I promised a two-part recipe and I will deliver. As I’ve mentioned, I’m secretly super nerdy and listen to podcasts when I run. My favorite is Dinner Party Download, which is supposed to help you “win your dinner parties”. Actually, this recipe for a grilled strawberry parfait will help you win your dinner party.
Grilling – and roasting – fruits and vegetables brings out their natural sweetness. Strawberries are one of the fruits lower on the sugar scale, so sometimes they can be a little tart. Grilling them makes them succulent and extra sweet which makes for a quick, fancy and super-healthy dessert.
My dad did the actual grilling and now wants to have his own grilling feature on the blog. I honestly can’t compare any grilled food at a restaurant to my dad’s because his will win. Blame that on part of the reason I enjoy eating at home so much. Also maybe why I live at home… I tried grilling chicken once and was sorely disappointed. What will I do if I ever leave? #ItalianGirlProblems
- 1 cup strawberries, hulled
- Greek Yogurt

- Soak wooden kabob skewers in water for fifteen minutes.
- Heat up your grill.
- Thread strawberries on skewer, leaving about 1" at each end.
- Put skewers directly on the grill, turning after one minute.
- Strawberries are done once grill marks show.

What is your favorite summertime dessert? Do you ever grill fruit? Is it super lame I’m 25 and moved back home (again) and love it? I swear I’ll be on my own in the next few months!
