It's been too long!!! Giveaway and Pumpkin Upside Down Cake Recipe

It's been way to long and I've missed all the blogging and visiting. How about a fast giveaway (Thanksgiving Apron), drawing will be this Thursday and mailed out on Friday. You should get it for Thanksgiving. Sorry but it will have to be in the states to do this. If you read my blog you'll know about it, so just for the ones that pop by.

Traveling to Virgina on vacation was wonderful. I can't download my photos on the blog. I bought a larger card for my camera and it want read it. Now I need a card reader for this one, so they will have to be put on later. We had a great time seeing all the history sites and the fall leaves were beautiful.

Oh what is better that beautiful apron or that yummy recipe? Sure hope I won't have pick and that I'll be able to have both. OK that sounded way to greedy didn't it. LOL

I love the apron! So cute and perfect to wear all day on Thanksgiving as I serve everyone.

Hugs,
Joanne

I've wondered where you've been. You've been missed. I hope the vacation helped you to rest up and get ready for the busy holiday season.
Love the apron out of Thanksgiving fabric, and I'll be trying your recipe soon.

Cathy said...

What a fabulous apron! That fabric is just gorgeous! And this recipe sounds delish! I'll be giving it a try. How lucky to go to Virgina! I've always hoped to visit there in the fall, with all of their gorgeous color. Can't wait to see pictures when you have time. Hope all is well and thank you for offering such a wonderful giveaway!

This apron is wonderful! And I know, ladies, because I'm blessed enough to have one just like it! Thank you again, Bonnie! You don't need to put me in the running for this one (though I'm sure my daughters would love one, too! LOL), but I wanted to pop in and say how beautiful it really is!

The recipe sounds great, too!

Deb said...

Kaaren said...

Welcome back, Bonnie. We missed you.

I have not had a pineapple cake in forever. Thank you for bringing this sweet treat back to my memory. I'm going to have to pop one in the oven this week.

Now that is one fantastic apron!!! So beautiful. This would be so beautiful to use not just for Thanksgiving but all through the Fall season. Oh who am I kidding??? I'd wear it all year round. I just love the fabric print and the style is so feminine. It's adorable.

Terry said...

Love the apron! Can't wait to make the upside down cake...it sounds yummy! Thanks so much! :0)

Jenny said...

The apron is lovely. I'd be so happy to wear it year-round in the kitchen. I just made some pumpkin pie brioche, and your recipe looks yummy as well. The problem I run into with pumpkin recipes is my husband doesn't care for pumpkin! (Weirdo!) So I make them during the week when he is working and invite my sister over who appreciates pumpkin.
Thanks for the giveaway!
~Jenny~

Shari said...

That pumpkin pie sounds so yummy! Thanks for the recipe - how much is the quantity for the pumpkin - can't get canned so will have to steam my own... and don't enter me in the comp as I live in Oz... so glad you had a good holiday!

YankeeQuilter said...

Nice apron...and thanks for the recipe. I was looking for something other than pumpkin bread or pumpkin roll (my standbys) to try this year!

SandyQuilts said...

Just COPY your photos from your camera to your computers hard drive. Then you can upload.

I don't upload my photos to blogger. I store everything on webshots.com and then do link it. This way it doesn't count against my blogger storage.

Good luck.

Rochelle said...

That recipe looks yummy. And the apron is adorable.

Linda B said...

I was just thinking I needed to make an apron for myself. Maybe you can save me from that chore!! I love this one.
My husband is lactose intolerant, so I can't make the cake for him, but maybe I can take it to one of my many holiday dinners. It looks to die for. Thanks
Oh, my word verification is exitasy, ecstasy! Ha.
