I’ve got something to give you today.

A huge basket filled with all sorts of Smucker’s jams, jellies, fruit spreads, cute spreaders and a recipe book to save all your families recipes.

Smucker’s is running a recipe contest and the finalists have just been announced on their site.  You should check them out, they all sound delicious!

Cherished family traditions often begin in the kitchen, and the makers of Smucker’s® jams, jellies, preserves, fruit spreads and fruit butters know a thing or two about bringing families together through wonderful meals.


In honor of the contest the people at Smucker’s would like to give you one of these gorgeous baskets filled with loads of goodies.

Besides the delicious jams, jellies and preserves you will get this adorable cloth-bound recipe book to save your family’s favorite recipes.

The pages of the book are thick and gorgeous and ready to be filled with memories.

The basket is valued at $50 and includes:

  •  A variety of Smucker’s fruit spreads
  • Cloth-bound Recipe book
  • Gingham-patterned set of spreaders

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

    My favorite family tradition was making Christmas cookies with my grandma, great- grandma and mother. The past 2 years my 3 year old daughter and I have been the ones in the kitchen preparing all of our family Christmas cookies.

    We do a ‘toddler tuesday’ every week. Basically, I let my two year old pick what we habe for lunch, and we make it together! He loves being included, and I love the quality time I get with him! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Just love cooking and eating different things, we experiment with different recipies picked by different people in the family……it really gets everyone involved!

  4. Lately my husband and I have been enjoying a new tradition -teaming up and cooking a month’s worth of meals in one day. Something that started out intimidating to us has turned into a great date. We send the toddler off with a friend, open a bottle of wine (or two) order pizza, and blast our favorite tunes. We end up with with a packed freezer, and a happier team.

  5. We’re working on family traditions since our kids are now old enough to help bake/cook stuff. One of their favorite things to do is decorate cookies for whatever holiday it is! They had a blast doing turkey cookies!

    Everyone getting along baking christmas cookies!! This last year, I was doing the baking, my parents were frosting and my sister was decorating. Then we all enjoyed cookies together it was so much fun!!

    As a young mom with 3 kids under the age of 3 at the time, the only way I could cook or bake each day was to keep the kids in the kitchen with me. The only way I could make sure that they all remained in sight was to turn on the “tunes”…we could sing all the kids faves by heart! Now that they are all grown and growing their own families times in the kitchen are few and far between, but when they all come home for a visit, they all end up in the kitchen…of course the music we listen to has evolved! lol…cannot wait for grandbabies to join in the tradition and learn to cook and appreciate good music with me now! ;D

    Baking cookies with my twin boys… Seeing how happy they are knowing they are helping and then watching them light up when they get to eat them is the best part.

  9. I have many traditions I’m beginning with my children, but one of my favorite activities in the kitchen is to do candy making. So now my 10 year old helps me to dip strawberries, pretzels, oreos etc into chocolate treats that we give to our friends and neighbors every time a holiday (or any good excuse comes along) comes up….

    My favorite tradition has been one that connects me to my new family! Every Thanksgiving I make my husband’s aunt’s sweet potato rolls recipe. He loves that it reminds him of home (we live 3,000 away from all family) and I love that it is now a tradition for our family.

  11. Christina Speth

    Our family tradition was simply FUN! My mom was so full of energy it was contagious. Whether it was licking the beaters, chasing each other around the island, or simply singing along to some country music while we stirred (the most common); I knew early on that if cooking couldn’t be fun it wasn’t worth the time ;o)

    My favorite family tradition is baking birthday pies for the men in my life. My grandpa and my dad both preferred apple pie to cake, and lo and behold, when I married my husband, I discovered that he felt the same way! 🙂

  13. Ashley Sovereign

    My husband and I have a running contest (13 years now) with opening new jars of peanut butter. Whoever opens the new jar gets to stick their finger in first and scoop out a dilicious glob…and eat it in front of the other…weird I know! 🙂

  14. Lisa

    My favorite family tradition has to be when my family all get together in the kitchen during special events and holidays! We have so much fun sharing recipes and really have a great time helping each other.

  15. Alisha

    My favorite tradition happens on Christmas Day. My parents come to visit, and my mom and I cook the big meal. We have been cooking together since I was a child. It’s fun now that I’m a real-live grown up, that all the cooking now happens in my house. ;o)

  16. Rachel

    As a mom of two little girls I’m busy starting new family traditions. Every Sunday my oldest (4) pulls her stool up to the counter so she can be my su chef. She’s already great at leveling off flour, unwrapping the butter & licking the beaters!

  17. Erin Hurt

    For Christmas, we always stay at my mom’s house and in the morning, my mom and I will wake up and make Christmas casserole and monkey bread.

  18. Trish Boyd

    This is jelly related but we have a family (even extended family)
    tradition of making meatballs. Every event require meatball subs… meatballs, sauce, and a crockpot…. doesn’t matter ifs a wedding, funeral, or anything inbetween…. meatballs…
    Funny thing – We aren’t even remotely Italian…

  19. cathy kearns

    pizza nights! everyone creates their own masterpiece from scratch……yummy meaty pizzas to sweet dessert pizzas! anything goes! always fun with lots of laughs! great family activity!

  20. Tonya Little

    I love when several generations get together to help with a meal in the kitchen, my kids & I with my mom and grandma, maybe a few aunts. It doesn’t happen much these days, but when it does it warms my heart!

  21. Victoria Szor

    Every Christmas I make homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast, along with all the usual fan fare of Christmas Dinner. I guess it’s pretty simply, but every Holiday or Season there are things the family and I do together, we pick strawberries and raspberries to make jam, we make homemade dinner rolls for Thanksgiving. It’s simple things but traditions that we all look forward to.

  22. Candice

    My favorite kitchen family tradition is cooking fudge with my dad every year around christmas. I stir, while he does all the hard stuff, and we make tons for friends and family. Everyone always tells me my dad makes the best fudge, I just smile because the recipie isn’t even all that secret, I think he just has a special way with it.

  23. mary fanara coleman

    When I grew up as a child my Hungarian mother taught all of her five daughters how to polka in a tiny cramped kitchen.She always had polka music playing in the kitchen daily.So I guess this was a tradition that we grew up since it makes me smile and stands out in my mind.

  24. Favorite family tradition in the kitchen…. I LOVE seeing my boys lick the beaters from whatever cake, cookie, or brownie mix I’m making. The smiles and giggles that ensue are precious, yes… even at nearly 13 and nearly 10! 🙂
