Your Lucky Day

Who loves a good Oreo? Its probably safe to say 99% of the population adores them (For real, who ever eats only the suggested 2 cookie serving size?!). Who loves a good cake? Once again, is 99% of us a safe bet? (I don't always know the serving sizes of cakes, but I probably often go at least a little over.


So what if we put the two wonders together? Is it possible to put that much goodness together or would it cause a complete overload of greatness and just explode?

Okay, maybe I'm getting carried away, but it is possible to combine them (and it is GOOD). Good enough to get three different combinations of the same two desserts!! Consider this one blessed and lucky day! You must have done something right today.

It all started with a talk with my mom (aren't those talks with those we love, especially a mother, just the greatest? It always lifts my day and I usually walk away with something, whether it's a smile, advice, or in this case a recipe!)

Tangent: If its been a while since you've talked to a loved one, whoever it may be, can I suggest it as a great and wonderful thing. If you don't know what to talk about, try asking them about them. Often people will be fine talking if you ask them questions about their day, etc. You never know, this could be your lucky day. Give it a try and tell someone they are loved…and listen.

So, I was talking to my mom looking for more dessert recipes and she reminded me of the Oreo cake she has made. How could I have forgotten it?! If you thought an Oreo was rich, woah…wait until you try this cake. It says it serves 12, but if I remember right, it was rich enough I needed s smaller piece! It is like eating an oversized Oreo.


That is the first recipe that I've included (pictured at beginning of article), the Cookies and Cream Cake. While I was searching for it on the web, I came across two more Oreo cakes! They looked awesome enough to include. Plus, they all came from Taste of Home and I'm pretty sure I've always liked their recipes. (You may have noticed that already. I capture their recipes all of the time!)


So if any of you get to trying the other two cake recipes before I get a chance, would you mind letting me know how it goes? Thanks! Once again, we love to hear from you! And I am really interested in those cakes….
