Dad’s Birthday

Hope you don't mind me catching you up on things from a week ago. It’s Family Friday!

Last Saturday was my dad’s birthday. I won’t mention his age because that would give away that he was only two when I was born.

He loves all things sweet and has his favorite of Pecan Pie, but I made him something different this year and will share the recipe.

I originally made the cake for Mr. JCrew’s birthday.

When we finished it, I was asking who had the next birthday so I could make it again. February has sooo many birthday’s in it. I never realized it til this year.

February birthday’s:

-Jessica, my close friend—Jackson, my mom’s dog --- Suzy, my MIL--- Lindy, my close friend --- Jessica, friend --- Mr. JCrew --- Mike, my dad --- Hannah, my niece. And there are other acquaintances that FaceBook let me know about.

Cookies n Cream Cake Recipe

-Vanilla box of cake mix

- 30 oreos

- 8 oz cream cheese (softened)

- 1/4t vanilla extract

Preparation: Get all your ingredients out and let the cream cheese and cool whip soften

Make the cake mix according to box instructions (egg, oil, mixing time, etc) The KEY to a fluffy cake is the electric mixing. I just have a hand mixer I use.

Fold in 15 crumbled Oreos into the cake batter.

Pour it into the 9x13 pan and cook in the oven according to the package instructions.

For the frosting:

Blend cream cheese and powdered sugar together.

You may have noticed, I bought Publix brand of everything I could… except the Oreos! Store brand products are usually just as good as name brand, but Mr. JCrew and I have made some discoveries of food items that aren’t. Oreos is one of them. You just can’t imitate Oreos!

Sorry if I forgot someone with a February birthday. Happy FRIDAY!
