Glazing, grilling, etc.

A couple of days ago Dave was watching the cooking channel and saw this recipe for guava glazed chicken. So he wanted to make it and it was wonderful! Ever since he has been trying different things like honey balsamic glaze or pineapple glaze. I must say I have enjoyed all of them, but the guava one is the best. We took pictures of the guava one, but we lost them on our camera, so here are pictures of the other ones.
Dave has saw on the next show grilled fruit dessert, so he decided that he would saute some bannans and put them on ice cream with a chocolate ganache. It would wonderful!!! Here is a recipe for what he did:
2 Bannanas cut in half length wise
Put them in a ziploc bag and sprinkle a tablespoon of sugar
Dave put some Almond extract in the bag too or you could do vanilla, just a drop.
Then put them in a pan and let them brown a little.
Ganache:
Warm 1 cup of Chocolate on the stove
Warm about 1/3 cup of milk in microwave
Add the milk slowly to the chocolate until it is the consistency you are wanting.

Put bananas and ice cream in a bowl and pour the ganache on.
The last thing I'm going to share is something we made for a dinner we were having with some friends. Dave loves stuffed peppers, but I hate peppers. To compromise we did stuffed tomatoes. We decided we didn't want to do rice (mainly because I don't really like rice too much either) so we did couscous, which is pretty much my favorite thing right now. We mixed the couscous with tomatoes and basil with some parmesan on top. It turned out great and I loved how easy it was! We just roasted them in the oven for a few minutes on broil and them were prefect! The best part is that people have no idea how simple it is! HA! They just think its so fancy!

Ummm...I don't know many people who are brave enough to even try cuscous. It happens to be one of my favorite things--if made correctly! Just another thing we have in common.

And, who took that fabulous picture of the two of you anyway?
