Happy spring everyone! I am so glad we are out of winter and into spring (in most of the United States). The air smells different, feels different and I love seeing the puffs of high white clouds. There is still a chill in the air, but daffodils are blooming and birds are singing. I love hearing birds sing first thing in the morning when I wake up.
As you can see I gave my blog a makeover. It’s funny how we women like to get makeovers. Our hair, our wardrobe, our shoes, sometimes it just time for a makeover. Like our kitchens. My first kitchen had apples as the decor, then I switched to birdhouses. My second home’s kitchen had a vineyard/wine theme, that carried over into our third home’s kitchen. Now in our fourth and final home I have coffee decor. I love a good cup of coffee!! Especially now with spring here, I usually put on a strong pot around 3pm. Yum, and to go with the coffee I am gonna give you a tasty recipe that my grandma made when I was little.
MANDARIN ORANGE CAKE
1 box butter cake mix 1/2 c. oil (or applesauce)
4 eggs 1 can mandarin oranges
1 box vanilla pudding 1 small can crushed pineapple
1 tub Cool Whip
Mix cake mix, eggs, oil and mandarin oranges together. Pour into 9×13 inch greased pan. Bake 350 for 25-30 min. COOL.
Mix vanilla pudding and pineapple together until stiff. Fold in Cool Whip and spread on cooled cake! YUMMY!!
So what kind of makeovers are you in the process of doing?
