This is a gorgeous dessert for holidays or even after a special weeknight dinner. I wouldn’t have believed how easy it was if I didn’t watch this video.
Core and slice pineapple so that each slice has a hole.
Spray grill pan with butter flavor Pam and heat till a drop of water sizzles in top of grill pan.
Grill slices on both sides for several minutes till grill marks appear.
Make butter rum sauce:
2 tsp unsalted butter melted in a pan
1/4 cup of brown sugar
stir in 1/4 cup rum
stir all ingredients on low heat till smooth
pour over ice cream that has been scooped on top of each pineapple slice.
If you are reading this post from a Blackberry , get on over to a computer and watch the video before the ice cream melts!

Have you heard? The whole world is going vegan! Well, not quite. But more and more, people are turning to veganism as a healthy way of life.
Veganism in a nutshell, is a diet without any animal products or bi-products– no meats, no dairy, no eggs. Some “black belt vegans” don’t even consume honey or wear leather, wool, or silk.
This might sound limiting, but if you’re a foodie, you can really get creative and put together delicious, satisfying and health-boosting meals. In fact, your repertoire might actually grow!

Nowadays we are lucky to live in an age where there is a tasty substitute for every animal based product. Now, some people love fake meats (me!), while others despise them with a fiery passion and stick with the basics — making the most of grains, fruits and vegetables. That, of course, is okay too.
The benefits of giving up animal products are many. Veganism has been proven to help combat high cholesterol and high blood pressure, diabetes and various cancers!
Vegan foods are, by nature, cholesterol free, and a diet based on grains, roots, fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans make you smarter, more attractive and immortal. Okay maybe that last part was a bit of hyperbole, but if you do it right you will feel noticeable better (if a bit gassy at first. Be forewarned, this can be a side effect of changes in diet.), Get enough protein from tofu, seitan and other meat substitutes, and animals everywhere will be extra nice to you (They can smell it, I swear).
