Fresh pineapple is one of my favorite things in the whole entire world. Nothing against pineapple from a can, but it’s just not the same. Where I live, you can really only buy ripe pineapple from the store for a couple of months during the summer, so you better believe I’m taking advantage of it!
Now as good as pineapple is on its own, throw it on the grill, let it cook in its own sweet juices, and that’s about as good as something can taste. Then brush some Cinnamon Brown Sugar Honey Butter on there and your mouth almost explodes from all the delicious flavor!
Versatility of Grilled Pineapple
One of the great things about grilling pineapple is that the beautiful tart taste can be added to a lot of different things. The Cinnamon Butter adds a hint of sweetness and heat. Try adding it to a burger or even a grilled ham sandwich. Chunk it up and stick it on a skewer the next time you’re doing kebabs! Add it to salsa or crush it up and use it as an ice cream topping!
Side note. I went to an ice cream and cookie place in San Diego, and they had an unbelievably delicious pineapple coconut sorbet with cherries. It was absolutely to die for! One of the best sorbets/ice creams I’ve ever had. I could just eat that for my entire lunch every day. Sorry. A tangent. But I was thinking about it.
Still thinking about it.
Barbecue or Cookout?
When you’re going to go cook some meat on the grill, do you call it a barbecue? Or a cookout? I grew up saying cookout. It wasn’t until I came west that I heard people saying they were “going to have a barbecue.” What do you say? Well, I guarantee, once Cinnamon Grilled Pineapple has entered your life, you’ll be saying it a lot more!
If you just can’t get enough pineapple this summer, try our friend Kristin’s Pineapple Cobbler! It’s delicious!

Breakfast is the important meal of the day! You’ve got to eat at the beginning of the day in order to have a productive, energetic, and happy morning– and afternoon! But sadly, sometimes we either don’t eat breakfast at all, or we eat something void of any nutritional value. Even things that are touted as healthy often aren’t. For example, a muffin that has the same amount of sugar as a cupcake.
Sorry, let me step off my soap box for a moment to say that breakfast can be awesome, and the best meal of your day! These Heavenly French Onion Hash Browns are delicious, nutritious, and easy enough to make on even the busiest morning!
French Onion Potatoes
Can you think of a better combination than French Onion Butter with Asiago Cheese and potatoes? I can’t, which is why this recipe is such a knockout! The butter has the perfect flavor that adds to the potatoes and onion without making them greasy or overbearing. The hint of Asiago cheese really kicks things up a notch too! French Onion Butter has the added benefit of making sure that the potatoes are crispy. Nothing is worse than having hash browns that are soft and squishy. We want hash browns with a crunch, and butter really makes that happen!

These French Onion Hash Browns are truly heavenly! You’ll love them!
Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t like pizza? I honestly haven’t. Everyone likes pizza! At least, everyone likes regular pizza. White pizza is a whole different story, and not everyone likes it. For those who don’t know, white pizza is a twist on the classic pie; instead of red sauce, it’s replaced with ricotta cheese or Alfredo sauce. Pizza is a staple food in my household. And I’ve got to be honest, every once in a while, it’s nice to take a break from the traditional slice to something a little different.
White Pizza the Right Way
Pizza without the classic red sauce can be difficult to pull off– a lot of people fault a white pizza for being boring or bland. But you know what the answer is to that: Chef Shamy Parmesan Basil Garlic Butter! The flavor of our Garlic Butter is dynamite, and it knocks my socks off in this recipe. Garlic is usually a crucial ingredients in white pizza– it’s much needed to cut through all the fat of the ricotta. Add chicken and spinach, and you’ve got a delicious pie that will be one of the best you’ve ever tasted!
Toppings and Variations
We’ve added spinach, chicken, and red pepper flakes to our white pizza. You can build your pizza however you’d like. Put some slices of red onion on there, or some mushrooms. If you’re really feeling adventurous, try artichokes. Go a step farther and do prosciutto and figs. Top your pizza with arugala. The possibilities are truly endless.
