Pineapple Pork #SundaySupper

Pineapple Pork #SundaySupperAs the summer comes closer and closer we want to share some tropical ideas so you can have lots of options to make in the summer for dinner, lunch, breakfast you name it.
Easy and delicious recipes like my Pineapple Pork a very simple way to incorporated some everyday recipes in a very peculiar way.
This is a dish inspired by one of my favorites Chinese Restaurants in Costa Rica, they make a dish very similar to this one and it was my favorite. The best part it was the amount of pineapple and sometimes coconut they use to put in the sauce.
Since we move here I try to find sometime similar but it was impossible, so I decided to make my own version and that is the history of how this delicious Pineapple Pork was born.

Hope you like.

CHOCOLATE CHIP CUT-OUT COOKIES Celebrating a One Year Anniversary of #SundaySupper

This is definitely a very special week for the family of #SundaSupper, as it is celebrating one year of sharing dinner around the family table.
For me personally it is an honor to be part of such a wonderful family and share the love of food that we all have.
To celebrate this event we chose recipes from different contributors that have this family, and believe me it was very difficult to choose among so many delicious and different cuisines.
After reviewing I chose a recipe that is not only easy to make and at the same time you can make this recipe with your children, and my children love to help for that reason I knew this is the perfect recipe. This recipe is originally from my colleague Carla of Chocolate Moosey and I personally recommend it, is simple and very delicious made ​​with ingredients you always have on hand, which is very important.

Line two cookie sheets with either silicone mats or parchment paper.
