Hot dogs, hamburgers - pretty standard fare for summertime grilling. WEEKEND EDITION wants to know if you're making dessert on the grill, too. We've been asking for your recipes and we've gotten some really interesting ones: recipes for fruit kabobs and chocolate pizzas, for bacon-wrapped bananas, and even an orange chocolate cake prepared entirely on the grill. Now, that's a visual.

Doesn't seem possible? Well, we've asked a pastry chef to sift through all the recipes. The top three will be tested by our panel of chefs and food critics, who will pick a winner. You only have one week left to submit your own grilled dessert recipe, so hop to it. Just send an email to, or you can go to our blog
