Got left-over coconut cream and/or a pineapple that's getting too ripe?

Because you ALWAYS have left-over coconut cream! Have you EVER seen a recipe that calls for a whole 410g tin of coconut cream? Nuh uh! Now if you also have a pineapple lying in the fruit basket, and you don't know what to do with it ... or just a tin of pineapple rings. Or whatever fruit you have - oranges should also work. Mango ... ok maybe not mango. Unless it's still quite firm.   Anyhooo ..,.. I had coconut cream and a pineapple :P   Pineapple and coconut cream upside down pudding

Cooking for Idiots

Have you ever tried to cook something from a recipe, only to be completely confounded by the measurements and technical terms and sheer volume of instructions?   Me too.   So, I'm goint to try and simplify some recipes so just about anyone can cook them. Where I can, I've converted measurements so anyone can follow them, even if you're one of those weirdos who doesn't use the metric system.   Gimme feedback, please.
