Pineapple Dessert

This is so simple but so good.  And really pretty healthy.  Pineapple is a great aid in digestion.  
4 cups Cubed Pineapple 4 tablespoons Carmel Sauce
ingredients for carmel sauce

6 tbsp organic butter
1 tsp frangelico
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup organic milk

Directions: put a cup of pineapple in each dish.  So you have four servings. 

Place sugar in a sauce pan on med to high head.  Using a wire whisk keep sugar moving so that is melts evenly.  Once all sugar is melted and amber in color.  Add butter.  Once butter is melted and fully incorporated.  remove form heat. Add Frangelico let cool a little and add in the milk this just thins the sauce out so that it drizzles better.  Drizzle warm sauce over pineapple and enjoy!

MSG are you eating it?

For those who follow me you know we avoid preservatives.  Especially MSG.  I have posted a 60 mins special it is old but still relevant.  Please watch this and share with your friends.

Directions;  Cook fettuccine according to  package. Drain well.  While pasta is cooking  Crush garlic and saute in 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium skillet.

Flavorings In Our Food

So since it is a holiday weekend, many channels are showing reruns.  Last night my husband and I watched 60 minutes.  Below is the video.  If you worry about what you put in your body as much as we do you will want to watch this.  Lots of fresh recipes to come.  I don't want this stuff in my food.
