I cook for necessity..
I bake for happiness, and mainly for the happiness of creating something and then of course eating it afterward. 🙂
Now, I’m not going to claim that I am a fantastic baker. I can’t decorate things worth crap, I leave that up to my best friend Jo, but to me it doesn’t matter what it looks like as long as it tastes good. And really my kids are the same way and since I bake as much for them as myself, that is what’s important.
Probably my favorite thing to do is let my kids in on the baking magic. For this reason I like to use pre-made mixes. They lend just enough measuring for the kids to practice and let me keep my sanity by not having to dig through a ton of ingredients. Plus, there are some super cool creations you can make just by adding your own special touches.
Betty Crocker products are a permanent staple in my pantry. I love to be able to keep a couple pouches of cookie mix in there for those times when I want something sweet, or I feel like making ice cream cookie sandwiches, (a favorite in my house.)
Well, this Spring Betty Crocker is on a mission to make your memories a little sweeter! They have launched a new site called Bake Sweet Memories which features a wide range of sweet treats you can whip up. There are also some super yummy looking breakfast bakes that I’m looking forward to trying at my next mom potluck!
If the website weren’t enough, Better Crocker and Safeway want to provide you with a good start for baking some sweet memories of your own!
I have never used a silicone “pan” and boy I love it! I’m going to slowly start replacing all my cupcake pans with silicone as well.
So without delay…
