NPR Is Hosting a Grilled Dessert Contest! Sumbit by 23 June 2009.

Grilled Watermelon Slices with Honey Lime Sauce

from my July 2008 NPR piece, "Watermelon Confidential: Dessert And So Much More"

Think you're pretty hot when it comes to grilling? Then submit your most delicious and creative grilled dessert recipe to NPR. They're going to select "the more inventive submissions" and put them in front of their celebrity chef panel to judge. You'll get bonus points for creativity, but they'd like you to avoid "crazy, obscure ingredients" that are too hard to find.

What do you get if you win? An on-air interview with Liane Hansen, Weekend Edition's host!

Here's the official announcement: "It’s summertime, and that means it’s time to fire up the grill. Have you ever made a dessert on the grill? NPR’s Weekend Edition is looking for your grilled dessert recipes. Be creative! We’re not just talking about grilled peaches. Ever baked a three-tier cake on the grill?

Email your recipes to The entries will be judged by a panel of chefs, and the winner will be interviewed by our host, Liane Hansen. The contest closes on June 23rd. Come to our blog ( to find out more."

Good luck, everybody!
