Grilled Banana Boat Sundaes

Grilled Banana Boat Sundaes

with All The Fixin's

Posted on August 25, 2016
August 26th is National Banana Split Day so we made Grilled Banana Boat Sundaes and topped them with all of the best treats available. These delights are easy to make, and look really nifty when they're all ready. The best part is that the only things required for this recipe are the bananas. Everything else is optional. Build these at a sundae station next tot he grill for added fun, or prep them ahead of time for a fast and yummy dessert.

Planked S’mores

Planked S’mores

with Homemade Marshmallows

Posted on August 10, 2016
National S’mores Day occurs every 10th of August and this year we wanted to take part by making something extra special! Planked S’mores with Homemade Marshmallows! Homemade marshmallows are rich, fun, and surprisingly easy to make. Turning them into s’mores seemed like the logical next step. Making S’mores on the grill, even more so. Dazzle your friends, family, and guests with these sweet treats. It takes about 45 minutes to make the marshmallows themselves; the trick is having the patience to let them set. Once set, it’s the work of a moment to get these beauties grilling for an amazing dessert of ultra homemade S’mores.

Strawberry Stuffed Brownies

Strawberry Stuffed Brownies

in Mini Cast Iron Skillets

Posted on July 27, 2016
I may be on some sort of brownie kick. Does two brownie recipes in 3 months constitute a kick? Anyway, I made these Strawberry Stuffed Brownies in Mini Cast Iron Skillets because I had just made fresh strawberry jam. Somehow this very precise jam recipe made extra on our last batch and we ran out of jars. I just had to use it for something super special, my homemade strawberry jam deserves it. So what goes better with strawberries than chocolate? NOTHING!

Peanut Butter M&M Cheesecake

Peanut Butter M&M Cheesecake

With Brownie Crust

Posted on December 02, 2015
After Halloween, we somehow managed to have candy left. I needed to make sure that it was used in a manner fitting of such strong, warrior-like candy. It survived being eaten for over a week after the costumed children came to pillage! Not to mention that this house contains not one but TWO chocoholics! Anyway, as a fitting memorial of our first Halloween with trick or treaters, and candy that survived longer than a week, I made this prestigious, layered confection of Peanut Butter M&M Cheesecake. It was good.

Peaches And Cream Cupcakes

Peaches And Cream Cupcakes

With Peach Drizzle

Posted on August 25, 2015
It's peach season. It's CNE* season too. Summer is winding down, not that this prevents me from grilling in any way, and in homage to both peach season and the CNE, I have made a portable and peachy dessert that you will love. These Peaches And Cream Cupcakes With Peach Drizzle, were light, and sweet, and definitely easy to make. 

*CNE is the Canadian National Exhibition, Canada's largest fair, with the best and most wackiest street food, rides and vendors from everywhere. It's a big deal.

Strawberry Quesadillas

Strawberry Quesadillas

With Cheesecake Ice Cream

Posted on June 30, 2015
It's strawberry season. I guess that's my favorite holiday. YES it should be a holiday. And there should be holiday dedicated to bacon, and one for cheesecake too. But I digress. These Strawberry Quesadillas With Cheesecake Ice Cream are insane. And by insane we have blow your mind, melt your brain, oh my gosh that's delicious, and what the heck was she thinking all wrapped up in a delicious tortilla, then tossed on the grill with fresh chocolate STUFF (somewhere between a sauce, and a ganache and a chocolate shell), and all of the strawberries. Oh yeah, then we topped it with HOMEMADE cheesecake ice cream.

No fancy tea party, or Mother's Day luncheon is complete without finger sandwich style Berry Curd Shortcakes With Clotted Cream And Fresh Berries for dessert. This recipe was inspired by the tiny cakes and dainty finger sandwiches that you often see at a tea party. I wanted to create that feeling for this specific menu and occasion. Try these decadent and fun little cakes for your next picnic, tea party, or cookout and everyone will be posh and pinkies up in no time.

Grilled Peach Ice Cream

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.
