by Divine Domesticity on October 20th, 2008

Earlier this week I was happy to tell family and friends that I had yet to get the pregnancy uber exhaustion, and hadn't had an increase in appetite yet. I totally JINXED myself. Good one, Ali. 

Times like this call for short cuts, and I'm happy to provide a cheaters recipe for Upside Down Pineapple Cake
  • Mango could also be substituted for a yummy variation.
