"I thought it would be weird to put so much ketchup in the recipe, but tried it anyway and it turned out pretty good. I added more cashews than the recipe called for, just because the hubby likes them. I used fresh pineapple chunks instead of canned and it ended up not tasting right. It was way too tangy for the rest of the recipe. Next time I will try the canned pineapple or omit it altogether."
