Ready for a
fun and yummy recipe??
 
This one comes with a bonus!!
You can use stuff up from your pantry too!
---------------
Take 1 cake mix (yellow or white) and bake according to directions
 
While that’s baking, take 1 (20 oz) can pineapple (crushed or tidbits) – pour (with juice) in a saucepan, add 1 cup sugar, heat until sugar dissolves, bring to a boil and then remove from heat.
 
Take 2 small packages of pudding
{vanilla or banana, etc – again, whatever you have in the pantry} and make according to directions, let set in the fridge.

Spread  1 1/2 cups coconut on a baking tray
and toast in the oven

tick tock tick tock…okay - now your cake is done and out of the oven, right?

poke holes in it with a fork
{stab stab stab away!} - mmmwwhhhhahhhahh!!
Now that you’ve gotten your aggressions out on the cake…Pour the pineapple and juices over the cake
 
Let the cake completely cool, then slather the pudding over the top and then spread whipped cream (real whipped cream, cool whip or dream whip etc.) for the top layer
Sprinkle with the toasted coconut and Chill for at least an hour

This cake has tons of variations too!
sometimes I add raspberries or strawberries
sometimes a layer of banana,
sometimes a layer of hot fudge or hazelnut spread
(I know YUM right?)
 
Creamy Pineapple Layer Cake…Tropical Slush Cake…no matter what you want to to call it…it’s good!
 
Happy Spring, y’all!!

Around here lately…

I know I haven’t been posting as frequently here on the blog…I’d like to…and I think about it….oh believe me…I have SOOOO many ideas and drafts of blog posts written in my head.  There is not a lack of creativity or ideas or creations.  It is simply…a lack of time.

I KNOW you ALL probably have the same struggle, right?  What is the KeY to getting it all done?

northern cottage keys

I was feeling a little down on myself for not getting enough done on my ever-lengthy to-do list…

Today I tidied up the house, did 3 loads of laundry, baked 4 dozen cookies (without eating any…yet…patting myself on the back for that self-control), vacuumed, made a QuiLT, a few GaRLaNDS and a DiSHMaT, responded to custom SHoP inquiries, packaged up completed orders, made notes about potential future products that are still forming in my mind….whew!  and then…kids home, help with homework, making dinner, tidying up the house…again!

around here

So instead of thinking about what didn’t perhaps get done, I concentrated on what I DID accomplish!! 

And you know what?  When we really think about all we do in a day (or even an hour!)…we are pretty stinkin’ amazing. 

We aRe AWeSoMe!!  You…me…all the amazing women we all know…. who juggle and accomplish and just plain get stuff done!  I applaud you…I am inspired by you!

So…I’m not going to be so hard on myself about the old blog…I get to post when I can.  I get to fit it around the really important things…feeding my little family (physically & spiritually), homekeeping, growing MY BLoSSoMiNG BuSiNeSS, preparing for some exciting upcoming business events (I’ll share more on these as we get closer!)  

Thank you for reading and being with me on this journey and for coming back to see what might be new around the Northern Cottage…never know what you might find!!

HaPPY HaPPY DaY to Y’aLL!!!
