I have a couple of Rachael Ray’s cookbooks and each one has sticky notes sticking out of it marking the recipes that I’ve cooked or have caught my eye while flipping through the book. I love the way she writes her recipes with guidance like “eyeball it” or “pour EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil) twice around the pan!” Now those wing-it instructions are what REAL cooking is all about! She gives the reader the basics and encourages us to adjust the seasoning and ingredients to what we like! It’s the way I cook when I’m not writing down instructions for the blog!

I like to make this colorful Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Pork skillet meal when we are all “chickened-out” and have had enough poultry for a few weeks! Rachel created this recipe to suit my tastebuds perfectly, but if you want more heat then add an extra few slices of jalapeños. Prefer more pineapple? Add it!

This dish takes no time to cook and is pretty enough to share with guests!
