As a child I always liked to play with my food.  Actually I didn’t make towers with them, but rather fiddled around with my food.  I never felt much like eating nourishing dishes – I’m sure it was due to the fact I basically lived on candy.  Who could be hungry with a belly load of sugar?

I’ve always been a chocoholic, but over the past couple of years I’ve tried to curb that craving a bit. However sometimes you just have to give in to temptation.

With Father’s Day quickly approaching and the warm weather starting to settle in around the Midwest I thought this would be an ideal recipe to share.
