Cooking with Coffee – Not your cup of tea?

As I have said before, I love coffee and I love cooking, so combining the two is a real treat for me.

The first time I came upon a recipe to use coffee in a savory item, I was surprised that I had never thought about it before then.  I mean, coffee has a great flavor and goes well with different foods.  Since then, I have seen thousands of coffee recipes that involve the obvious – a drink – and of course, plenty of desserts.  But, I like the savory items that use coffee best!  (A good cup of coffee is dessert enough to me!)

I just posted a recipe on our recipes page for coffee-rubbed cheeseburgers with bbq sauce and another recipe for a coffee gelée (sweet dark coffee in gelatin form).  Let us know what you think!
