  1. I loved the blend of avocado with pineapple. The ham was very delicious. Unfortunately, the pineapple and cloves were a little overpowering and I could barely taste the ham under all that spice and sweetness. I think next time, I'll blend the pineapple up and make a reduction instead. Very nice, though. Easy to put together and satisfying. I will definitely make it again.


Someone special recently gifted me with membership ~ I don't know who, but know they are special :D! Thank you! It is much appreciated.... My parents owned a grocery store when I was growing up, so there's my love of FOOD! My friends all love to drink, so there's my profession! I stopped bartending 5 years ago, when my son was born, but still 'do' private parties. DH and I did a 'Supper Club' for a while, but life kept getting in the way! I am a SAHM, to a rambunctious 5 y.o....I LOVE cooking and collect cookbooks and anything kitchen related! I'm kinda picky, but will just drop an ingredient or make a sub, so I can still try a recipe. I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyment here, and hope to participate in some events soon! Thanks to everyone for posting such great recipes, and if you review mine, just know that I appreciate the time and effort involved in the reviewing process! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href=""><img src=""></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> Partnered with chef#724631 <img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> Co-hosted: <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="New Kids Participation Banner"> <img src=""> <img src =""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="BBBZWT%"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" > <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src= "">
