Remember when we recently cooked with Foods from Chile?
Ready for another round? But this time, our ingredients are not from Chile.
Way closer! Like, at your local Wal-Mart!
We’re cooking with Country Crock and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.
When it comes to these ingredients, I’m admittedly in a rut.
I use Country Crock for spreading on toast and English muffins and the like. It has 70% less saturated fat than butter and 30% fewer calories than butter, and, quite frankly, I like it most because it’s spreadable. Nothing worse than tearing my piece of toast to pieces with cold, unspreadable butter.
And I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter? I use it to spritz onto steamed vegetables. Unlike its counterparts, it has no cholesterol or hydrogenated oils, so there’s 0g trans fat per serving. It’s also made with a blend of oils rich in Omega-3 ALA. And it takes my steamed broccoli up a notch in terms of flavors. And less guilt.
But that’s where my creativity ends with these two products.
Which means I need your help.
Do you use these ingredients in recipes? And if so, which ones? Care to share? I need inspiration from you! I just might use YOUR favorite recipe in an upcoming post. This is #1 of a three part series, and the second post (sometime between now and June 14th), will include a giveaway for a $50 gift card to Wal-Mart (your recipe doesn’t have to be chosen to win). And who can’t find something they need at Wal-Mart?

And just because I still haven’t gotten my book review post in yet (deadlines! ack!), there will be a Saturday post, so look for it tomorrow.
