Pineapple Upside Down Cakes

3

We can’t think of a better way to celebrate National Pineapple Day than with Pineapple Upside Down cakes baked in our Ramekins! These fruity, fluffy cakes are the ideal dessert for the long, hot days of summer. They’re also great for portion control for the times when you want to keep indulging, but have your beach body to think about 😉

This recipe comes to us from one of our faithful Fiesta followers, Angel Estes, a finalist in last year’s recipe contest. We loved her recipe so much that we just had to feature it on this special holiday!

Pineapple Jalapeño Salsa

Pineapple Salsa

We love feasting on chips and salsa year round and our new Fruit/Salsa bowls are the perfect size to enjoy it. They have a wider mouth than our Bouillon and Ramekins, making it the ideal dipping bowl. It also holds more than our Fruit Bowl, meaning more room for snacking! Though it can be used for all sorts of great dips and tasty treats, we wanted to focus on its namesake: salsa.

This Pineapple Jalapeño Salsa recipe is one of our absolute favorites. The sweetness of the pineapple balances out the spiciness of the jalapeño so that it’s perfect for everyone! However, if you’re particularly sensitive to spicy foods you can always omit the jalapeño or use less than the recipe calls for.

Fresh salsa is easy to make and, in our opinion, much tastier than salsa from a jar. Our only problem with it is that it disappears too quickly!
