Country Crock Review/Giveaway CLOSED

Butter is such a huge factor in our home when cooking and I am sure it is in most people's home. I mean you add it to flavor food while it is cooking, recipes for baking, and even add it for the taste right before eating. Having the chance to review Country Crock I knew it was going to be so easy given the fact that I love it so much, but at the same time learn some information about it that I may not really know. Plus, Country Crock has launched an initiative called “Spread the Love of Vegetables” which as a parent myself, I know my kids don't eat their daily serving of vegetables like they should. (as seen in a USA Today article on April 13, “Only 14% of parents say their kids eat at least five vegetables a day.”)


Country Crock products include: Original, Light, Churn Style, Calcium plus Vitamin D, Honey Spread, Cinnamon Spread, Spreadable Butter, Spreadable Sticks, and Squeeze. Which I know I have tried several of these but I didn't even realize they made a cinnamon flavor which I am going to have to get. I am just not sure if it in my area, but I will find out the next time I go too the store. Country Crock spread also has 70% less saturated fat than butter and 30% fewer calories. Also there are NO hydrogenated oil and 0g Trans Fat. Which is great when you are trying to eat healthy.

With Country Crock has launched "Spread the Love of Vegetables" I knew it would only be fitting to try to a recipe that they offer on their website, which they offer such a huge selection of recipes depending on what meal you want and ingredients.
Sauteed Basil & Garlic Vegetables
Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 15 Minute(s)
Cook Time: 10 Minute(s)

Ingredients
- 2 Tbsp. Shedd's Spread Country Crock® Spread
- 1 lb. your favorite vegetables (red onions, zucchini, asparagus, bell peppers), coarsely chopped
- 1/2 lb. green beans, trimmed
- 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped (optional)
- 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Directions: Heat Shedd's Spread Country Crock® Spread in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook vegetables and green beans, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp. Combine basil with garlic in small bowl, then evenly sprinkle over vegetables. Cook 1 minute.


I am so happy I choose to go with this recipe being a lover of butter, garlic, and basil I knew this was going to make the vegetables a much bigger hit for me and my kids. Plus, this recipe would make such a great item to take on a cookout. It was super easy to prepare, make and of course the most important thing eat. It is funny how butter can be used in so many recipes and elevates the taste to the next level and you don't feel bad eating it either with it being on the healthier side of food.  


Country Crock on Facebook has a sweepstakes that they are doing to underscore the importance of eating veggies and giving us all a chance to win big!  Starting 5/16, when you go to the Country Crock Facebook page to check it out and visit the “Love Your Veggies” tab, to submit a photo of your family enjoying veggies for the chance to win $100 worth of groceries!
