Happy Holiday Baking!

Heather —  December 19, 2010

GIVEAWAY CLOSED. It is the Season for baking and cookie making and treating!! I hope you are having fun as you plan and prepare all your Holiday treats. I, personally, really enjoy trying out new recipes and surprising my family with unexpected treats. The cake above was our Absolutely fabulous Thanksgiving Red Velvet and Cream Cheese Cake…and it was even more special because I did not make it!  My son’s girlfriend brought this for us and it was an unexpected and delicious dessert. (Thank you again, A!)

I think it is wonderful that she is such a good baker–at such a young age. I was very impressed. Anyway, what brought this up was that Blogspark sent me a Bake Your Holidays Merry gift pack, along with info about a new baking site with some great ideas for figuring out your favorite traditions for baking…and sharing!  I am enjoying their ideas–especially the little coconut snowmen!

So, here’s the details:

At our house, we have been experimenting with going gluten free.  Our four year old has many allergies and also appears to be sensitive to sugar and gluten. I know going gluten free is something that will help her and probably all the rest of the family…but it is difficult to change my shopping and cooking habits! Do you find it difficult to find easy, fun, gluten free snacks for your kids?

Finding a Betty Crocker “Simple Joys” prize pack on the step yesterday was a great surprise for my little one. She was thrilled to open the box with 2 packages of Betty Crocker Fruit-Flavored Snacks, a retro Pick `em Up Sticks game, a light-up yo-yo and a classic Frisbee.

It is amazing how much kids like those fruit roll-ups & snacks! Her brothers came in and tried to confiscate the pick-up sticks, yo-yo and a pack of snacks, and Em shared but didn’t give them away. My kids agreed the snacks tasted great and were fun…of course we got bug ones…how did they know Emma has three brothers:)

Gluten_Free_Fruit_Snacks_Prize_PackThis was also fun for me. I was happy to not have to say no to a treat and the little toys are cute! I think it is so helpful that Betty Crocker is offering the gluten free snacks. The snacks are simple, made with fruit, less than 100 calories and taste…well, just like fruit roll-ups and fruit snacks!

I have one additional Betty Crocker “Simple Joys” prize pack to give away to my readers! The pack includes 2 packages of the Betty Crocker Fruit-Flavored Snacks, a retro Pick `em Up Sticks game, a light-up yo-yo and a classic Frisbee.

Please tell me one of your “Simple Joys” for the kids in a comment for a chance to win the prize pack!
