Free Book Giveaway - Yes You Can ! By Daniel Gasteiger

August 6, 2011

For anyone who enjoys playing with their food, this is the most magical time of year. We harvest and put up anything from the garden or farmers market, while those that don't understand the thrill of a full pantry just shake their heads.

I added a recipe for Dark Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes, but these are cupcakes I make on the grill. It's too hot to heat up the oven when the outside temp is in the 100's. I'm getting pretty good at cooking on a grill and over a more hotdogs and beans for us. I like to take my gourmet cooking with me. Enjoy!

I added "Great Grandma's Pineapple Upside-Down Cake". It is from the cookbook she used to use. It is old, yellowed, has no cover & talks about "Ice Boxes", how to butcher a half a cow. I used to make this cake for bake sales when I was in JR High & High School over 30 years ago. Yes we had kitchen's indoors back then... LOL I hope you enjoy it!!
