There is something incredibly sentimental about getting in the kitchen and baking up a favorite dish. But when Mom and children get together in the kitchen, magic happens and memories are made.

Food becomes even more important and memorable around holidays, even Mother’s Day. That’s why in preparation for Mother’s Day, The Daily Meal and Country Crock whipped up some fresh ideas with contributing pastry chef (and Mom) Jenny McCoy to make the kitchen a place of discovery, a place of learning, and a place to cement new and lasting memories together. Regardless of what’s being baked, it is the memories that last and mean the most. When Mom gets in the kitchen with her kids, she has moments to form bonds, make memories and teach skills they’ll use forever.

So this Mother’s Day, get into the kitchen together, as a family. Try out some corn muffins with a deliciously sweet honey walnut spread. The kids can whisk together the muffins in just a few easy steps. Or perhaps try non-yeasted cinnamon rolls, watching the vanilla cream cheese glaze drip into each and every crevice.

Corn Muffins with Honey Walnut Spread


1 cup all-purpose flour

¾ cup cornmeal

⅓ cup sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1 egg

⅔ cup milk

6 Tbsp. Country Crock® Spread

Honey Walnut Spread Ingredients:

8 Tbsp. Country Crock® Spread

½ cup chopped walnuts

¼ to ½ cup honey

To make the corn muffins, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a muffin tin with paper liners. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar and baking powder. In another bowl, beat together milk, egg and Country Crock® spread until well combined. Pour the wet mixture into the center of the dry mixture. Stir until just combined. Divide the batter between the muffin tin and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until cooked through.

While they cook, prepare the spread by combining Country Crock® Spread, walnuts and honey until well mixed. Adjust the amount of honey to your liking.

Serve muffins with a generous smear of honey walnut spread.

No-Yeast Cinnamon Rolls with Vanilla Cream Cheese Topping


¾ cup packed brown sugar

½ cup granulated sugar

1 Tablespoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

2 Tablespoons Country Crock®, melted


2½ cups all purpose flour, plus more for rolling out dough

¼ cup granulated sugar

1½ teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup buttermilk

5 Tablespoons Country Crock®, melted and divided

For topping:

4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup Country Crock®

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 425. Combine filling ingredients in a small bowl, then mix with a fork until well blended. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk together the buttermilk and 4 Tbsp. melted Country Crock® in another bowl, then pour it into the middle of the dry ingredients. Stir until the dough just comes together. Be sure not to over mix. Knead with your hands until the dough forms a ball then cut it in half. Lightly flour a surface then roll each half into a rectangle. Press half the filling into the center then roll the dough like a sausage. Pinch the seam together, trims the ends and cut into slices about ½ inch thick. Repeat with the other dough half, then place in a non-stick sprayed pan. Brush with remaining Country Crock® and bake for 15 minutes until tops are golden brown. To make the topping, combine powdered sugar, cream cheese, Country Crock® and vanilla until smooth. add in a splash of cream if necessary to thin. Pour cream cheese topping over top of cinnamon rolls. Serve warm.

Classic Pancakes with Caramelized Apple Topping

2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 cup milk

1 egg

2 Tbsp. Country Crock® buttery spread

For apples:

2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced

1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1/3 cup sugar

1 Tbsp. Country Crock® buttery spread

Combine flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. In another bowl, combine milk, egg and Country Crock® until well mixed. Heat a griddle over medium high. Melt 1 Tbsp. of Country Crock® on the griddle. Once melted, spoon the pancake batter in 1/3 cup scoops onto the griddle. Cook until the batter begins to bubble, then flip. Cook until golden on the other side. Remove to a plate.

To prepare apples, toss together apples and juice. stir together water and sugar in a skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook another give minutes until the mixture caramelized. Remove from a pan and stir in butter. Toss the apples into the pan and return to medium heat. Cook until the caramel has completely coated the apples, about 2 minutes. Spoon warm apple mixture on top of the pancakes.

2017 Mother’s Day Social Media Content


Unarguably, BarkBox wins Mother’s Day on social media. The brand had an ingenious take on Mother’s Day and created a rap song called ‘Dog Mom Anthem’, honoring all the women taking care of their dogs!

At Country Crock ® Plant Butter, we are passionate about plant-based eating and being kind to animals.

So, along with Country Crock ® Plant Butter brand fan Antoni Porowski, we visited vegan icon and cupcake-lover Esther the Wonder Pig at her home, the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary. We baked Esther&rsquos favorite vegan cupcake recipe made with Country Crock ® Plant Butter and learned about the connection between eating plant-based and kindness to animals. In October 2020, we partnered with Cute as a Cupcake bakery in celebration of World Animal Day to make a limited-edition Vegan Vanilla Cutie Esther the Wonder Pig cupcake in a jar that directly benefitted animal sanctuaries, including Esther&rsquos home, the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary, The Gentle Barn, and Woodstock Sanctuary.

Lemon Coconut Cookies

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than whipping up a batch of these bright and cheery lemon coconut cookies. All you need is this one easy recipe!

The weather here in Utah has been cold and rainy this past week, which means we’ve been spending a lot of time indoors. My little ones have been champs, but keeping everyone entertained has been tough.

Our oldest loves to bake with me, he’s been doing it since he was teeny tiny, so I thought we’d hop in the kitchen and bake together- it was just what we needed!

The Country Crock® Make It Yours TM Cookie Recipe is so easy to make! You start off with the perfect base, from there, you can get creative and add in whatever mix-in’s inspire you! We had a bunch of extra lemons on our counter along with some coconut and white chocolate chips that needed to be used up. They were the perfect mix-in’s to brighten up our rainy day.

To start, we grabbed a tub of Country Crock®. It’s the perfect buttery spread for baking (made with real, simple ingredients, including delicious oils, purified water, and a pinch of salt). Using a hand mixer we mixed it along with the granulated sugar, light brown sugar, egg, egg yolk, vanilla extract and lemon extract. Then, we mixed in the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda until a soft dough formed. Finally, we folded in the mix-ins (lemon zest, coconut and white chocolate chips), scooped up the dough, placed it on the prepared sheets, and baked the cookies until they were golden brown.

They were delicious!! Our family had such a fun time baking & eating them!

You can make Mother’s Day extra special this year too! With a little baking inspiration from Country Crock®, enlist your little one(s) to be your kitchen helpers and create something delicious with the Make It Yours TM cookie recipe. Because time spent in the kitchen is more than just about making cookies, it’s about the time we get as a family and the values we can share – such as imagination, creativity, togetherness. I absolutely loved these sweet and tangy lemon coconut cookies. I hope that the mom(s) in your life will too!

Make sure to follow Country Crock on Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram and tag your pictures with #MakeItYours – we’d love to see what you create with your family!!


With the help of a friendly grocery store, Country Crock was able to share with unsuspecting families the good that happens, when we bake. All that was needed were a few colored pencils, the modern magic of a 3D printer, and the reminder that watching a child’s imagination come to life is one of the special joys of baking together.

Instant Pot Sunday Sauce

Your Sundays are now free! No more standing over the stove babysitting Sunday supper. This sauce is fully loaded with pork, beef, sausage and meatballs, and is sure to become a family tradition that won't leave you short on time to relax and enjoy Sunday Funday.

Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Fork-tender and juicy, this hefty chuck roast is best blanketed with a rich gravy made from the beef's herb-scented pan drippings.

Lemon and Garlic Roast Chicken

Ina dresses up her classic roast chicken by baking it with bacon on top. Then she adds a head of garlic and a sliced lemon to the roasting pan to flavor the sauce.

Ginger-Glazed Salmon

Make sure you set some of Molly&rsquos ginger marinade aside &ndash she uses it to baste the salmon as it cooks in the skillet.

Cast-Iron Skillet Provencal Pork Chops and Potatoes

Everything in this elegant-yet-easy dish cooks in one skillet, cutting down on the cleanup. Holding the potatoes in water after cutting prevents them from discoloring while you prep the other ingredients.

Chicken Tetrazzini

Hearty and comforting, Giada's tried-and-true casserole boasts a five-star rating and nearly 1,200 user reviews. She guarantees layer upon layer of flavor by making a garlic-laced mushroom-onion sauce, plus a buttery cream sauce, both of which she mixes with tender shredded chicken and pasta. For welcome texture, Giada blankets the casserole with a cheese-and-breadcrumb mixture, which turns golden brown in the oven.

Fried Chicken with Black Pepper Gravy

Trisha&rsquos mom calls this recipe &ldquocompany chicken,&rdquo because it&rsquos perfect for serving to a crowd. She prefers to use chicken thighs because they&rsquore more flavorful than white meat.

Chicken Cacciatore

Buttery egg noodles are topped with juicy browned chicken thighs and a medley of sauteed vegetables in Ree's classic chicken cacciatore recipe.

Tricolore Stuffed Pork

The colors of the Italian flag &mdash red, white and green &mdash are well-represented in Giada's juicy pork loin. The boneless meat is wrapped around layers of creamy provolone, sweet roasted red peppers and vibrant spinach to create impressive results.

Peppercorn Roasted Beef Tenderloin

A garlicky butter sauce adds an extra-special touch to Ree&rsquos five-star beef tenderloin.

Chicken Stew with Biscuits

A special meal doesn't have to be fancy. In fact, serving something like Ina's comforting chicken stew with biscuits &mdash a sort of fuss-free, big-batch chicken pot pie &mdash is what Sunday dinner is all about: providing sustenance and comfort for the people you love.

The Best Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala is thought to have been created by a Bangladeshi chef in Glasgow in the 1960s. It's a spicy, tomato-based dish seasoned with garlic, ginger, fenugreek and garam masala. In this recipe we used fenugreek leaves for their nutty and slightly minty flavor. If you can't find them, substitute dried mint leaves and a pinch of ground fenugreek. Garam masala is a popular Indian spice blend that usually includes black and white pepper, cloves, cinnamon, mace, cardamom, bay, cumin and coriander. It's pretty easy to find in your local grocery store and most national spice companies.

Roast Pork Loin with Applesauce

Pork and applesauce are always a winning combination, especially when they taste this good. The pork is seasoned with warming spices, like sage and thyme, and roasted until tender. It pairs excellently with a homemade applesauce, which is sure to impress both kids and adults.

Rhubarb Short Ribs

Though traditionally used in sweet recipes, rhubarb steals the show with Molly&rsquos savory short ribs. You&rsquoll need a few hours for the spice rub to work its magic, so prepare the ribs on Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Individual Meat Loaves

Ina varies the texture and flavor of her meatloaf by using a combination of ground beef, pork and veal.

Vegetarian Lasagna

You will never miss the meat in this vegetarian lasagna, with its hearty sauce of tomatoes, onions and carrots layered with spinach and creamy ricotta cheese. It's a comfort classic your family will love.

Valerie's Very Best Gumbo

Valerie loads up her gumbo with sausage, chicken and okra, then serves the dish with rice, scallions and a dash of hot sauce.

Roasted Shrimp and Orzo

The best part about Ina&rsquos easy shrimp salad? It gets better the longer it sits, so feel free to prepare in advance.

Sunday Rib Roast

Ina's Mustard Horseradish Sauce accompanies her crowd-pleasing rib roast. For a dramatic presentation, carve the roast right at the dinner table.

Vegetarian Enchiladas

These easy-to-make enchiladas are filled with beans, spinach and cheese. Serve them with rice on the side.

Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

This recipe is for the ultimate garlic lover. Chicken thighs are braised until tender in a rich, roasted garlic sauce, then topped with fried garlic chips. There's even enough roasted garlic paste to whip up a loaf of garlic bread while the chicken cooks.

Slow-Cooker Sunday Gravy

This sauce showcases tomatoes three ways: sun-dried tomatoes add sweetness and body, toasted tomato paste adds intense flavor, while crushed tomatoes melt down into this hearty sauce.

Salmon & Melting Cherry Tomatoes

Ina whips up a simple yet delicious cherry tomato sauce for her seared salmon.

Slow-Cooker Sunday Stew

Cozy up to a big bowl of Ree&rsquos Sunday stew. A savory beer broth and buttery lemon noodles turn the dish into a comfort food favorite that&rsquos sure to please a crowd.

Marinated Lamb Chops

Reserve a bit of the marinade before coating the lamb chops &mdash it makes a great dipping sauce!

Sausage-Spinach Stuffed Shells

With three cheeses, sausage and spinach, this hearty dish offers something for everyone.

Steak Out, Italian Style

Rachael puts an Italian spin on the classic meat and potatoes with this hearty steak dinner.

Brick Oven-Style Chicken

Giada prepares this Italian-style chicken dish for a fun and festive family dinner.

Porcupine Meatballs

Beef, raw rice, onion and Italian seasoning come together in this simple dinner of porcupine meatballs. Where'd the name come from? While the meatballs bake, the grains of rice pop out and look incredibly similar to porcupine quills. Simmer the meatballs in a quick homemade tomato sauce for a delicious, family-friendly dish.

Oxtail Stew

This oxtail stew is inspired by the Jamaican version, with tender oxtails and butter beans seasoned with spicy habaneros, ginger and allspice. Time is the key to the comforting brown gravy, which simmers for several hours, intensifying in flavor and rich color. We love it even more the next day, once the beans have had time to break down and the oxtails melt into the gravy even more . Serve with a few dashes of hot sauce for added heat and acidity

#WhenWeBake Country Crock Sponsored #Giveaway ENDED

I have been using Country Crock Buttery Spreads in our home for as long as I can remember. I use their Buttery Spreads for all my cooking & baking for everything from deserts to our favorite casseroles. Be sure to check out their site, they offer great recipes which even include nutritional information along with approximate prep and cook times. If you are interested in multiple recipes, Country Crock also has a newsletter called the Crock Country Chronicle that you could sign up for by scrolling to the bottom right hand corner of their home page and clicking on “Sign Up” under the “Recipes delivered to your INBOX” image.

Country Crock is now spreading the news of their “So Much Good Happens When We Bake” campaign in order to promote family togetherness in the kitchen or grilling area and around the dinner table. I am totally on board with Country Crock’s way of thinking. This past weekend, our family grilled out on the patio twice. First we made breakfast and the boys helped with everything, from getting the food ready for the grill, to snatching a few pieces of bacon as they were dabbing the grease off it as it was removed from the grill. Since it was nice enough to eat outside, we had a wonderful breakfast right on our backyard patio table. Since everyone had so much fun, we planned another meal on the grill. We grilled steak, chicken, vegetables & macaroni and cheese on the side burner of our grill. Again, it was another great family fun-filled experience. Everyone helped prepare the meal, set the table, enjoyed the food and even helped clean up the mess! Since we had such a great family experience, I am going to make sure to cook at the house and use the grill more often. We just need to hope for great weather so we can eat outside on our patio again.

With the help of a friendly grocery store, Country Crock was able to share with unsuspecting families the good that happens, when we bake. All that was needed were a few colored pencils, the modern magic of a 3D printer, and the reminder that watching a child’s imagination come to life is one of the special joys of baking together. Don’t miss the original film in the #WhenWeBake series at

Country Crock offered a great family opportunity which was held in the NYC Tri-State area as a surprise for moms before for Mother’s Day. Country Crock made it possible for kids to create their own cookie cutters through the use of a 3-D Printer and kid inspired drawings. These cookie cutters were created on site, right at the store. Making cookies is so much fun, but would be an even greater experience if you were able to use a personalized cutter designed by your child. Take a look at the image below and you can see the personalized cookie cutter that I was given through the #WhenWeBake campaign. We already have a dog bone cookie cutter so the kids thought we needed a dog cookie cutter to go along with it. We have a peanut butter dog treat recipe that the kids can’t wait to make with our new dog cookie cutter.

Be sure and check out the #WhenWeBake campaign. You can also stay updated with Country Crock by following them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
