In celebration of my new web address http://www.serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com/! I made a pineapple upside down cake! Is there anything like pineapple and caramalley goodness topped with cake? There couldn't possibly be! I have been perfecting this for a while and oh my is it good! The cake is moist with a nice crumb! Truth be told I could eat the ring all the way around the outside, then the pineapples and cake. I love the way the caramel and cake come together with the flavor of pineapple and create a little crunch along the edge..
This would have been posted earlier in the week but I was in a total state of melt down as I was playing around with the design of the blog when some how I managed to delete my template and anything that kept my blog functioning! After 2 days of stressing, worrying and slaving I think I have it back to operational, there are still somethings I could improve but hopefully it works well for now! Please let me know if you notice any kinks I can try to resolve! I thought I was even smart and backed up my template but for some reason it had an error I couldn't resolve so I had a total overhaul! I am just so thankful to be back to share this wonderful cake recipe with all of you and celebrate the new blog space!

Smitten Foodie nominated me for the The Versatile Blogger award! I am so excited I think my kids think I finally lost it, as I was dancing with a little running man action, sorry if you are too young to remember the running man I can do a separate post on that later... I am so thankful to each and everyone of you, I feel so blessed by the friendship that I have developed and the things I have learned over this past year. There have been so many times when I have wondered if anyone even read the blog and then I would receive a wonderful comment reminding me of why I am doing this. I feel so blessed by each and everyone of you!

Did you know 1 serving of cauliflower only has 28 calories compared to 134 calories in mashed potatoes. These are so tasty, a great substitute for mashed potatoes. L.J. and I tried these out on Wednesday night while the other kids where at friends houses and he couldn't even tell the difference! There is a slight texture difference and the cauliflower has a slightly sweeter taste then potatoes but by the time it was fully loaded it served the prefect accompaniment to my fried pork chops and kale! Move on over potatoes I have found a replacement for you!

Ok, I admit the names a bit deceiving, this has no cream in it but that was the name the kids came up with! It does have a nice creamy texture from the blending of the sauce and the Parmesan cheese. It was creamy liciousness, oh so good, can I have another plate please? This was one of those meals of looking in the fridge and trying to decide what to make with what you have, but it will now become a staple in our house thanks to the kiddo's and the hubby. He informed me this is his kind of dinner and then placed the dibs on the leftover's for work. I don't see how that is fair since I did cook it! Actually he always seems to win all the tasty leftovers and leaves me to scavenge through the fridge for my lunch! Oh well..He is super de duper awesome and sweet so I guess I will leave well enough alone and let him continue to show off his leftover's at work. Since I super de duper LOVE him with all my heart!
By the way the family also informed me I better be sharing my recipe with all of you! So here it goes!
This recips was shared at The Weekend Potluck , My Crowded Kitchen Fabulous Friday's 9 and The Country Momma Cooks.
