#WhenWeBake Memories are Made + Country Crock Prize Pack #Giveaway – Sponsored Video

Some of my best memories have been made in the kitchen, both as a parent and with my own parents. I have fond memories of my dad teaching me to cook, chili, spaghetti and meatloaf are among a few of the recipes I learned from him. My mom on the other hand instructed me in the art of baking, especially around the holidays. I can remember the house constantly filled with the smell of fresh baked cookies as she made batch after batch of so many different varieties, and sometimes, I got to help. I cherished those moments with her in the kitchen as a child, and still do as an adult. Now, I make even more memories in the kitchen with my own children.

The boys love to cook and especially bake. They are constantly begging to make cookies, and when I oblige, we always have a good time coating each other in flower and licking the spatulas and bowls clean. Country Crock understands these moments as a family and how very special they are. They understand that time spent in the kitchen is not just about baking, but about the values we can all share as a family. Values like patience, sharing and togetherness, values made even more important in a world ruled by technology and text speak.

That is the driving force behind Country Crock’s latest “So Much Good Happens When We Bake” campaign. As part of this campaign, Country Crock life surprise event in the NYC Tri-State area, where they surprised some moms just in time for Mother’s Day with some awesome 3-D printed cookie cutters based on their children’s designs so that they could create new personal memories in the kitchen. Check out the video below!




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. Don’t miss the original film in the #WhenWeBake series at WhenWeBake.com.

Country Crock sent my boys and I an incredible gift pack full of great quality baking items for the kitchen including Crate and Barrel mixing bowls, measuring cups, rolling pin and a coupon for a Country Crock product of our choice. I always buy the Country Crock with Calcium, besides being great for baking, it has only 1 point per tablespoon for Weight Watchers, which is important to me.

Also included in our gift basket was a 3-D printed camper cookie cutter that was based on a design idea that I can them. This means so much to us personally, as we prepare to head out on our #90DayRoadTrip. So, the boys and I got together a few nights ago and made camper shaped sugar cookies. We had a fantastic time, and made some terrific memories talking about all of the places we are soon to see and discover.

  1. My favorite memory of baking in the kitchen is me and my grandmother and them teaching some old recipes when I was younger like my great grandmothers buttermilk biscuits and knowing that I am passing that along to my kids now! my4boysand1@gmail.com

  2. Some of my favorite memories are baking breads, pies and cakes with my grandmother on a wood burning stove.

  3. My favorite memory is my mom making us homemade play dough in the kitchen, now I do the same for my 3 boys

  4. I have more than one memory but enjoy watching and listening to my kids helping their Grandma in the kitchen. With 5 kids, it can get hectic, they all want to help now and Grandma doesn't have enough hands sometimes. My kids are learning a lot in the kitchen with her however.

  5. My favorite baking memories are the mistakes. Once I made homemade brownies for my baker dad. The only problem is that I left out the flour…they were brownie tar. Not good at all! But we got a laugh out of it.

  6. I remember spending time in the kitchen with my Mom and Grandmother while they showed me how to make buttermilk biscuits and pie crust from scratch. Such great times.
    Thanks for the chance!

  7. My grandma was an amazing cook and I remember holidays filled with so many of her delicious foods. When she passed away my mother inherited her beloved recipe tin. Each year my mother and I would go through that tin every holiday picking out our favorite recipes written in my grandma’s handwriting and my mother taught me how to make each one. Now that I am grown I have inherited the treasured recipe tin and each holiday I spend special time with my children teaching them how to bake those special recipes. We share memories old and new and the recipes never fail to taste wonderful, almost as great as I remember my grandma making them.

  8. Every year during blackberry season, my neighbor and I would pick buckets and buckets of berries; were around 9 or 10 years old. Then my mother would help us make pies. We did all the mixing, but mom rolled out the dough. Those were the best pies and I still remember it like it was yesterday. Oh and we're still good friends almost 40 years later. #WhenWeBake
