I doubled this recipe for a neighborhood block party. It was not "yummy". It turned out to be too dry thick and not sweet enough. The recipe did not make it clear whether to drain the pineapple or include the juices. I would like to try this recipe again but need input from others. Thanks. Read More

My grandma has been making this for as long as I can remember! It brings back memories. The one thing I suggest is using those colored mashmallows. They are flavored, are a perfect addition, and the only way I would make this. Read More

My mum used to maek something very similar to this minus the rice. I would add shredded coconut. Do not make this more than a few hours before eating. It does not store well infact goes quite dry. Great with ice-cream. Sliced bananas and mango peices mixed help togive this an extra boost. Read More
