Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits. However, I used to be intimidated by the spiky outside and would sometimes just buy the plastic containers full of precut pineapple. I always felt guilty, those plastic containers are a waste, and they cost a lot more than a whole pineapple would. So a few years ago, I decided to pony-up and learn how to cut one properly. It was a little awkward at first, but now it is a breeze. If you want to learn an easy way to do it, then click the "Start" button.
If you're worried about what to get those food know-it-alls on your shopping list, then fear no more. if the foodie in your life is constantly spouting off information, then test their knowledge by getting them the Food Lover's Trivia Game. If they don't yet know everything, then get them a copy of the Food Snob's Dictionary. This way they'll be able to wow and impress everyone with food facts and terminology. If you'd rather get them something edible, try these conserves from June Taylor. Or, go crazy and splurge completely by treating them to entire Serrano Ham, complete with stand!

I'm treating myself to a new set of knives this holiday season. My collection of knives is minimal; it's a makeshift grouping of lost and leftover knives. I don't have a sharpener, and so they rest jaggedly, unsharpened in the knife block. I asked you to help me search for a superb, sharply stylish knife set. You looked for reasonably priced knives with a variety of knife types or individual knives that I can use to create my own set. You bookmarked your finds in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag Knife Set. I really want a set that includes kitchen scissors, and this one by Wüsthof has both scissors and a sharpener. Thanks for helping me out gruaig_rua! For more knives, scroll through the selections below.

If you think your knives are sharp, but aren't completely sure, here's a simple test you can do to find out. Just hold a sheet of paper away from you and try slicing simple vertical strips. If the knife doesn't cut the paper, or snags as it slices through, then it's time to take them to the knife sharpener! Tip: Some grocery stores (including several large chains, depending on the location) and kitchenware stores offer free knife sharpening.
