    The obvious ones: Hawaiian, Tropical, Beach, Poolside

    I am sure someone is much more creative than me.

    Ice Cream Socials,
    Cheeseburgers In Paradise (Jimmy Buffet theme - grill burgers, or make Cheeseburger Salad),
    I still like to do the "It's A Wrap" theme (It's in the theme show archives) featuring Wrap Sandwiches...

    I love doing ice cream socials, grill parties, and couple parties in the summer. I always have fun doing a "cook off" between the women and men- especially when the weather is nice and we can be out on the deck or patio.

    I hadn't thought of the Jimmy Buffet one... I'm going to borrow that one too!! Thx!

  7. How do I make the Pineapple Upside Down Cake in the fluted stone? Everyone loves the Pina Colada Upside Cake in the skillet, but the stoneware would be even easier (I'm assuming it's cooked in the microwave)

    Heat 1 stick of butter, 1 cup of dark brown sugar and 1 med. size can of crushed pineapple (or 1/4 of fresh pineapple (Pineapple Wedger) crushed with Mix 'N Chop) in saucepan until dissolved. Mix a Duncan Hines pineapple cake mix with 3 eggs and 16 oz of sour cream in Batter Bowl. Pour tepid mixture from saucepan into fluted pan and spoon cake mix on top, then microwave on high for 13 minutes. Place on cooling rack, let rest 10-15 minutes and then turn out and serve.

    I've heard some make the pineapple "sauce" in the micro-cooker too, but I don't know how long it's in the microwave before the butter and sugar dissolve with the pineapple. You will need the juice from the fresh pineapple though!

    There are two ways that I know of to do an Ice Cream Social. One is to have stations with different things that guests can use to build their own sundae, like chop nuts with the chopper, slice strawberries with the ESP, scoop ice cream with the dipper, cool whip from the EAD etc.

    There's also a "No Cold Stone" show I recently got a hand out on which involves putting the ingredients for each serving into a S/S bowl and mixing them up with the Mix 'N Chop. There's another similar thread somewhere with attachments.

    I would love to do one for college kids and their parents, any ideas?? My cousin booked a show and her daughter leaves in August for college, many of her daughter's friends parents will be at the party so we are hoping to go with a college theme "College Survival".

    Does anyone know how to do the pizza on the grill? Can you do it gas and charcoal?

  15. I do pizza on the grill when I am camping. I have used both charcoal and gas. I like gas a little better because you can monitor the temp better.

  16. I did the Italian-Style Grilled Pizza at one of my June shows. It was a HUGE hit! Plus, it was fast and easy. We also did Grilled Pineapple Sundaes, which let me demo the Pineapple Wedger and the Kernel Cutter. It was a great show.

    Italian style grilled pizza...sounds familiar, but I'm not placing it. Where can you find this recipe?
Have something to add?
