Here's a Great BLOG!!

It's loaded this awesome and easy recipes!! Can't wait to try this dessert:

Cake Mix. SHAZAM! Dessert.

Piece of Cake
Boxed cake mixes are a gift to any busy cook, but it must be admitted that they can be just a tiny bit, well, uninteresting. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however. Think of them, rather, as an invitation to creativity.
A boxed cake mix can be the platform for so many interesting recipes. Here is one we’d like to share. Maybe because the original Pineapple Upside Down Cake is such a fussy recipe, we really like this 5-ingredient slow-cooker version.
It’s simple to put together and the results are superb: rich, sweet, and satisfyingly gooey. You may never bother with the from-scratch version again!
