Not to mention that seeing our calendar fill up with social outings such as cookouts, picnics and potlucks always manages to put a smile on my face. What's better than relaxing with friends and family while enjoying some warmth and sunshine?
For me, I am always happy to contribute a dish that is tasty, yet extremely simple. Who wants to spend any more extra time in the kitchen than necessary?
Fortunately for me, I never fail to be impressed with the ease, convenience and taste of the nearly limitless number of delicious options available from Krusteaz!
Delighting families for generations, Krusteaz began back in 1932 with an easy-to-make pie crust and has since expanded to include pancakes, biscuits, muffins, brownies, breads, desserts and much more.
Whether you reach for one of their classic favorites or one of the new additions to their product line, you can be confident that they have included only the finest and freshest ingredients and that the result will be a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
Even better, I adore the way that Krusteaz baking mixes can be used as-is or can be incorporated into any number of great recipes for even more easy and delicious options.
For instance, use Krusteaz's premium Blueberry Belgian Waffle Mix right out of the box for light and crispy waffles that the whole family will enjoy...
...or, with the addition of only a few more ingredients, you can change them into drool-worthy Lemon Cream Blueberry Waffles!
Not a waffle fan? Then maybe you'd like to take Krusteaz's Fat Free Banana Muffin Mix and turn it from traditional tasty muffins...
...into a perfect-for-summer, refreshingly sweet Strawberry Banana Cake!
We have long been big fans of utilizing Krusteaz mixes in just about any form and recipe — proven once again by our first taste of their amazing Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookie Mix.
While I was all set to add some cocoa powder to turn these cookies into Double Trouble Chocolate Cookies...
...I instead opted to follow the directions on the box to make these chewy, chocolatey, bakery-fresh delectable cookies how they are meant to be. You just can't beat the luscious goodness of a chocolate chunk cookie and these definitely hit the spot (but with far less effort, time and work than making them from scratch)!
With everything from classic cookies to Pumpkin Spice Muffin Mix, there's a Krusteaz mix for everything. Whether you're like me and follow the recipe or you're more of a creative baker — it's very easy to take any Krusteaz mix and whip up your own creation — the end result is something that will always wow family and friends.
