This post has been sponsored by Country Crock, but is my own thoughts and opinions.
So many times, the house has been a mess, the kids have been running around like crazy and my to-do list is a mile long. When I have a day like that, the last thing I should do is get all the kids in the kitchen to bake, right? But sometimes that is the smartest thing to do. When I put away all the distractions of life and just get in the kitchen to spend time with my kids while we make a delicious treat, my stress just melts away. When Mama is happy, the kids are happy! But really, seeing how happy my kids are in the kitchen with me is what makes me happy. I love being able to spend time with them and connect in a low-key way. There’s lots of talking, singing and having fun – right in our own home.
Country Crock® knows that “So Much Good Happens When We Bake”, which is why I love their fantastic new campaign that celebrates family togetherness in the kitchen and around the dinner table. Time spent in the kitchen isn’t just about baking a meal – it’s about spending time with your family baking Grandma’s special oatmeal cookies. It’s sharing the history of those cookies with your children and telling them stories of the past. It’s about teaching them the patience of watching ingredients come together to make something special. Patience, togetherness and sharing – those are the values that are important to our family and also values inherent to the Country Crock® brand.
With Mother’s Day approaching, Country Crock® is bringing a unique, family-fun opportunity to the NYC Tri-State area to surprise moms with special cookie cutters created by their special kitchen helpers … their kids! The cookie cutters will be created on-site by a 3-D printer, and inspired by the drawings kids will be creating while at the store. The families can take their one-of-a-kind cookie cutter home to create even more special memories together. How fun is that?! You can check out MY personalized cookie cutter below – it’s a sippy cup, of course! And read on to see how you can win your own!
Country Crock® has long been used in our kitchen – it’s a versatile buttery spread that makes home-baked cookies chewy and delicious, and can be used in the kitchen whether you’re cooking, baking, sautéing or topping your favorite dishes. Visit www.CountryCrock.com/recipes for recipes and meal inspiration.
With the help of a friendly grocery store, Country Crock was able to share with unsuspecting families the good that happens, when we bake. All that was needed were a few colored pencils, the modern magic of a 3D printer, and the reminder that watching a child’s imagination come to life is one of the special joys of baking together.
