Marinated Beef Kebabs

Do you know Matt Armendariz? You probably do. He’s the super creative and super talented force behind Matt Bites. He’s a fellow Texan. A fabulous photographer. And he just released his cookbook, On a Stick! It’s a fun book full of fun food by a fun guy. Skewered appetizers. Stuck entrees. Impaled desserts. (I should bust out the thesaurus.)

We got the chance to hang with Matt at Food Blog Camp down in Mexico this passed January. His photography session (and Adam’s styling session) were actually the reason we signed up. The baby-free unlimited margaritas, ceviche, and guacamole were just a bonus :) Matt & Adam are great peoples – if you ever get a chance to spend 5 minutes in a room with them, go for it.

On a Stick!

Put food on a stick and people smile. It brings memories of carnivals, county and state fairs, and if you’re a Houstonian: The Rodeo. Back in my pre-Foodie Bride days, I actually snagged a Best Dish with Strawberry Shortcake Kebabs: alternating skewered cubes of angel food cake & strawberries. People went nuts over it! Why? Because it was on a stick.

On a Stick! will be the funnest cookbook that you’ll own. You’ve got your classics, corn dogs and caramel apples, but the real genius is in the unique, creative twists on foods you don’t normally find on a stick: S’mores, Pizza, Cheesecake, Ravioli, Chicken & Waffles, Korean Style Barbecue, and Macaroni & Cheese.

Yes, he put macaroni & cheese on a stick. Fried macaroni & cheese.

Matt’s publisher, Quirk Books, provided us with a copy of On a Stick! to check out. We think that it’s such a fun book that you need a copy, too!

I love frozen bananas dipped in chocolate…on a stick of course!

2 Maria May 23, 2011 at 1:36 am

I want a corn dog nao plz. D:<

3 nags May 23, 2011 at 2:05 am

it has got to be the super simple appetizer my mom makes – small cubes of fresh pineapple, cheddar cheese, and a cherry!

4 Vivian May 23, 2011 at 2:57 am

I don’t think it’s available in the US, but in Australia there’s an icecream called Golden Gaytime that tastes like toffee. I’ve grown up with it and love it to bits! I used to chew on the wooden popsticks when the icecream was done… probably why I needed braces…

5 Alex May 23, 2011 at 4:10 am

definitely corn dogs

6 Jessica May 23, 2011 at 4:11 am

cake pops!

7 Apron Appeal May 23, 2011 at 4:26 am

Pizza Factory/Fat Cats Bread Sticks…are they different than any other pizza joint’s breadstick or is just because they come on a stick?

8 Lindsay May 23, 2011 at 4:45 am

Grilled chicken speedies.

9 Sara D. May 23, 2011 at 4:57 am

I love Thai Chicken Satay! mmm

10 Ange May 23, 2011 at 5:20 am

It’s a tie between grilled BBQ shrimp and chicken satay.

11 Jeanne ODonnell May 23, 2011 at 5:34 am

shrimp and veggies grilled! Yum!

12 Fallon May 23, 2011 at 5:39 am

Great marinade for flank steak. I love skewers of meat and vegetables during the summer months.

13 Kim (Feed Me, Seymour) May 23, 2011 at 5:48 am

Now that it is summer-ish, B and I have been making a ton of stick foods! Last week, we made chicken kebabs marinated in soy-citrus and it was fab! Prob my favorite so far.

Then again, I haven’t tried these beef kebabs yet!

14 Jenn Williams May 23, 2011 at 5:50 am

I love the cheese dogs from Hot Dog on a Stick — just like a corn dog, but filled with cheese instead of meat. And I also love me a good cake pop!

15 Lori May 23, 2011 at 5:50 am

Appetizer antipasto kebabs

16 Cara May 23, 2011 at 5:52 am

Cake pops! Cute and tasty.

17 Anne May 23, 2011 at 5:59 am

Never had a cake pop, but I think that they would win! Right now, my fav stick food is chicken spiedies from the grill, yum!

18 Deanna D. May 23, 2011 at 5:59 am

Veggie kebabs on the grill with balsalmic glaze. Yummmm!

19 Karla Gore May 23, 2011 at 6:12 am

Veggie Corndogs! Although, I saw the picture of the smores from the book and can’t wait to make them!

20 Amy May 23, 2011 at 6:13 am

I’m getting into the concept of salad on a stick right now–fruit kabobs, but also deconstructed BLTs, etc. Yum!

21 Jessica Hayes May 23, 2011 at 6:14 am

I can’t say that I’ve tried many items on a stick, but I am intrigued by the thought and would love to try the cookbook.

22 Madeline May 23, 2011 at 6:17 am

caramel apples!!

23 Jynielle Wells May 23, 2011 at 6:26 am

I love corndogs!

24 Megan May 23, 2011 at 6:30 am

25 amanda @ fake ginger May 23, 2011 at 6:33 am

Corn dogs definitely! Although I’m pretty sure I could get into these beef kabobs too! :)

26 Jamie May 23, 2011 at 6:35 am

I want some mac and cheese on a stick!!!!

27 Jen M O May 23, 2011 at 6:46 am

My favorite food on a stick would be ice cream especially covered with chocolate and crushed nuts! My daughter’s would be candy apple.

28 April Marie May 23, 2011 at 6:48 am

Veggies! A great grilled veggie kabob during the summer is the best!

29 jenna k. May 23, 2011 at 7:01 am

I love, love, love the huge corndogs at the fair with some classic yellow mustard…delish!

30 Alice May 23, 2011 at 7:25 am

Definitely a Fletcher’s corny dog at the Texas state fair :) But a close second place would be Greek chicken kabobs covered in Tzatziki. That I could eat almost every day.

31 Vanessa May 23, 2011 at 7:26 am

Favorite food on a stick? Definitely PINCHOS. This is something they make very often in Puerto Rico, sort of like meat skewers with either chicken or pork. So yummy!

32 Meg L. May 23, 2011 at 7:36 am

I love the standard kebab on a stick w/chicken onions and peppers. Although, I also love Jose Jalapeno on a stick from Jeff Dunham!

33 Meighan @ Cooking With Abandon May 23, 2011 at 7:37 am

Probably a corn dog, smothered in ketchup. Or chocolate covered strawberries. On a stick.

34 Susan Smith May 23, 2011 at 7:48 am

sunshiny days.

36 Tina May 23, 2011 at 7:51 am

Chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick!

37 Jennifer Myers May 23, 2011 at 7:53 am

I have to say a corn dog with yellow mustard! YUM! This cookbook sounds great…my 22 month old loves eating things off a stick!

38 Traci May 23, 2011 at 7:55 am

Everything tastes better on a stick! My personal favorite is cheesecake (on-a-stick), but I’d eat it any way you can serve it!

39 jpetroroy May 23, 2011 at 7:58 am

I love popsicles–reminds me of being a kid!

40 Cheryl May 23, 2011 at 8:00 am

Pork Chop on a stick at the county fair for sure!!

42 Caitlin May 23, 2011 at 8:05 am

Mmmmm….I love corn dogs and I haven’t had one in ages! Definitely my favorite food on a stick. :)

43 Kelly May 23, 2011 at 8:08 am

My favorite is either cotton candy (does that even count as “food”?) or corn dogs. Being pregnant I haven’t had any!!

44 karen day May 23, 2011 at 8:10 am

Guilty pleasure…corn dogs with lots of mustard.

45 Kira May 23, 2011 at 8:15 am

I love serving food on a stick when entertaining and am always looking for new ideas! My current favorite is tortellini with a marinara dipping sauce!

46 Francesca May 23, 2011 at 8:17 am

Corn dogs! No question about it. I LOVE me a luscious corn dog with mustard (and sometimes ketchup).

Best corn dog EVER…Pronto Pups on the beach in Grand Haven, MI. I dream about them. Honestly.

47 Gwyn M May 23, 2011 at 8:23 am

I love veggies on a stick grilled…Red bell peppers and mushrooms are my favorite!

48 Jan May 23, 2011 at 8:25 am

I love corn dogs with lots of yellow mustard, but haven’t had one in ages (so bad for you )

49 Meena May 23, 2011 at 8:52 am

Chicken kebabs!

50 Bridget May 23, 2011 at 9:04 am

CORNDOG!!!! with mustard and ketchup :)

51 Lisa May 23, 2011 at 9:15 am

Corn dogs with mustard. Best stuck food ever!

52 annie May 23, 2011 at 9:20 am

My all time favorite are chicken kebabs on a bed of rice with a side salad and some Greek tzatziki to dip into.

53 Kaili May 23, 2011 at 9:20 am

Popsicles! Reminds of being a kid outside during the summer.

54 Stephanie May 23, 2011 at 9:24 am

My favorite is deep fried cheese cubes on a skewer. Yum! Delicious!

55 Melissa May 23, 2011 at 9:27 am

What a fun cookbook! I love corn dogs! :)

56 Amy P. May 23, 2011 at 9:41 am

A pluto pup! Like a corn dog but with a beer batter instead of a cornmeal sweet batter.

57 Kimberly T. May 23, 2011 at 9:43 am

Sati Babi – it’s marinated pork that I can only get once a year at the big festival where I live. It’s AMAZING, and I look forward to it ll year!

58 Jenn May 23, 2011 at 9:45 am

Grilled french fries.

59 penandra May 23, 2011 at 9:54 am

gyros on a stick! I had this at a local county fair a few years ago and haven’t found it since, but it was delicious! Perfect fair food (of course I did have to also carry the tzatziki for dipping, but these were soooooooooooooooooo good! I also visit Matt’s blog and missed my chance there, maybe I’ll get lucky with you! ;-)

60 Stephanie P May 23, 2011 at 9:59 am

Popsicles…especially for summer time!! And end it with a cheesy joke printed on the stick. :)

61 Tin M May 23, 2011 at 9:59 am

anything on stick, perfect for summer party, easy clean up. yummy! happy!

62 Carissa May 23, 2011 at 10:07 am

Can’t go wrong with food on a stick…kebabs, corn dogs and popsicles!

63 Katie B May 23, 2011 at 10:08 am

Corndogs from Disneyland – nostalgic and delicious at the same time!

64 Robyn May 23, 2011 at 10:09 am

Mine would be fudgesicle!!

65 Kim May 23, 2011 at 10:17 am

cake pops are my favorite!!

66 Angela May 23, 2011 at 10:20 am

67 Katey May 23, 2011 at 10:22 am

cake pops!!! I love them! I also have been making fruit kebabs quite frequently this month :)

68 Linda May 23, 2011 at 10:23 am

Probably a corndog, mustard only!

69 Courtney May 23, 2011 at 10:29 am

I’m pretty sure Eric will pass out if I win this book. He has a blog crush on Matt, haha. :)

Since I can’t choose just one thing, I love coconut popsicles and steak kabobs.

70 Laura Louise May 23, 2011 at 10:30 am

Banana covered in chocolate with marshmallows stuck on!

71 Kassie May 23, 2011 at 10:35 am

I LOVE Caprese on a stick — tomato, mozzarella and basil leaves, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt and pepper!! World Market sells the BEST long toothpicks for it, too …

72 Julie May 23, 2011 at 10:59 am

I’ll be fancy and say bagna cauda. Ha! But really I love me a good corndog too!

73 Felice - All That's Left Are The Crumbs May 23, 2011 at 11:11 am

A slice of cheesecake on a stick, then dipped in dark chocolate.

74 Kari May 23, 2011 at 11:55 am

Veggie “fries” on a stick at the Minnesota State Fair. Oh, yeah, you betcha…

75 Avishan May 23, 2011 at 12:07 pm

78 Anne Griffin May 23, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Soy-vey marinated Swordfish and Kielbasa skewers

79 Kristy May 23, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Definitely caramel apples, although I’ll try just about anything they put on a stick at the Iowa State Fair!

80 Rachel May 23, 2011 at 12:45 pm

When I lived in Wisconsin, they had fried mac and cheese on a stick. Amazingggg!

81 Rhi May 23, 2011 at 12:58 pm

There are delicious BLT skewers at a restaurant near me. Those would have to be my favorite.

82 Lauren May 23, 2011 at 1:26 pm

I love grilled veggies on a stick – simple with some olive oil and fresh herbs!

83 Lauren May 23, 2011 at 1:28 pm

I love the chickem teriyaki on a stick at chinese restaurants! yummy :)

84 Melissa May 23, 2011 at 1:34 pm

Beautiful photo (once again). I, like you, love a good ol’ fashion corn dog w/ mustard. Nothing beats it. Also, I love the fabric (napkin, placemat, whatever it is) in your photo. So pretty.

85 Sarah the Cupcake Architect May 23, 2011 at 1:34 pm

Candy Floss! I think it’s the pure magic of how it goes into the big pot as sugar and comes out as the most beautiful, fluffy, sticky cloud – delicious! :) x

86 Anna M May 23, 2011 at 1:41 pm

Chicken satays or corn dogs :)

87 Lindsey N May 23, 2011 at 1:56 pm

I concur, the best “on a stick” is a good ol’ fashioned corn dog!

88 Thea May 23, 2011 at 2:02 pm

I love love love mac n cheese on a stick. Yummo!

89 Hannah E May 23, 2011 at 2:09 pm

90 Kulsum at JourneyKitchen May 23, 2011 at 2:23 pm

MAc and cheese on stick? YES please

91 Sara May 23, 2011 at 2:25 pm

I love ice cream bars. A very traditional food on a stick, but awesome! Although, mac and cheese on a stick sounds amazing :)

92 Melissa Jackson May 23, 2011 at 2:41 pm

Corny dog from the state fair of Texas!!!

93 Kari May 23, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Corn dogs are hard to beat…. but I will say the pancake covered sausage ones might just be better….

94 Leigh May 23, 2011 at 3:10 pm

Gotta go with a corn dog too!

95 ES May 23, 2011 at 3:37 pm

frozen bananas dipped in chocolate, or chicken satay.

96 Krissy Roszell May 23, 2011 at 3:45 pm

Chicken kabobs!

97 Ellen Q May 23, 2011 at 3:47 pm

Corn dogs are delish, but perhaps the most decadent thing I’ve ever had on a stick (at a state fair, of course) was frozen cheesecake dipped in chocolate.

98 Sandra May 23, 2011 at 4:03 pm

Favorite food on a stick…I can’t decide! Does fondue count :) If not I would go for some kind of protein – chicken satay or shrimp kabobs!

99 Sheila Stringfield May 23, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Lamb Kebob!

100 TJ May 23, 2011 at 4:21 pm

Porkchops on a stick at the Minnesota State Fair

101 Amber May 23, 2011 at 4:35 pm

I do love me some corndogs. mmmm….or kabobs…there are so many great things on a stick. :)

102 Rebecca May 23, 2011 at 5:03 pm

corn dog, but I like mine with ketchup – this girl isn’t a fan of mustard.

103 Melanie May 23, 2011 at 5:05 pm

Corn dogs – hands down!

104 Kelsey May 23, 2011 at 5:12 pm

Great giveaway! I’m so torn between two foods on a stick. The first one would be the cheese dogs from Hot Dog on a Stick. You know, the place at the mall where they have to wear the really bad hats? My send favorite food on a stick would be a state fair item–peanut-butter filled pretzels used as skewers for chocolate-covered marshmallows. So yummy!

105 Samantha Long May 23, 2011 at 5:15 pm

Corn dogs rock!

106 molly May 23, 2011 at 5:17 pm

i agree. corndog with plain old mustard. yummy!!

107 Ali May 23, 2011 at 5:28 pm

I can’t get enough of Chinese Beef Satay!

108 Sara May 23, 2011 at 5:33 pm

Definitely corn dogs!

109 Elizabeth Jenkins May 23, 2011 at 5:48 pm

My grandmother’s shish-kabobs-a mixture of ground lamb and ground beef molded to the stick!

110 blondboarder May 23, 2011 at 6:03 pm

corn dogs and chocolate cake balls on a stick!

111 Celina May 23, 2011 at 6:04 pm

I think it’s really great that foods on a stick can be translated to so many cultures. Satay Chicken. Corn Dogs. Souvlaki. I love it all! Great blog, great give away!

112 Allison C May 23, 2011 at 6:15 pm

Fried pickles!

113 Meg May 23, 2011 at 8:09 pm

Hand dipped corn doggies! Mmmmmmm or if I’m at the state fair, a deep fried snickers. I know, heart attack on a stick!!!

114 Allison May 23, 2011 at 8:10 pm

Handel pops from Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream out of Youngstown Ohio – a scoop of the #1 ice cream according to National Geographic inside tons of dark chocolate on a stick. Yum!

115 Sharon May 23, 2011 at 8:23 pm

I love to thread fresh pineapple chunks on a skewer and cook on the grill. So good and so easy.
Thanks for the chance to win this awesome cookbook!

116 Michelle May 23, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Frozen Banana dipped in chocolate covered in chopped walnuts!

117 Bekah May 23, 2011 at 8:40 pm

Shrimp and veggie kabobs!

118 Maryam May 23, 2011 at 8:52 pm

Cake pops! I recently ate a lego head cake pop, it was the most delicious thing ever!

119 Lori @ Girl Meets Oven May 23, 2011 at 9:07 pm

My favorite food-on-a-stick has to be chocolate covered ice cream bars! My least favorite has to be salad-on-a-stick. A couple of years ago, my favorite ice cream stand at the Iowa State Fair was replaced by one of those salad-on-a-stick stands. I was devastated!

120 Amy Martindale May 23, 2011 at 9:10 pm

Definitely frozen bananas from a little town in Guatemala!

121 Rachael May 23, 2011 at 9:12 pm

Hands down, the best food on a stick I have ever eaten would be the Greek kabobs served at my hometown’s annual county fair. I always, ALWAYS, had to get at least one (but usually 2… or 3) each day that I visited the fairgrounds. I don’t know if they used lamb or beef or whatever; all I know is that it tasted like little chunks of salty, seasoned goodness!

122 Maxine May 23, 2011 at 9:38 pm

I love me some Fudgesicles and paletas (Latin fruit popsicles – soooo good!).

123 Jessica May 23, 2011 at 10:46 pm

Popsicles! Yum!

124 Gloria May 23, 2011 at 11:38 pm

I’m with you….corn dog with lots of yellow mustard! Yum.

125 Kate May 24, 2011 at 12:00 am

It is so hot in Guam. That I would definitely have to say frozen banana dipped in chocolate. It is tasty and refreshing!

126 Chris May 24, 2011 at 12:19 am

Stuffed jalapeƱos on a stick for me!

127 Coleen May 24, 2011 at 12:33 am

I had an appetizer of a caprese salad on a stick. Mozzarella ball, tomato and basil. So good and easy to eat.

128 Jen C. May 24, 2011 at 1:04 am

Garlic shrimp shishkabob!!!!! Yum!!!!

129 Lillian May 24, 2011 at 1:17 am

mexican popsicles

130 Lanea E. May 24, 2011 at 1:48 am

I really love corn dogs

131 Jamie May 24, 2011 at 2:43 am

Cotton candy would have to be my favorite food on a stick by far! With a second place award going to ice cream/popsicles…

132 Audrey May 24, 2011 at 5:11 am

I’d have to say beef kabobs!

133 Tania May 24, 2011 at 6:52 am

Scotch eggs – yes, they are served on a stick at the Minnesota State Fair. Yum!

134 Abby May 24, 2011 at 7:13 am

That book sounds so fun! I would have to say my favorite food on a stick is a fresh fruit Popsicle. Yummy!

135 Gwyn May 24, 2011 at 7:14 am

Awesome giveaway. Too cool!!

136 Amy May 24, 2011 at 7:34 am

Corn dogs!! Gotta love them!! :) I love the idea of this book, it looks so fun! If I don’t win it, I’m buying it!! <3

137 Natashia May 24, 2011 at 7:39 am

Kabobs of all sorts…fruit, veggie, meat. Yummy!

138 lisa May 24, 2011 at 8:06 am

strawberry shortcake, on a stick? sounds amazing! how does one get the whipped cream to stay on a stick tho? I suppose you could just eat the whipped cream out of the can, but i prefer homemade. i digress…chicken on a stick, like you find at a Chinese buffet, is probably my favorite food on a stick.

139 Jessie May 24, 2011 at 8:20 am

Grape popsicles. My kids don’t like the grape ones so we all win hahaha

140 Tamara May 24, 2011 at 8:26 am

My favorite food on a stick has gotta be corn dogs! I get to have it once a year at the state fair, love em!

141 Becki Sue May 24, 2011 at 8:29 am

143 Joanne May 24, 2011 at 9:09 am

I just got this book to review and I can’t stop flipping through it and drooling! Those beef kebabs look TO DIE FOR.

144 Eden May 24, 2011 at 9:12 am

I love corn dogs on a stick with that awesome cornmeal batter and a hint of ketchup. Oh boy, time for lunch now!!!

145 heather May 24, 2011 at 9:31 am

Souvlaki with LOTS of tzatziki sauce on the side..yummm!!

146 Ann May 24, 2011 at 9:43 am

homemade strawberry and pineapple popsicles on a hot, summer day! :)

147 Alyssa May 24, 2011 at 10:05 am

Any combination of meat and veggies that has been bbq’d. Everything tastes better once it’s been cooked over fire :)

148 Becky May 24, 2011 at 10:07 am

Corn dogs are definitely my favorite food on a stick too!

149 Jules May 24, 2011 at 11:00 am

Marshmallows, and rice krispy treats and cold grapes on a stick – dipped in a dark chocolate mixed with any kind of alcohol…

150 Jenn May 24, 2011 at 11:04 am

Your kabobs look yummy :)

I have to agree with you- the corn dog is my favorite!! I just bought hot dogs to make them this week!

151 Melissa May 24, 2011 at 11:54 am

The first picture has me-beef on a stick-and the cilantro cream gotta try it, probably this weekend

152 Becky May 24, 2011 at 11:57 am

Toss up is between sweet and savory – either cake pops or chicken satay. Mmm…

153 Carmen May 24, 2011 at 12:32 pm

Souvlaki! I love Greek food.

154 deb_in_clute May 24, 2011 at 12:44 pm

I love a good hand dipped corndog from Canton First Monday! With mustard too!

155 Melisa May 24, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Corn dogs, with cheesecake on a stick for dessert.

156 Carri May 24, 2011 at 12:55 pm

Probably those Haagen Dazs bars with almonds. Mmmm…

157 Megan May 24, 2011 at 1:25 pm

159 anna May 24, 2011 at 1:38 pm

any grilled veggies!

160 Annie May 24, 2011 at 2:16 pm

Mmm, definetly a corn dog with mustard!

161 Ellie May 24, 2011 at 2:28 pm

chicken satay w/ peanut sauce and fudgecicles for fun

162 Jen T May 24, 2011 at 2:41 pm

I’m definitely with you on the classic corndog, but only if it’s fresh from the frier (so basically, at the state fair). My boyfriend takes them one step further by favoring the “breakfast sausage dipped in pancake batter and deep fried” variation.

163 Sara May 24, 2011 at 3:20 pm

I haven’t eaten much food on a stick, so I guess that’s why I need this book! ;)

164 StephanieJ May 24, 2011 at 3:27 pm

After seeing that picture of those corn dogs, I can’t even think straight. I just want a corn dog. So, I’m going to say corn dog!

165 anna May 24, 2011 at 3:40 pm

Any kind of popsicle on a hot summer day!

166 Christie May 24, 2011 at 3:56 pm

I haven’t tried them yet but I think cake pops would be awesome!

167 Brittany May 24, 2011 at 4:29 pm

Looks divine…I’m thinking a curry version with coconut rice would be good as well :)

168 Jennifer Raybon May 24, 2011 at 5:39 pm

mmmm…veggie and chicken/beef kabobs :)

169 Franikamin May 24, 2011 at 6:06 pm

Grilled Cheese on a stick = love on a stick!

170 Hannah T. May 24, 2011 at 6:49 pm

Greek Kebabs- or really any middle eastern Kebab. Delish!

171 Michelle G. May 24, 2011 at 6:58 pm

I love a classic lamb kebob. It’s traditional, juicy, and always more fun to eat off a stick : ) especially when you are in the Mediterranean

172 Kristin May 24, 2011 at 7:01 pm

Corn dogs….Yum!!

173 Jason Unterman May 24, 2011 at 7:31 pm

pretty much any kind of meat on a stick.

174 stacym May 24, 2011 at 7:52 pm

I love a fresh fried pronto pup-smearing mustard on the end and taking the first bite is my favorite!

175 Angela May 24, 2011 at 8:26 pm

A roasted marshmallow!

176 Alexandra May 24, 2011 at 8:53 pm

it’s a tie between corn dogs and skinny cows. geez. best of both worlds. let me go run on the treadmill now.

177 Jocelyn May 24, 2011 at 8:56 pm

I love kebabs grilled with meat, bell peppers, and pineapple.

178 Deanna Moore May 24, 2011 at 9:57 pm

I love love corn dogs, but ice cream on a stick is the bomb too!

179 Thao May 24, 2011 at 10:11 pm

ahhh!!!! i love corny dogs!!! even though I’m from Dallas and the state fair’s corny dogs are delish, i’ve recently moved to houston and FINALLY got to experience the houston rodeo. Of course I had to get the corny dog there and I can’t believe I’m saying this but it was BETTER than the ones at the texas state fair. Best corn dog of my life!

180 amanda in the mountains May 24, 2011 at 10:50 pm

any grilled veggie! delish!

181 Foon May 25, 2011 at 12:29 am

Oh I love Malaysian satay be it beef, mutton or chicken and it must be accompanied by the delicious satay sauce, cucumber slices, raw onion wedges and plenty of compressed rice cakes to mop up the sauce. I always stuff my face whenever I return home for a visit.

182 Santi May 25, 2011 at 2:27 am

Grilled mochi balls with teriyaki sauce!

183 lynn k May 25, 2011 at 4:15 am

marinated steak kebabs with veggies and mushroom inbetween. yum!

or fruit salad on a stick

184 Lynn BB May 25, 2011 at 5:30 am

Steak kabobs with onion, tomato and mushrooms!

185 Stephanie May 25, 2011 at 6:10 am

This cookbook looks fabulous as does your skewers! I’m with you my favorite thing on a stck is a corndog with tons of ketchup & a little mustard!

186 Bergen May 25, 2011 at 6:23 am

I’m going to have to go with roasted marshmallows- they’re so classic! :)

187 Dana May 25, 2011 at 6:54 am

Grilled shrimp and veggies!

188 Cheryl in Silicon Valley May 25, 2011 at 8:16 am

Oh my, this looks absolutely wonderful! Can’t wait to try it.

189 Mindy May 25, 2011 at 8:46 am

I am a huge food on a stick fan. Every year we go to a festival in Eearl Park Indiana and I get a chicken shish ka bob on a pita with grilled tomatoes, peppers and onions and cucumber sauce. It is amazing!!!

190 ana May 25, 2011 at 9:17 am

i love shripms on a stick..

191 Denise May 25, 2011 at 10:29 am

anything on a stick is good! However, I’d probably have to say a corn dog is the fave pic! I can’t wait to see the book and I will definitely try the marinated beef kebabs!

192 Wendy Tresidder May 25, 2011 at 11:24 am

Favorite thing on a stick…gotta be roasted marshmallows!

193 Amy May 25, 2011 at 11:37 am

I agree with corndogs!

194 Sheryl May 25, 2011 at 11:57 am

I’ve gotta ago with roasted marshmallows……….looking forward to that this weekend!

195 Lori May 25, 2011 at 12:16 pm

Marinated beef kebabs with lots of vegetables, fruit kebabs – or anything else on a stick, including ice cream! (Not too crazy about corn dogs, though.)

196 Lisa May 25, 2011 at 12:18 pm

I love a good carnival corndog too…mmmmmmmm!!!

197 CindyMac May 25, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Wow just LOOK at all the Corn dog aficionado’s on here! Many of us are guilty of sneaking to the local Sonic and wallowing in the pleasure a a fresh hot corn dog. Now if I could just learn to make them taste the same at home….
In the mean time I think I’ll just hafta give these Beef Ka-Bobs a whirl. Thanks for sharing!!

198 swanjame May 25, 2011 at 2:10 pm

I wish that tonight I could have Beef Satay or Lamb Shashlik.


199 alyce May 25, 2011 at 3:20 pm

Here’s my favorite: pork satay with peanut sauce and a link to the recipe!

200 Sawsan@chef in disguise May 25, 2011 at 3:21 pm

my favorite food on a stick is caramel apples :)
You have a wonderful blog here..really glad I found it

201 Jordan May 25, 2011 at 7:56 pm

Steak Kebabs

202 carla hatch May 25, 2011 at 8:45 pm

Maple brown sugar bacon on a stick!!! Can’t go wrong with BACON

203 Cat Martin May 25, 2011 at 10:25 pm

I just spent a week learning how to make iced (fancy iced) cookies – on a stick, and not on a stick… just from looking at websites, YouTube and videos/tutorials on websites. So, this week, my favorite “on a stick” food item is cookies. I don’t eat them, but I know a lot of other people who do! Now that I have a storehouse of sticks, maybe I could learn to make other things from this book. I’d love to win it!

204 Mary May 25, 2011 at 11:14 pm

Any and all of the above, but lamb souvlaki with tzatziki for savory and cotton candy for pure melt in your mouth sweetness. Can’t wait to see the book!!

205 Mike May 26, 2011 at 6:10 am

I love a good corn dog every now and again like a lot of you, but I gotta go with the chocolate covered frozen banana

206 Lynn May 26, 2011 at 7:00 am

I love kabobs! Fruit kabobs, chicken kabobs, veggie kabobs, shrimp kabobs, I could go on..

207 Kathleen L. May 26, 2011 at 7:18 am

Corn dogs!!!! YUM :-)

208 linsley May 26, 2011 at 8:04 am

I love corn dogs with yellow mustard! By far the my most guilty pleasure!

209 Ledina May 26, 2011 at 10:21 am

Hmmm…. kebabs of any type, definitively. But I would love to try macaroni and cheese on a stick :)

210 Kelly May 26, 2011 at 11:08 am

Our county fair had zucchini weenies. I was so curious I had to try one. They take a zucchini, hollow out the inside just enough to fit a hot dog (on a stick), then they put it into the corn batter and deep fry it. They serve it with either ketchup, mustard or ranch. I can’t wait for this summer’s fair so I can run to the booth and have my favorite thing on a stick!

211 Michelle T. May 26, 2011 at 11:15 am

Do popsicles count? I am SO addicted to strawberry bars.

Or…give me a good ole corn dog any day!!

212 Kurt K Bassett May 26, 2011 at 11:46 am

Anything on a stick is just so much better, and your recipe is fantastic!!

213 pavelchak May 26, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Deep fried Twinkies of course!

214 Christina May 26, 2011 at 1:17 pm

steak on a stick! or strawberry & brownie kabobs!

215 Jen May 26, 2011 at 2:14 pm

Caramel apples, plain or rolled in a topping!

216 Tanya R May 26, 2011 at 2:22 pm

CORNDOGS :) Just love ‘em!

217 Nicole Pelletier May 26, 2011 at 4:36 pm

If I dont win this recipe book, I am definitely buying it!

218 Hang C May 26, 2011 at 5:14 pm

There is a lot of things I like on a stick. They are so easy to cook and my kids love them. But I would say that Yakitori would be my favorite!!! It is Japanese food which is just chicken marinaded in sauce and then brush with more sauce. So yummy!!!

219 Amanda May 26, 2011 at 6:43 pm

Hmm I think since I am craving chocolate at the moment I will say cake pops!

220 Lily Lou May 26, 2011 at 8:29 pm

I’m not picky. I will eat most things on a stick.

221 Alicia Butler May 27, 2011 at 12:02 am

I’ve gotta go with the classic corn dog (extra points if it’s from a county fair) with lots and lots of mustard.

222 Hilary May 27, 2011 at 4:48 am

Without a doubt shrimp corndogs!!! Puts together two of my favorite foods:)

223 Ammie May 27, 2011 at 5:04 am

I’d have to stick with the good ole’ candy apple! It’s the best part of fair season!

224 Heidi May 27, 2011 at 5:07 am

Cake Pops! I love making them and eating them!

225 jan May 27, 2011 at 5:54 am

grilled shrimps or corn dogs

226 Robyn May 27, 2011 at 7:46 am

It has to be salad on a stick! The cute factor is way up there!

227 Laura S. May 27, 2011 at 8:06 am

I love chocolate Carmel apples! by far my favorite on a stick food

228 Lynne P May 27, 2011 at 8:33 am

hmm, a toss up, BBQ shrimp on a skewer for dinner than a Drk Choc covered Vanilla Ice cream bar for dessert or maybe a gourmet choco covered carmel apple.

229 Jessica May 27, 2011 at 10:20 am

My favorite food on a stick is grilled veggies! I just can’t get enough :)

230 Ally P May 27, 2011 at 10:40 am

Marshmallows… to make s’mores!!!

231 Jennifer J May 27, 2011 at 12:20 pm

I am so embarrassed to admit this, but it would have to be a corn dog. Do you see how much I need this book?

232 Marianne Umbao May 27, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Filipino hot dogs and marshmallow on a stick! We would have it during parties when I was younger in the Philippines. Sounds like a weird combination but I loved it! It was delicious!

233 Maggie May 27, 2011 at 9:58 pm

nothing can beat the classic corn dog with catsup!!!! i want some! haha :)

234 Maggie May 27, 2011 at 10:01 pm
