Cooking with Gail Presents: Belgian Waffle Sundae Featuring CherryMan Maraschino Cherries!

herryman Maraschino Cherries

Hello and welcome to another exciting installment of Cooking with Gail: the series that is all about me making a delicious dish from whatever I already have on hand in my apartment!

In early July, I attended both the Summer Fancy Food Show and Summer Food Fete almost back to back, and I returned home from each with a ton of tasty snack foods to sample.

Pearl Sugar Belgian Waffle

At Summer Fancy Food, I picked up this Unique Belgique brand- Pearl Sugar Belgian Waffle. These thick waffles are a wildly popular snack in Europe and this one was dotted with crunchy Pearl Sugar crystals, which made it extra sweet and decadent. When I came across this specialty treat in my kitchen cabinets, it said only one thing to me: Belgian Waffle Sundae!

Waffle With Ice Cream

You may recall that a while back I was sent an entire cooler full of Thrive brand Ice Cream, so I knew I had the appropriate vanilla ice cream already waiting just inches away in my freezer.

Belgian Waffle Sunday

The delicious fudge sauce is courtesy of Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, who included a jar of their house-made sundae topping in a gift bag after I attended a dessert showcase event at their Union Square location. Food Swag!

The sundae was shaping up nicely but, of course, it needed a Cherry on Top. As luck would have it, I had a Fun Size jar of Cherryman Maraschino Cherries in my fridge that I’d picked up at Food Fete — see how it all came together so effortlessly! Yummy and indulgent with zero shopping involved!

Cherryman makes an all natural, Farm to Market Maraschino that is sweet but not overly so, and that still maintains a fruity, natural cherry flavor. They’re also preservative-free and can be used in lots of recipes — including in your favorite cocktail!

Brother Jimmy’s BBQ Announces New Desserts & Boozy Beverages

No matter how full I am from eating a meal, 90% of the time, I want dessert. Because that is how roll.

Apple Crumb Pies Etc
Red Velvet Cake (Top Tier) and Apple Crumb Pie (Lower Tier)

Brother Jimmy’s BBQ is a place that will likely leave you feeling very satisfied after a meal of their ribs, chicken and other specialties – because their food is amazing. But on future visits you might have a more challenging time saying no to one of their home baked sweet treats, because they have just created a New Dessert Menu on which every pie, cake and ice cream creation is delicious. I know, because I tasted everything.

Earlier this week, Brother Jimmy’s hosted a fun Dessert Tasting Party to give bloggers a chance to sample and preview items from the new menu, which also features an original selection of “Boozy Beverage” dessert cocktails. Here are some photos from our sugar-fueled evening.

Cherry Rhubarb Pie Float

The Cherry Rhubarb Pie Float contains Rhubarb Tea Liquor, Cheerwine Cherry Soda and Rum Ice Cream. Very sweet and very strong, if you like Dessert but also like to be wasted, this drink is for you!

Pecan Pies

There are two new pies on the menu. The Pecan Pie tastes as good as it looks, so if you are a fan you are going to love what they serve at Brother Jimmy’s. The Apple Crumb Pie, pictured further up top, is completely delicious and was quite clearly a favorite of many at the event. The crumble top is the perfect sweetness and texture, and the tender crust is loaded with delicious sweet-tart sliced apples. Better than Mom’s!

Red Velvet Cakes from Brother Jimmy's

I am a little bit of a Red Velvet Cake snob but this is the best Red Velvet Cake I’ve ever had. These are just tasting sized cakes but what you’ll get a is a big chunk of three layer cake that is moist and light and frosted to perfection with yummy creamcheese icing.

Ice Cream Sandwiches

These are Ice Cream Sandwiches from Melt Bakery, who deliver them directly from their freezer to Brother Jimmy’s. If you’ve ever had an Ice Cream Sandwich from the Coolhaus truck, these are very similar, with a selection of different types of cookies matched with interesting Ice Cream combinations. I had one of the pink ones you see in the above photo, which was a Sugar Cookie stuffed with a Berry Ice Cream.

Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae

This is a Brownie Sundae that they made fresh for each of us and brought to our tables after I was already engorged with sweets, so we had no choice but to eat it. The Brownie is served warm and topped with Butterscotch Swirl Ice Cream and Jimmy’s Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce. It was Insane.

These new desserts are price right as well. The Melt Bakery Ice Cream Sandwiches are $5 and all other Desserts are priced at just $7 each. The Boozy Beverages are $7 and $8. Be sure to add one of these delicious desserts or beverages to your next dining experience at any Brother Jimmy’s location, and tell them The Worley Gig sent you!
