Maybe this should be in the recipe section, but what are your favorite dishes that use rum? I make a bread pudding that uses it. I would love to know how all of you use (any kind of) alcohol in cooking.

I also use rum in my breadpudding;

- Calvados in apple pie;
- Poire-William in Bavarian cream;
- Cognac or Brandy in sauce for Steak au Poivre;

to name a few...

Did you also have wine in mind? I use wine just about everywhere!

I always put a tablespoon or two of rum in my amandine. It's great in the fruit cakes, I always macerate the fruits in rum for ar least 24 hours before making the cakes.

I used to macerate a nice piece of lime in a 1/2 rum, 1/2 coca cola mixture. This was generally good over ice. After several of these, I became Mofo Beard, the "yard pirate." (I usually drank these outside.) "Avast ye maties!!!" "Set a course for divorce court!!!" Needless to say, it is probably a good thing I quit.

ARRRRGH!! Where's me buckin hat? My bucanneers are cold! :D

A little off the subject, but my new favorite rum drink is a "Dark & Stormy. Gosling's rum and ginger beer serviced over ice. These things are not only addictive, they are TROUBLE!!!!
