A note about serious food allergies
They once said pineapple didn't belong on a pizza. My friends, they were wrong. The ubiquitous "they" are wrong again, when they poo-poo pineapple in quesadillas. But you and I know better, with the sweetness of the pineapple and the sweetness of the BBQ coming together in perfect synergy. These hand-held wonders will make your dinner special. Who cares what they say? Tip: Easier way to mince cilantro? Gather them all in one hand and lay on the cutting board. Use your knife in a rocking motion to cut, then turn 90 degrees and repeat until the herbs are properly minced!
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a

sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
