Pineapple Salsa and Giveaway

dole pineapple
I enjoy making a variety of sweet desserts and savoury dishes using pineapple all year around. Since I can't find fresh pineapple when it is not in season, we opt for Dole canned pineapple and find that they work just like fresh pineapples for the recipes I make. I always have a can of pineapple at home, you never know when you need one. As a pineapple fan, I am excited to be partnering with Dole Canada to host a Dole Pineapple kit giveaway to celebrate International Pineapple Day this June 27th.

Indian Cuisine Diabetes Cookbook by May Abraham Fridel, the founder of the organic spice company, Passion for Spices, has more than 140 recipes that include main dishes, sides, condiments, one pot meals, flatbreads, drinks and desserts. Four pages in the book has colour photography of some of the recipes. Most of the recipes on this book are dishes I regularly make at home, and I liked how well the author explains the recipes.

This sweet Trinidadian Gulab Jamun snacks are different from the Indian Gulab Jamun taste and texture. It is more like a soft textured cookie or sweet murukku. These snacks will keep well in an air-tight container.

Grilling with Sabra Hummus

tofu grilled sabra hummus
I adapted Chef Matt Basile's Sabra Hummus Steak recipe below by substituting tofu instead of meat. If you are grilling tofu it needs to be enjoyed right away while it is hot. If you are using tofu, marinate it for a few hours and grill it in a preheated grilling pan as it may break when turning it.

Dole has launched a fresh innovation for ready-to-eat fruit. We found the new Dole Resealable Fruit Pouches to be a time-saving way to enjoy fresh tasting fruit instantly. It is perfect for occasions or places where we don't have the luxury of kitchen tools, for example to take during picnics and camping, for office snacks, and sports games.

I tried the Banana Brownie Swirl Cake from the book Cake I love You, which is a hit in our home. There is plenty of inspiration in this book for beginning bakers and the experienced. The tips and techniques of the decadent, do-able recipes shared by author, Jill O'Connor are useful to get delicious end results. The recipes in this book are divided by flavours such as banana, coconut, chocolate, caramel and butterscotch, citrus, spirits and spices, and garden and orchard.

There are about 300,000 people in Canada under the age of 18 that suffer from food-related allergies. To keep everyone feeling included, Enjoy Life Foods has chocolate treats that we can all enjoy. We can make these cake pops using Enjoy Life Foods Double Chocolate Brownie Soft Baked Cookies. These cake pops are very sweet :) If you want to lessen the sweetness reduce the amount of frosting added to the treats.
