My entire kitchen-consciousness shifts in the summertime. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
The mindset moves from something that is predominantly focused on the oven and range to one that is all about live fires, crackling wood, and smoke. This usually leads me to the meat and hard veggies side of my pantry and fridge. After all, it can be difficult to cook rice, quinoa, or other grains on the grill without special equipment, and I've yet to find a way to manage cheese over charcoal. But an underrated grill item may be one that coincides with the best that summer has to offer: the explosion
No offense, but I don't love your grandmother's cookie recipe. I know you do, and that's amazing. And I know it's more about making them that eating them, and that's nice, too. But, if I'm going to go crazy with some unhealthy eats this holiday, I want that extra sugar to be inside something that I care about. Specifically, these cinnamon rolls, baked in cast iron skillet.
Because the season of indulgence is here, and you might as well make sure those calories taste amazing.
Apple pie. For my money, it's the best dessert to grace our tables and slide down our gullets in the past bazillion years.

Let's take a journey with the recipe, step out of the kitchen, and head into the great outdoors (or your backyard) to create a rustic cast iron apple pie cooked over an open flame.
Anyone who's ever concocted homemade ice cream knows the addictive joy that comes from originating new flavors for everyone to try.

After a long day hiking, there are few things more exciting than the promise of a good hearty meal and dessert.

For many, the great treat of summer is a quality gin and tonic. For others, the warmer months mean ice cream season. And now, those two groups can hold hands as they sit outside in the long days and smell freshly cut grass after they barbecue amidst other summer tropes with some of this: gin and tonic sorbet.

On first glance, this recipe might seem a little too on the nose. Like, crafted just so people on the internet will go "oooooo" and re-pin it and keep talking about bacon and whiskey like they're the first person to ever realize that delicious things are tasty. But, if you look a little closer,

Last week, I confessed my love for the ready-to-assemble dessert classic, the Rice Krispie Treat. Then, over the holiday weekend, ManMade reader Aaron sent me a recipe that combines that munchie with my other favorite easily assembled sweet, the milkshake.
Normally, I don't get too excited by dishes made up from a bunch of pre-packaged ingredients. I have a strong aversion to anything made with a cream of anything soup, and party dips and snacks made from combining bottles and envelopes of factory-made stuff just don't do it for me.
And there's one exception - The Rice Krispie Treat. It's a magical no-bake combo of premade magic: a box of cereal, a bag of marshmallows, and a bit of butter. That's it. It's as more of a textural pleasure than a flavorful one, but for my money calories, it's hard to improve.
Well, except for these. Cause they're made with alcohol.
