Delicious Dump Cake


TwitterMoms asked us to learn about the Canned Food Alliance and to post one of our favorite recipes that involves canned foods!

Dump cake is a delicious and extremely easy treat to make! It consists of canned fruits along with a few other ingredients, and you have a delicious cake!

You need:
1 can cherry pie filling
1 can crushed pineapple
1 box yellow cake mix, dry
2 sticks melted butter

You need to dump everything in the ingredients list into your pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remember to put all of the ingredients in order so that you have a nice layered look, and so that it tastes good! Let me know how it turns out and enjoy!

Did you know that canned foods have been around for about 200 years? I learned that from the Canned Foods from Field To Tables youtube video! I also learned that vegatables and fruits are picked right when they are prime and are cleaned before they are canned! Watch it for yourself below!

Friend Making Monday

Good morning to all!

Have you entered my Gorgeous Hair piece giveaway? Its valued at $60, its gorgeous, and there aren't many entries! Click here to enter!

I thought that it would be fun to participate in Friend Making Monday!

This weeks question is, What did you do this weekend?

~On Saturday, it was B-Bop wear little 4-Hers came and the Ambassadors taught them animal projects. Kristi and I taught horse and helped the kids make these cute little vintage/rustic signs that they could choose to say either "Howdy" or "Ride" (pictures to come!)
~After B-Bop, we went to get our free pretzel at Auntie Annies and came home super tired, considering that all of us Ambies didn't get to sleep until 4:30, which resulted in 2 hours of sleep!

~On Sunday we slept in (B-Bop recovery!) and we brought my Great Grandpas desk into my room, I am hoping to refinish it, but it looks really nice in my room just like it is for now!

So that was my week! How has yours been so far?

See the Gorilla shirt? Jenny made it using a tutorial from the fabulous MADE and by using the gorilla stencil from Ottobredesign!

I just discovered this great place for downloading awesome graphics to use in your projects!


I am thinking about using the Archery one, as my brother and I have been shooting Archery for years!

I have found some of the sweetest little girls shoes ever. Take a look for yourself!!

The line and her blog is called "Mia Joie," which is also the name of her daughter!

Her blog is a lot of fun to click through and look at all of her creations as well!

Gasp! These little boots!

These would be beautiful for a little flower girl!
