Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

I had such success with my slow cooker french dip the other week, I couldn’t wait until I had the opportunity to break out my slow cooker again for another dish. My trip to Dallas put me in the mood for some barbecue and I decided to try and adapt one of my favorite recipes to the slow cooker: pulled pork. Pulled pork is traditionally ... Read More »

Creative cake for a bbq

hot dog cake

When I first saw a picture of this undeniably creative hot dog cake, my first reaction was that it would be great to take to a barbecue or other cookout where real hot dogs are already on the menu. The cake is made by sculpting a pound cake into a hamburger bun shape and laying a generously frosted cake hot dog in the middle of it, ... Read More »

Easy Grilled Flatbread

 The great thing about grilling is that you can cook your entire meal outside on the same surface. Everything is quick, there is little cleanup and you don’t heat up the house on a hot day. Meats and veggiesare standards at any cookout, and it is increasingly common to do desserts on the grill, as well. But baked goods don’t get much grill time - unless ... Read More »

Grilled Peach Shortcakes with Candied Ginger

grilled peach shortcake, at night

I really hope that everyone is having as good luck with strawberries as I am right now. Every basket in recent memory has been fantastic and very few have lasted more than a few hours in the kitchen; they’re just that hard to resist. Ordinarily I wouldn’t complain about something like strawberries being too delicious, but I just can’t keep enough around to put together a ... Read More »

Balsamic Barbecue Sauce

Barbecue sauce is a great condiment to have around, especially during summer when the grill gets a lot of use. You can put it on just about anything and, somehow, it manages to always taste great. My current favorite way to have it is to add it to a salad instead of dressing. While I love barbecue sauce, sometimes they tend to be a little ... Read More »

Steamed Buns with BBQ Filling

I love yum cha/dim sum (and have always heard the terms used fairly interchangeably). I love how the food arrives so fresh and piping hot at your tableside, where you can pick and cheese what you want to eat. My favorite is definately the steamed buns (bau) filled with barbeque pork . I have not had any sort of yum cha in some time and, ... Read More »

Hot Dog Buns

I have never been a big fan of store-bought hot dog buns. I know that the number one complaint about them is that buns are sold in packages of 8, while many hot dogs are sold in packs of only 7, but that doesn’t bother me too much. Who hasn’t over-toasted a bun and been glad for the extra? I say that it’s good planning. ... Read More »

Grilled Corn on the Cob

As much as I have always loved fresh, locally grown sweet corn, I never loved it as much as I do now. What changed? I started grilling it. The sugars of the corn intensify the flavor and it takes less time than boiling! I think I first saw this on Good Eats, but I’m not entirely sure. It has been a smash hit, not only ... Read More »
