    Blackberry Cake

    I’m not gonna lie. I am SO ready for Fall! It’s my absolute favorite season, and since Texas just didn’t have Fall, I haven’t seen a real fall in five years!!! Now that we’re back in our home state (yay, Michigan!), I am just ecstatic that we’re headed into September. All that said: berries!! They’re still in season, and I’d be crazy not to use them for as long as I can! This Blackberry Cake is easy, flavorful, and just LOOK at that color!! <3

    Wacky Cake

    To say times are strange right now is the understatement of the century. I’ve struggled with finding a sense of normalcy. My type-A, control freak personality doesn’t fare well when things are out of my control. I also thrive on routine, as do my kids, so we’re working hard to find a new normal (but wouldn’t it be so, so nice to get back to *actual* normal??). This morning I woke up and thought about how lucky that we are to have found milk and eggs recently, and that I should try to ration them. Not only so that we don’t need more so soon, but so that those who need them can get them, too. Then it hit me: Wacky Cake.

    Pineapple Upside Down Cake

    I’m not a huge pineapple fan. It’s okay, but definitely not my favorite. Pineapple Upside Down Cake, though, is another story.

    Pineapple upside down cake reminds me of my Grandma (my mom’s mom), since it was a favorite of hers. My mom always made pineapple upside down cake for her on Mother’s Day and on her birthday. Because of that, pineapple upside down cake has nostalgic properties for me. One bite and I’m transported to my Grandma’s kitchen.
