A couple of weeks ago I was gasping over and protesting the amount of butter in a specific cookie recipe to the point that I refused to make the cookies at all. I know! But the next morning, when breakfast was over, I realized we had gone through the same amount of butter on our toast. And no, I am not going to tell you the specific amount. It’s really embarrassing. I love butter; it’s natural, and so it simply cannot be something we should never eat (in my very expert opinion). But that doesn’t mean that we are eating it in acceptable quantities. And so, that very day, I decided to start exploring other alternatives (without my husband’s knowledge, of course).
Needless to say, it felt a little like fate when I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter offered me a fantastic prize package (one to keep and one to give) and asked me to try their product. I said, “Ummm, yeah, I think I could find time in my busy schedule to do that for you.” Or maybe I said, “YEA!!! I love free stuff!!” It was definitely one of the two.
At any rate, I’ve reintroduced myself to the brand I thought was made exclusively for grandparents, and it’s truly (I’m not exaggerating) going to change the way I grill and bake! From now on, Lord, I promise. And I’m not going to pretend like I want to eat it with a spoon*, but it is a very, very acceptable alternative that also happens to be Cholesterol free. Way to go, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Congratulations on a job well done!
*Not that I want to do that with butter. Ahem.
Be on the look out for an energy bar/cookie recipe featuring this product sometime in the next few days. But for now, I know now that I’ve mentioned it, you’re really just reading this post to get to the part about the freebies. It’s OK, I do that too.
Incredibly generously, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter is offering:
Gasp. That’s a lot of stuff!
