I thought I would share My Favorite 16 yr old boy's Favorite meal with you!
First, he asked for...

Cajun Fettuccine Alfredo (I posted that recipe today on Craving Comfort) You can find the complete recipe and pictures by clicking the link below.

For dessert, He always requests My famous Pineapple Upside-Down Cake.
I've posted the recipe below....

I remember my mom making Pineapple Up-Side down Cake.
I loved it!
I loved the super-sweet and moist topping with it's embedded fruit.
I loved the tender cake.
I loved everything about it!

I have tried many recipes for this classic cake.
None were as perfect as this one.

I kinda feel bad,because it's so easy and it starts with a boxed cake mix!
Try it!
I bet you'll agree, It's the Best I've ever had...
And by far, the easiest!
