***CONGRATULATIONS, #11 Margie!!!***
Alyssa's wish to go to college...
Betty Crocker has launched a new program, Stirring Up Wishes, to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. You can help to grant wishes by giving in two easy ways:
Support the Make-A-Wish Foundation online while saving on your favorite Betty Crocker products through the Give $5, Get $5 promotion. Just visit StirringUpWishes.com from now through April 15th to donate $5 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help make children's wishes come true and get $5 worth of downloadable Betty Crocker coupons.
Look for specially marked packages of your favorite Betty Crocker products in stores. For each product purchased, Betty Crocker will donate 10¢ to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 and a maximum donation of $500,000. Betty Crocker has made a three-year, $250,000 annual commitment to the Make-A-Wish Foundation which, with your support, could be doubled in 2010 to $500,000!
When I was offered the opportunity to try a couple of Betty Crocker baking mixes, I said yes right away. I'm more of a baker than a cook, and always have been. Much to my chagrin, though, I find that boxed cake mix tends to come out with a better texture than my made-from-scratch cakes, no matter what recipe I use. And brownie mix is a pantry staple in our house! I usually bake cookies from scratch but I was really surprised at how quick and delicious the batch I made from a Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie mix was. Only one bowl and one cookie sheet, no mess!
Disclosure: I received a baking mix set like the one shown above courtesy of MyBlogSpark and Betty Crocker. They will also provide the giveaway package and have donated $25 on my behalf and will donate $25 on the winner's behalf to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
