    Coconut Pineapple Tart

    It’s a cool (for July…around 80 degrees) and rainy day in Michigan today, but we’ve had our share of tropical weather lately! It’s been consistently in the 90s and humid…and we’re currently living with my in-laws…with no AC. Let’s just say I’m very aware of the weather. 😉 I’m sure you’ll all feeling pretty tropical lately, too, so it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to my Coconut Pineapple Tart!

    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.
