  1. Yum, grilled pineapple is delicious!

    I recommend buying a pineapple slicer, it is my favorite kitchen utensil! Much easier and less messy than a knife, gives you nice rings, and leaves the shell for use as a bowl or cup. 🙂

    They are available at Bed, Bath & Beyond and The Kitchen Collection for $10.
