Simple Pineapple Cake

I know I have posted this recipe before but here it is again. My nieces and nephew really like it. My grandpa got this recipe awhile back when grandma was in a nursing home it was published in a newsletter that went out and he always made it. He gave the recipe to me.

1 Angel Food Cake Mix (the one step cake mix)

1 20 oz can crushed pineapple undrained

Mix the cake mix, and crushed pineapple together until well blended. Put into a 9X13 cake pan that has been sprayed. Bake in a 325 oven until done. (mine takes about 35 minutes) Pineapple can be substituted for a large can of mandarin oranges. I rarely frost mine but they wanted frosting so put powder sugar on it. Could use cool whip also.

I have little helpers

My nephew Jackson 5, is waiting to play MarioKart after helping my son Ryan move some stuff from the front room.

My niece Madison 8, vaccuming the front room after the stuff was moved out.

My niece Kristen 6, helping with the dishes and also making a cake for supper.

When they come we always have spaghetti, salad and garlic bread.

Good Chilly Night Supper

Had this for supper with homemade bread last night. Yummy!

Ham Potato Puffs

I have taken these 3 or 4 places now and everybody asks me for the recipe. They go fast.

1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 cup cubed fully cooked ham
1 cup leftover mashed potatoes
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Press each biscuit onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased muffin pan. (cupcake) In a large bowl, combine the ham, potatoes, 1/2 cup of cheese, parsley and garlic powder,

Spoon 1/4 cup of mixture into each biscuit. Sprinkle with remaining cheese (I normally do this after they are done and then I put some on top and put in oven for just a couple of minutes). Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.

Yield: 10 puffs
(using jumbo biscuits, you get 8)

Have been thinking of trying bacon, maybe sausage with onion and peppers and also maybe like taco flavored.
