Instead of garlic powder on the steak, which can burn on the grill, make garlic butter and put a pat of it on each steak when they come off the grill. The butter will melt and you'll get the fragrance of garlic. I recommend using fresh garlic. You could even roast it to make roasted garlic butter.

By the way, Jeremy, thank you for your service to the USA......it's an honor to have you here at DC.

I would make a lemon tart... Make a graham cracker crust or you could make a similar crust but use ground up cookies instead or even a standard pre baked crust. Then add a layer of lemon curd (like home made lemon pudding which is easy to do). Top is with some sliced fruit like kiwi or berries and pass the whipped cream or creme fraiche.

You can make this ahead and refridgerate. It looks great, tastes great and is refreshing after a 'dense' meal. Add a chocolate drizzle on the plate under the slice for that extra ... well, you know....

Some possible recipes:

Steven & Chris - Elizabeth's Lemon Tart

Jamie's Bloggers / LEMON Tarts.....

I do a dry brine. I liberally salt both sides of the steak then wrap tightly with plastic wrap. The steaks goes back into the fridge for 24 hours. The salt draws the moisture out of the meat, but then it dissolves and that salty liquid is drawn back into the meat seasoning it from the inside out.

What is her favorite dessert? Cake, pie, cookies? I'd do something based on that. If it is all equal, then what is the best in season. I'm counting down the days for finding awesome strawberries. Strawberry shortcake is just a few days away.
