Cedar Planked Twinkies

Grilled Twinkies are a great thing. Cedar planked Twinkies are a wonderful thing. Just a light hint of cedar takes a simple dessert to a new place. You can top them with whatever you have on hand. For me that meant Nutella (a good thing no matter what, but also good to keep your other toppings from falling off of the Twinkies), ooey-gooey marshmallows, crunchy toffee and of course, whipped cream.

Cedar Planked Twinkies

Ice cream, toasted nuts, cherries, anything you can find while be good on cedar planked Twinkies. Just don’t leave the Twinkies on the grill too long or the cedar flavor might get too strong. You want that hint of cedar to kind of be lurking in the background and not jumping right out at you. You can also skip the cedar plank and grill the Twinkies directly on your grill.

Cooking on cedar planks can really change the ordinary into something special, which is why I do it often. For an appetizer, you’ll love my plank-smoked Camembert.

Check out my other cedar plank recipes: creamy mashed potatoes, Cajun mashed potatoes, beef sliders, chorizo portabellos, hot dogs, sausage sandwiches, shrimp and grits and spicy grilled shrimp. For something truly special you’ll want to make my red white and blue cedar planked Brie.

Sauce Boat, Ashtray and Sweets Comport

Here are some miscellaneous items (Sauce Boat, Ashtray and Sweets Comport) I put together by The Homer Laughlin China Company.  On the left is a Fiesta sauce boat in green.  I really love the streamlined look.  The sauce boat was produced from 1937 until early in 1969.

The middle item is a Harlequin regular ashtray in yellow.  It’s in perfect shape and I was happy to find it.  Usually when I see a Harlequin ashtray, they have chips and have been used.  I don’t think mine was ever used.  Production began in 1938 and was discontinued in 1945.

Sauce Boat, Ashtray and Sweets Comport

The last item on the right is a sweets comport in green.  People sometimes refer to this as a “compote,” but Homer Laughlin used the word “comport” on its price lists.  It was made from late 1935 until late 1946.

Homer Laughlin Decals “Go-Alongs”

‘Go-Alongs’ refers to items that were made by other companies to be used with the colored dinner lines by The Homer Laughlin China Company, like Fiesta, Harlequin and Riviera.  Here is a picture of my decals that my sister got me years ago.  The decals were made in 1945 by the American Decalcomania Company of Chicago and New York.

At the bottom is my set of new decals that are “Genuine Fiesta.”  I think I got these back in the early 90s.
