whites. Make sure that your bowl is clean and completely bone dry before adding the egg whites.
  • Stiff peaks won't form if you got yolk in the whites, even the tiniest amount will throw everything off. Try adding ¼ tsp. of lemon juice or cream of tartar in for every 2 egg whites.
  • Stiff peaks still won't form. Are you using the wrong attachment in the mixer? You need to be using the whisk attachment if you are using a big stand mixer, or a hand mixer. Don't use dough hooks, the "k" attachment or anything but the whisk attachment when making anything like meringue or whipped cream.

So I was not going to crack into another 6 eggs for their whites and try again. The Baron agreed with me. So we folded the egg-white mixture into the chocolate mixture and poured it into the springform pan. There was a little bit of leakage, which was caught by the baking tray that we used under the springform. I was surprised that the cake came out at all, but it was tasty. It did not rise at all, it was dense, but delicious. If the egg whites had come out, it would have been lighter, but just as good.

Next time I want to dress this up with perhaps a ganache, a caramel top, or maybe some sort of peppermint - thing for christmas. What would you top this cake with? Leave a comment and tell us how you would dress up this interesting cake.

Poached Pear Crisp

Poached Pear Crisp

An Autumn Dessert

Posted on September 28, 2013
I was inspired by a photograph on Pinterest when I contemplated this recipe. I started with research into poached pears. I would have just grabbed the common Bartlet pear for this recipe. But thanks to the author and blogger David Lebovitz, who explained in delicious detail, how to properly poach a pear for the best results I chose Bosk. Thus informed and inspired I set out to make a delicious fall dessert. Something that would warm me up and make me smile even though the weather has turned cold. Tell us about your favourite fall dessert in the comments section below!

Deep Fried

These are a fantastic and different treat. But they’re no good the next day, even if you bake them on the grill to get that crisp back. If you’re making extra that you don’t think you will eat, don’t fry them, but freeze them right away.

Yep You Read That Right

I have mentioned before that depending on the day’s temperature, you may have some issues keeping the smoker cool. If you’re smoking on a sunny and warm day (20°C+/68°F+) it will increase the temperature of the smoker itself. Try to work in the shade if you can. I had this very trouble. It was warm and sunny. The chocolate started melting after about 10 minutes on the smoker. I actually pulled mine off early. My bars were also a little thinner than 1-inch as well – not helpful. But I got what I was looking for. A smoky barbecue flavour embedded in the chocolate.

It’s not fantastic to just sit and eat. Kind of like placing a piece of chocolate on your tongue and then licking a grill. But when you melt it and use it IN things… look out! There is just a hint of smokiness and a whole lot of chocolate! It’s delicious! Amazing. Fantastic.

These beautiful photos of the cake were graciously done by my friend Kelly. I can’t thank her enough for stepping up to the plate! I totally forgot to bring the camera in all the party excitement.
