Celebrate Your Family's Traditions with Libby's Fruits and Vegetables {Rubbermaid Storage Set, Bamboo Cutting Boards & Libby's Prize Pack Giveaway!}

Libby's logo
I recently had the chance to share one of my favorite holiday traditions, showing off the cute framed ornaments that I make year after year using pictures of my girls.

I just love seeing their smiling faces from infancy hanging on display!

Christmas photo ornaments

While it was fun for me to be proud of my own crafty way to celebrate the holiday season, I also loved being able to read all of the wonderful traditions that many of you wrote in and added. From particular songs to driving around to see lights to delivering baskets to those in need, there were such a wide variety included that I couldn't help but smile as I read each one.

However, the most common tie between the traditions involved one aspect that is near and dear to all of us: eating.

Baking cookies, decorating cookies, eating and relaxing afterward, having a big Christmas dinner... they were all named — many more than once. There is just something about celebrating traditions and family gatherings by coming around the table that can't be compared... and the holidays are the perfect time to do that.

This year, Libby’s Fruits and Vegetables has a whole list of delicious, CANvenient recipes that are fast and easy to ensure that your family can be enjoying food, stories and smiles in no time!

Libby's fruits and vegetables

As one of the nation's largest brands, Libby's Fruits and Vegetables contains over 60 different products and sizes. From household staples such as corn, peas and green beans, they offer one of the industry's most complete lines of canned vegetables, including organic options.

At the same time, their fruit products only meet the highest standards and are created from produce hand selected at the peak of ripeness and nutrient content from the finest orchards.

Considering that we're always looking for new and tasty ways to incorporate fruits and vegetables into our meals, I was ready to put a fun package of Libby's products and kitchen gear to use for my family to enjoy.

Libby's prize pack

Along with all of the recipes on their website, Libby's also suggested their Maple Glazed Turkey with Sesame Ginger Green Beans & Carrots as inspiration for a holiday dinner main course and their  Peachy Corn Muffin Bites as the perfect addition for holiday morning breakfast with the family.

I'm a big fan of corn muffins and a big fan of peaches, so I definitely had to try these bite-size bits of deliciousness!

corn muffins

Peachy Corn Muffin Bites

1 c all-purpose flour
1 c cornmeal
¼ c sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
½ c skim milk
½ c plain nonfat Greek yogurt
¼ c canola oil
1 egg
1 can (15 ounce) can Libby's Peach Slices, drained and finely chopped
½ can (15 ounce) can Libby's Naturals Whole Kernel Corn, drained

Preheat oven to 400° F.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, yogurt, oil and egg. Pour wet batter into dry, mixing until the dry ingredients are just moist (do not over mix). Mix in peaches and half a can of corn until just incorporated into the batter – again, avoid over mixing.

Coat mini muffin tins with cooking spray. Scoop 2 tablespoon spoonfuls into each muffin cup. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool on wire rack for 10 minutes, remove from tins and cool completely.

Yum, yum and yum!

I love that these came out having the traditional taste and texture of cornbread, yet the addition of the peaches gives them just that extra tiny bit of moisture and sweetness. Not to mention that the fact that they're bite-size just makes them so easy to pop right in your mouth!
