Date Night
At our house is special…

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on the grill but sometimes we cook inside.

We always eat outside on our patio. We have done it with a bit of a rainforest theme, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound.
Where we enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Our goal here is not just to be another BBQ web site, but to take you from starting your fire to sitting down with your significant other. Try to share some of the fun that we are having.

With every recipe I will show how or what kind of fire to have and in some cases you will need to use more than one grilling style.

You will see that most of my recipes include the sides we did that night. Some of them you will see repeated or made with slight changes. Sometimes I leave a few out where it was just too redundant.

You may also notice that we are just a little fond of hickory smoke, garlic, bacon, Chipotle chili, sweet onions and red pepper. Pay this no thought, as they are good for you…

Most of these recipes are mine and Patti’s, some are my Mothers. I also post some of my friends recipes.

I have included a few of the desserts that my “Crash Test Dummies” work for. You may have seen some of them before or may have your own version that your family likes.

Chipotle Bacon Bombs on a Stick

Chipotle Bacon Bombs on a Stick

Patti and I are still working on a few treats to serve “Off the Grill”. We will be at the Weekly Tasting Event at Craft Brewing Company in Lake Elsinore, Ca. Can’t wait, it sounds like fun with plenty of good beer involved so we are right on it. With us, it has to be something smoked off the grill. A great start for anything we come up with. How about Chipotle Bacon Bombs on a Stick? We let our “Crash Test Dummies” try these out and they were a huge hit. There were no survivors…and no need for the main course. We all could have just eaten these for hours.

Pepper Crusted Sirloin

Pepper Crusted Sirloin

We picked up some all natural grass fed beef from MM Livestock, Wildomar, Ca. and we are doing a lot of different recipes with it to learn the difference in the beef, how it cooks, the different cuts, and tastes. I will say that everything Patti and I have done was awesome. You really can taste the difference!

Mocha Pecan Cheesecake on the Grill

Mocha Pecan Cheesecake on the Grill

We are always talking to folks about BBQ and I tell them “That you can do anything on the grill that you can do in the oven”. Along those lines Patti and I wanted to do a cheesecake and we didn’t want to heat up the house. Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it…. Live your Passion, Ken & Patti http://datenightdoins.com
