Recipe Idea: Griddle-Roasted Coffee

  If you have never had a fresh cup of coffee, right from the roaster - well, you're in for a treat.  Today we are going to discuss how to roast your own coffee using a Little Griddle brand griddle.  It takes a little bit more effort than driving to the grocery store and buying a can of coffee, but it might take less time, it is a lot more fun, and the taste is far, far better than anything you can buy in a store. For starters, let's explore the "why" of roasting coffee on an outdoor griddle and grill.  In part, this is just worth trying "because you can."  Roasting your own coffee is a fun trick that...

Recipe Idea: "Cilantro Pepper Corncakes"

This is a fun and very simple recipe, and the results are extremely tasty.  These corncakes are the perfect light lunch, or they make an excellent side dish to a larger meal - they would be amazing next to some chile-braised short ribs.  The recipe was written for a cool blog called Pardon the Dog Hair, and there are a lot of recipes on this site that look like they would adapt really well to the griddle.  Even serious griddlers cook a few things in the house though, so you should visit and try all of them.

Recipe Idea: Reuben Sandwiches (And Gluten-Free Veggie Reubens!)

Tonight, like a lot of America, we at Little Griddle are watching basketball.  The games will be great, but there are a few creature comforts that make watching sports better - a great couch, a frosty beverage, a giant high-definition screen.... and a fantastic sandwich.  Tonight, we'll use halftime to make something special. In this case, special refers to something truly easy, and very tasty - a riff on the classic Reuben sandwich.  This sandwich, usually found grilled in delis, lends itself very well to the griddle, and comes together in no time.  Usually though, the deli Reuben is heavy and greasy, so we're out to create one that you can enjoy without regretting it later. To start this party,...
