Summer is officially in full swing, and that means it’s time for Summer Grilling. Everyone knows how to work a grill when it comes to the main course, but what about dessert? Here’s a great video that shows a quick, easy, and delicious preparation of Grilled Peaches topped with a Raspberry Sauce and served with some refreshing ice-cream and nicely warmed Grilled Pound Cake, yum!
Don’t forget, if you don’t have an outdoor grill that’s not a problem. Indoor grills and grill plates work just as well. You can get your grill marks inside, and enjoy your delicious grilled feast outside.
So Father’s Day is this weekend but let’s face it, people, Dad’s are good for more than just wearing ties, grilling burgers, and fixing things with their tools. Why not get Dad his very own Secret Ingredients Cookbook.
Whether it’s a Keepsake, or an Heirloom Cookbook, Dad will love it. You can fill it with family pictures, and all of Dad’s favorite recipes. My future father-in-law makes an awesome Gumbo, and my own father is great when it comes to spaghetti. So that covers the things Dad loves to make, but of course there’s always plenty of room for the things he likes to eat too. His wife’s famous pound cake, his mother’s cheesy macaroni and cheese, the beefy chili he taught his son to make, or maybe even the ice-cream sundaes he always makes with his sweet little girl when she comes home from college.
Either way a Secret Ingredients Cookbook would be a perfect gift for dear old dad on Father’s Day. If you feel like there’s just not enough time to finish a cookbook, not a problem. Our Secret Ingredients Customer Service Representatives would be more than happy to provide you with a Gift Certificate, Gift Note, or even the fast turnover of a Secret Ingredients Cookbook Kit so you and Dad can create your memorable cookbook together.
Barely through the first week in June and it already is beginning to feel like summer outside (we’ve still got about 3 weeks until the season officially starts).
The high temperatures here in the Southeast are making me yearn for my favorite warm weather treat… a nice cold fresh fruit salad. I love going to the grocery store to pick out pounds of delicious fruit, and bringing it back home to create an awesome fruit salad.
Melons are always a must; juicy watermelons, cantaloupe, and honey dew are the ones I like to stick with. I also like to add fresh pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, grapes, and a few sliced bananas. I chop up all of the fruit into a large bowl and pour on just a few splashes of orange juice. Sometimes I eat it as soon as I finish making it, but it always taste that much better after it’s cooled in the refrigerator for a few hours.
Fruit salads are a great healthy meal option for breakfast, lunch, a snack or even dessert. To increase its level of “dessertitude” add some plain or vanilla flavored yogurt or ice cream and you’ll be sure to have the perfect treat to cool you off on those warm days.
