Land O’Lakes Kitchen Conversations Giveaway {closed}

KitchenConversations_260x150

Last week I had the opportunity to sit in on a fun webinar hosted by Land O’Lakes® and Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman.  Maybe you’ve heard of her?

Anyhow, the talk centered around butter…yesssah…and also some new fun food trends for 2013.

Along with Ree, some really cool girls were on the panel too…Julie from The Little Kitchen, Maria from Two Peas and Their Pod, Sommer from a Spicy Perspective and Brenda from A Farmgirls Dabbles.

 

At the center of the conversation, however, were these new Land O’Lakes® Butter Half Sticks.  These things are so great…I mean, who doesn’t have extra tablespoons of butter, wrapped in the paper wrap hanging out in your fridge right now?    Anyhow, these half sticks are perfect for all y’all who don’t use butter by the pound on a daily basis, and since you don’t have to cut the sticks in half, something I do all the time, it helps keep yo’ butter fresh to death.

 

During the webinar, Maria chose the food trend, “Popcorn”, which I jumped all over and made these Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Popcorn Bars.  I mean, me and popcorn are kinda BFF.

I love the idea of half sticks- I’m currently living in the UK (But I have a US shipping address if I were to be so lucky!) and our butter comes in a block that’s the size of two sticks! I find that if I don’t use it fast enough it loses quality really quickly. Not always a problem, but enough to be a bother!

I have used 1/2 sticks for a while now and really love them!! Keeps me from having all those pieces of sticks in the butter keeper! lol. Land o’Lakes is what I grew up with and I stay loyal to them. Never have to worry how something is going to taste when I stick with them!! Love the site!

Maybe if I had half sticks, I’d cut down on my butter consumption (although that’s pretty unlikely!)

The Land O Lakes half sticks are great! Especially for saving them in the fridge, they don’t stay as long and accumulate the smells of the fridge. Love it!

This would be such a great help in baking. A lot of what I make calls for 1/2 a stick and then I have opened a stick and it is just waiting until I make something else.
What a great idea and from Land O Lakes.

The half sticks sound perfect. I would love to have some in the half. I never like having to cut a stick in half and then have to find a way to keep the other half fresh. These would be great for vacation time too when we don’t need a whole supply of Costco butter. We vacation often when we still need to cook and make meals. What a great gift your giving away. I am here all the time, I just love your recipes. What I need to know is who eats all this fine items?

Half sticks seem like a genius idea since so many recipes just use half or even one and a half!

I guess I usually just cut the stick of butter in half and either drop the remaining half on our butter dish or keep it in the fridge and use it shortly thereafter but obviously the half sticks would help me by speaking to my inner OCD and not messing with the uniformity of my perfect butter stick in the butter dish! That’s confusing, I know, but it all makes perfect sense up in my knoggin. :)

Love the half stick idea almost as much as I love your popcorn bars!

I think the half sticks are a good idea! I usually only use small pieces of stick butter at a time and then the rest is left to get gross in the fridge. These smaller sticks may help me with that problem.

I think the half butter sticks are just adorable! I don’t mind cutting my butter into pieces when needed, but this would help for those recipes that don’t call for a full stick.

The half sticks are great! I hate those little half-used butter knobs that I have to clumsily re-wrap in paper and stick in the fridge. Seriously!

I love half-sticks. Having more size options allows me to use only what I need more often so I don’t have forgotten half-used sticks hiding in the fridge door.

This would be great for baking but more so for my butter dish. It’s so cute but a full stick barely fits on it.

I do have partial sticks of butter in the fridge some months of the year. These half sticks might work then,but at Christmas time I use up most of the butter I open. I would not need this size then.

I’ve been using the half sticks for a while in both regular and olive oil and sea salt varieties. I like not having to measure the butter and having to securely wrap the half stick that’s left behind.

Half sticks would definitely help me! There are few things more gross than the crusty butter that you get from leaving it unsealed.

I love the half sticks, especially the sea salt and oil ones, they’re super yummy!! Unfortunately, I’ve decided to go dairy free, which is making me sad on so many levels!!! However, I still cook for friends and loved ones butter and milk-full dishes. It’s just resisting the temptation to try them for “quality control” that’s the hardest!

We use a lot of butter, so not sure they would be of any use to me, but I would try them.

I don’t think they would necessarily help *me,* because I understand that wrapping a stick of butter up after taking a slice out of it is important. My husband, on the other hand, leaves the dang wrapper wide open after using it so it can absorb all the yuck flavors from the fridge. I love that man, regardless of his butter shortcomings.

I’ve been using those half sticks for a little while and they’re great. I live alone, so it’s nice to only open a little butter at a time!
