This wonderful carrot cake is easy-to-make and so moist!  The pineapple seems to add to the moisture.

Carrot and pineapple Bread slices on a cutting board

Carrot, Pineapple, and Ginger Bread
This Carrot Bread takes more time to make than other quick breads and also makes more mess in the kitchen. – But when you taste this delicious bread, it will have been worth the time and effort!  I was surprised when I discovered that this bread was even better after sitting overnight.  Think carrot cake without the frosting.

Flambe Seafood Pineapple Boat
I created this dish for a gourmet dinner that I put up for a local charity auction to benefit the Hillsboro School Foundation.  Using the pineapple shells makes a very dramatic, exotic, and beautiful presentation!  This wonderful dish will definitely delight your family and friends.
This is my favorite fresh fruit salad.  My mother-in-law, Gertrude Zemp, taught me to make this when I was a young bride.   It is very refreshing and also low in calories.  I use whatever fresh fruit is in season when making this salad.  The banana dressing is very light and compliments the fruit.  You will never want to make a “yucky” canned fruit salad again!

Grilled Pineapple

I just love grilled pineapple!Grilling does wonderful things to fruit as it caramelizes the sugars creating a golden brown color and intensity of flavor.  This very simple and elegant dessert is the perfect ending to a heavy barbecue.  The pepper brings out the “grilled” flavor and adds some spiciness.

Mexican Pineapple Water – Agua de Pina
Agua Frescas are fresh fruit drinks that are very popular throughout Mexico.  You will find these drinks at street stands all over Mexico and also at restaurants.  They are usually served from large barrel-shaped glass containers (vitroleros).  These fruit drinks are a lot like sorbets, as they freshen the palate.  They provide a perfect balance to the spiciness of Mexican foods.

Strawberry Coconut Smoothie
Tropical Sunrise Smoothie
Smoothie Recipes from the article called Blending vs. Juicing.  Is it better to juice or blend?  There is always a lot of discussion among my friends about whether they should juice fresh produce or blend whole foods.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake with cross section removed
Traditional Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
The upside-down cake, which was so popular in the ’50s and ’60s, is again gaining in popularity.  No wonder – it’s still wonderful!  Use your cast-iron frying pan.  The heavy pan keeps the butter from burning, and the handle makes it easy to flip the cake upside down when it is done.

Fruit and vegetable salad with Champagne vinaigrette in a large glass bowl

Winter Fruit and Vegetable Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette
I love this bright, refreshing salad in the winter when days are damp and cold, and I am craving garden tomatoes.  Look for Sweet Grape Tomatoes at your local supermarket.  They brighten up this perky salad and the taste is a good substitute during winter days.
