Remember those tin lunchboxes everyone had as a kid? They were sturdy little lunch pails that held everything from your sandwich and juice box to your pudding or fruit cup. Sometimes they even had a Fruit-by-the-foot inside, and everything fit together perfectly--a little bit like a well-played game of Tetris. 

The Tin Lunchbox (that's us!) does the same thing: We provide a variety of shared information from featured artists and literary endeavors to recipe sharing that all fits flawlessly into one place. Granted, we aren't working with physical  lunchboxes, but it is fun to imagine all the same.

Pumpkin Upside Down Cake

Ever since I can remember, we've had some form of this recipe at every fall/winter holiday. It was much more prevalent when I was younger, but when I found the recipe again, I took it home. I make it at least three times a year. It makes a whole 13x9 pan full, so it is not necessarily easy on the stomach. But it is so, so easy on the tastebuds. 

Here it is: 

This recipe ain't no joke. What recipes do you cherish? Tell us about them!
