How to Make Pineapple Cake/Casserole Thing: Recipe/Cooking


I forgot the actual name of this. I should probably ask my sister, eventually. Oh well. All you need to know is it's like a really tasty food thing with pineapple, and cinnamon, (though we forgot to actually put the cinnamon in when we made it), and sugar, and bread crumbs, and stuff like that.


  

You will need:
Sugar
Cinnamon
Butter
Bread
Crushed Pineapple
Eggs

Put whole stick of butter in bowl.


Then a cup of sugar.


Then stir.

And beat.

And add an egg.

Add 3 eggs (overall).

Then stir.



Then put in your pineapple.

Start pulling apart your bread and layering it across the bowl.

My four-year-old nephew came to help. 

Pour the mix into bowl.



This is what it should look like before putting it into oven.

This is how it should look when it's done.

Because he's cute.

When to Put a Comma Before 'And'

Okay, so even I was confused for a while about this one. Some people say you have to have a comma before all conjunctions (and, but, or, etc.), and others say you don't ever need a comma before 'and'. So, which is it?

Niether.

There are two main situations when you'll need a comma before 'and'. First, is called a serial comma (by the way, I love that name! It makes me imagine this killer comma! ... literally.) The serial comma is used when you have three or more items in a list.

Example: In order for humans to live they need food, oxygen, and love.

Situation number two: You use a comma when you have two independent clauses (aka: something that could stand alone as a separate sentence if it wanted.)

Example: Tara is really devoted to her studies, and she passes every test. 

When you won't need a comma: Tara is a really devoted to her studies and passes every test. 

'Passes every test' cannot stand alone, but 'she passes every test' can. See the difference?
