Halloween "challenge"

Halloween/pumpkin season is always my favorite time of the year...Ok I mean the pumpkin part..
I had so much ideas for the pumpkin that I can't wait.
We made a cake, syrup and having fun with carving the pumpkin.
But back to the "challenge". I show you what I've made of it.
The ingredients were Pumpkin,chicken,rice and apple.
The chicken was the main dish,I cooked it in broth and marinated in a mix of taco seasoning.
Then I stuffed the chicken in a pepper bell,with brown rice (first cooked of course) and added cheese and put it on a medium heated Grill until the cheese is melting.
For the apple I did not what to do with it,so I had this as a side dish with the pepper bell's
Use 4 medium size apple's , chop them in small pieces add the juice of 1 lemon and cook in a little bit of water, until it's a apple sauce.I added also 1 tsp cinnamon for a nice flavor.
The pumpkin is used for desert,a cake and a pumpkin spiced latte. (Starbucks in our country don't serve those) So I had to make it myself..It's so easy... see the syrup recipe.
For the pumkincake I used a small pumpkin chopped and blend it with the basic recipe for cake,and add 1tsp chocolate powder.

The BBQ Grail website was created in 2007, initially to document the author’s quest to find the perfect backyard BBQ experience. Since that time The BBQ Grail has become one of the more popular BBQ blogs on the internet and is listed on Alltop.com as one of the top BBQ blogs.

Hanneke "The Dutchess Cooks" ENTRY HERE

After years of cooking, grilling, baking and reading other people’s blogs, I thought “why not start my own blog??” And I did, in 2010, but already after a short period of time, a blog wasn’t enough, and I started my own website. It’s not my goal to publish or come up with fancy and difficult recipes: just good and delicious food with an international twist! Straight from my plate to yours!

Kristina from "The Daily Dish" ENTRY HERE

Kristina has been writing "The Daily Dish" for www.BetterRecipes.com for the past two years. The blog covers a wide variety of recipes, but firing up the grill truly lights up her passion for food! She was named "America's Next Pork Personality" by Guy Fieri for one of her grilled pork dishes, won the outdoor grilling division of the National Beef Cook-Off, and her winning grilled lamb-burger took her all the way to the land Down Under with Meat and Livestock Australia. The "4-Ingredient Challenge" is a fun and exciting way to get creative on the grill!

Maybe some of you know me from my Dutch blogsite www.freeksbbq.nl. I have a great passion for grilling, since it is always challenging. For me grilling is a time to relax and to have a great time with friends and family. I wanted to reach more people with my blog since there are so many food lovers and freaks out there! So that's why I decided to blog in English instead of Dutch.

Livefire cooking is about taking ordinary cooking and adding the flavor of fire to it, whether in high heat grilling, low heat smoking or indirect heat for baking. It’s about taking the primitive element of fire and harnessing it to make great food.

Paul Height from No excuses bbq ENTRY HERE

The No Excuses BBQ website was started in January of 2009 as a way to record the author’s goal of cooking outdoors at least once a week throughout the year and showing the results to the world. Somewhere along the way things got out of control…
