What's Cooking for Christmas?

What are you cooking for Christmas? I know lots of people are still recovering from Thanksgiving and are looking for a little something different than a repeat of last months meal. Maybe instead of a turkey or ham you can try serving up a tender beef or juicy port? Also don't forget the seafood! What do you do to keep your Christmas Feast "Spicy"?
Here are a few suggested recipes we've found to try something new for Christmas than the traditional. Life Chef suggests we "start off with Crispy skin, juicy meat, fragrant aromatic stuffing... what more could you want?"
Roasted Cornish Hens with Jasmine Rice, Cherries and Pepitas by Life Chef a.k.a Chef Asata

2 Cornish hens, trimmed of excess fat and rinsed
½ cup dried cherries
½ cup pepitas or pumpkin seeds
1 tsp vanilla
1 cinnamon stick, broken in half
2 cups of COOKED jasmine rice
4 bay leaves
salt and pepper
Season hens with salt and pepper and place 2 bay leaves into the cavity of each hen. Drizzle with olive oil and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.Remove hens from oven and let cool slightly. Drain off the liquid from the hens and RESERVE about ¼-1/2 cup. Meanwhile combine the cooked rice, cherries, pumpkin seeds, vanilla nd cinnamon stick with ¼ cup of the roasted hen juices.Fill each bird with the rice mixture after the hen’s have cooled enough to handle. Put the remaining rice into the baking dish, with the stuffed hens on top.Return to the oven and bake at 400 degrees another 20-30 minutes.

Glazed Autumn Root Vegetables by Gina and Pat Neeley

3 cup about 2 turnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
½ pound carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch slices
½ pound parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup onion, peeled and cut into 1/8-inch wedges
2 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 cup water
2 cup honey
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

PREPARATION
Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss the first seven ingredients with salt and pepper to taste in a large roasting pan. Pour water over the vegetables, cover with foil, and cook for 40 minutes until just tender. Whisk together the honey and vinegar, uncover the vegetables, and stir in the honey and vinegar. Cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes until slightly golden. Sprinkle with parsley; serve.

Boozy Baked Pears With Ginger and Brown Sugar by Gina and Pat Neeley

INGREDIENTS
1/3 cup brandy or apple cider
1/2 cup raisins, golden and regular
1/4 cup crystallized ginger
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup water
¾ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoon butter
6 item Bosc pears, peeled, cut in half and cored
PREPARATION
Place first five ingredients in a small saucepot. Heat until warmed through, swirl the pan to coat the dried fruit, and set aside to soak. Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Using your fingers, crumble the butter into the mixture until it forms a slightly moist crumb topping. Fill each pear with some of the mixture. Place the pears in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish; pour the brandy mixture evenly over the pears. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes at 375°F. Uncover, gently flip the pears upside down—it's fine if some of the mixture falls out of the center. Bake for an additional 30 minutes. Transfer the pears to serving bowls; spoon the juices and fruit over. For added flair, serve each pear with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt or sprinkle ¾ cup of chopped walnuts on top.

Where are the Happy Couples?

Okay, am I alone or is anyone else just plain OVER the media fixation on bad relationships, cheating spouses, and ugly divorces? With the latest being the Tiger Woods accident and alleged domestic squabble, and right before that the Fergie and Josh stripper scandal, and before that the Toni Braxton announcement of pending divorce from long time hubby and the list goes on and on and on.

No wonder the divorce rate is so high! Is it possible with all the negativity that is being forced fed to us that are minds are unknowing beginning programmed to expect and accept failure?

Whew! After that being said Spicy Wifey would like to shout out and celebrate some HAPPY COUPLES! Some couples that we see making a good go of it! Shout out to all the Spicy Wifey's and Spousy's making it work and having a good time doing it.

The Spicy Wifey Feature Couple is:
Paula Patton and Robin Thicke

The gorgeous actress, Paula Patton, is co-starring in the Oscar buzzing film Precious in theaters now. Robin's latest album "Sex Therapy" is due to drop December 15th. HUMMM love the title Robin!

Help Spicy Wifey Support the Fight Against Breast Cancer


Spicy Wifey is donating a portion of all sales the remainder of the month to Breast Cancer Research and Awareness. So SHOP, SHOP, SHOP!!! It's for a good cause!




October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Spicy Wifey wants all women and men to be aware of their breast health and want to encourage your awareness and support of the fight against breast cancer. Today, there is more hope than ever for people facing breast cancer. However, there is much work to be done to find promising new treatments, increase awareness about the importance of mammograms, help all women get access to screenings and care, and connect those impacted by the disease with the information, day-to-day help, and emotional support they need to wage their battle against breast cancer.


One of the earliest signs of breast cancer can be an abnormality that shows up on a mammogram before it can be felt. The most common signs of breast cancer are a lump in the breast; abnormal thickening of the breast; or a change in the shape or color of the breast. Finding a lump or change in your breast does not necessarily mean you have breast cancer. Additional changes that may also be signs of breast cancer include:



  • Any new, hard lump or thickening in any part of the breast

  • Change in breast size or shape

  • Dimpling or puckering of the skin

  • Swelling, redness or warmth that does not go away

  • Pain in one spot that does not vary with your monthly cycle

  • Pulling in of the nipple

  • Nipple discharge that starts suddenly and appears only in one breast

  • An itchy, sore or scaling area on one nipple

Do you do monthly self exams? Share you tips and stories on your participation in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

PUTTING YOUR BEST FACE FORWARD





Many of our Spicy Wifey’s are Spicy Mommy's too, or just extremely busy wifey’s on the go, so we wanted to share a post from “Mommy Fashionality” that give us tips on how to put our best face forward by applying easy, quick, but natural looking make-up.

Makeup does not mean you need to look like you have it on, it is simply to enhance your natural beauty.
  • Always moisturize your skin before applying your makeup in the morning. Find a good moisturizer that will also double as a lip moisturizer.

  • To save time, apply a concealer around your eyes and blend to hide any dark circles, or minimize any puffiness for a well rested look.

  • Now a dusting of loose or pressed powder will give you a finished look.

  • Adding a cream blush with a little sheen will add color, and brighten up your face for an all day finished look.

  • You can save more time by using your cream blush as a natural lip color. Simply use your finger to apply to your lips.

  • [Make sure to apply eyeliner.] Not only does this add color to your eye makeup, but it gives you the bright-eyed appearance you long for. Skip the bottom lashes as this can close the eye and make dark circles reappear.

  • Apply a touch of a neutral cream eye shadow color to the lid and blend.

  • Complete the look with a light coat of mascara and your eyes will look great!

The biggest thing to remember about quick, superb makeup is that you really do get what you pay for. It is better to pay for makeup that will last throughout the day without reapplications, then to spend the day adjusting your makeup.

Thanks Mommy Fashionality! For the complete post and more for moms who love fashion and style, check out this post “Ready Set Makeup!!!” and more at: http://mommyfashionality.wordpress.com.

I NEED YOU TO TOUCH ME!

Another one of The Five Love Languages is physical touch. We spoke on Quality Time…engaging in uninterrupted, distraction free time together. We’ve talked about Words of Affirmation, the love language of a person who responds to verbal compliments, encouragement and verbal reaffirming. Now a person whose primary love language is physical touch would much rather have you hold them and be silent than offer any advice.

Now let’s get to the juicy part…the touching, hugging, kissing, rubbing, caressing, holding, massaging…well you get the point. Learn what type of touch your partner likes it makes a difference. Per Gary Chapman, the author of The Five Love Languages, “it is important to remember that this love language is different for everyone. What type of touch makes you feel secure is not necessarily what will make your partner happy. It is important to learn each other’s dialects. That way you can make the most of your hugging, kissing, and other physical contacts.”

Here are 10 suggestions for showing physical touch:
1. Hold hands when walking from the car to the door of the store.
2. Riding in the car reach over and touch your spouse on the arm, stomach, thigh, or run your fingers through their hair.
3. While eating together let your knee or foot drift over and touch your spouse under the table.
4. Walk over and hug your spouse and tell them they are the greatest and rub their back and tell them how much you love them.
5. While your spouse is seated walk over and initiate an unannounced shoulder massage.
6. While sitting together in church and the pastor calls for prayer, reach over and hold your spouses hand.
7. Meet them at the door when they come home, or meet them at the car, or at the street and greet them with a hug and walk in the house together.
8. Run the water in the Jacuzzi or tub and announce to your spouse you are looking for your partner to join you.
9. Initiate sex by starting with a foot massage and then work your way all the way up!
10. When family or friends are present touch your spouse in front of them, hold their hand, give them a kiss on the check, or put your arm around them this will earn you double emotional points, as it says even when all these people are around I still see you.

How to have an AFFAIR!


With your spouse,HELLO! What do you think we discuss here on the Spicy Wifey Blog!

Maintaining a loving and hot relationship requires effort, and after children requires you become a warrior! This takes us back to a concept discussed in a previous post, Quality vs. Quantity. Love making may not be all day and night, but quality love making (which may involve an occasional quickie now & then) may do the trick. Sneaking around the kids and being creative can be an adventure!


To avoid giving your spouse "leftover love," you need to schedule time for sex. It's "the best way to ensure intimacy," says Dr. Ellen. Create anticipation, this can be a turn on! And don't say that you can't find the time. That's a poor excuse for sacrificing your most important relationship. Dr. Ellen says you need to do three times as much to keep your mate as you did to win your mate. Couples should spend one weeknight alone together and one weekend every three months without the kids. You schedule Dr. appointments, meetings and etc., because its important to you, right?


Don't Let Obstacles Get in Your Way
To have a healthy love life after children, it's important to make your relationship with your spouse your top priority. Here are some of the most common obstacles to avoid:

You can't find a baby sitter. Many couples use this excuse because they feel guilty leaving their kids after working all day. Tell your kids that you need one night a week for grown-up time. Let them help pick a sitter they like and schedule him or her every week for six months. The kids will start to look forward to your night out, too.

You don't have money for a sitter. Many couples can't afford a sitter every week. Arrange a baby-sitting swap with a neighbor or friend. Or establish a "do not disturb" rule one night a week. Set your children up with a movie, sleeping bags, popcorn and breakfast items for the morning.

You're too tired to go out. Do it anyway. Going out will decrease your stress. You'll feel energized and relaxed when you return. Besides, you have to do the work to maintain the relationship. How often do you not go to work because you're too tired. Rarely! You go anyway. Your relationship is certainly worth the effort. It will be worth it!

You don't feel romantic. It's common when juggling work and children to feel this way. Start sending positive messages to yourself about your sexuality. Some affirmations that can help are: "I love my body," "I love being touched and touching," "I love sex." If you really can't get in the mood, try sleeping in each other's arms or have your partner give you a massage and see what happens next. Attend a Spicy Wifey Seasoning Session if you're in Atlanta, we'll help you increase your Spice Factor in no time!

There's not enough time. Make the time. Wake up early or stay up later. Divide household responsibilities with your partner so you can have some time together. Make the children's dinner and feed them in a separate room while you have a romantic dinner with your spouse. This may not appeal to you, were simply suggesting you think outside the box.

Dr. Ellen Kreidman, best-selling author of Is There Sex After Kids?, says "one of the best ways to show your children love is by having a loving relationship with your spouse." In fact, Dr. Ellen helps couples become better parents by becoming better partners and lovers. From: Discovery Health

QUALITY not Quantity!


As we continue our conversation based upon the book, The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman, we want to introduce another Love Language! Quality Time

The book defines Quality Time as time spent focused on your mate. So, that means that you are engaging in uninterrupted, distraction free time together. Sounds simple enough, right? Some couples may find it challenging to turn off the distractions of life and spend some one on one. Work, kids and your own individual needs to relax and unwind may get in the way.

Those who respond to this Love Language need this interaction to feel loved and affirmed. Spending Quality Time together doesn't have to be elaborate or by the book. It can be self defined. Quality conversation may suffice, but does require eye contact, listening, responding and making an internal connection with whatever it is your mate is saying. And although the book suggests you spend time really focused on one another. You may find that you too enjoy watching a movie or the game together. So go for that!

The connected formed by spending Quality Time together is a deep and lasting one.

Sleep or Sex?

As we continue our discussion exploring The Five Love Languages, we introduced Physical Touch.
A new study, funded by Westin Hotels, shows more than half (51%) of Americans surveyed chose to snooze. Just 10 years ago, a similar study found sex to be the priority -- with only 31% saying they'd rather sleep. No surpise that more men opted to have sex and no doubt, sleep after! The ladies on the other hand, said nighty night!

What do these results really say? Perhaps there is a correlation between lack of sex in relationships and divorce. Are we so stressed and overworked that we neglect to intimately connect with our mates? Sex is a way to maintain and nurture your bond. Without that physical touch, you may find your relationship mirroring that of room mates and not lovers. Ok, so you are just too tired and can't engage fully in the act of sex. Physical touch can involve embracing, caressing or kissing. That type of physical interaction is one element that distinguishes platonic relationships from more personal ones.

Sleep & sex are both essential. Spicy Wifey suggests a Sexy Slumber Party with your mate! Make an effort to get both in one night. Make it about getting in rest and sex. You can keep it simple, and set the mood and indulge in all the kissing and heavy petting you can until you fall asleep. Or go all out, get a room. Let your mate sleep first and wake them up with a little bit more than breakfast in bed!
Which would you rather do?

1st Love Language

The Spicy Wifey Book Club selection is The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman.

The book is a VERY easy read and millions have found it of great benefit when improving communication with their mates. And surprisingly, you can also apply the Love Language philosophy to benefit communication in the workplace and with friends and family members!

COMMUNICATION is frequently sited as an area of opportunity in most relationships. The Five Love Languages explores what is the best "language" to use when communicating. Reading this book I quickly discovered that I wasn't speaking my husbands language. Therefore, when I expressed love, anger, concern or any other emotion...he didn't always hear me. And not because he wasn't listening but because I wasn't necessarily speaking HIS language.
This brings us to the Love Language....Words of Affirmation.

A person who responds to verbal compliments, encouragement and verbal reaffirming may respond to this love language. Like my hubby does, at times! To learn more, join us in reading The Five Love Languages!

We will assemble in Atlanta September 12th for a discussion about the book. However, those abroad can get in on the discussion now! Look for periodic posts on this blog and our Facebook group page.

We can't wait to hear your thoughts, experiences and stories of discovery!

Attention Ex , 2nd and Remarried Wifeys!


Our friends at Blended Family Soap Opera recently introduced Spicy Wifey to their world of readers! Spicy Wifey recognizes that blended families and wives face challenges that are exclusive to the blended family circumstance. We applaud your perseverance and encourage you to increase the Spice Factor in your marriage! Welcome to the Spicy Wifey Movement!

The Blended Family Soap Opera Mission Statement:
Blended Family Soap Opera was created in hopes of helping other blended families adjust to this new, but very common type of family. We firmly believe that dialogue promotes change, and it is our sincere desire that this blog prompts other blended families to begin discussing their issues in order to work towards resolution.

We don’t believe in sugar-coating any of our material because this blog is about being honest and straight to the point, even using our own past and sometimes present misgivings and mistakes in order to deliver a message. We don’t believe, however, in ex-spouse bashing and all of our thoughts and opinions are not meant to offend anyone. BFSO wants to hear and values ALL perspectives within the blended family; ex-husbands, second wives, stepchildren and ex-wives. We understand that certain blended family issues are never black and white, and hope you understand that our articles will often be a reflection of our own experiences. If you want information or advice that is applicable to your specific situation, then anyone of our blended family coaches will be happy to help you out.

Money Matters

...Cooperation, among other things, is one way to get on the right track.BY AL JACOBS (hitched.com)
In a recent Spicy Wifey poll, many stated that financial strain was a leading cause of stress in their relationship. Unfortunately, financial woes are credited as a leading cause of divorce in this country. Therefore, we have sought out advice and guidance from financial experts to provide information that you may find helpful.

Keep in mind that this is just a single perspective. Together you and your spouse should collaborate to seek techniques that suit your individual needs and circumstances. We will continue to provide varied perspectives on this matter as long as you ask us too. In the meanwhile, don't allow stress to detour affections, intimacy and connection with your mate! Life is short, so try to enjoy!

1. Pay bills promptly. When a bill arrives for payment, one of two things can be done with it. It can be paid promptly or set aside to be paid later. (Admittedly, there’s a third option—not paying it at all—but let’s not go there.) The habit of selecting the end of the grace period as the appropriate date for payment is a troublesome practice. Human nature is such that late charges, damaged credit and aggravation will be your reward. The best way to function is by making your payments within twenty-four hours. The results will be serendipitous; you’ll find the people with whom you do business will be more attentive, your phone will ring less insistently and your days will become less frantic. Living in the financial pending basket is a tough row to hoe.

2. Don’t spend what you don’t possess. Marketing in this country came of age in the 1920s. Back then the advertising industry developed a sophistication, which enabled it to foist off an unbelievable aggregation of commercial junk on a gullible public. One of the techniques perfected involved convincing a buyer a product unaffordable today would surely be affordable at some later date—so sign on the dotted line now and breathe easily, secure in the knowledge tomorrow never arrives. This disavowal of the future sells a lot of stuff, but gets many couples into serious trouble. It’s important you realize today’s expense may not be more easily paid tomorrow. Without the money in hand today, don’t commit to spending it.

3. Avoid paying interest. The single factor at the root of many couples’ financial woes is the payment of interest. Whether the source of trouble is from the time-purchase of furniture, a vacation financed on the cuff, an auto loan or that overbearing scourge, the credit card—the drain on family income flow tends to go on forever. It’s my belief, with the exception of mortgages on sensibly-priced real estate, interest should never be paid to anyone . . . anywhere . . . anytime. This is particularly true since implementation of the 1986 federal tax law changes, which ended the tax deduction previously given for interest payments. There is no rational justification to go into hock for consumer items, regardless of the interest rate offered. As I said in the prior paragraph, don’t spend what you don’t possess. I’ve never forgotten the response I received many years ago from an elderly investor whom I asked what he considered to be a fair and reasonable interest rate to pay on borrowed money. With a shocked expression, he blurted out: "Interest is not something you pay; it’s something you receive."

4. Maintain a reserve. Nothing can be more devastating to a relationship than insolvency. At such times, affection easily turns to animosity, often accompanied by recriminations. I still remember a slogan expressed frequently during the Great Depression of the 1930s: When poverty walks through the door, love flies out the window. One way to forestall this problem is to set aside assets when times are good, so when leans times come, as they invariably do, you and your spouse will enjoy a cushion upon which to fall back. Profit from the negative examples set by the political officials of my state, California. Tax money rolled in during the early part of this decade, as real estate values soared. Our leaders managed to spend every dime—and then some. When prices collapsed, our state government went into shock. California now faces a $24 billion shortage and former allies are at each others’ throats. This may be the way to run a governmental operation, but not a successful marital relationship.

5. Make spending decisions together. Never forget that marriage is a partnership. Just as with other important considerations, major financial decisions must be a joint effort. It’s true, of course, one of the partners may possess a better feel for money than the other. Nonetheless, as they share the final outcome, each deserves a say. I’ve found over the years when my wife and I truly cooperate in important financial matters, the decisions usually satisfied us both. The alternative is an invitation to resentment—certainly not a way to live life.

Summer Vacations on a budget!

Many are experiencing financial adversity these days. Despite budget constraints we still need to treat ourselves to some R&R from time to time! (Now more than ever) To plan a Spicy Vaca with your mate or a fun getaway with family, consider these tips:

* Start with your ideas, then work it in your budget.
* Think outside the box...for example are there attractions in town that you can take advantage of like botanical gardens, amusement parks or a new hotel.
* Map out destinations you can drive to on a tank of gas.
* Cash in reward points, frequent flyer miles or discounts.
* Found a dream vacation destination, simply ask reservations for a discount or the availability of special offers or promotions.
* Seek out friends and family who may belong to travel clubs, own timeshares and etc.
Interesting ideas or creative destinations...share your travel tips with us!

4th of July Recipes

Here are some of your all time favorites-with a twist, sure to impress this weekend at your holiday gathering!

Gorgonzola Cheeseburgers with Pancetta
Active Time: 15 Minutes
Total Time: 15 Minutes
Yield: 4 Servings
When making burgers, handle the meat as little as possible; a few pats with wet hands is all that's necessary to shape the patties.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
For the Burgers:
1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin or chuck
Salt and freshly ground pepper
8 thin slices
pancetta
Four 3/4-inch-thick slices Gorgonzola cheese (4 ounces)
For the Buns:
4 hamburger buns or kaiser rolls, split
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
romaine lettuce leaves, tomato slices and paper-thin sweet onion slices

DIRECTIONS
FOR THE BURGERS: Light a grill. Shape the meat into 4 patties and season on both sides with salt and pepper. Wrap each hamburger with 2 slices of pancetta. Grill the burgers over a medium-hot fire for about 4 minutes, or until nicely browned on the bottom. Flip the burgers and top them with the Gorgonzola. Grill for about 4 minutes longer, or until nicely browned and cooked through.
FOR THE BUNS:Meanwhile, brush the cut sides of the buns with the butter and grill them, cut side down, until lightly toasted.
TO SERVE: Set the burgers on the bun bottoms and top with the lettuce, tomato and onion. Serve at once.
BEER RECOMMENDATION: Beer is all that's needed between bites of this rich burger--a flavorful brew, such as Catamount Gold, would be ideal.

Grilled Veggies!
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
red, yellow, orange and green BELL PEPPERS sliced about 1/2 inch thick - lengthwise.
yellow and zucchini squash - cut lengthwise about 1/2 inch thick.
egg plant - sliced lengthwise about 1/2 thick.
onion - sliced crosswise about 1/2 thick.
asparagus - trimmed of woody bottoms.
*** any veggies that you like can be used - potatoes are good too!
DIRECTIONS
Clean and prepare veggies 1 day ahead.
Place in (Tupperware) tray with good fitting lid.
Cover with bottled Italian Vinaigrette dressing. ( Paul Newman's Balsamic Vinaigrette, a fav of our Chef Asata)
Marinate veggies over night in fridge - turning every now and then to coat veggies well.
When ready to grill - put veggies in a grilling basket - or on skewers (soaked in water if wooden) and grill until browned and cooked through. DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!


Garden Zucchini Pasta Salad
Active Time: 25 Minutes
Total Time: 25 Minutes
Yield: Serves 4
Garden-fresh zucchini and tomatoes make a beautiful pasta, perfect for a warm summer night's dinner. It can be served hot or at room temperature, either for four as a main course or for eight as a side dish – with grilled chicken, for instance.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds zucchini (about 4), cut in half lengthwise and then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 pound plum tomatoes (about 6), seeded and diced
1/2 cup chopped fresh
basil
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh-ground black pepper
1 pound bow ties

DIRECTIONS
In a large frying pan, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil over moderate heat. Add the garlic, zucchini, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer the zucchini to a large stainless-steel, glass, or ceramic bowl and stir in the tomatoes, basil, vinegar, the remaining 2 teaspoons salt, and the pepper.
In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the bow ties until just done, about 15 minutes. Drain the pasta and toss it with the marinated zucchini and the remaining 1/3 cup oil.
VARIATION: Balsamic-Marinated Zucchini with Bow Ties
For a sweeter dish, you can substitute an equal amount of balsamic vinegar in place of the wine vinegar called for in the recipe.


Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Active Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Total Time: 9 Hours 30 Minutes
Yield: 10 servings
Retro, creamy and delicious, this cake is the frozen version of the beloved classic. This takes a bit of extra time to make - but it's worth it. Make Ahead Tip: Tightly wrap and store in the freezer for up to 2 weeks (do not refreeze). Equipment: 9-inch spring form pan
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 20-ounce can pineapple rings in juice, drained, juice reserved
5 fresh cherries, pitted, or
raspberries
3 large egg yolks, at room temperature (see Kitchen Tip)
6 tablespoons packed light brown
sugar
2 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 cup
sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup heavy cream
7 ounces angel food cake (see Kitchen Tip)
Tip: To get the most volume from beaten eggs, it's best for them to be at room temperature. Either set the eggs out on the counter for 15 minutes or submerge them in their shells in a bowl of lukewarm (not hot) water for 5 minutes. To make it easier to thinly slice the angel food cake (Step 7), place it in the freezer while preparing the filling.

DIRECTIONS
Coat a 9-inch spring form pan with cooking spray; set it on a large plate. Blot 5 pineapple rings dry with paper towels; arrange in a circle in the bottom of the pan. Place a cherry (or raspberry) in the center of each pineapple ring.
Place the remaining pineapple and the reserved juice in a blender; blend until smooth.
Beat egg yolks and brown sugar in a 3-quart stainless-steel bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until thick, pale brown and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Beat in the pineapple puree, scraping down the sides as necessary.
Bring 1 inch of water to a slow simmer in a large saucepan. Place the bowl of pineapple mixture over the simmering water and beat on medium speed until thick, doubled in volume and an instant-read thermometer registers 160°F, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat (be careful of the escaping steam) and continue beating on medium speed until room temperature, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
Clean and dry the beaters. Beat egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar in another 3-quart stainless-steel bowl on medium speed until foamy. Bring the water in the saucepan back to a slow simmer, set the bowl of egg whites over it, and continue to beat on medium speed while moving the mixer around, until the mixture is glossy and thick, about 3 1/2 minutes. Increase the speed to high and continue beating over the heat until very stiff and glossy, about 3 1/2 minutes more (the eggs will be at a safe temperature, 160°F, at this point). Remove from the heat (be careful of the escaping steam) and continue beating on medium speed until room temperature, 3 to 5 minutes. Whisk the meringue into the reserved pineapple mixture until smooth.
Clean and dry the beaters one more time. Beat cream in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until soft, droopy peaks form, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Fold the whipped cream into the batter. Pour the batter over the pineapple slices in the pan.
Cut angel food cake into nine 3/4-inch-thick slices. Lay the slices over the batter, completely covering the top. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 8 hours.
Remove the cake from the freezer and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edges. Invert the pan onto a large serving plate and rap gently on the counter to loosen the cake. Remove the pan sides, then carefully remove the pan bottom. If the bottom does not release easily, place a towel soaked in hot water on it for a minute, then try again.
