Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Orange Glazed Grilled Pineapple

Few desserts are as easy or as impressive as this simple fruit dessert. Grilled pineapple is truly fantastic, and we incorporate it into a lot of menus throughout the summer, but this particular recipe is especially great for special occasions. My favorite part of this recipe is not having to peel the pineapple, the entire pineapple, including fronds, is grilled. Serve the pineapple plain, with scoops of creamy French vanilla ice cream or fruit sorbets, or even with pound cake.

1 large ripe pineapple
Ice water
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons orange marmalade

Place the pineapple in a large bowl or pot and cover with ice water. Soak for 10-15 minutes while preparing the grill and the orange mixture. In a small pan melt together the butter and marmalade until smooth. Remove the pineapple from the water and drain well. Cut lengthwise into six wedges, and remove the hard core from each wedge. Place the pineapple on the grill and cook for 2 minutes on each cut side. Liberally brush each side with the butter-marmalade mixture and grill for an additional 3-4 minutes on each side or until the pineapple is soft and golden brown. Serve hot.

Makes 6 servings.
