This cake is pretty simple and really tasty. I served this a couple times and at both times it was praised. I prefer it cold but it can be served luke warm/warm.

You can add any fruit you like, I happen to have strawberries. Top with powdered sugar and you’re good to go!

It takes maybe 10 min to put together and 40-45 min to cook. Did I mention it’s an easy cake? 🙂

Pineapple Chicken Quesadilla’s & Vanilla Blueberries

Saw this recipe on the internet somewhere and I was sold. No pictures needed. Why hadn’t I thought of this before?! It’s an AMAZING mix, Mexican and Hawaiian. It’s a beautiful thing. I’m still trying to figure out how to make the pictures bigger. It is possible, just need time with Trav to see how to do it.

Enjoy your Wednesday with some pineapple and blueberries!

Recipe:

OK, so this is NOTHING special. Just make your favorite quesadilla and add pineapple. I just had cheese, salsa, chicken and pineapple on corn tortillas. Yummmm. I’m a simple gal…well in some areas. 😉

The blueberries is just the berries with sugar and vanilla flavoring. Emma, who doesn’t eat them a whole lot, ate tons. I will ALWAYS add vanilla to all my fruit.

Oh, click on the picture to see it close up, you especially want to do this on the blueberries. Wow, and with NO PHOTO EDITING! I love my new camera…

Sweet Fruit

OK, so I found this AMAZING  blog with tons of awesome ideas. For moms, wifes, party planners, people who just needs to organize things better (me) and photographers. Dig in.

While roaming, I found this super cute idea. I thought that I could do this easily enough and even though it doesn’t look as good as her post (it never does) it’ll still show my meaning.  Here is her post. I hope you can adopt it to those who you love.

You are 'Pear-fect'!

I’m going to randomly add these into Trav’s lunches

You are the apple of my eye

Awwww
