Sneaky sneaky...that's what I thought of this month's Sweet Adventures Blog Hop : Cake and 3 vegetables. The only vegetables I know used regularly in desserts are pumpkin, carrots and maybe a sweet potato or two. Hmm... perhaps something a little more challenging? How about eggplant? And no butter or shortening of any kind? Flourless?

There's something very old-fashioned about fruity cakes, and the pineapple-upside-down cake is no exception. It has been quite a while since I saw an upside-down-cake. Remember those pineapple rings studded with the red maraschino cherries? Throwback to the eighties where watermelon baskets and pineapple porcupines were the rage back then and every Tupperware party had one or both. Ouch, that was a painful statement to make - actually confessing to growing up in the '80s...

When we do one of our jaunts down to Singapore, pizza at Peperoni Pizzeria is always a must-have. The pizzas there are the thin-crust type which I prefer, and they even have a humongous 21 inch "family size". Big Dog's fond wish is to one day be able to order the family size. *glutton*. One of our favourite pizza toppings is prosciutto topped with a simple arugula salad. It always felt healthier especially when we usually over-indulge whilst on holidays. Haha. Healthy pizza is oxy-moronic, don't you think so?
