Tropic Thunder

In dreary weather like we're having in New York, sometimes I like to trick my taste buds into believing I'm somewhere a little more warm and tropical. For dessert last night, I tried this recipe for Caramelized Pineapple from Everyday Food magazine's cookbook- of which I am a total devotee. It only takes about 10 minutes to make, and you can do it ahead of time. I served it with Haagen Dazs Vanilla Honey Bee ice cream, which was a totally complimentary flavor. The overall effect was like crustless apple pie meets the islands- exotic and homey at the same time. If you have a hard time imagining that, try this yourselves; I promise you won't be disappointed. It will put you in a total aloha state of mind.
