APPLE PIE (hot with vanilla ice cream !)

Apple Crisp has fall written all over it. Pair it with whipped cream or some vanilla ice cream.

With steak, I say Strawberry cheesecake!

Strawberry pie.

Pavlova.......topped with cream, strawberries, passionfruit and kiwi fruit and banana. You can use all or either of those fruits.AND grated chocolate. Great at any BBQ. Very easy to make, you can get the pav mix ready in those little eggs, just follow instructions and top with the cream and fruit and chocolate. Voila!

Chocolate and vanilla with cherries..
apple pie with wipped cream/or vanilla ice cream

ever body loves pineapple up side down cake or banana pudding, sweet potato pie if you don't know how to make it just go to the store an buy one when asked did you make it don't lie just smile an say no but if you show me next time i will

A nice fruit salad goes always well with any BBQ

As a steak lover myself, I would bring either lemon cream pie or Boston creme pie. Also for a last resort seven layer (Chocolate) cake from an Italian bakery. A bottle of SantaMargarita wine, and a bouquet of flowers. This shall win you over with your new friends!!! Bon Apetite.


12 oz semi sweet chocolate
1/4 C Bailey’s
1/4 C heavy cream
2 egg yolks
1 Tbsp. butter

Melt chocolate in a heavy pan on very low temp. Whisk in Bailey’s and heavy cream. Whisk in yolks one at a tim; then whisk in butter. Mixture will start to thicken; refrigerate overnight or until firm.

Roll into small balls. Dust with xxx sugar or cocoa or chopped nuts or whatever you want. (I did toasted hazlenuts)

Yield: 16.

Caramel Drizzled Baked Apples

? 4 Granny Smith apples
? 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
? 1/4 cup dried cherries
? 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
? 4 teaspoons butter
? 4 tablespoons caramel sauce, warmed

Preheat oven to 350°. Core Granny Smith apples (leaving the bottom intact) and set aside. In a small bowl combine chopped walnuts, dried cherries and cinnamon and stir until combined. Stuff each cored apple with equally divided walnut mixture and top each with 1 teaspoon of butter. Place apples on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 50-60 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove apples from oven and drizzle each apple with about 1 tbsp of warm Caramel Sauce and serve immediately.

Cranberry Bliss Bars -- like Starbucks

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
3 eggs
1? tsp vanilla
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1? cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup diced dried cranberries
6 o. white chocolate, cut into chunks

4 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
4 tsps lemon juice
? tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup diced dried cranberries

Drizzled Icing
? cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. milk
2 tsp vegetable shortening

1. Preheat oven to 350oF.

2. Make cake by beating butter and brown sugar together with an electric mixer until smooth. Add eggs, vanilla, ginger, and salt and beat well. Gradually mix in flour until smooth. Mix 3/4 cup diced dried cranberries and white chocolate into the batter by hand. Pour batter into a well-greased 9x13” baking pan. Use a spatula to spread the batter evenly across the pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until cake is light brown on the edges. Allow cake to cool.

3. Make frosting by combining softened cream cheese, 3 cups powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. When the cake has cooled, use a spatula to spread frosting over the top of the cake.

4. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of diced cranberries over the frosting on the cake.

5. Whisk together 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon milk, and shortening. Drizzle icing over the cranberries in a sweeping motion or use a pastry bag with a fine tip to drizzle frosting across the top of the cake.

6. Allow cake to sit for several hours, then slice the cake lengthwise (the long way) through the middle. Slice the cake across the width three times making a total of eight rectangular slices. Slice each of those rectangles diagonally creating 16 triangular slices.

Makes 16 bars.

With Steak.. as it can be a heavy meal with all the trimmings.

Lemon Meriange Pie.... Everyone should have room for this as it even appears to be light and "exiting" heehee did I say *** exiting *** ??? wel-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-l

Happy eating
Willie Tattle ??? - nope

There is really nothing you can go wrong with. If I was you, I would bring a very nice apple pie, cheesecake, and a chocolate cake. I know. I know. But, if they are spending all this money on dinner it is nice to bring a couple of cakes. It also depends on how many people are going to be there. Another nice thing is to make a fruit platter with a dip. You can make an easy dip by taking philadelphia cream cheese and mixing it with marshmallow fluff then you put in some light green food coloring.

warm peach cobbler w/ vanilla ice cream

I think some apple pie w/ ice cream, or if you want to get elaborate and you know the friends have a sweet tooth, bring enough stuff to "make you own sundae"

Everybody loves chocolate fondue. It's fun to make and delish to eat. Serve with cut-up fruit, toasted pound cake, marshmellows, etc.
