Grilled Banana Boat Sundaes

Grilled Banana Boat Sundaes

Bananas & BBQ Can’t Be Beat!

Posted on August 10, 2017
These Grilled Banana Boat Sundaes have got to be the easiest barbecue dessert recipe to make, ever! The hardest part is gently slicing and rolling the skin to make the boat part. The rest is a piece of edible artwork that you throw on the grill and eat warm, smothered in ice cream. If you’re like me, you've probably made your own homemade ice cream too! Try this BBQ dessert recipe and your kids will be hooked. Because you can customize them, they’re allergy friendly too!

Chicken Mole

Chicken Mole

On The Grill

Posted on May 02, 2017
This year for Cinco De Mayo, I wanted to grill up something a little more authentic than the usual enchiladas and tacos. Chicken Mole On The Grill is spicy, thick, and definitely different. The dried pepper based sauce is full of chocolate, tomato, and chicken stock, making for a delicious addition to any Cinco De Menu

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cake

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cake

With Reese Peanut Butter Cups

Posted on November 16, 2016
After another quiet Halloween, we ended up with a ton of chocolaty treats. What better way to use up leftover candy than to make a Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cake With Reese Peanut Butter Cups. This dense and rich cake is bracketed by light and fluffy layers of peanut butter icing, topped with chopped peanut butter cups and drizzled with silky ganache. This dessert was a little too much after a big turkey dinner, but you’ve got to go big when it comes to dessert!

Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Decadent, rich, and the perfect balance of bitter and sweet.

Posted on November 02, 2016
I made this Chocolate & Espresso Tart as part of a menu for some VIP’s. It seemed like the perfect finish to an already rich meal, consisting of an autumn salad and Duck Pizza. I had a little difficulty with the texture of the chocolate. So, remember when you make your own, to be careful when melting the chocolate, not to heat it too hot, too fast. Strange things happen to chocolate when it’s heated too fast. My chocolate went sort of sticky and doughy, but it can sometimes go grainy, or clumpy too. The secret to a silky and beautiful tart is patience when you melt the chocolate.

Chocolate Rubbed Back Ribs

Chocolate Rubbed Back Ribs

on the Rotisserie

Posted on October 25, 2016
Chocolate doesn’t just have to be for sweet dishes and desserts. These Chocolate Rubbed Back Ribs are proof of that. The rub, light smoking, and use of the rotisserie combine to create the most uniquely flavored ribs that I’ve ever tasted. A crisp outer layer followed by super moist and flavorful pork makes these some ribs to remember. Using the rotisserie was a different technique and it was a great success. Try this recipe when you want to do something completely out of the norm. These ribs will break you out of your rib-rut.

Chocolate Rubbed Steaks

Chocolate Rubbed Steaks

With Smoked Coffee

Posted on October 25, 2016
Chef Ted Reader’s Coffee Rubbed Porterhouse serves as inspiration for this latest steak creation; Chocolate Rubbed Steaks With Smoked Coffee. Chocolate is not just for those with a sweet tooth. It’s fantastic for use in savory dishes as well. My goal was to add a depth to the natural flavor of steak. The rub successfully did this while creating a beautiful crust once seared on the side burner of my Napoleon Prestige PRO 500 Grill.

Mocha Cupcakes

Mocha Cupcakes

with Smoked Coffee & Toffee

Posted on October 12, 2016
I don’t know about you, but I am a big fan of the whole chocolate and coffee combo. With National Dessert Day coming up, I just had to make a dessert befitting the occasion. Mocha Cupcakes with Smoked Coffee & Toffee are a perfectly portable dessert that even the non-coffee lovers will enjoy. (I say this while looking pointedly at a few people, you know who you are…) Topped with even more chocolate, toffee bits, and coffee-chocolate ganache, who wouldn’t go nuts for these Mocha Cupcakes?

No Churn Coffee Ice Cream

No Churn Coffee Ice Cream

with Chocolate Coffee Ganache

Posted on June 23, 2016
No Churn Coffee Ice Cream with Chocolate Coffee Ganache is the kind of caffeinated sweet treat that will perk you up on a hot day in more ways than one. I was making homemade ice cream for a friend one day. While sipping my coffee and whipping the cream for the recipe it hit me. I should make coffee ice cream too! I had all of the ingredients to do it, so why not? I brewed up a fresh cup, using it to help melt the chocolate for the ganache. I added chocolate covered coffee beans to the recipe too. This has to be my favorite homemade ice cream so far. It may very well be yours too.

Pecan Butter Cups

Pecan Butter Cups

Homemade Chocolate Candy Is Easy

Posted on April 14, 2016

After making Homemade Vanilla Bourbon Pecan Butter to celebrate National Pecan Day on April 14th, I had loads left over! 2 cups worth! Sure, it’s delicious on pretty much everything, but I wanted to do something super special. My friend tried a spoonful of the fresh nut butter and said “You know what would be awesome? This… in peanut butter cups!”. He was right. I made Pecan Butter Cups the very next day. They are pure chocolate and pecan awesomeness.

With only four ingredients, this recipe is supremely simple to make. I made everything up as I went along and I wouldn’t change a thing. I will be making these again very soon. Perfect to keep on hand for a snack, or dessert. I suppose you could share them with others if you’re truly generous.
