Burrata Bruschetta with Figs

Rating: 4.71 stars
I can't guarantee you'll be able to find Burrata and fresh Black Mission figs, but if you can, you really must give this a try. I'll tell you right now that there really isn't a substitute for this heavenly cheese.

Grilled Fruit Kabobs

Rating: 4.13 stars
A delicious summer dessert, especially when you are grilling outside already. You can have these cooking while you are enjoying your burgers or steaks! Excellent over vanilla ice cream.

Campfire Banana Splits

Rating: 4.52 stars
This was a recipe from my old Girl Scouting days. A very easy recipe for all ages that needs little adult supervision. Great for sleep-overs and backyard camping trips.

Brazilian Grilled Pineapple

Rating: 4.84 stars
Favorite at a Brazilian steakhouse in Dallas. Not sure if this is the exact recipe they use but it tastes very close. Great side for kabobs and steak.

Sweet Grilled Peaches

Rating: 4.27 stars
Peaches are spruced up with a little honey and a dash of cinnamon before being packaged into foil and cooked on the grill. As my husband says, these taste like a peach cobbler without the crust!

Grilled Blue Cheese Pears

Rating: 4.29 stars
Had some pears that needed to be used up, so we threw them on the BBQ. They taste great with pork chops (a little like an applesauce texture!) or even to accompany BBQ buffalo wings! The blue cheese is a nice pairing!

Barbequed Pineapple

Rating: 4.36 stars
Barbecued Pineapple! Serve in a bowl or a banana boat with pineapple on either side and a scoop of ice cream or two on top and drizzled with juice glaze. You may substitute juice (1/2 cup) for the sugar and rum part of the marinade.

Grilled Pineapple Mango Salsa

Rating: 4.31 stars
This salsa is so easy to make and versatile too. Add what you like, leave out what you don't like. It should taste as fresh as summer! Great with fish, chicken, pork, chips, or just with a spoon! This is a do ahead recipe for sure. It taste better the next day. Play with this salsa, I have added grapes, apples, dried cranberries, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, watermelon; just balance sweet with acid of lime or lemon. Have fun with it!

Succulent Grilled Peaches with Honey Chevre

Rating: 4.77 stars
The sweetness of the warmed peach goes so well with the creaminess of the goat cheese with a hint of honey. It's like getting cheesecake in a peach crust.

Bellyful of Barbecued Bananas

Rating: 4.44 stars
Throw some of those bananas on the barbi! A scrumptious dessert that will make your tastebuds jump for joy! Try pouring a drop of your favorite liquor over the bananas and ice cream just before serving.

Honeysuckle Pineapple

Extra Simple BBQ Banana

Whole bananas are grilled, skin and all, for a great vanilla ice cream topping. Too simple, even a kid can do this!
