Memorial Day is coming up quickly!  Are you ready to kick off summer!?!  I sure am!

Typically, we spend the weekend at BBQs and then our neighborhood pool opens so there’s always the first dip to start our summer off right.  But being a military family, we also take a moment to honor WHY we celebrate Memorial Day.

It isn’t about the great sales on a new grill, or [finally] getting a 3-day weekend to spend with the family.  It’s about honoring those men and women who gave their lives to serve our great nation in the Armed Services.

One way I like to show my appreciation during Memorial Day is to give back to those troops still serving.  Whether it’s by providing meals to those who are working on the holiday, or just swinging by with some cookies to say, “thanks.” I know it isn’t easy for them to see the rest of us enjoy our holiday while they are still serving and protecting.

Coca-Cola Zero and OREO Cookie Crumble Cake Recipe

I’m excited to partner with Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser for this Coca-Cola Zero™ and OREO Cookie Crumble Cake post. All opinions are mine alone. #GreatTasteTourney #CollectiveBias


It’s the middle of March, and besides crazy weather patterns here in Colorado (70 degrees one day, snow and ice the next), we also know it’s the start of The Big Tournament, the ultimate in basketball playoffs.  I don’t know about you, but I feel like everyone around me is talking about their brackets – or busted brackets at this point.  The chatter around my office is at an all-time high about whose bracket is going to win the big office pool.  Each meeting starts with a good 5 minutes of trash talking.  It’s a fun way to keep the energies up, when the weather just won’t cooperate.

This Coke Zero and OREO Cookie Crumble Cake is the perfect mid-day office snack to take in and share with coworkers, whether they are celebrating their latest victories, or just want to wallow in their losses.

It’s also a perfect party treat to take with you if you happen to be visiting friends for the latest games.  This quick, easy recipe is perfect for game day.  Share this recipe with a crowd!  It’s simple to make, and lets you get back to the game! (more…)
