Thank Goodness For You



No… I didn’t just spell TGIF incorrectly!

I do mean TGFY –

Thank Goodness For You!

Although I didn’t look in the mirror, I’m sure my cheeks were bright pink all day yesterday, as I read your compliments and congratulations.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 😀


For this week’s Friday Favorites, I have a delicious recipe for a cake that’s special enough for company, but easy enough to have any time!

bakingtoolsWhen I first got married, many of our friends were also young couples, and none of us had any extra money for entertaining. Planning a nice dinner for a group was a costly proposition, so we used to have each other over for “dessert”. Not only was it cheaper, but it was much less work for the hostess, too! We’d take turns hosting the gang, and it was fun to make a cake or pie; put on a big pot of coffee; and relax over good conversation with lots of laughter.

Here’s the kind of recipe (from one of my vintage cookbooks) that we would serve.

Easy Pineapple Cake

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 large can crushed pineapple
1-1/2 cups chopped nuts

In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients thoroughly. Stir with a wooden spoon.
Pour mixture into a greased 9x13x2 inch pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until light brown or until toothpick comes out clean.

Use you own favorite frosting or serve with whipped cream or ice cream!


Happy Weekend!

See you Monday for a new giveaway and question. 😀
