The classic St. Patrick's day dinner is very easy to make.  I like to serve it with a bit of vinegar and some of Grandma's tea biscuits.

Aloha Hot Dog

Yield: 8 servings

We first ran across this hot dog at a Saucy Dogs, a restaurant in Hilo, Hawaii.  Great restaurant; strongly recommend you visit.

They were so good that we decided to make them ourselves.  It's not quite as good as the original, but it's a hell of a lot cheaper than a flight to Hawaii for the real deal.

This ultra-rich chocolate dessert will please please any guest.  The only problem is that it's almost too rich... if that's possible.
