Unilever Spreads – Switch it Up in the Kitchen Giveaway #G2KHoliday

I was challenged to switch it up this holiday season with Unilever Spreads instead of using my normal butter or margarine options when baking some yummy treats. My son wanted to make some molasses cookies for his Christmas Party and the kids wanted chocolate chip cookies for snack at home, so we headed out to get I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter! from our local Walmart.

Unilever Spreads Holiday Challenge

The daughter had a great time using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! for her chocolate chip cookie baking the other night before Christmas arrived. It was easier to use than our sticks of margarine we have used previously and appeared more smooth than options we had tried in past with our baking attempts.

Making Molasses Cookies

Let’s see, so the next time we baked before Christmas was the molasses cookies for my six year old’s class party the day before school break. They came out so soft and delicious, whereas in past I have had a hard time getting cookies to be the right texture of softness while still being fully cooked.

Country Crock Recipe: Roasted Cauliflower

My kids and I were able to go on a veggie shopping trip adventure, well okay so I took my three year old with me but he had a blast and learned some interesting things about veggies while his brother and sister were at school. K received a little board with veggies on it and some white erase crayons on it then I was hanging onto questions such as ” Find a Vegetable that is good for your eyes. {hint it’s orange}” Now K didn’t know this question right away but he did realize what it was when I spoke about it being his brothers favorite snack for school … carrots!

K and I had such fun in the grocery store shopping around and picking up our Country Crock too for our home.

A recipe that may work great in your home because it worked great in mine:

Roasted Cauliflower


8 Cups cauliflower florets
3 Tbsp. Shedd’s Spread Country Crock Spread, Melted
1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
2 Cloves garlic, chopped
Pinch of ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange cauliflower, Shedd’s Spread Country Crock Spread, Lemon juice, garlic and pepper in a 13×9 inch baking dish; toss to coat.

Roast 45 minutes or until cauliflower is golden and tender. Sprinkle with cheese.

My family LOVES this recipe. I am already a cauliflower fan but my three and nine year old would never try it. Aj is my five year old son and he tries anything. We all loved this recipe sooo much! I think you should try it out!

I have to ask … what is your children’s favorite vegetable and how do you get them to eat their veggies or are they like my five year old and will try anything for you?

How do you make grocery shopping fun?

Disclosure: I received a veggie shopping kit and gift card to enjoy this special fun time with my kids in the grocery store. All opinions are that of my own.
