Country Crock’s ‘So Much Good Happens When We Bake’

I have long been a lover of baking. I have been baking pretty much my entire life and I am sharing that love with my children. As you can see above, we start them early in my family. We all love baking together and creating new recipes. Even my husband!

Baking or even cooking together does something wonderful for families. We have to work as a team. We have to be creative and most of all, we have to have fun. Some of the best times we share together are those in our family's kitchen.

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.

  1. I’ve been using Country Crock for years and I love the taste and the creaminess. What a great Mother’s Day gift basket giveaway!

    When I was a kid we would go to our grandmothers house every Sunday for dinner. We would always “help” her in the kitchen, which was mostly just snacking on the ingredients. I can remember her constantly getting onto us for being rowdy because we were “going to make the rolls fall”, which were always rising on the table when we arrived. #WhenWeBake

  3. Sarah C

    Some of my favorite memories of hanging out with my daughter have been when we are baking together in the kitchen. Licking the spatula and the beaters is a rite of passage! #WhenWeBake

  4. I love using Country Crocks butter, it tastes so much better than the competition. This whole post reminded me so much of baking with my mother when I was younger.

  5. I definitely use that more often than I use butter. It’s a great alternative for cooking and it’s super smooth for spreading.

  6. Such a sweet picture of your little baker. I never knew that you could bake with country crock!

  7. Oh I’m not sure we have Country Crock in Canada, I can’t say I’ve seen it in stores but it looks great! I love the commercials!

  8. CourtneyLynne

    Maybe it’s because I grew up with my parents always buying country crock, but I just love it! Always have it in my fridge:)

  9. laura ari

    When the kids were young, we would always bake gingerbread houses for Christmas. The kids would help bake and decorate the houses. #whenwebake

  10. This is would be fun giveaway! I’d love to enter this giveaway before end. I love baking with my grand kids.

  11. shirley

    I loved when my dad would cook with us, he would let me do more things than mom would. He would say , Honey she is old enough, and I learned to do things at an early age. It was so much fun. #WhenWeBake

  12. Natalie Lyons

    My favorite memory is when my mom would make us homemade play dough in the kitchen, now I make it for my 3 boys

  13. Country Crock is a trusted brand that I always appreciate. I try to use them whenever I can when I’m cooking. Good luck to all those who participate in the giveaway!

    One memory i have is when my mother was baking for a local restaraunt and she had to bake about 25 pies for Thanksgiving. She brought me in to help her and i was amazed at how much work she put into these. We had a fun and full day of baking and we were able to make all of the pies they needed.

  15. Sharon

    My best kitchen memory growing up was spending hours at the kitchen table with my mom and siblings in the fall, cracking and shelling the hundreds of pounds of pecans we’d picked from our trees. We’d bag and freeze them for the year, and use many of them in our holiday baking. #WhenWeBake

  16. Love the picture of your little one baking! These are the best moments. The brand sounds awesome, it’s a pity we don’t have it in South Africa.

  17. Dawn Monroe

    I remember making popcorn balls and pulled taffy with my grandpa every year at Christmas. We use to butter our hands up and pull like crazy!

  18. This is the brand we usually get, in fact we have a big tub of it in the refrigerator. Baking is such a fun boding for the whole family in the kitchen.

  19. That is such a great giveaway for mothers. I think I haven’t used Country Crock yet. Sounds good to me though. I will check it out.

  20. Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    I really like Country Crock! For the money, it can’t be beat! Plus, I love this campaign! It’s good to get the kids involved in things like cooking!

  21. She has to be the most adorable baker I have ever seen! 🙂 I have never used Country Crock, but my mom swears by this brand.

  22. Ann Bacciaglia

    I love to bake. My kids always love to help out in the kitchen. It gives us time to talk and catch up. We use Country Crock instead of butter when we can.

  23. Oh my goodness, how adorable is your little baker?! We always have a tub of Country Crock in the fridge!

  24. Bonnie @ wemake7

    What a great giveaway and post. Our family loves to cook as well together. Just tonight the kiddos and I made homemade pizza. It was fun.

  25. I don’t bake very often but I’m feeling like it this weekend. Baking is definitely more fun to do with your kids!

  26. Love the basket. I’ve been using country crock for over 20 years now…sheesh…time flies

  27. I grew up baking with my Grandma. She taught me so many tips and tricks that I get to pass on to my kids now! One of my faves were her homemade cinnamon rolls. There’s nothing like em! #WhenWeBake

  28. It’s great that there are butter substitutes out there, we have to use it sometimes when we get someone with a milk allergy who wants a cake.

  29. Shay

    When my siblings and I were younger, we used to “assist” my mother in the kitchen while she was baking. I’m sure it took twice as long, but we slowly built up baking skills while being rewarded with licking spoons, spatulas and beaters. #WhenWeBake

  30. D SCHMIDT

    My Mother is an amazing chef and growing up it as such a bonding experience for her and I. Now #WhenWeBake with my children it brings back lots of fond memories of my own childhood.

  31. We use Country Crock at home. I’d love to win that basket!! I need to bake more. It has been hard to do with our new baby in the house. Xo

  32. Carla S

    I remember the first time I baked cookies with my son when he was little. We had alot of fun and baked a bunch of different kinds of cookies. #WhenWeBake

  33. Lisa Garner

    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. #WhenWeBake

  34. Cynthia R

    #WhenWeBake I used to bake a variety of traditional christmas cookies with my grandma, they were given as christmas gifts to family, friends, and neighbors.

  35. Ashley

    My mom and I have a tradition since I was 8 years old every year to bake a ton of baked goods and enter them in a local fair, and we still continue this tradition 16 years later! #WhenWeBake

  36. Annette

    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

  37. June Lisle

    I remember my mom making no bake cookies and I just couldn’t wait for them to be done.

  38. Leigh Anne Borders

    My #WhenWeBake memory is of my grandmother. I would go over to her house when my mom worked and she would take me in the kitchen and teach me things. I remember one time trying to learn to make homemade buscuits-not easy but oh so fun!

  39. ger

    I remember when my siblings and I would make French Toast and orange juice for my mom every Mother’s Day . We cut a rose off the rose bush, put it all on a tray and my mom had breakfast in bed. I miss her.
