Even with the best of intentions, sometimes, life just happens. Who doesn’t want to be Becky Home Ec-ky, the hostess with the mostest, when holidays and special events come up? The reality is that sometimes we have weeks where our kitchen sink backs up, tires go flat, children are sick, or that deadline at work gets moved up. We’re busy spinning all the plates that busy wives and moms get used to, and it becomes difficult to figure out how to fit in one more thing. I love baking from scratch and it’s fun to watch my kids and grandkids get excited as the yummy treats come out of the oven! The reality for me, this week, is that I’m not going to have as much “free-to-be-me-time” in the kitchen as I would like.
The good news? That doesn’t mean I can’t bake, and share, some delicious treats that will leave the youngsters (and the oldsters) at my house oohing and aahing and feeling pretty special, for Valentine’s Day. Pillsbury has a super fun line of Ready-to-Bake Cookies that give me fresh, delicious treats, right from my own oven, in just minutes. Their Valentine varieties have Disney characters inside a heart, centered in a round sugar cookie. Your kids can choose from Mickey and Minnie Mouse or the Disney Princesses, Belle, Cinderella and Tiana. The cookies come 24 to a package, so you have plenty to satisfy all the Valentine “sweet tooths” on your list. Grab a package or two in the refrigerated case at your local grocery store, next to the other Pillsbury dough products.
It would only take a couple more seconds to turn those yummy cookies into over-the-top ice cream sandwiches or cookie pops and still net me that Becky Home Ec-ky award, too! So, I’m off to the store to grab a couple packages; and I’m going to enjoy some fantastic savings using this high-value coupon, which I’m allowed to share with you! You can print a coupon for $1.10 off 1 package of Pillsbury Ready to Bakes PLUS you can also enter the giveaway, below, to win a fun Pillsbury Ready to Bake Gift Pack!
