    Found your website by a run of great luck! I tried this last night and it is fantastic! I used fresh pineapple and thought I’d have to add water, however it was fine without it 🙂 Next time though, I’d reduce the red pepper flakes by half as it was very spicy for my tastes – although my hubby loved the spice level! Today I’m making your bbq #2 sauce….it’s already tasting great, my mouth is already watering!
    I’m pretty new to SCD (only about 3 months in) so I am definitely ready for some flavour!
    Looking forward to more from you in the future!
    In peace and love,

    Oh my gosh this was delicious! I’m new to SCD and haven’t found many recipes that both the hubby and I thought tasted very good. This is a keeper! We love your Yonana muffins, too.
