Everyone has probably tried a pineapple upside down cake at least once. They have several positive attributes; they're really easy to make, they taste good, and they're basically kind of fun and cool. When I was a child, I was fascinated whenever my mom made one. She always made hers in a big bla...

7. "I'm All Shook Up" Over Elvis Cake

8. Love Vintage Cookie Jars?
Love Vintage Cookie Jars?
I started collecting vintage cookie jars completely by accident. During my growing-up years my family had a pig cookie jar that was both well-loved and well-used.

9. Bake a Perfect Pound Cake
Bake a Perfect Pound Cake
I love pound cake. Growing up I never gave much thought to how they were created, but just took for granted the perfect slices that regularly found their way to my plate.

Mention tea cakes to any Southerner over a certain age and almost everyone has a story to tell. When I was growing up, tea cakes were the only cookies that were commonly made at our house.
