A Tisket, A Tasket, A Kraft Goody Basket



Do you see all the goodies in this basket? Mmmm marshmallows! And marshmallows are fat-free, you know, so you can eat an entire bag a lot of them without feeling too guilty.

OK, for those of you who saw how I cook a turkey (SEE HERE), you know that I can use all the help I can get when it comes to holiday entertaining. Kraft to the rescue! They've relaunched their Facebook fan page, an interactive place to share recipes and tips with other folks. You can find exclusive Kraft recipes, holiday ideas, and even scheduled Facebook chats with the experts from the Kraft kitchens! You can find their Facebook page HERE.

Not a fan of Facebook? No problem. Kraft also has a YouTube channel! This is perfect for us visual learners who would rather see a video demonstration than just read a recipe. You can find their YouTube channel HERE.

Don't have time for that? Still no problem. You can just follow Kraft on Twitter for the latest recipes and ideas! You can find their Twitter page HERE.

Sooo, check them out and let me know what you're most interested in hearing about. Want more recipes? More how-to's on the YouTube channel? More coupons, easy dinner recipes, kid pleasing faves? What do you LIKE about the pages? What do you not like? Let me know in the comments section here. I'll choose 2 random winners from the comments on Wednesday, December 16 and they'll each receive a gift basket full of the following goodies...

* 4 delicious holiday recipes from the Kraft Foods Kitchens
* a Zak Designs garlic peeler
* an HA Mack olivewood mixing spoon
* NEW Velveeta Rotini and Cheese Whole Grain
* Planters cocktail peanuts
* Planters pecans
* Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate
* Stove Top,
* Honey Maid cinnamon crackers
* Jet Puffed marshmallows
* Oreos,
* Kraft salad dressing
* NEW Maxwell House Blend coffee
* NEW Ritz Brown Sugar Cinnamon crackers
* NEW Wheat Thins Flatbread crackers

Oh yeah! And don't forget to click HERE and send our your FREE holiday greeting ecards! For every greeting you send, Kraft will donate 10 meals to Feeding America!

*I did not receive any compensation or products for this post.

Jen@Scrapingirl said...

I love the youtube channel. I like to see how to do the recipes. Reading a cookbook isn't always easy for me. I am so cooking stupid that I don't understand what in the world they are telling me to do. So having someone show me is awesome! BTW I'd love to win the basket also!!!

LisaLisa said...

I would like to see more easy recipes for kids...something that I don't always have to be right there with them when there cooking..lol

I would love to win this Awesome basket.

Thx you!

Jodee said...

I'm all for more recipes and more coupons.

MariaA said...

Oh.... that basket looks like fun!!! ;)

Denise said...

Coupons are always my favorite!! I have been using them a lot more than ever!

Rebekah said...

I'm always looking for new recipes! I absolutely love to bake.

Chick Hatchers said...

I like recipes, but what I really like are coupons that make the product cheaper than the generic equivalent - and without getting bombarded with spam and newsletters and other stuff that takes up my time. Time is valuable and I don't like to waste it. Same with money. If I can get (close to) the same quality with generics, we have to do what is less expensive. KWIM?

Kristine said...

I always love more coupons. Kraft already has so many recipes, it's hard to imagine more!

Mynde said...

Who doesn't love Kraft's super easy recipes?

Caroline G said...

I love Kraft!! My kids love Kraft!! More recipes are what I like--especially kid friendly ones, preferably with few ingredients. :-)

Donna said...

i'm looking at the chocolate........and thinking what else could i bake with THAT!!!

April M said...

I would be thrilled to see Kraft provide more gluten free recipes. Some of their products are naturally gluten free and it would be great to find some easy recipes for those of us who can't eat gluten (wheat, barley and rye).

Michael & Amy said...

Kraft is awesome. It is a major staple in our home. More coupons are always a great thing!! I love the simple recipes that are easy to make and please lots of picky eaters.

Very fast & kid friendly is good around here. Missi

Michelle said...

I love watching videos to get technique, but I also need a good space to refer back to the ingredients as I'm usually not watching the video while cooking. I need the printed equivalent, too.

And really, who doesn't want more coupons? :)

Stephanie said...

I would love to see more healthy quick meals.

Stephanie@eyeballgirl.com

Vicki said...

Videos are good, recipes are great, but fast healthy dinners would be AWESOME!
Just my 2!

dhaynes said...

Grandkids can always use new recipes! Let me win let me win let me win!

Leah G said...

I want more recipes with 5 ingredients or less. I don't care if it sits in the oven for 5 hours as long as I don't have to spend 3 hours in prep!

Joy said...

Mmmm... marshmallows... my son would eat those up...

Rosemarie said...

More recipes would be great! Please enter me to win!

pmerry said...

Recipes that are easy to prepare. And quick. And cheap. LOL.

Lyndsay said...

Kraft recipes are always great and I like that the ingredients are always things I tend to have on hand. I'm always on the lookout for simple recipes my 4-year old will eat without a battle.

annemarie said...

Love more recipes - can't get enough especially the ones that are easy to do!

absterarnold said...

its so hard to come up with new and different, yet fun, recipes for my family!i'm always checking out the kraft website for new ideas!

Joann said...

I think better times for the chats with experts - 12 - 3 isn't a great time for everyone!

Bonnie M said...

more kid friendly, fast prep, healthy recipes...see I don't ask for much....oh yeah more coupons too.. :)

Janet said...

Recipes, coupons and free samples are some of my favorite things!

Lee said...

I checked out their twitter page and there was a delicious sounding recipe made with chicken, pasta and velveeta cheese and veggies. Yum! That's what I like, easy recipes that I can just throw together and cook. Thanks for the giveaway.

Anonymous said...

I guess I am old but I just prefer plain old e-mails. I can't remember to check all that other stuff and don't know how to use some of it. But I do love Kraft and all they offer for consumer education.

Angie Kerr said...

I love the Youtube channel. I like to see what my meal is 'supposed' to look like---LOL!!

The A Team Mom said...

I have loved receiving the magazine in the mail- I think it is a paid subscription now- The recipes are usually dummy proof which I totally need and they don't require a million ingredients or stuff you would not have on hand. Plus they are always tasty! I can not get enough easy dinner recipes- the kind that even kids will love!
Way to go Kraft!

Tammy said...

Coupons! Thanks!

Jenn said...

Coupons are a good thing!

Chawksgirl4ever said...

im sure videos are nice but i love printed recipes,the more recioes the begtter

CraftyTweetie said...

I am now a follower on Twitter and hope to someday soon have a FaceBook account. Since it's just me, Mom, and Ma (my grandmother), I would love to see more recipes with sercing sizes for just a few people instead of the usual 4-8 people. We don't mind left-overs, but not all meals are very tasty when warmed up. In addition, we're always looking for healthy, easy to prepare meals that don't sacrifice taste. Thanks for sharing the news about this contest.

Lindsay said...

I love getting new recipes, especially when they list nurtritional info and allergy info, etc. Low fat, low cal, sugar free, gluten free, vegetarian, are all great sub categories!

Kerri S said...

This is neat.

Margaret Dunlap said...

You forgot editor, clock, datebook, answering machine, automated teller, waitress, cook and laundry service. The goody basket looks good. mdunlap@hotmail.com

I'm a huge fan of the kraft site. It has become a staple for me for dinner time for new recipes that my family will all actually eat. I'd LOVE for there to be more recipes out there for me to check out!

Steff said...

This is an awesome basket! I would love this, and my girls love to cook/bake with me, so this would be a family win!

Betsy said...

We love to cook - fingers crossed that we win the basket!

Lorene said...

I love being able to find new recipes. They tend to be simple and my kids almost always eat them. Both a plus.

Lisa said...

I love Kraft products and who can't use coupons these days. Thanks for the tips.

Peggy said...

i am a fan on facebook and hope they will offer more coupons so us frugals can enjoy more of their products while pinching our pennies. Love their recipes

djw209 said...

I love getting emails with new recipes, and sometimes not so new recipes that serve as a reminder for foods I haven't made in a while. Always love recipes that come with pictures so I know what my end result should kinda look like.

AJSMOM13 said...

I would love recipes that my pasta hating 3 year old will eat. Casseroles just don't work in this house:)

Bobbi said...

I would like to see more kids recipes. I love Kraft and use their website all the time!!! The youtube site is awesome. I use it when I need help making a recipe. Comes in handy. Oh, I would LOVE to win a basket. My kids would go nuts for the marshmellows. :)
Thanks!!!

Tammy said...

I love Kraft's magazine and was sad when they stopped it but I still love Kraft recipes and would love this basket

Coupons are always a good thing as well, I have an organized coupon caddie when I go shopping!!!

Anonymous said...

I like that they have the video help, sometimes when you just aren't sure how to do something it's nice to see a visual. I also like the kid ones, my son has been learning to cook and this will be helpful. Thank you for the chance to win Dawn. Have a Merry Christmas and a Great New Year!

Sunshine said...

LOVE Kraft....And love baking.

Jennifer from Hurricane said...

I love recipes!! Collecting them with the intentions of making the item is what I do best. But what I've done lately is to make up binders with favorite and yummy recipes in sheet protectors and give as house warming gifts for newlyweds. (the basket would be a cool gift for the giver... hehe)

Carol from Iowa said...

I love Kraft! I would like more coupons and more recipes. It's always fun to try new things. Especially desserts! I would love to win this basket! Thanks, Dawn.

Laura said...

Recipes, especially ones that kids will love or can help with!

Sami A said...

I love their recipes and coupons! so great. I would love to see more kids-easy recipes...my boys love to be in the kitchen at my heels when i'm cooking, might as well give them something to do!

and what a great giveaway!

SLATES_KIDS_DIARY said...

I love the Kraft magazine and their website - they always have great recipes that don't require a lot of ingredients or expensive ingredients. :) Thanks!

Anonymous said...

I have to completely agree with the person who said more coupons to make it cheaper than the store brands and more recipes. I don't tweet and the facebook thing looked overloaded. Okay, I don't facebook either so maybe they all look like that. I like nice simple normal webpages that let you find what you are looking for.

Beth said...

I would love some new recipes. There are several items in that pictured basket that are already on my shopping list this week.

geelizzie said...

I would prefer it if they just fixed the food for me and sent it over to my house, but...I'm always looking for easy to fix recipes for adults with not so adult tastes. We are picky, no weird ingredients, just simple tasty meals for two.

Gayle B In NC said...

I love recipes....I do seem to collect them all in a recipe box that does nothing but collect dust though. As someone that has to make fudge every Christmas, I'd love this basket with the Jet Puffed Marshmallows and the Chocolate!

laura said...

Recipes and coupons, my two favorite words and Kraft has them both!!!

Nina said...

i want to know how to make healthier food kids will actually eat.

Ruth said...

I love Kraft and easy recipes! I also like the videos on YouTube to see exactly how to do everything! Thanks!

Karen G. said...

Mmmm marshmallows!

Carol said...

I absolutely love the YouTube videos. It's great seeing what something looks like as it's being made and when finished. More videos would be wonderful.

Beverly said...

I became a fan of their Facebook page. I like Kraft. They have quality products at fair prices. Of course I would love more coupons! The only thing I don't love about Kraft right now is that they began charging for their Food and Family mag, which is simply an advertisement. (It's a good one, too. I just pulled out a copy from a year ago to find a dip recipe I wanted to make for a potluck dinner -- made with Kraft foods.)

Regardless, I will remain a fan of Kraft (and of you, Dawn!).

More coupons would be wonderful as I try to stretch our food budget in tight economic times.

Yum! I could find plenty to make with all those goodies! Kraft also has a great magazine with all sorts of easy recipes using Kraft products

Anonymous said...

I love being able to watch recipes being made. I seem to retain it better if I see it being done rather than reading off of a recipe card. Kudos to Kraft for helping to make the lives of us Moms a lot easier!

More coupons, in this economy we need to be able to save all the money we can. And their products are so good we end up purchasing them even without the coupons.
