Pineapple Chicken Tenders
i'm always one for anything pineapple but this needed something. I did try it again but I didn't have any pineapple juice so tried it with orange instead as well as I also took up someone else advice and tossed in some garlic powder. Tasted far better.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps
Made these for my Dad and I at Easter and we loved em. Scanned through a few suggestions and the freezing them first is a great idea, prevents the cheese from melting and making a mess of the grill. Two suggestions: make sure the peppers are not to big, length wise, other wise the Bacon will not wrap around totally. Second:When you first put them on the grill put them cheese side down on low heat. Once the bacon is done to your liking flip them over and do the bottom. This way the cheese will not melt and mess the grill and two if you just put them on the bottom the bottom bacon will burn as by then the cheese is starting to melt and will run out. This is a good way to get evenly cooked bacon and no melted cheese. We tried it with Smoked salmon cheese and was surprising quiet tasty. Next time I will try a herb cheese. thnx for sharing this peppery delight.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya
as some one said earlier. this isi the BOMB.. fantastic i made it one night when my dad was in town, he loves spicey foods, and he aboslutly loved this. I had cut the spices in half and it still has some kick to it. I too prefer raw shrimp/prawns to frozen so i tossed them in 30-35min towards the end. i noticed others saying that it was more like soup so i eased up on the broth and tomato juice. almost perfect in terms of thickness and didnt hurt the flavour at all. It also freezes well.. if you have any left over. lol i had enough for two more meals .. my dad ate it all during his visit. over all if i could 10 stars i loved it and cant wait to do it again
