That’s funny! I know this recipe as pineapple sunshine cake, not Hawaiian wedding cake!
Pineapple Sunshine Cake
For the Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
½ cup oil
1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple, do not drain
1 (8 oz) container whipped topping, thawed
1 3oz box instant vanilla pudding
1 8oz can crushed pineapple, do not drain
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil, and 1 can of crushed pineapple with the juice (or half of a large can) and mix well.
Pour into prepared baking pan and bake for 25 – 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
Cool completely on a wire rack.
In a medium sized bowl, fold together whipped topping, a 3oz box of vanilla pudding, and 1 can crushed pineapple with the juice (or other half of can if using a 16oz can). Spread over the top of the cooled cake.
omg this is so awesome, but sometimes if i don’t have sour cream i make it with plain greek yogurt (or vanilla greek yogurt!!). the flavors really mingle together nicely. i also like to add a handful of chopped walnuts to the top and some halved cherries, but that kind of takes away from the 5 cups, hahahaha

what do you serve with it?
Salad, baked potato, sweet potato fries.. rice, quinoa & veggies, etc
Whatever you want to serve with it. You could serve it with egg noodles if you wanted.
This one should be called Artichoke Lasagne rather than “cheesecake” – which is a sweet dish consisting of 2 or more layers.
I think this one is already on the site under pudding mixes.January 23, 2014 at 2:29 am in reply to: B101 Challenge: Foods That’ll Re-Grow from Kitchen Scraps #448965
One item that I’ve grown from leftover scraps is fresh Ginger. It’s super easy to regorw, you just slice of a section of ginger rhizome (the rhizome is the really thick knobbly part that you cook with) in potting soil with the smallest buds facing upward.
You must keep Ginger in lightly filtered, not direct, sunlight in a warm moist environment. I keep it in a windowsill that has a light filtering blind down all the time.
The plant will establish itself really fast and when you’re ready to harvest, all you have to do is pull up the whole plant, roots and all.
Remove a piece of the rhizome, and re-plant it to start all over again!December 20, 2013 at 1:37 pm in reply to: Budget101.com Countdown to Christmas Challenge Day #2 – (4 days left!) #445897Quote:do you like to get homemade christmas gifts? if so, tell about the best homemade gift you’ve ever gotten (or given!)
favorite gift to give: homemade gift baskets with mixes. everyone always loves them!
favorite homemade gift to receive: i love getting herb infused oils to cook with. my sister in law has an amazing garden and last year gave me an entire set of herb infused oils (rosemary, lavender, calendula, & thyme) they were amazing! she put them in a basket lined with bread dipping mixes and a loaf of homemade sourdough.
it was gorgeous and tasty!
This one is still working for me in case anyone is interested.
I don’t know what everyone else does with their thanksgiving leftovers, but I like to make Thanksgiving Panini’s!
Here’s what you’ll need to make them:
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 slices sourdough sandwich bread
2 slices Swiss
1/3 cup shredded leftover roasted or fried turkey
3 tablespoons leftover cranberry sauce
1/3 cup leftover stuffing
2 tablespoons leftover giblet gravy
butter, at room temperature
Make sure that you Spread the mustard on both slices of bread, then lay a slice of cheese on each half piece. On one side arrange the turkey and the cranberry sauce. On the other side lay on the stuffing/dressing and spoon the gravy over the top.
Mash it together quickly to keep the insides from falling out then spread the top side of the bread with 1 tsp of the butter.
Invert the sandwich, butter-side down, onto a hot panini maker (or a grill pan or skillet over medium-low heat). Spread the top with the remaining 1 tsp of butter.
Close the panini maker and grill the sandwich until the bread is crusty and golden, the fillings are hot, and the cheese is melted. Flip the sandwich halfway through to grill the other side
Ooh, I’d love the laundry sauce Liss! Here’s my Unique Tip: If you want to create a spooky looking book such as a Book of Shadows or a “Spell” book etc, you can transform an old hardcover book by adding a thin picture fram that matches the size of the book and then spray paint it to match the book and cover. Before spraying use a hot glue gun with a metallic glue (yes, they have colors) to create a design on the front of the book.
These are great for making Grim’s or Spooky looking books. For the “Lock” cut up an old belt that no long fits and attach it with a heavy duty glue (such as gorilla glue).October 1, 2013 at 11:09 am in reply to: Appetizers for your Christmas and New Years Eve Parties #444277

One of my favorites is making pretzel salad and placing it in small cups with spoons for a different item.
Ohh that sounds great, would you mind sharing your recipe??October 1, 2013 at 11:07 am in reply to: In honor of all those coffee drinkers …what does your Mug say about you? #444276
Mine says “Coffee Makes Me Poop” lol- it was a gift, I didn’t buy it!
Yes, it’s impacting our family, but I WANT them to shut down. I want those fools to stop shoving their “healthcare plan” down our throats! I tried signing up for coverage as the law mandates but it’s adding $590 a month to our expenses and like you, that’s with no dat gum coverage!
i don’t know how they expect people to magically come up with that money and if you don’t they tax you for not having insurance, did you know that? they actually tax you at the end of the year like $285 per month, per family.
How is that even constitutional or legal??
I prefer to bring dessert to our gatherings, then I know everyone will want to eat it, lol
I know of several Cool Whip “Dump” recipes for desserts:
