Attempt at food blogging

I have been cooking quite a bit these days, and visiting food blogs. A friend of mine even started one! But since I dont have the dedication for a single topic, I decided to include something I made into this one.

So here's a no-nonsense no loss in calories or brain cells dessert.

I call it the

Easy Lazy Pineapple Dessert. (How imaginative)

The original recipe is taken from the Food Network, something I saw on my flight back from New York.

My recipe uses a pie crust as a base, because I dont have bowls in the house. I also did not use rum, mascarpone cheese or pine nuts. But the essence of sauteing the pineapple is what I liked in the above mentioned recipe.

The ingredients are:

1) Pie crust. ( the kinds you get next to the pillsbury biscuits in the breakfast section in the supermarket)

2) Crushed Pineapples.

3) Banana

4) Reddi Whip

5) Chopped Walnuts

Pre-heat oven at 450F for 10 mins, glaze a glass pan with butter and unroll the pie crust on to it. Cut into slices. Bake for 15 mins.

While thats going on, in a pan add 1 tsp butter and add the pineapple (drain the juice from the can) and the banana. Lightly saute for 6-7 mins and mash the banana at the end.


Remove the crust from the oven. cool. Add the pineapple mix onto the pie crust to completely cover it. The circle the outside with reddiwhip and add one blob in the center and 5 around the center blob. (decor according to your taste =) ).

Add walnuts on the reddi whip. Generously.

Serve immediately, or the crust will become soggy.

I would have added a pic, but I ate it up and now theres none =( .. hehe no actually I have it, but I cant find my USB cord to upload the pic. Maybe next time.

Any improvements you can think of, please leave in the comments box, or email me!
