A purchased cake works well in this recipe and you don’t have to go to the trouble of baking one from scratch. You can substitute Kahlua or other coffee liqueur for the Grand Marnier, and you can use other fruits such as pineapple.
This is a traditional Greek sweet bread adorned with colored eggs. It's not spicy, but it is gorgeous to look at! Read the entire article "Why NOT Eat the Easter Bunny?" by Kelli Bergthold here.
Before you go on to another recipe, stop and give this a try! This is not the famed "traveling fruitcake" recipe—the the mythical fruitcake that never spoils and is never eaten! Nope, this is a green chile fruit cake, new and improved, and sassier than ever. Read more great spicy cake recipes by Dave DeWitt here.
These tender and flaky scones are best served warm from the oven. For entertaining, try cutting the scones out with Southwestern cookie cutters such as a saguaro cactus, a chile, or a cowboy boot.

Flour tortillas make a wonderful platform for a grilled desert in this recipe from Brad Barrett. Two tortillas form a sandwich that can be filled with sliced fruits and cheeses or in this case with a sweet ricotta cheese filling and chocolate morsels. This one hits all the sweet spots for a great grilled dessert, and it’s an easy dessert that can be made several hours ahead. It’s great served with a dollop of ice cream.
Do not peel the peaches. The chipotle chile adds a nice hint of heat and smoke to this spectacular way to end a great meal off the grill. An interesting variation is to substitute Stilton cheese for the goat cheese. From the article "Perfectly Pungent Peaches" by Dave DeWitt here.

Remember this rule: the firmer the banana, the better it grills. Ripe bananas turn to mush, fall through the grill and embarrass the cook. You can start this dessert while eating the entree, and it will be ready when you are. You can also use aluminum foil over the grill rather than the aluminum pan, if you wish.
